Alhamdulillah, segala pujian di panjatkan kehadrat Allah kerana masih lagi memberi peluang kepada kita untuk beramal ibadat dan bagi mendapatkan keampunan dan keredhaannya. Semalam sekali lagi bumi di asak dengan ribut solar yang paling kuat 10x ganda dari biasa tetapi syukur ia menghala kearah tidak mendatangkan mudarat yang besar dibumi.
Strongest solar storm!
WASHINGTON: One of the strongest solar storms in years engulfed Earth last night, but scientists say the planet may have lucked out.
Hours after the storm arrived, officials said there were no reports of problems with power grids, satellites or other technologies that are often disrupted by solar storms.
But that still can change as the storm shakes the planet's magnetic field in ways that could disrupt technology but also spread colourful Northern Lights. Early indications show that it is about 10 times stronger than the normal solar wind that hits Earth.
The storm started with a massive solar flare and grew as it raced outward from the sun, expanding like a giant soap bubble, scientists said.
The storm struck at about 1100GMT in a direction that causes the least amount of problems, said Joe Kunches, a scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Space Weather Prediction Centre.
"It's not a terribly strong event. It's a very interesting event," he said.
