On the night of 6 to 7 September and from 7 to 8 September residents of some Russian regions will have the opportunity to see the Aurora.

Deputy Director on scientific and methodical work of the Large Novosibirsk planetarium Ilya Orlov, quoted by the portal ngs.ru reported that soon the Earth will begin a powerful geomagnetic storm, which can slightly affect the well-being weather-sensitive people throughout tomorrow. Also there may be some disruptions in communication systems. Much more pleasant consequence of solar flares will be the Aurora. However, the scientist said that on the territory of the Novosibirsk see it will be difficult because of too much urban exposure and not ideal for such observations to the weather conditions.

The expert also noted that, though the solar flares happen quite regularly, now Shine is on a fairly “quiet” stage, the eleven-year cycle of fluctuations of activity, so a series of powerful flares, to some extent, was for the scientists by surprise.

According to several other media, Northern lights with some probability will also get a chance to see the residents of Tyumen, Irkutsk region, Kirov and other cities.

The most powerful geomagnetic storm on Earth caused by strong solar flare was registered in September 1859 — then the Aurora was observed almost in all the Earth, and in Europe and America are massively denied the Telegraph system. Some studies of the rings of old trees suggests that in 775, and then 993 years BC, still ten times more powerful.

Some scientists even admit that one day in the Sun may occur the so-called super outbreak, which could have catastrophic effects on the Earth. Still, the experts recorded similar only on other stars.
