A massive coronal hole on our Sun is turning to face the Earth in the coming days and is releasing solar wind which could reach Earth as early as Wednesday causing wonderful auroras and more major quakes?.
Coronal holes are considered by many experts to be the primary factor for causing large earthquakes so keeps your eyes open and your ears peeled.
Earlier this month a massive coronal hole opened facing the Earth resulting in 8 major quakes in as many days including the massive mag 7.8 in the Solomon Islands
This "coronal hole" is a region where the sun's magnetic field has opened up, allowing solar wind to escape. A stream of solar wind emerging from this coronal hole could reach Earth as early as Dec. 19th and influence the near-space environment of our planet for several days. G1-class geomagnetic storms and high-latitude auroras are possible when the solar wind arrives.
