Solar Flares Disrupt Communications on Earth, Could Send Shockwave on Friday the 13th

The sun has had three major solar flares on its surface in the past two days that have affected communications on Earth and could send a shockwave through Earth this Friday, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
 
One of the flares created a “coronal mass ejection” that actually could come into contact with Earth on Friday, according to NOAA. The ejection is essentially a huge cloud of plasma that could hit the Earth and cause a shock wave, affecting communications systems.

Flame

A force equal to billions of atomic bombs

travels millions of kilometers per hour,

reaches Earth in three days.

 

A solar storm will disturb the atmosphere

induce currents in power lines

trigger voltage collapse

and bring the twenty-first century down.

 

Now, at the peak of the solar cycle,

the Sun, like a busy fetus turning and kicking,

is flipping its magnetic field one hundred eighty.

 

A cyclical increase in sunspots

will produce violent flares

and propel charged particles

into space.

 

The solar wind.

 

Magnetized plasma will slam

into Earth, sending out electrical

currents like cockroaches seeking dark.

 

Auroras will appear at the outer banks

of Earth’s atmosphere, visible

as far south as the equator.

 

Streets will be dark,

water pumps silent.

 

Ice will melt in the freezer.
