Forecast of the magnetic storm

Forecast of the magnetic storm

On Earth began the magnetic storm. The index of geomagnetic indignations of Kp in the morning on Saturday reached value 5. 5 is a minimum level which is considered the magnetic storm, and then the index rose to 6. The reason of geomagnetic indignations can be the stream of a high-speed solar wind. The stream is the loaded particles which source is the coronal hole on the Sun (rather dark area on a solar disk with open lines of a magnetic field). This hole was noticed in pictures from the “Stereo” probe on the invisible part of the Sun 10 days ago. Then scientists predicted that on June 28-29 when it comes to our part, the magnetic storm of moderate force can begin.
