Is this good or bad? Or is it just a normal occasional thing that happens? Just curious because it looks interesting.

From what i've read on this recently, the magnetosphere has a big hole in it, and allows fierce solar winds in. I remember reading one opinion that the lack of solar flares is what is stopping this hole from closing. Scientists believe the solar flares or sunspots, which we have not had for many months, recharge the magnetospere. Now, I am completely unscientific, but if the earth is having outer protection issues, it would explain a few things we know about, lke meteors that have been seen lately in Canada and Texas, and probably would explain the reason, there are worries at the ISS and the space shuttle not taking off the other day.
BTW, I am new here, well been loitering many years, but just signed up.

Here is what its supposed to look like when it's going to flip. Not there yet.

NASA's model for reversal.

No need to be worried yet, but I'll definitely keep my eye on it. Thanks for the good find.

Someone already posted a link saying that there was a coronal hole that would be hitting us by tomorrow. It's not just sun spots that affect the magnetosphere.

A coronal hole releases solar winds which also affect the magnetosphere.

Earth has a magnetic field, too. It forms a bubble around our planet called the magnetosphere, which deflects solar wind gusts. (Mars, which does not have a protective magnetosphere, has lost much of its atmosphere as a result of solar wind erosion.) Earth's magnetic field and the IMF come into contact at the magnetopause: a place where the magnetosphere meets the solar wind. Earth's magnetic field points north at the magnetopause. If the IMF points south -- a condition scientists call "southward Bz" -- then the IMF can partially cancel Earth's magnetic field at the point of contact.

The solar wind is not uniform. Although it is always directed away from the Sun, it changes speed and carries with it magnetic clouds, interacting regions where high speed wind catches up with slow speed wind, and composition variations. The solar wind speed is high (800 km/s) over coronal holes and low (300 km/s) over streamers. These high and low speed streams interact with each other and alternately pass by the Earth as the Sun rotates. These wind speed variations buffet the Earth's magnetic field and can produce storms in the Earth's magnetosphere

Yeah it definitely doesn't look that messed up right now. Thanks for posting that.

My question is, what does the red and blue represent? are they the poles?
I can see where they are going, and how they are shifting.
Also the convection map is fairly easy to follow.
Just unsure of how to read it.

Did you miss the post on the first page by operation mindcrime

The site he links to says:

Extreme UV telescopes onboard the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) are monitoring a dark hole in the sun's atmosphere

Coronal holes are vast regions where the sun's magnetic field opens up and allows the solar wind to escape. A stream of solar wind flowing from this hole is heading for Earth now. Arctic sky watchers should be alert for Northern Lights when it arrives late on March 12th or March 13th.

So it's a day early, I guess it's hard to predict how fast it's going to travel, but close enough don't you think?

Actually --- sorry....... but that is not fact.

The links provided do not show anything impacting our field when the field went down..........

Please look at everything provided in links and information - before implying anything other than what is fact and has been occuring.

Please research yourself, and come back and show us, if there has been any event like this in the Earth's history.

I have been researching it all morning, and I have yet found anything, that shows this type of event with our magnetic field.

I have also provided in a link above a "real time" gamma bursts that we are receiving right now.................... guess what.............. you can go back in history right there on the page and look a few years back............... guess what?? you will find we are receiving right now... more than we have before.

I will insert them in my next post, since they won't fit here.

Does it say somewhere that this has caused our magnet field to fold up before - when this has happened previously?

ohh come on there Questionall, even you know that showing a picture of the sun today has nothing to do with something effecting the earth right takes some time for a solar flare to reach instead of showing a current sun activity picture, show one of march 10th this you'll find your answer...

Yeah, that huge coronal hole releasing all those high speed solar winds certainly wouldn't be affecting our magnetic field, despite the fact that they have in the past.

Okay, I did as you suggested................

here ya go............... from link:

now here is a graph of solar flares since March 10th............

Jeez................. am I missing anything?????? Please show me, where there has been a "major" flare............ that would cause our magnetic field to do what it has done today..........

I will look forward to you pointing out that "Huge" flare..... on this chart I provided.

could this be the cause of the massive sand storm in the middle east? i think it happened a couple days ago, i have seen pics on yahoo hugh storm

posted on Mar, 12 2009 @ 01:23 PM
I forget the exact words, but ill try here....
It makes no difference, or will do no good to point fingers and asess blame.
All that is important is to find the cause, and avert the failure the next time.
What im saying is... why argue about whos right, what time it happened.
How about going to the root and finding out WHAT happened, and WHAT is the consequence?
Evey person on this thread is intelligent in my opinion.
Why bicker?
Why argue?
Wouldnt we get further in an analasys if we werent fighting?

Here is a solar wind chart from link:

reply to post by questioningall

Magnetospheric behavior is strongly influenced by the solar wind, the supersonic stream of charged particles flowing out from the Sun. The most familiar manifestation of the magnetosphere's interaction with the solar wind is the aurora -- the Northern and Southern Lights. These colorful displays result from the impact of magnetospheric charged particles with the gases of the Earth's upper atmosphere. Especially spectacular auroras are associated with "space storms," magnetospheric disturbances in the solar wind. In addition to triggering intense auroral activity, geomagnetic storms can damage spacecraft, disrupt communications, and lead to power blackouts. It is thus important to understand such storms and be able to predict them.

Like all solar storms, the September storm distorted the shape of the magnetic field that surrounds the Earth. Without buffeting from the solar wind (charged particles like protons and electrons that are ejected from the Sun), the Earth’s magnetic field would look something like a plump doughnut, with the North and South poles forming the slender hole in the center. In reality, the nearly constant solar winds flatten the space side of the “doughnut” into a long tail. The amount of distortion changes when solar storms, such as the flare on September 7, send stronger winds towards the Earth. Changes to the magnetic field release fast-moving particles, which flow with charged particles from the Sun towards the center of the “doughnut” at the Earth’s poles. As the particles sink into the atmosphere, they collide with oxygen and nitrogen, lighting the sky with Nature’s version of neon lights, the aurora.

Thanks for the link Divinorumus....notice the lage coronal hole in the upper middle picture??

Of course there is the off change of this magnetosphere disturbance is caused by the magnetic field of planet X getting to close..

Get ready for some serious doom and gloom people!!!
