Solar storm travelling at 1.3 million kilometres per hour to hit Earth tomorrow - Daily Express

An "erupting filament of magnetism" has been spewed into the solar system by the Sun at 328 kilometres per second, and it could collide with Earth.

The solar storm has been caused by a swirling pool of magnetism beneath the surface of the Sun, known as a sunspot.

However, as the magnetic field builds, it increases pressure in the sunspot which can erupt as a solar flare or coronal mass ejection (CME).

A solar storm of this power can lead to “weak power grid fluctuations” and can have a “minor impact on satellite operations”.

Hurled toward Earth by an erupting filament of magnetism on May 9, the solar storm cloud is expected to arrive on May 12 or 13.

While this solar storm is largely insignificant, some experts have warned a major solar storm is a matter of "when not if"

Every so often, the Sun releases a solar flare which in turn blasts energy into space

Previous studies have revealed the Sun releases an extreme solar flare every 25 years on average, with the last Earth-hitting one coming in 1989
