Quotes

"There are all sorts of things lurking below the surface" Scott McIntosh, first author of the research said
...This solar flare was an M6.5; according to NASA, such mid-level flares "can cause brief radio blackouts at the poles and minor radiation storms that might endanger astronauts."
..."Harmful radiation from a flare cannot pass through Earth's atmosphere to physically affect humans on the ground," NASA says. "However — when intense enough — they can disturb the atmosphere in the layer where GPS and communications signals travel." According to NASA's space weather alerts  for the last few days, there may have been some radio static and momentary blackouts on some parts of the planet...
"Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), it looks like the bulk of the plasma blob from the 29 March CME missed the Earth. Forecasters are not looking for much of a chance of elevated geomagnetic storms for the next couple of days" according to a post issued on the space agency's Facebook
