Solar storms can be associated with CMEs (Coronal Mass Ejections) which are large solar eruptions of charged particles. These storms can cause damage to satellites in orbit, telecommunications, navigation systems and infrastructure on Earth. For this reason, rapid prediction of these events is very important. INAF-Turin Astrophysical Observatory has developed an innovative forecasting algorithm (called Geomagnetic Effectiveness tool) based on the analysis of in-situ measurements of CMEs acquired by orbiting satellites. This tool has been integrated into the ESA Space Weather Service Network. This application has successfully predicted the geomagnetic storm of Sunday 5 November 2023, nine hours before it happened.
