The geomagnetic storm lasted more than 39 hours, UNAM reports

The UNAM Institute of Geophysics reported that the geomagnetic storm that began on May 10 and produced the sighting of the northern lights in Mexico, lasted more than 39 hours.

“Mexico’s regional geomagnetic indices (kmex) indicate undisturbed values for more than 9 hours, so we can consider that the severe geomagnetic storm event has ended,” the institute explained on Sunday, May 12th.

He also warned of the possibility of “another solar storm arriving in the Earth’s environment in the coming hours.”

A geomagnetic storm, also called a solar storm, is a temporary disturbance of the Earth’s magnetosphere that can be caused by a solar wind shock wave and/or a coronal mass ejection interacting with the Earth’s magnetic field.​
