Massive solar storm is headed towards Earth, a space weather version of a small hurricane.. Remember, do not look directly at the Sun while the plasma filament is rupturing the atmosphere...

Massive solar storm


The current plasma burst from the sun stems from an M5 flare on Monday and is projected to arrive late Wednesday. This probability forecast is based on current solar wind conditions measured at L1, but using a fixed 30-minute delay time between L1 and Earth.

An M class flare?

Please explain why anyone should "bug out."

What?

Wait till night, then head for the hills.

I used to send solar events to bugs as a kid... poor little ants..

Cool...I'll keep my eye out for the Northern Lights.

If the skies are clear on Wednesday night, look up — you may get a chance to see the northern lights. The U.S. Space Weather Prediction Center has issued a strong geomagnetic storm watch for late Sept. 6 and 7, which means there's a good chance to see dancing colours across the starry night sky.

It could trigger a tipping point by providing Hurricane Irma with additional torsion flux ..

False.
(please provide an explanation of how trosion flux (whatever that is) can affect a hurricane)

I panicked, I saw "bug-out" come across my twitter as I was binging on an anime show.

I stopped my anime, quickly grabbed a munchie to absorb the sudden influx of acid racing into my gut.. The scenarios rolling through my head like crazy. "What is coming!?" "It's it NIBIRU?" "Did Yellowstone finally pop?" "Did America just nuke North Korea and China has retaliated with a nuclear exchange?"

And here I sit.. disappointed that it's only an "M5" flare?

So.. From the 6th to the 7th satellite communications, cell phone calls, and perhaps GPS will be a bit spotty. No reason to bug out over that.

I'm going back to my anime.

Oh.

I thought you might have said something like magnetohydrodynamics. But you foxed me.

M-class flares are nothing to bug out over.

X-class flares on the other hand, might warrant some worry if they're strong enough. You know, like Carrington was.

Unless you meant something else.

No, I meant Carrington, lol. I somehow managed to skip the V key and hit B instead. I'm talented like that.

Well crap, sorry for jinxing us.

X-Flare!

Region 2673 just produced a major X2.1 solar flare at approximately 09:10 UTC (Sept 6). This is the first X-Class event to be detected since May 2015. The active region is still in a decent position for Earth directed eruptions. More updates will be provided should a coronal mass ejection (CME) be associated. More to follow.

With any luck, it'll be a glancing blow.

For reference, the Carrington event is estimated to have been an X-45, while the biggest ever recorded with instruments in 2003 (I think it was '03) was an X-28.

For further reference, it is not a solar flare which may be problematic. In fact, a solar flare in an of itself has little affect on the Earth's surface.
