Good find. It does look like the filament may have collapsed and produced a Hyder flare. Note the bright stripe where the filament used to be.
Before:

After:


There was also a slight x-ray flare in the same time frame.


And a CME appears in both STEREO A and STEREO B. Unfortunately, the COR2 and COR3 SOHO images aren't available or we would probably see a nice halo.


Looks like a good chance for a nice display of the northern lights in a few days. Judging from the low intensity of the flare and the CME, I wouldn't expect much more than that.

Fresh doom.

Though nothing mentioned on any of the space websites. NOAA, spaceweather, rsoe. I wonder if they would tell us if it's going to hit us.

Is there any other countries that might tell us that this will affect us. Like ETA and what side of the earth might it hit. Because it looks like we're going to get some of that CME.

(based on location of the cme and the the location of the stereo sat Ahead)

Once again Phage said they were harmless so i asked do you have a source besides the vid?????


Why should you put your faith so highly in one ATS member? Where's your source other than Phage? I didn't see him say anything about that.

Think for yourself, don't let other users do the thinking for you.

Gall dang! My solar doom thread was not shot down by Phage, but in fact, given more credibility!

YAY!

The three things to look for (when to panic concerning solar kill shots)

1) The space shuttle is forced to return to earth because of a meteorite shower.

2) Ed dames says I told you so.

3) phage says OK, this is not good.

Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 143 Issued at 2200Z on 23 May 2010

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 22/2100Z
to 23/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. The STEREO COR2 imagery
observed a CME around 23/1809Z. This CME was correlated with GOES
x-ray images originating from an area along a filament channel
located between N24W05 to N01W23. Associated with the CME was a
long duration B1 x-ray flare at 23/1801Z. Region 1072 (S15W09)
continues to grow in white light areal coverage and sunspot count
and has produced two low-level B-class flares during the period.
The region maintained a beta magnetic configuration.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
low. There is a chance for a C-class flare, and a slight chance for
a M-class event, from Region 1072.

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 22/2100Z to 23/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet. The solar wind speed continued to
average around 370 km/s through the period.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be at quiet levels for the next three days (24-26 May).

The Classification of X-ray Solar Flares
or "Solar Flare Alphabet Soup"

A solar flare is an explosion on the Sun that happens when energy stored in twisted magnetic fields (usually above sunspots) is suddenly released. Flares produce a burst of radiation across the electromagnetic spectrum, from radio waves to x-rays and gamma-rays. [more information]

Scientists classify solar flares according to their x-ray brightness in the wavelength range 1 to 8 Angstroms. There are 3 categories: X-class flares are big; they are major events that can trigger planet-wide radio blackouts and long-lasting radiation storms. M-class flares are medium-sized; they can cause brief radio blackouts that affect Earth's polar regions. Minor radiation storms sometimes follow an M-class flare. Compared to X- and M-class events, C-class flares are small with few noticeable consequences here on Earth.

yeah that is a niice one!

If there are any auroras up at the Observatory ( there often is [ok not very often, but sometimes] when Sol gets goin)

I will get pics if they do indeed make an appearance.

We have been waiting!
and it has been a good handful of years since we've seen any.

Phage said northern lights.

This means:
\



A) A CME erupted from Sun.

B) It was aimed at Earth.

C) It was powerful enough to have an effect.

D) Since Phage is not an alarmist doomtard like me, it could be that Northern lights is all we get. Based on my ability to blow things out of proportion, I am going to state the following:

a) This is part of a cycle, and we will see many, many more earth aimed CME's as our fragile electronic infrastructure is targeted by the evil terror star.
b) The doom is in fact going to be here soon.
c) Get your butts down to wal-mart and stock up on canned goods, bottled water, shotgun shells, and machete's.

Why, is there a party at your house?


Although I admire your excellent doom-mongering skills, I think we will all be fine. Spaceweather.com doesn't seem too concerned, and I do tend to trust their opinion.

If it was directed towards us when and where would we expect to see the effects?

Just had my thread closed due to the usual bs. Mine was regarding what looks like a massive mothership. If it was a flare then why the hell does the shape stay constant, you can see the front then as its passing the undercarriage then at the rear something else yet..................no one can clearly see it at all.

Jazz, I can actually see what you mean re the shape, it is weird that it stays uniform as opposed to a billowing flare.

I have no clue what it is but at least you are not alone in wondering what it is and why it's like that.

Well it's on spaceweather.

They were a day late and a dollar short.

So, ATS and my user generated content were far more on the ball than possibly all space news sites.

Score for us.

Almost: the one reported on spaceweather refers to the CME ejected on 24th while yours was on the 23rd. Compare the two:

23/05/2010 spotted by downtown436
stereo-ssc.nascom.nasa.gov...

24/05/2010 reported by spaceweather
stereo.gsfc.nasa.gov...

Which do you think was bigger? Personally I think the 23rd looks much more impressive. It might be best to revise the arrival date given by spaceweather a day early making it, what, the 26th?

But why does it look like its heading towards the sun? Seriously this is mercury? and nothing more?
