An X3 Flare just exploded from sunspot AR2192, which is currently directly facing Earth.

AR2192 is as big as the planet Jupiter, so if there is a CME to accompany this flare, it will almost certainly make a direct hit.

I guess that's a bad thing?

Not extremely affluent on this science.

Nice catch.


Should be some spectacular auroras in the next day or two.

Not sure we have anything to worry about unless it hurled out a CME.

It can be a bad thing is it's strong enough. It has the potential to disrupt radio communications, satellites, and even overload our electrical grid. I don't think this flare is strong enough to affect the grid, but it could possibly disrupt satellites, and of course create some brilliant northern lights!

Good thing our magnetosphere is in such good shape !
whew...
oh wait..
What's a south Atlantic anomoly again ?

Directly at us with a CME?

Well, not a good thing.

We have weathered it before but a direct hit is always a "Wait and See" especially with more and more of our World relying on the grid. Knock it out and we are back in the stone age for years.

Not meant to panic but it's always good to prep for at least an outage of at least a temporary state. X-Flare or not.

Peace

Do you know if there is a chart somewhere as to the levels and their effects?

I assume X3 is followed by X2, then X1 or vice versa. It might be good to understand this better hearing more and more about them lately. All I remember from the doom porn threads is that a big one will send us into the dark ages.

Add: found it on your link, thanks!

Hopefully a good light show that someone will get some excellent pics of. If there is a CME associated, how long til it hits?

It usually takes 24-48 hours to reach us. We still have to wait and see if there's a CME though.

It's such general information in a way. What I'd like to really know is what part of the planet will be most affected and is it time to bring the car battery indoors?

well Ed Dames on C2C is stating the kill shot has begun with sunspot AR2192 So far most of the flares produced by this sun spot hasn't produced many CME's but we will see

It depends which side of the Earth is facing the sun when the CME arrives. I don't think you'll have to worry about electricity this time, but it never hurts to be prepared I suppose.

These always put me on alert not just because of their potential impact, but also just seems like a perfect opportunity for a false flag EMP operation using the CME as a cover.

Hey LDragonFire. I actually read your thread earlier this morning. Ed Dames has been wrong so many times that I don't even pay attention to him anymore. Maybe he finally got something right though! We'll see.

Unfortunately with his kill shot he only needs to be right once...

I believe we had an X yesterday the effects could stack also by tomorrow this will update and SO will detail what the flare is doing. very helpful descriptions with the sun stuff.

Aparently AR12192 has produced 2 X class flares in the past 5 days. Definitely worth keeping an eye on. S&F

Hopefully its strong enough so we can see the light show here in north Georgia, like we did 2011
