Federal forecasters warned that Earth is expected to experience "geomagnetic disturbances" from oncoming solar storms.
The space agency describes them as looking like "huge, twisted rope" and claiming to be caused by solar flares.
The most recent coronal mass ejection from November 3 is more likely to have an Earth-directed component and may reach Earth afterwards.
All this activity makes for an interesting forecast challenge and expected conditions are still being evaluated.
A solar storm is a solar disturbance that may have far-reaching consequences for Earth and the rest of the solar system.
Space weather, such as solar flares and coronal mass ejections, and phenomena like the aurora borealis accompany this phenomenon.
Coronal mass ejections, as defined by NASA, are "huge bubbles of coronal plasma threaded by intense magnetic field lines that are ejected.
