Solar flares due to light up the sky

Posted:

 

Solar flares are shooting out of the sun and are due to create quite the display in the sky. But they may also cause problems for GPS, satellites and power grids. 

Its the particles from the solar flares shooting towards earth that's causing Wisconsin Public Service and scientists to monitor the sun storm more closely in the next couple of days.

But, experts say it's the North Pole that will be most affected by the flares, leaving Wisconsin with only a mild taste of the sun storm.
