On Sept 7th the sun's eastern limp propelled a "Mega solar flare." This solar flare was an X17, which is up there on the most extreme solar flares to date.



The blast caused a complete blackout of HF radio transmissions on the daylit side of Earth. Emergency personnel in hurricane-hit areas of the U.S. Gulf Coast may have experienced problems with their communications gear for minutes to hours after the flare.

Here is a chart from the NOAA Space Environment Center:



This video from SOHO is amazing. You can see the solar flare in real time.

More and more often we are seeing unprecedented Solar flares. Who knows what this may mean. It may just be a natural occurring cycle of the sun, or something bigger. You be the judge!

Just to note that this is the 4th biggest solar flare in over 30 years. Hopefully it didn't interfere too much with the rescue operarations in the Gulf Coast.

That reminds me of something I saw on a sci-fi show once, there was a huge burst in solar flare activity, and they were growing in intencity, and in the end the sun turned blue, but everyone was saved, because some alien music got picked up by a college kid, and his little sister liked it, and it spread, than when they figured out what it was, they spread it worldwide, but anyways, maybe the sun is about to go through some sort of change, or maybe there is an object effecting it, perhaps the theoried "Nemesis star.

Hopefully it will not knock out cell phones, because in some parts of New Orleans, that is all that they have left.

Yep they turned to a shiny gold color. (I wonder how much money I could get seling one of them.)
Oh and I also remembered what show it was, it was an episode of "The outer limits".


Oh, and its quite strange, all this solar activity.
