The year's most powerful solar storm could hit Earth today.

NASA has since Wednesday observed the solar storm that can, if it is strong enough, cause power outages, disrupt mobile phones and shut down everything from radio communications and GPS signals to the water supply. At least the warning from NASA says so.

The solar storm has already caused radio crashes, and American experts have issued a warning against a geomagnetic storm that could hit Earth on Friday.

Solar storms have their starting point in an explosion on the sun's surface that sends extreme radiation toward Earth at the speed of light.

Some hours later energy particles follows, and these electrons and protons can damage satellite's electronics.

Then comes a so-called coronal mass ejection - a giant cloud of magnetic plasma that can potentially disrupt Earth's magnetic field and do great damage to electrical circuits.

Americans and Canadians could be hit hard as large parts of their power grid is above ground and thus works like an antenna.

When there is an eruption on the sun, we know on Earth shortly after, but how hard we will be hit, we'll know only a few hours before.

It takes about three days for a solar storm to hit Earth. The first to be hit are the satellites that are closest to the sun, and from there we only have a few hours to find out how big it will get.
