Largest Solar Flare in Five Years brings Northern Lights, but with a price of GPS and Communication impacts.

The largest Solar Flare in Five years is currently effecting the Earth bringing a torrent of Northern Lights to a great deal of the world’s population, behind all this beauty though you can expect satellite degradation and impacts to communications worldwide. Plus there is the possible impacts on transcontinental flights going over the poles.

The video above is from our partner Solarwatcher and his analysis on this extreme event.
