NOAA issued a G3, or “strong”, geomagnetic storm watch for Saturday and Sunday before the eruption hit Earth. The geomagnetic storm scale ranges from G1, or minor storm, to G5, an extreme storm.

This geomagnetic storm could cause voltage irregularities and false alarms on some protective devices, warns NOAA. It could also cause high frequency radio power outages and loss of radio contact on the sunny side of the earth.

The most visible effect of the impending geomagnetic storm is that it will likely overload the Northern Lights, making them visible across much of the United States and Europe.

In Europe, forecasts show that, weather permitting, the Northern Lights can be visible over Norway, Sweden and Finland, and even as far south as Scotland and St. Petersburg, in Russia.

It can be seen on the horizon as far south as Dublin, Ireland and Hamburg, Germany.

The aurora australis, or aurora australis, will see similar effects.
