Oh man! What a perfect way to round out 2020, hit us with the kill shot this month then "giant meteor 2020" in November!

Good thing my entire house is covered in a Faraday Cage.



I prefer wrapping head in tinfoil - keeps out all those transmissions from the CIA ……...

Not being sarcastic here but are you referring to the really hard place as the trail from the ort cloud or something other ? Love your avatar by the way. a reply to: Rekrul

Probably talking about the "local fluff." Something the solar system has been traversing for a very long time. The solar wind keeps it at bay.

But it's not that much to keep at bay. 0.3 atoms per cubic centimeter. Think about that. That's not a lot of atoms.

Has happened before

1989 Quebec Hydro blackout was caused by geomagnetic storm which tripped circuit breakers in transmission lines

en.wikipedia.org...

Worse observed solar storm was 1859 Carrington event , named after astronomer Richard Carrington

Only electronic devices in use was the telegraph - operators reported sparks coming from sets as the telegraph wires acted as giant antenna to pick up the energy from the interaction of charged particles with earth magnetic fields

AKA the equivalent of an EMP (electro Magnetic pulse)

Indeed.
But there has been no important CME recently and there is not much chance of severe geomagnetic storm. This week.
www.swpc.noaa.gov...
But maybe astrologers know something that solar scientists don't.

Telegraph was an electrical device, not electronic. Relatively high voltages can be produced in long conductors (like telegraph wires, and power lines, and pipelines, and fences) during geomagnetic events . This is caused by magnetic induction as the Earth's magnetic field "wiggles," It is not an EMP and can last for hours.

The sun is still as weak as the earth when it comes to the gravitational pull to the center of our galaxy. You know we have a black hole in the milky-way


And Black Holes Matter, just ask any ho and they tell ya.

What is up with this story?

Astrology?

Is a horoscope specialist reading it in the tarot cards?

Bad translation?

I think this is from last week. There was a glancing blow from a G1 on Thursday the 20th.

Clearly, the storm cloud is not heading directly for Earth. However, NOAA models of the CME’s trajectory suggest it could deliver a glancing blow to Earth’s magnetic field on August 20th. Minor geomagnetic storms and high-latitude auroras are possible when the CME arrives. Stay tuned.

The previous solar maximum was in April of 2014 (Solar cycle 24).

NOAA showed one on the 23, I posted a gif of the clip with the date on it in the OP.

If you watch the clip you can see the CME come from the sun at about the 8:00 position.

thanks for the heads up..I think you mean't ASTRONOMY (not astrology) hopefully nothing bad happens

Experts in astrology are keeping a close eye on a solar storm that is due to take place across Thursday and Friday and which could have indirect effects on the earth such as causing problems in telecommunications and electricity systems.

The solar storm is being provoked by a coronal mass ejection, a massive burst of solar wind and radiation that emanates from the sun during a period of maximum solar activity. It is anticipated this solar event could hit the earth on Thursday or Friday, according to space weather physicist Doctor Tamitha Skov. The phenomenon could also produce auroras borealis at medium-altitude range.

No mention of this on spaceweather.com at this time.

It is on NOAA's space weather site.


I doubt we will see black outs. But you never know, it is 2020.

It is the start, before you see the CME, from the NOAA website.

You have to watch the clip from the 23d. Not the one on the NOAA site now.

There is no animated GIF in your OP.

You can go here to select any date range you wish. There was no CME on the 23rd.

Telegraph was an electrical device, not electronic.

In common usage, the difference is semantics. Technically, a device is electronic when it uses internally regulated currents and/or voltages, and is electric when it does not. However, common usage rarely references that difference.


Relatively high voltages can be produced in long conductors (like telegraph wires, and power lines, and pipelines, and fences) during geomagnetic events .

Correct. The actual phenomenon is described by Maxwell's Equations.


This is caused by magnetic induction as the Earth's magnetic field "wiggles,"

I was not aware the magnetic field of the earth twerked. Can you provide some evidence of that claim?


It is not an EMP and can last for hours.

The poster you replied to stated it was "like" an EMP. All magnetic induction is "like" an EMP, even a transformer which lasts for years. The only difference is that an EMP is a single pulse, while inductance from an alternating source acts as a series of continual pulses.

I will, however, agree with you wholeheartedly: there is no danger that I have seen. Perhaps the astrologers know something astronomers do not though? Like how a radiation wave from the sun can hit the planet from the north or south?

Among the effects the solar storm could have are potential problems in radio transmission and satellite communications as well as electricity supply cut-offs, If the radiation wave strikes from a southern direction. If it arrives from the north, it will likely not cause any issues as it will bounce off the earth’s magnetosphere.

Come to think of it, when did they start making magnetic fields out of rubber? I never saw one bounce before. Deflect maybe...
