A SOLAR storm that zoomed past Earth recently might create problems for satellites and the country’s power grid, experts say.
The July 1 CME hit is part of a rash of solar storms as the Sun goes through a period of heightened activity.
A CME is a solar eruption called a coronal mass ejection, which is a huge expulsion of plasma from the Sun's outer layer, called the corona.
This mass ejection of particles from the Sun travels through space and the Earth uses its magnetic field to protect us from it.

“A CME passed close to Earth on July 1st. It did not directly strike our planet's magnetic field.”
Scientists had predicted that a “near miss” might have implications for the globe’s magnetic field.
“Instead, it made itself known by "snowplowing" dense plasma in our direction,” the SpaceWeather.com experts said.
According to the website, in Upper Midwest states like Minnesota and further west in the state of Washington there were some issues.

“The near-miss caused a minor G1-class geomagnetic storm with auroras.”
Auroras are one of the positives of solar storms.
The most famous example is the Northern Lights.
Those natural light displays are examples of the Earth's magnetosphere getting bombarded by solar wind, which creates the pretty green and blue shapes in the sky.
The Earth's magnetic field helps to protect us from the more extreme consequences of solar ejections and flares but it can't stop all of them.

This can cause problems with the power grid, satellite communications and even radio blackouts.
In 1989, a strong solar eruption shot so many electrically charged particles at Earth that the Canadian Province of Quebec lost power for nine hours.

Wendy Williams fans fear for ex-daytime host after she shares ‘concerning’ video promoting her new podcast
WENDY Williams has worried fans after she shared a seemingly concerning video of her promoting her new podcast.
The Wendy Williams Show host recently announced her new business venture after stepping away from the limelight to focus on her health.5Wendy Williams has worried fans after she shared a 'concerning' new videoCredit: Instagram 5The talk show host took to Instagram to promote her new podcast in the worksCredit: Instagram
On Tuesday, the 58-year-old took to her podcast's Instagram to assure fans that the recordings were indeed happening.
The quick clip revealed the logo and name of the podcast, The Wendy Experience before the New Jersey native included a message for her fans.
A close-up shot of Wendy appeared with the camera moving side to side as she spoke directly to the lens.
"Co-host, I'm famous, and I'll be back, trust me," she promised.
The words "The Queen" appeared in neon pink cursive lettering at the bottom of the clip, seemingly referencing the TV star.
The camera then zoomed out, showing Wendy sitting on what appeared to be her bed with cheetah-print pillows and bedding.
The mom-of-one donned a black graphic t-shirt and shorts with her long brown hair down for the video message.
She reiterated her statement in her caption, writing: "TRUST ME I will be BACK! #wendyexperiencepodcast #welcome #back #stay #positive #cohost #nyc."Most read in EntertainmentNAIL FAIL Khloe slammed for 'dangerous' razor-sharp nails in photos after welcoming sonPOOR PETE How Pete REALLY feels about split from Kim- and she won't like it one bitSWEET THEO Tristan's baby mama posts rare video of youngest son whom he 'STILL hasn't met'CHEEKY OUTFIT Khloe looks thinner than EVER as her butt nearly spills out of minidress SUPPORTIVE FANS
Wendy's fans expressed their fears for the star in the comments, as some thought she wasn't acting like herself.
One person wrote:: "This is not the Wendy I’m used to seeing. I need the Wendy that I’ve been watching since Day 1!
"I love you, Wendy, but whoever is handling all of this doesn't sit well with me."
Another simply commented: "So concerning."
A third remarked: "Huh? This doesn't even sound like something she would say!"
And a fourth added: "She seems different. Hope she’s ok."
Others shared their support for the troubled daytime talk show host, urging her not to rush back into the spotlight.
One fan said: "I love you, Auntie, but trust me, we would rather see you all healed than bring us the messy gossip. I personally care more about you then than that."
A second fan pleaded: "We absolutely love you, Wendy!! But before you come back, make sure your mentality, physically and emotionally ready."NOT HAPPENING
A source close to Wendy previously dished on her new passion project, claiming there are no deals in place and major podcast carriers have passed on working with her.
Another source told The Sun: "These interviews are just heartbreaking, and she still doesn’t have a podcast deal. Most big companies have passed, they don’t want her drama, and no one believes she will do the work each day."
The insider added that there isn't a lot of faith in her management right now either.
"She’s trouble, and her team is unprofessional. They don't have much experience in the podcast world, and they aren't keenly aware of the landscape."
A second source in Wendy's inner circle told The Sun: "There is no date for when this podcast is supposed to happen.
"I can't see her being able to put on a podcast. It's weird she is even being put out for these interviews. They're disturbing. It just becomes clearer she isn't ready," they added.ALL GOOD?
Despite fans' concerns about Wendy's behavior, her manager recently exclusively told The Sun he isn't worried for his client.
However, Will did admit she isn't operating as usual these days either.
"I'm not saying she's in perfect condition," Will told The Sun in an interview earlier this month.
"Is there any concern on my behalf? No, I just feel like Wendy is being Wendy. It's a lot for her to take on right now."
"It was a lot for her to deal with," Will said of the veteran daytime host losing her show after more than a decade.Read More on The US SunCOMMON ERROR I'm a lottery expert - you're choosing your jackpot numbers all wrongKEEP SWIMMING!

Will also gave his take on Wendy's actions in an interview she gave to TMZ in which she appeared to have difficulty staying on topic and showed off her swollen foot.
"It was a little wild. I'm going to be very transparent. I'm not gonna sit up here and say that Wendy is perfect and that she's an image of ourselves from heaven. It was a little shaky," Will shared.5However, sources say that there are no deals in place and major podcast carriers have passed on working with herCredit: Dario Alequin for The US Sun 5Wendy has taken a break from the limelight to focus on her health strugglesCredit: Getty 5Her manager recently told The Sun that he's no worried about his client and she's just 'being Wendy'Credit: Dario Alequin for The US Sun
