Solar Tsunami 2010 to hit Earth at any time
Threat to destroy satellites and global communication grids

The Sun's surface erupted early Sunday bursting out tons of plasma into space directly towards the Earth.
This Space storms are strong enough to hit Satellites, Communication and Power in Earth.
  • The Ionized atoms should hit the Earth tonight.
  • Sources said possible destruction to satellites in orbit.
"This eruption is directed right at us and is expected to get here early in the day on Aug. 4th," said Leon Golub of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. "It's the first major Earth-directed eruption in quite some time."
NASA's Solar dynamic Observatory captures high-definition views of the Sun in variety of wavelengths.

When a Mass ejection from Sun reaches Earth leads to stream down our planets' magnetic field lines towards the poles.
Dr Lucie Green, of the Mullard Space Science Laboratory, Surrey, said "These eruptions occur when immense magnetic structures in the solar atmosphere lose their stability and can no longer be held down by the sun's huge gravitational pull. Just like a coiled spring suddenly being released, they erupt into space."
"This means we have a very good chance of seeing major and prolonged effects, such as the northern lights at low latitudes."

The Nitrogen and Oxygen in the Earth's atmosphere collision with particles from the Sun which then glow similar to miniature neon signs.

Sky watchers in the northern U.S look toward the Curtains of Green and Red light.
The Solar Particles could also affect satellites.This may cause 15 satellites out of action.
