Beautiful aurora such as these are caused when energetic particles thrown from the Sun by solar flares interact with the Earth’s magnetic field.  However, particles of sufficient energy can also affect the operations of GPS navigation systems and induce extra currents at ground level to disrupt power grid operations.  Solar flares also produce X-rays that can black out radio communications systems.
