Dr. Taj Bhutta Inspires Westminster Tutors Physics Students with Timely Astronomical Insights

Dec 1, 2023

Physics teacher at Westminster Tutors, Dr. Taj Bhutta, disseminates to students that a massive solar storm, known as a coronal mass ejection (CME), is predicted to impact Earth on December 1, causing potential disruptions in radio, internet, and GPS signals. The storm could interfere with Earth’s magnetic field, making vibrant auroras visible in mid-latitudes. US forecasters, including the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), anticipate the arrival of three solar storms, potentially merging to create more substantial disruptions. This scenario raises the likelihood of G3-level magnetic storms and auroras, potentially impacting amateur radio and GPS reception.
