NASA warns “beauty and the animal” Northern Lights can wipe out power lines and electronics on Earth

NASA has shared a fantastic image of the northern lights in Iceland but warned that Aurora could wipe out power lines and electronics on earth.

The image captures aurora borealis over the Thingvallavatn lake in Iceland.
Casado pictured the caption: “Admire the beauty but the horror is the innocence.

” The beauty is the surplus surplus, here in the form of a large green spiral, seen between picturesque clouds with the bright moon to the side and the stars in the background. [19659002] “The animal is the wave of charged particles that creates Aurora but can in one day weaken civilization.”

The natural light display happens when electrically charged particles from the sun collide with particles in the earth’s atmosphere. [19659010] What is the Northern Lights?

The natural light display happens when electrically charged particles from the sun collide with particles in the earth’s atmosphere.

The amazing sight happens over the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemisphere.

The color variations occur when different types of gas particles collide.

The most common auroal color is a pale yellow green created by oxygen molecules.

This is usually harmless but boffins warn if there is a particularly strong sun flame it can release a pulse of charged particles e that could put down the earth’s communication network.

It only happened once before 1859 and it was called “Carrington Event” and it caused telegraph threads to kick and it shocked telegraph operators.

Casado said if a similar event were to happen today “that damage can occur on global power grids and electronics on a scale that has never been experienced.”

What is the Carrington Event?

The sun from 1859, also known as Carrington Event, was a geomagnetic storm.

September 1, 1859.

The current caused large auroral screens but caused chaos for telegraph systems.
