You may want to spend Wednesday in your respective doomsday bunker. That’s because some sun spots are heading towards earth.

NASA tracked a dark hole on the sun’s surface, which is expected to launch a massive solar storm, sending solar flares towards earth on Wednesday.

Sunspots are caused by extreme magnetic activity.

The sunspots are not expected to cause any major damage, but could have an impact on electronic gadgets.

Solar flares regularly affect power grids and satellites.
