'Crack' appears in Earth's magnetic field as solar winds batter planet at 400km per second - Daily Express

Space weather forecasters have clocked the solar winds at impressive speeds of about 400 km per second - nearly 895,000 mph.

Although the stream is not expected to trigger a full-blown solar storm, it has caused some minor disturbance within the magnetosphere.

The website said: "Earth is entering a stream of solar winds flowing ~400 km/s from a sinuous hole in the Sun's atmosphere.

Solar winds can reach the planet in a matter of days and possibly turn into a geomagnetic (solar) storm when they get tangled with the planet's magnetic field.

The US Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) explained: "The interaction between the solar wind and Earth’s magnetic field, and the influence of the underlying atmosphere and ionosphere, creates various regions of fields, plasmas, and currents inside the magnetosphere such as the plasmasphere, the ring current, and radiation belts.

Anything above a KP index of four (KP=4) has the potential to start a solar storm, with a KP=5 event considered a G1 Minor event.

The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) confirmed the blackout was caused by the "brightest and most powerful solar flare" observed in about a decade.

In its three-day forecast, the SWPC said: "No G1 (Minor) or greater geomagnetic storms are expected
