Has this plate just recently become active? You've peaked my interest. Could it also be related to the oil volcano, or a different quake that possibly weakened it? Do you live nearby?

I'm just an observer - I watch quakes and weather and I'm afraid I'm not terribly scientific - I watch for patterns and things just click in my head sometimes. Takes me on all sorts of tangents but sometimes things like the Puerto Rico bell keep coming back time and time again.

No, it's not unusual for Puerto Rico to have activity but I've seen a pattern of pairs or "ding dong" as I call it when one of the larger plates is either going to or has had a large quake. I should really do some analysis, it's probably all in my head, but perhaps just my mentioning Puerto Rico might trigger another tangent


No, I don't live near Puerto Rico - I live in the rather active quake zone that is New Zealand

To be safe from an earthquake. Just predict one and it will definitely not happen!

To make doubly sure, put money on it


I don't usually like to say when I have a gut feeling or pattern but I just feel really strongly about this one. This will probably teach me to keep schtum in future. lol

Thanks, I am hunting up more info on your Bell, as I have not heard of it. I live in the Central US, outside Chicago. I am near the New Madrid fault, and wonder if they might connect somehow...

Thanks again.

I doubt anyone else refers to it as a bell, that's just my terminology. You'll find a lot of information if you search for the Caribbean Plate, P/Rico Trench and locked plate tectonics

The Caribbean Plate touches on many of the others so could have an effect I guess..

Little update




I believe that is the second sunspot, 1088?

1088 is in the southern hemisphere under 1087. Great pic thanks...Had to log back in to say it. See you all tonight have a great day!

Thanks for the image posts - I see it has turned our way quiet a bit now. And is that another smaller one down below on the left?

Sunspot 1087 - Sunspot 1087 which originally looked to be shrinking as it rotated into view on the eastern limb is now starting to grow somewhat. 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 CME'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.

What do you all make of this?

I look at that activity like a pitcher winding up for a fastball. Let's hope this one is out of the strikezone.

peace

Thanks everyone especially the OP for the info and discussion.

My thoughts are along the line of if the GPS sats are in danger of getting knocked out, I sure as heck would not want to be flying in a commercial airliner.

You are more than welcome...No new flares as of yet, still B class.

And Phage had a thread up trying to shoot down any relation between sun spots and quakes. I guess nobody is buying into it, but you can read the thread here...

Solar Activity and Earthquakes

I always welcome opposing views in my threads, and I have the utmost respect for Phage, he presents his case well as always.

I think that just maybe we may see a good sized solar flare just like on the 9th...

MAGNIFICENT ACTIVE REGION: Sunspot 1087 has a magnetic canopy that can only be described as magnificent.


The 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.

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


NOAA - there is a great image at the site - sorry I don't know how to embed an image. I keep asking but never seem to get a reply.

Ive sent you a u2u about pictures, although im probably not the best to try and explain it to you as mine dont come out right half the time.

WARNING!

"Sunspot 1087 - B and C-Class flares have taken place in the past 24 hours around Sunspot 1087. This region is starting to lose sunspot size, but remains a massive magnetic pool on the face of the sun. There will remain the chance for C-Class flares."

The current proton density has increased about 40% to 9.7protons/cm3 (spaceweather.com)

and

Solar X rays are currently active! (solarcycle24.com)

WoW!
Death is said to be an orgasmic event. This would be the mother load! What a beautiful sight. Thanks for the pix. New background incoming.
