UPDATE: Geomagnetic Storm for May 6, 2018

Geomagnetic K-Index of 6 expected on May 6th 2018. Area of impact primarily poleward of 55 degrees Geomagnetic Latitude.

Potential Impacts are as follows: Induced Currents – Power grid fluctuations can occur. High-latitude power systems may experience voltage alarms. Spacecraft – Satellite orientation irregularities may occur; increased drag on low Earth-orbit satellites is possible.

Radio – HF (high frequency) radio propagation can fade at higher latitudes. Aurora – Aurora may be seen as low as New York to Wisconsin to Washington state.

May 4th 2018 Geomagnetic Report:
Cutting across half of the solar disk, a wide hole in the Sun’s atmosphere is turning toward Earth and spewing a stream of solar wind toward our planet. This extreme ultraviolet image from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory shows the gaseous canyon.

This is a coronal hole – a region where the Sun’s magnetic field opens up and allows gaseous material to escape. It looks dark because the hot glowing gas previously contained there is missing. NOAA forecasters say G1-class geomagnetic storms are possible when the solar wind arrives on May 6th or 7th. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras, especially in the southern hemisphere when deepening autumn darkness favors visibility of Southern Lights. Free: Aurora Alerts.

Mitch Battros is a scientific journalist who is highly respected in both the scientific and spiritual communities due to his unique ability to bridge the gap between modern science and ancient text. Founded in 1995 – Earth Changes TV was born with Battros as its creator and chief editor for his syndicated television show. In 2003, he switched to a weekly radio show as Earth Changes Media. ECM quickly found its way in becoming a top source for news and discoveries in the scientific fields of astrophysics, space weather, earth science, and ancient text. Seeing the need to venture beyond the Sun-Earth connection, in 2016 Battros advanced his studies which incorporates our galaxy Milky Way - and its seemingly rhythmic cycles directly connected to our Solar System, Sun, and Earth driven by the source of charged particles such as galactic cosmic rays, gamma rays, and solar rays. Now, "Science Of Cycles" is the vehicle which brings the latest cutting-edge discoveries confirming his published Equation.
