Well it looks like the Sun is getting more active these days and cant help being reminded of a TWZ prediction that we may see a major CME soon.

Source

Sunspot 1087 which originally looked to be shrinking as it rotated into view on the eastern limb is now starting to grow at a rapid pace. This dark spots are now the size of atleast 2 planet earths. There is a chance for C-Class flares and perhaps a risk of an M-Class event. Any explosion within the next few days could trigger earth directed EME's as it rotates into direct view.

In the southern hemisphere, another small sunspot looks to be forming. More to follow should this region continue to grow.

While everyone is watching for effects of the eclipse today, I am keeping my eye on this. The effects of lower class flares will be in a couple days, but what if there is a big one?

If it produces a massive CME like the one in 1859 you can kiss the satelite sytem goodbye and possible blackouts.

How do you know 1087 is getting worse? Spaceweather site is currently reporting only B3 class solar flares.

Edit: Just saw this from your link:"sunspot 1087 - Sunspot 1087 which originally looked to be shrinking as it rotated into view on the eastern limb is now starting to grow at a rapid pace. This dark spots are now the size of atleast 2 planet earths. There is a chance for C-Class flares and perhaps a risk of an M-Class event.

Very interesting indeed!

Yes and it really is a shame we don't have pictures of the size of that sunspot!

I like spaceweather, but I found that the source listed above, updates more frequently and lists pretty much everything all on one site...

true, I just read this "Sunspot 1087 - Sunspot 1087 which originally looked to be shrinking as it rotated into view on the eastern limb is now starting to grow at a rapid pace. This dark spots are now the size of atleast 2 planet earths. There is a chance for C-Class flares and perhaps a risk of an M-Class event.

wowza

Any quakes that have occured previous have any relation to the sun spots in the past? Im sure ive read this somewhere but like i said before it aint my strong point.

While technically it hasn't been scientifically proven, I have noticed that we seem to see them after mid to strong CME's...

Just a thought.

i have a theory which hasnt be tested.... i have always wondered if strong solar winds pushing against the earth would have any effect on earthquakes instead of sunspots. I think Phage did some research on on sunspot activity and earthquakes and came up with nothing to support it.

Yes and I totally respect Phage, his posts are usually spot on. I know earthquakes happen all the time, and in the same vein solar wind happens all the time. So why not? We are looking for causes, but not aggravations. I just can't shake the feeling that the CME's send something on a lower spectrum that may aggravate these quakes and eruptions. But like you I am no scientist, I just pick up on patterns...

Thank you I just read and saw it, S&F too. So it would appear that possibly the predictions are a little late, but not by much...

does anyone have any further info on operation deep sleep - last hour radar anomalies - shooting pulses visible now passing over Florida?

Can someone please explain? Im a bit mince in this area

Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low to low. There is a chance for a C-class flare, and a slight chance for a M-class event, from Region 1087.


Should be a nifty fireworks display if we are hit =

An image of the sunspot is making it's way around... here's the latest

Not in my area of expertise. Are you asking about a HAARP type scenario going on? I would have to ask in kind, are there alot of special contrails over the area?

I am just hoping that a major CME does not aggravate an already bad situation, with the cap being off and all.

I copied and pasted while i was searching. I would be interested to hear a bit more as i aint a clue about it.
As for HAARP, well theres a whole other topic there in itself, but i can only assume that with HAARP included in the equation things would only be worse.

just a question,
does the solar activity and 'hot spots' have something to do with the current heat waves in Europe and US?
Or are those two unrelated?

(uh, so damn hot over here... I hate this weather!)

The heat wave is all northern hemisphere i believe?
As for the relation between them i personally dont know. Im sure that someone on here will answer your question though.

A very good question, but its been hotter that normal here in Chicago for the last month, I believe it has more to do with La Nina this year, look for stronger than normal storms in the northern hemisphere, as well as the possibilty of a bad winter...
