You may have heard of power outages, but what about a sun outage?

A sun outage is a disruption in satellite signals caused by interference from solar radiation.

Basically, the satellite signals are overwhelmed by the sun’s radiation.

In the northern hemisphere, this usually occurs around March and September.

In Hawaii, a sun outage is expected this Sunday, between 7-7:30 a.m.

NFL on FOX will be airing the Detroit @ New York Jets game at that time. KHON2 is taking steps to ensure there will be no disruption.
