There is a danger of a massive solar storm with the power of a billion hydrogen bombs following a huge explosion that sent out an ‘X-class’ flare last week, it has been reported.

Earth could be affected by a terrifying solar storm that has the power of billion hydrogen bombs, it has been claimed.

The Daily Star reports that a huge explosion on the far side of the Sun spat out a potential “X-class” flare earlier this month, leading astronomers to warn of a possible solar storm in the near future.

The ‘X-class’ flare is one of the most powerful the sun can produce and only “narrowly” missed Earth during the scary ordeal.

But the area on the Sun’s surface that was responsible for the blast could soon be pointed at us again.

And in the worst-case scenario, we could see major continent-wide power blackouts as a result.

Former NASA astronomer Tony Phillips said: “Given the size and complexity of this large active region, there’s a good chance the explosions will continue in the days ahead.”

The solar flare, which fired out a scorching-hot plasma dome, caused a shortwave radio blackout in New Zealand and Australia.

The most distant stars in the Milky Way – more than 200 mysterious suns in the “stellar halo” far beyond a satellite galaxy known as the Large Magellanic Cloud – have been discovered by astronomers at the University of California, US.

Warnings of a terrifying solar storm come as Brits saw history in the making with the launch of a first-ever UK rocket, with the help of a Boeing 747.

The Virgin Orbit Boeing 747 carrying the first rocket to launch into space from UK soil took off from Spaceport Cornwall near Newquay on Monday evening.

The 747, dubbed Cosmic Girl, took off horizontally from the new facility while carrying the rocket under a wing.
