Latest on the sunspot...it seems to be coughing up b and c class flares...they aren't directed towards earth tho..but that is supposed to change in a few days when it turns to face the earth


Magnetic fields overlying sunspot 1087 became unstable and erupted yesterday. The explosion emitted a bright flash of UV light (a C3-class solar flare) and hurled a massive plume of hot plasma away from the sun.

video ^^

NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) recorded the 1.5-hour time-lapse movie beginning at 1950 UT on July 9th. SDO has been busy since sunspot 1087 appeared yesterday, recording B- and C-class flares every few hours. So far none of the eruptions has been Earth-directed, but this could change in the days ahead as the active region turns to face our planet

I've been reading about this sunspot and possible CME's directed at Earth on other threads. Should be an interesting day.

PS

It's 2:34AM Saturday morning Ann Abor time, and still no aliens.

I have had my eye on this one, massive and active, and about to turn towards the earth, I expect to hear about this one on the news!

Does the sun itself rotate?
Or do the spots move/travel?
I always wonderd about that.

Are they still wittnessing the magnetoshere rip and will that have a bearing of the full impact during such a time as the earth's magnetospheres weakening?

Helloo there! heres something interesting for you all to look at, its the sun's latest solar activity!


www.space.com...

It definitely shows a couple of big flares from the last few days!

One Love! x

Thank you for the wiki link. I would like to understand more about that.
I wasnt sure if the sun rotated or the surface of the sun rotated.

As far as the other link: Julee Cruise - The World Spins
Didnt quite understand (had my volume down).

Seems as if it was quite a show for the solar astronomers and the SOHO v

Sunspot 1087 has a magnetic canopy that can only be described as magnificent. It's on full display in today's extreme ultraviolet image from the Solar Dynamics Observatory





Get the full analogy and story here:

UPDATE

Chance of M-flares during the next 24 hours



This active region could swallow our planet ten times over and still have room to spare. Fortunately, we're 93 million miles away. We could still feel the effects of an eruption, however. The thicket of magnetic loops and filaments harbors energy for M-class solar flares. M-flares can heat and puff up Earth's upper atmosphere, causing satellites to experience extra drag as they orbit our planet; they can also cause waves of ionization to ripple around the planet, disrupting radio communications. There haven't been any big eruptions yet, but the magnificent magnetic field of sunspot 1087 has been restless, as shown in this time-lapse movie spanning four days.

www.spaceweather.com...



NOAA forecasters estimate a 10% chance of M-flares during the next 24 hours. Readers with solar telescopes are encouraged to monitor developments.

Two hours ago the proton density of the solar wind jumped to 9.8 for a while. Plus solarcycle24.com reported active Xrays.

right now the proton density is 10.5 in spaceweather..

Dang! I just checked it and its hiked to 11.5. This is double the normal level. Still within an acceptable range but wow there sure is activity right now. If that jumps to 20 or more we are in trouble.

What happens at 20 protons?

Update:

GEOMAGNETIC STORM: A minor geomagnetic storm is underway as Earth enters a solar wind stream. Sky watchers around Antarctica should be alert for auroras. Arctic auroras will be overwhelmed by the summer midnight sun.
