After a warning from the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), SapceX postponed the rocket launch plan by 4.5 hours; while the Canadian platform encountered problems as the GPS signal was disrupted.

According to the sheet Spacethese are the effects that have just been reported after an attack Geomagnetic storm type G3 swept across the Earth on February 27. The rocket launch mentioned is SpaceX’s previously announced plan to put 21 Starlink satellites into orbit from Florida (USA).
After the storm subsided a few hours later, the SpaceX rocket was finally able to lift off at 6:13 p.m. local time (equivalent to 6:13 a.m. on February 28, Vietnam time).
SpaceX has been cooperating with NOAA since an unfortunate incident last February, which caused the company to lose a batch of 40 satellites after launching them into a relatively mild geomagnetic storm, but enough to cause the satellites to crash. “to spill” towards Earth and burns in the atmosphere.
In addition to SpaceX’s problems, the Canadian side also reported having to temporarily suspend operations of some oil rigs due to GPS signal disruptions during the geomagnetic storm.
Geomagnetic storm is an electrically charged storm that hits Earth from space and originates from our Sun, which is why it is also called Sunstorm.
Solar storms often give Earthlings a glimpse of magnificent auroras, but can also damage power grids, radio systems, GPS, cause problems with satellites, and even cause migratory birds to lose their way.
