NASA scientists say a massive solar flare is headed to earth this weekend.
The flare is hurling towards earth at more than 850 miles per second.
It won't affect us much on the ground, but it will interact with the upper atmosphere.
"We're going to get auroras," the Houston Museum of Natural Science's Dr. Carolyn Sumner said. "We've warned the satellite people that there may be some disruption, so we're getting very good at preparing for this type of thing, but it's just exciting to see the sun doing something again."
Any disruption in satellite communication is expected to be minimal.
But Sumner said we're expecting a much bigger solar flare next year which could have a big impact on satellites and power grids.
