This is getting a little worse at the moment. You will have to wait and see how this pans out.
NEW SUNSPOT: A new sunspot is emerging over the sun's southeastern limb, and it could be a big one.

Good find. The picture of the spot looks like it really could be big. Anyone notice the recent quake activity seemed to correspond with spot 1087? I hope that this one starts shrinking already.

Exactly. All the quakes and storms apparently not related to the last one? So if this could be a really big one well i dare say we may see a whole lot worse.

From your source:




Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity

SDF Number 199 Issued at 2200Z on 18 Jul 2010

Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 17/2100Z to 18/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. Region 1087 (N24W48) has a simple alpha magnetic classification. A further analysis of the SOHO/LASCO imagery from yesterday show a CME was observed on C3 imagery which can be correlated with the C2 x-ray flare at 17/1801Z. This event does not seem to be Earth directed.

Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low with a slight chance for a C-class flare from Region 1087.

Geophysical Activity Summary 17/2100Z to 18/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was quiet.

Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet levels for the next three days (19-21 July).


Why do you think it will be a big one? Doesnt it say "This event does not seem to be Earth directed"?

Here is the view of the sunspot(s) from STEREO B.


For comparison, here's 1087 when it started to come to our side of the Sun.

I think the SHTF situation may just be getting worse?
Considering the last one died out and was smaller than this one and yet here we have a few quakes of a modest magnitude. So what would a bigger one do?

Why?
It's an average sized sunspot. Showing no unusual or particularly intense activity.

spaceweather.com states the following?
NEW SUNSPOT: A new sunspot is emerging over the sun's southeastern limb, and it could be a big one. Click here and here for first-look images.

spaceweather.com is a good resource but they sometimes get it wrong. The STEREO B image shows the whole sunspot, why say "It might be a big one"? We can see the whole thing.

The idea that ic ould be a big one, comes directly from www.spacewweather.com

They are the ones saying it will big. Top headline on their own page.

And? The data is there so we can form our own opinions, it is clearly an average sized sunspot and doesn't show any abnormal activity. It doesn't matter what spaceweather says does it? When we can see for ourselves LOL!
Sorry if the lack of impending doom disappoints :s

Really?

You think I am looking for doom and gloom? Go have a bad day on someone else.

I posted that the article said it was big, and that it was a cool picture. I did also mention an increase in EQ activity seemed to happen with the passing of the last sun spot. I can't be curious about the relation of the two without it being doom and gloom? If we could correlate more of the scientific data between the two, wouldn't that help?

Why can't someone report what they see without it being doom and gloom? Relax

In my eyes a sunspot has to be fairly huge to pose a threat. This looks like any old sunspot and when you flick through the archives theres been many bigger that have faced earth. As with the earthquakes im not to keen on the whole "big spot= big quakes" theory. also a solor flare has to be of magnitude X and above to pose any major threat.

Or are you lot seeing in from the " if the suns this active now what will happon in the future" perspective?

safe.

No its not. It's currently just another sunspot, we have had them before and will have them in the future. Sure we will probably get a huge flare some day that will cause a major issue but it's nothing to freak out about currently.

here we go again, assuming people know as much as themselves. Did it not occur to you that some including myself find certain things a bit boggling?
If spaceweather says it could be a big one i`ll take that for now until it dies out.

Here's an example of what the data regarding sunspots and earthquakes shows.
