ASTRO WATCH A G1-class (minor) geomagnetic storm is expected to hit our planet on Tuesday, July 24 when a high-speed stream of solar wind is expected to hit Earth's magnetic field. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) estimates that there is a 65 percent chance that the gaseous material flowing from the Sun will trigger minor storming on Earth. “A G1 (minor) geomagnetic storm watch has been issued for July 24 due to the anticipated arrival of a recurrent coronal hole high speed stream [CH 3 weeks
