Should I be worried,

www.telegraph.co.uk...


"It looks like the first eruption was so large that it changed the magnetic fields throughout half the Sun's visible atmosphere and provided the right conditions for the second eruption.


So all you experts out there, what is going to happen just problems with satellites and communication grids?

Well, I know that I will be looking to see if I can see the northern lights in Minnesota...

Also, I am happy to say that I got to post this before someone blamed Bush.

Those lights ought to be spectacular, let me know or film it maybe.

Didn't they get the MEMO?
2012! Not 2013 Sheesh!

The Daily Telegraph disclosed in June that senior space agency scientists believed the Earth will be hit with unprecedented levels of magnetic energy from solar flares after the Sun wakes “from a deep slumber” sometime around 2013.

The article said tomorrow "Tuesday" for this recent one and expect a "BIG" one possibly by 2013

Let's see here,


Experts said the wave of supercharged gas will likely reach the Earth on Tuesday, when it will buffet the natural magnetic shield protecting Earth.


That's this Tuesday, this year, yes?

That would be tomorrow?

According to www.solarcycle24.com it should be making its debut tomorrow, but as a CME and not a solar flare. C class flares are pretty normal for the sun, but M and X class are the big hitters. I saw some images of the Halo flare on the northern hemisphere of the sun. It had to arc 400,000 miles or higher. It was spectacular.
The CME will be a punch of geomagnetic energy which in most circumstances, just flow around earth as it has a massive protective atmospheric layer. What stymies me is how it will affect us since there was a big upper atmospheric collapse a couple weeks ago. If anything, it will trigger some astonishing auroral events, and probably play hell on cel phones and satellite comms.

No you shouldn't be worried and its a typical newspaper the 'telegraph' well known by their editoral staff making headlines by passing lies to the public through mass fear-mongering tactics.

Nothing to worry about that would affect us all, they are only trying to create fear by getting us to create fear from our own thoughts so that they can feed from our fear and makes them feel more over-powering.

Nice! Thanks for that. Where would I find what locations may be best for viewing? I'm probably too far South, but worth asking..

I see, could it be as bad as that one in Canada a while back?

Good question. That's a bit harder to define. It depends on a page full of math (ejection trajectory, CME mass, velocity, which side of earth will be facing the sun at that time, atmospheric resistance, etc). It could be anywhere really. If it impacts the equatorial line, then it could cover most of the exposed face for an undetermined amount of time. More than likely it will have effects on the Northern lights, but isn't confined to the poles. There are a dozen electromagnetic vortices that circulate through Earth so I can't really say where it will be best. All I can say is watch the skies at night. Should be a pretty amazing lightshow


I don't know this a rock solid fact, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express :LOL:

Does anyone know how this might affect solar panels?
Will it damage them, or will it charge faster in less time?

Would it start tonight or tomorrow night, and how long does this last?
