Solar winds from the rupture of a giant “fire canyon” filament on the Sun will hit Earth today (July 20) or tomorrow (July 21), causing a weak G1 geomagnetic storm.

Sun watchers first noticed (will open in a new tab) solar filaments in the form of dark filamentous lines on the background sun bright background on July 12, according to SpaceWeather.com. Then, on July 15, the thread winding in the northern hemisphere of our star, erupted (will open in a new tab)carving roughly 238,880 miles (384,400 kilometers) long and 12,400 miles (20,000 km) deep a “canyon of fire” on the surface of the Sun and spewing solar material right at us.
