The Sun has emitted a HUGE solar flare this morning

Early this morning, the Sun gave out a huge solar flare, peaking at 1.01am UTC.

The solar flare is giving out fast solar winds through the solar system, even catapulting towards Earth.

Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation that can go through the solar system, luckily our atmosphere keeps us humans safe and we wont notice a thing, but they can disturb GPS signals and some atmosphere layers.

These solar flares will arrive at Earth on the 22nd of January, 2 days after the initial solar flare.
