I wouldn't panic just yet. It would take at least a X-5 class solar flare and CME to cause any problems. But it might be wise to pay attention because any more CMEs from AR2158 will be Earth directed.

BUGOUT!!!

Sounds like a great theme for a party. Or psychology experiment.....

What do you bring to a bug out party for food? A bunch of MREs? That's going to be some poor tasting party food.

Ya cook and eat all the food that won't keep and is going to spoil. Fire up the grill...

MREs are gnar....I happen to know where aquatic cattle gather and have the ability to smoke and cure meat....I'll be alright.

Unbelievable, I'm not sure which bit is sadder. That some people don't understand and seem to think it's going to cause a massive EMP type effect more significant than being in close proximity to an high altitude nuclear weapon burst, or that they believe it and their first thought is to come and write about it on a forum...

It's hardly newsworthy unless your a satellite operator, radio operator or into the Northern Lights. Back before the great unwashed had access to this sort of information on the Internet, as a radio ham we used to get updates on solar activity via the packet radio network. The bliss of seeing news like this without the mass hysteria and flapping around online we get now is something I miss.

Yes yes, I would definitely advise using your microwave as a faraday cage and putting your iPad, phones, laptops etc all in there to keep them safe. You need to ensure that you select High power and turn it on for the duration of the event to guarantee the safety of your devices.. Honest!

Well, I am planning on camping in Mount Rainier National Park this weekend...so I am VERY excited at the possibility of seeing the Northern lights!!!

As to bugging out or even being concerned...naw. This isn't much more than a hiccup, in comparison to what CAN happen.

I was wondering about what will happen with this latest one, as it is fast and may catch up with two slower, lesser magnitude CMEs that are supposed to arrive at Earth around the same time. Could they add together to create something bigger, or maybe cancel each other out? As you say though, not a biggie though.

a reply to: westcoast Well keep in mind that it has not happened here yet. The doors of severity are still open. Also it sounds very much like you are bugging out under the guise of a camping trip.lol

eta the pics of the event looks like it has a heart shape.

Wiki mentioned flares up to X28 have been recorded.
The extreme event in 1859 is theorized to have been well over X40

This one doesn't sound like doom.


There was no grid to worry about in 1859.

People used to live off the land...Now we live off the Grid.

Peace


So you think a X1 flare is going to destroy the grid? Then it should be gone by now.


Can't see that you even thought about my post.


Peace

Okay, it's here, just got this text notification from Space Weather:

"A CME has just hit Earth's magnetic field. Strong geomagnetic storms are possible in the hours ahead".

Kinda interesting, they had thought it had slowed down and wouldn't arrive here until late today or tonight.

Uh, hate to break it to you but we had 3 X-class flares already in June. And we've had solar storms every year since the beginning of the universe.

Bugging out is very unnecessary.


I was thinking along those lines also. Anything is possible i guess.

The thing people have to bear in mind is we never really saw images like these before so it can be frightening. If we are still around a few decades from now this will seem routine?

Do you happen to know if those 3 X class flares and cme's in June were earth facing?

Okay, I'm trying to get more info about this CME and according to is it down right now.com space weather.com is down. Guess they're having a lot of traffic.

The site is back up now:

Source: spaceweather.com...


THE SECOND CME HAS ARRIVED: For the second time today, a CME has hit Earth's magnetic field. The first strike, described below, was relatively minor. The second impact, which occured at approximately 1600 UT, could be more potent CME #2 was propelled toward Earth by a powerful X-class solar flare on Sept. 10th. It could spark strong geomagnetic storms extending from Earth's poles to mid-latitudes. Stay tuned for updates about this developing story--and be alert for auroras!


Any experts handy to read the data?

Well seeing how it is the 12th and there have been no news reports about grids being destroyed, let alone disruptive, it is probably safe to say that we survived this one.

Continue on to the next delicious morsel of doom!porn

Not quite time to let this one go. Space weather is predicting the storm to strengthen for tonight and tomorrow. At the very least everyone up north should see quite a show tonight.

Not sure about June but i think they were not earth facing.

When were these predicted to hit? I thought i read the 15th. Did they get here faster than predicted?

The second CME is hitting us now:


THE SECOND CME HAS ARRIVED: For the second time today, a CME has hit Earth's magnetic field. The first strike at ~00:00 UT (described below) was relatively minor. The second impact at ~1600 UT was expected to be more potent. So far, however, CME #2 has not sparked strong geomagnetic activity. Earth's magnetic field has done a good job fending off the effects of the storm cloud. This could change as our planet passes through the wake of the CME. Stay tuned for updates about this developing story--and be alert for auroras!

SOLAR STORM UPDATE: The first of two CMEs expected to hit Earth's magnetic field on Sept. 12th arrived on schedule. Although the geomagnetic storm it provoked was technically only minor (G1-class), Northern Lights were observed as far south as Arizona. Chris Schur photographed the red glow of auroras peaking over the trees in the backyard of his home in Payson, AZ:

If memory serves (which it doesn't always), weren't we hit with an X30+ in August 2003 which caused pretty much no damage at all?
