The effects will begin to be felt as early as tonight, with the phenomenon reaching its maximum peak around 12:00 pm on Friday, 1 December.

The storm follows a coronal mass ejection due to a powerful M9.8 solar flare, the second highest intensity.

NASA warns that this solar storm, classified as a 'Cannibal Coronal Mass Ejection' has the potential to manifest in very vivid aurora borealis in the night sky.

On the other hand, the phenomenon will have impacts on radio and GPS communications, scientists warn.

According to NASA experts, the solar storm will last for about 15 hours.

Regions of the Pacific, South, Central and North America will be the territories most affected by the effects of the space phenomenon.
