Such a powerful solar flare can temporarily disrupt radio frequency signals on Earth. Speculations linking current solar activity to disruptions in mobile phone connections in some parts of the United States on Thursday were dismissed by the Space Weather Prediction Center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
