Sun Unleashes Its First X-Class Monster Flare of 2015

www.nbcnews.com...



The sun unleashed its first super-powerful flare of the year on Wednesday, and the intense eruption was aimed directly at Earth, space weather experts say.

The monster X-class solar flare, the strongest category of sun storms, originated from a sunspot known as Active Region 12297 and peaked at 12:22 p.m. ET. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captured stunning video of the X2.2-class outburst as it erupted.

So when is it getting here? And what part of the Earth will it hit?

Very cool, thanks. That's what you call "self regulating."

The Solar Cycle 24 certainly has brought interresting events.

Its plasmic cloud should reach here today or tomorrow. The radio blackout has already occured, though, since radio waves travel at the speed of light.

Its impact zone:

My wife and I got a headache around the same time yesterday, me one hour earlier. We live in the Green band on that pretty map above. My mother in law told me the headaches were from the Solar Flare...and I'm thinking she is right!

I'm a world class on line golf player.This will definitely effect the stability of my game signal.

It seems there are a bunch of minor CME's all coming in at sometime tonight, while this latest flare is not certain to have a following CME.
Funny noeltrotsky mentioning yesterday, around 8pm yesterday I had a sudden temperature rise as if a start of fever for no good reason that made me feel sick, and I thought I was in for a roooo session. It lasted around half an hour, then I was back to normal, and there was no sweating whatsoever in the aftermath...that was weird!

Thanks.
....but crud. I'm in a low frequency zone, and it's the ULF's that affect heart and brain health. Glad to be warned though! ...Wish the Weather Network would run this kind of info along with UV warnings.

Haha me too! Felt like death for an hour or so, thought it was the flu, and it just went away. a reply to: smurfy

Why do these guys waste so much time taking phortos of sun flares?

They should be putting more effort into curing 'grey hair' syndrome and 'baldness' IMO. And other illnesses!!

It sure was a beautiful one! It's almost time for Easter, Ostara, and the Equinox,... 'tis the season of awakening and rebirth. Cheers!

This one triggered a geomagnetic storm described as geo-effective - meaning it's rebounding all around the planet.


Powerful Solar Storm Rips into Earth's Magnetic Field
MAR 17, 2015

The most powerful solar storm of the current solar cycle is currently reverberating around the globe.

...Our planet has a global magnetic field called the magnetosphere, so should a CME hit the magnetosphere at just the right alignment, the CME’s magnetic field can reconnect, causing intense magnetic disruption, injecting the magnetosphere with huge quantities of plasma from the sun. In this situation, the CME is said to be “geoeffective” and the resulting geomagnetic storm can be extreme.

Today’s storm is so intense that it far overshadows anything that has come before it in our sun’s current solar cycle. ....

...The storm is still ongoing and space weather experts will be closely watching developments. Storms such as these can have global impacts — from overloading powergrids and causing communication outages to satellite damage. [ed. AND HEALTH!]

We had a nice view of the northern lights here in Northeast Ohio last night.
