I check that site most days, and I've never seen as many.
RSOE does glitch out every now and again and will show many more events than usual. I recall once it showed earthquakes all over the world because
the threshold was too low (mag < 1 or something). Anyway, if you click those airplane incidents and check the details, you will find the details are
As for the sunspot and crop circle, I have said this in another thread but it bears repeating:
1. The crop circle is only interpreted to indicate something to do with the magnetosphere and 7/7 due to:
A. The circle resembles the magnetosphere during NORMAL reaction to solar wind / CME particles
B. Symbols seem to indicate a lunar eclipse which occurs on 7/7
C. There are 7 objects in the circles so the number 7 is a theme which people again interpret to mean 7/7
2. There was indeed the first notable sunspot for solar cycle 24 this past weekend and the radiation from it is indeed hitting Earth now.
3. There were NO CMEs of magnitude worth worrying about and NO evidence anything is out of the ordinary with the magnetosphere
4. The day is not done, but the sunspot which appeared over the weekend is weakening.
Now, with all that said, I do find it interesting that a crop circle was interpreted to indicate something to do with sunspot activity on 7/7. This
is because the first noteworthy sunspot of the new solar cycle after the deepest solar minimum in over a century appeared this past weekend and it's
particles are hitting Earth on 7/7.
Up until now I have been enormously skeptical about crop circles but now I will be paying a little more attention to them. IF whatever created the
crop circle did indeed know about this new sunspot, maybe it is either a warning about the new solar cycle and there will be more crop circles
indicating warnings for future sunspots which may actually cause problems?
Or again, it could be coincidence. Time will tell. All I know is that people thought there would be something relating to solar activity on 7/7 and
there is. That is interesting.
