An X9 solar flare left the Sun at the speed of light Wednesday and will be impacting Earth Thursday

(INTELLIHUB) — On Sept. 6 NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory documented an X9.3 solar flare, the largest since 2006, and it’s striking Earth on Thursday.

Scientists say that radiation from the massive flare will more than likely not penetrate Earth’s atmosphere to harm human, animal, and plant life. However, there is a chance that the flare could knock out parts of the U.S. electrical grid.
