A major flare on the sun has “ionized the top of the Earth’s atmosphere” triggering a low frequency radio blackout over portions of South America and the Atlantic Ocean.
On Sept. 28, 2015 at 10:58 A.M. EDT (or 1458 hours UT), according to Spaceweather.com, Sunspot AR2422, which has been sizzling for days, set off a strong M7-class solar flare which caused the brief blackout.
The sunspot reportedly has an unstable “beta-gamma-delta” magnetic field that may erupt again at any moment.
NOAA forecasters estimate a 40% chance of additional solar flares and a 5% chance of X-flares which could cause planetary radio blackouts during the next 24 hours.
As C2C recently reported a super-solar flare could collapse the entire electrical infrastructure without little warning, sending the Earth back to the dark ages
