Here you go here is the link where you can research yourself. And keep up to date on any new fire balls and also you can report any you may see.

Why can't I get the video (or Pictures, whatever) to load. When I click on any of the controls it's hard...nothing happens. Yet, it works to click on a comment. I'd really like to see this. Can someone tell me what's up?

Everything seems to point to the fact we should be concerned!!

Solar interactions with Earth:

"Changes in total irradiance
Total solar irradiance changes slowly on decadal and longer timescales.
The variation during recent activity cycles has been about 0.1%.[27]
Variations corresponding to solar changes with periods of 9–13, 18–25, and >100 years have been detected in sea-surface temperatures.
Since the Maunder Minimum, over the past 300 years there probably has been an increase of 0.1 to 0.6%, with climate models often using a 0.25% increase.[28]
One reconstruction from the ACRIM data show a 0.04% per decade trend of increased solar output between solar minima over the short span of the data set. These display a high degree of correlation with solar magnetic activity as measured by Greenwich Sunspot Number. [29]

Changes in ultraviolet irradiance
Ultraviolet irradiance (EUV) varies by approximately 1.5 percent from solar maxima to minima, for 200 to 300 nm UV.[30]
Energy changes in the UV wavelengths involved in production and loss of ozone have atmospheric effects.
The 30 hPa atmospheric pressure level has changed height in phase with solar activity during the last 4 solar cycles.
UV irradiance increase causes higher ozone production, leading to stratospheric heating and to poleward displacements in the stratospheric and tropospheric wind systems.
A proxy study estimates that UV has increased by 3% since the Maunder"

Also touching upon the point made by theflashor

These three papers argue that the amount of incoming solar radiation reaching the surface of the earth has increased dramatically in the last two decades. While the values vary from paper to paper, in toto the new studies suggest that the increase in solar radiation absorbed at the earth’s surface had almost 10 times as much warming power during that time as the concurrent increases in carbon dioxide, the main global warming gas. Therefore, the warming observed over the past 20 years must have little to do with changes in greenhouse gases.

Thanks PMB for the fireball tracker...

Based on that post, we're on the same page.

This is a reasonable place to start, in your words:

"What did grab my attention while reading this thread was a report on Sky news telling me of the debris falling from the sky in Texas. The event in Texas was linked to a satellite collision in space..."

Whereas the link is questionable, it's an interesting theory to explore. This is utterly different thinking that starting with the 90% assertion that we are doomed and then suggesting that six disparate things are linked. In fact, my point is made. Let's explore and crunch data on the individual components and see what we come up with. That's why I enjoy this site. When I don't enjoy the site is when the "theories" are ravings. Seems like we're somewhat back on track. Thank you.

Fusion is not a runaway process. Once you start it up, it generates a lot of heat, which tends to expand the material violently (this is what we technically call a bomb). This means the fuel gets scattered, and it won't fuse. Making really big hydrogen bombs run into this problem, making it hard to make really big bombs, which in my book is perhaps a good thing.

So the process tends to damp itself off. Jupiter won't explode. It won't turn into a star, either. Stars work by maintaining fusion in their cores. Now, I just said fusion isn't self-sustaining, so how do stars keep it going? They do it by containing the hydrogen in a small volume. This is accomplished by piling a lot of mass on top of the hydrogen: the mass of the star.

The star has enough gravity that all that mass squeezes and heats the core enough for fusion to not only take place, but to continue at a relatively stable pace. But it turns out there is a lower limit to that mass; if you don't have enough, then you don't get the high temperatures and pressures necessary to ignite fusion. That mass is about 0.077 times the mass of the Sun, or 80 times Jupiter's mass. In other words, Jupiter is 1/80th the mass it needs to turn into a star. Some people call Jupiter a failed star, but in reality it ain't even close.

Conclusion: Jupiter won't explode, or turn into a star, because it lacks the containment to keep fusion going.

Obama to tour solar-power facility today, in Denver.

Maybe he wants to see what all the fuss is about... check out a few readings.

No worries Pantangele!

Birds have been dying and falling from the skies over NJ, pelicans are vanishing or turning up dazed and injured. Tie this altogether with the possibilty that some kind of shock wave from space has hit our magnetosphere, satellites colliding as if their orbits are altered, shuttles being postponed, supposed increases in military and Fema activy especially on the east coast, Obama leaving Washington to sign the stimulus package in Denver, a city alleged to be the future capital if the NAU becomes a reality,fireballs over Arizona,fears that other satellites might collide with debris and limit our abilty to track incoming objects from space, there isn't a conspiracy to keep the dots from connecting, then I'm going to have to chill with some good meds and a vacation!

I feel the same way, this is all one package wichI think is getting bigger.
I saw on ATS an Alex Jones talking to an Jordan Maxwell about an 'ancient entity' comming and the sing of 'the rising sun'. Do you have any thoughts on that subject ???
Is he just mumbling about the Money marked or is he talking about anything from 'outside'.? Slavery? Recreation of man?
I'm taking off here.

saw a fireball in Canada sometime between 8-9 p.m friday night. Thought nothing of it till now.

The texas sky event could well have been a rock from space, it happens all the time or a chunk from the satalite -when they crashed they scattered bits all over the place, some would have been hurled in totally random directions and then in the mass of bits they would have hit other objects and changed direction again thus its entirely possiible, and in fact likely. that some bits would enter our atmosphere in random places at random angles.

Ok, so while the most commonly spotted object in the sky is as we all know Venus (it's that alien space ship looking blob of light in the evening sky) people also jook at Jupiter quite a lot too, i think it's quite a distance at the moment so hard to see but plenty of telescopes are focused on it. Light does take a bit of time to reach us but it also happens to be the fastest moving thing in the universe that we know of, those pictures of the flare would have been sent to earth at light speed, so being as how we've had them for a while now and there is still only one sun in the sky then we can be quite, quite sure it isn't a sun, isn't on fire and throwing out mass amounts of light, telescope people are reporting it looks the same as ever, a reflection of the suns light.

Just to be sure lets check, i'm in northern hemisphere GMT (London) and i can see one sun, it's in the right place for the normal sun (setting) so i'm gonna say it's almost certainly the regular normal SOL. If someone from central america would be so kind as to confirm they can see only one sun and it's approx middday possition confirms it to be our real sun maybe a insomniac in OZ could confirm its night and there are no suns. Thus the debate could be finaly put to rest, we still only have one sun.

Nothing of importanace to add. I just saw how someone posted something about waiting 6 month to see the other side of the Sun. The Sun rotates once every 25 days. Just a FYI. I shall move along now.

The debate I feel is more:

Has there been an explosion in space?
Has this created meteors that are heading towards the Earth?
Has this created dangerous levels of solar activity?
Does solar activity effect the Earth?
Is solar activity the reason behind global warming?
Are Governments aware?
Are things likely to get worse?

2 reports of interest:

FAA spokesman Roland Herwig confirms that the calls did come in and confirms that a warning did go out to pilots yesterday to be alert to the possibility of satellite wreckage. But the critical bits of evidence — actual debris recovered on the ground — has not turned up.

A cloud of debris spreading through low Earth orbit following the collision of two satellites poses a new risk to many scientific missions and may signal the demise of the Hubble Space Telescope. NASA is monitoring the increased threat carefully, and if it is as bad as some fear, the agency may have to cancel the proposed shuttle-servicing mission slated for later this year. Without that mission, the telescope's days are numbered, even if none of the new debris comes anywhere close to it

Just a few things to say here. There are no giant pieces of the sun breaking off (I promise) , nor are the empty areas in the corona that unusual. however , what I hope is that if the sun decides to throw off some major flares in our direction and people start to post that here that it will not be ignored as some silly thread of impending doom. The earth can take a fairly large hit and be fine but two or more in quick succession could be a nightmare , and the warning we would have would be less than less than 2 days. T

If you actually go to the link I posted above you would see that there have been alot more Meteors? Fire balls as some call them over the past 6 weeks. Compared to over the past 5 years. If you look back I posted that in there as well its 2 to 3 times more this year then over the past 4 years. So I dont think its debri from the sats. Because most of the activity is from before the sats hit each other.

Hmmm well we have your word right? Everything is normal? Nothing to be concerned about?

Ulysses Reveals Global Solar Wind Plasma Output at 50-Year Low

September 23, 2008: Data from the Ulysses spacecraft, a joint NASA-European Space Agency mission, show the sun has reduced its output of solar wind to the lowest levels since accurate readings became available. The sun's current state could reduce the natural shielding that envelops our solar system.

"The sun's million mile-per-hour solar wind inflates a protective bubble, or heliosphere, around the solar system. It influences how things work here on Earth and even out at the boundary of our solar system where it meets the galaxy," said Dave McComas, Ulysses' solar wind instrument principal investigator and senior executive director at the Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio, Texas. "Ulysses data indicate the solar wind's global pressure is the lowest we have seen since the beginning of the space age."

The sun's solar wind plasma is a stream of charged particles ejected from the sun's upper atmosphere. The solar wind interacts with every planet in our solar system. It also defines the border between our solar system and interstellar space.

But as you say...

Nothing to worry about

Would you have any idea what he babbling on about? What entity is he talking about, the planet Nibiru will be on seen on supposed date May 15th and wipe out man on earth and the gods create new man? Is he a fraud?

It seems to me this is another example of a cyclic event that paces the cyclic political events ... I remember the most to solar energy back in the 1970's and again in the 1980's. Nothing has changed expect our abilities to watch it online as it happens.

Each time we finish up a war we end up in financial crisis to reexamine solar energy.
