STRONG SOLAR FLARE


www.spaceweather.com

At 1825 UT on August 7th, magnetic fields around sunspot 1093 erupted, producing a strong M1-class solar flare. Several amateur astronomers caught the active region in mid-eruption. The blast hurled a CME into space. The cloud is not heading directly toward Earth, but it might deliver a glancing blow to our planet's magnetic field two or three days hence. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras.

The Sun is awaking ! Activitity is increasing ! And it's looking if it hasn't "got out of the right side of the bed" Increased Solar geomagnetic activity forces on our planet are also increasing. Would it be an assumption this will result in increased seismic activity within our planet. We should expect some exciting years ahead... Stay tuned...

yes it would be an assumption.

its not directed at us and it isn't a big flare. Maybe next time.

Thank you ! yes not this time... Well just a slight affect / graze... But yes all should be aware of the posing threat of one actually hitting the bullseye (Earth) Humans live a fragile existance on the crust of this beautiful rock in space...

Oh come on - its an M - might mess up a satellite or 2
No?

Gotta love the all caps sensationalist headline.

I wish for this activity in the winter. They keep saying high latitude viewers to watch for auroras, yet they forget it's too light at night up here. I'm not even very high up, 53rd parallel, but at 2 or 3 in the morning when you would expect darkness, it's really quite light out.

Its very simular to someone pointing a revolver to "your" head one of the chambers has a bullet in it. Sooner or later someone gets hurt... The Sun will fire that shot possibly this Solar season over the next few years. EMF blackout is serious and will change our electronic dependent society...

The cloud is not heading directly toward Earth


How exactly does this warrant Breaking News status ?

No conspiracy, no imment danger, no nothing just a possibility of a glancing blow on the Earth

And someone already posted it in the appropriate section

Considering how close this comes on the heels of the last one and the increase from C to M class, this is disturbing news.

My apologies and my apologies to ATS Im new to this and still getting thu it. It was and is an important issue. And no intent was made to do the wrong thing...

I do not want to high jack this thread but what if or should I say when the day comes that the Earth gets hit so hard that everything more sophisticated than a flashlight gets zapped. No phones, no power, no cars, no nothing. It would be like electricity was uninvented. How would things go? How long would it that to get things back up and running? Now remember you first have to make the tools needed to make the tools needed to make the parts needed. It would reset everything back 200 years.

Who's to say it would?
There's a good chance it could be the disaster that totally destroys civilization as we know it.
Just like at what happened after katrina, a mad max scenario is completely possible.

Geomagnetic storms affect long electrical conductors; powerlines, telephone lines, pipelines. Cars and personal electronics are not affected. Of course, if the power goes out you won't be able to pump gas or charge your iPod.

No doubt a severe storm would be trouble. This will not be one.

I had always thought that if the car was running there would be danger of frying the CPU. Cool to know it shouldn't.

I for one very much appreciate the news submission. The sun is coming out the deepest slumber we've ever witnessed and now we have two CME's within a weeks time. The first a C or minor eruption aimed directly at earth and now a week later an M or medium sized eruption thankfully not point directly at us.

At this rate an escalation to X or major class with a direct hit over the next few years seems very plausible. If we got one as big or bigger then the one that hit in the 1850's then we may very well be back to 1850, only without the tools of the age.

A good idea is to have an old and simple car or motorcycle, get spares for all the electrical parts essential to running the engine and keep them in a make shift faraday cage - this is dead simple to do, something ideal would be maybe a metal ammo box from the army surplus store, in the trunk of your car bolt it down or run an earth strap from the box to the frame of the vehicle... You could also do the same in your house, you just have to earth the metal container out some how - anything electrical inside should survive just fine.

this is number 2? what is the old and true saying "3rd time is the charm" S&F BTW, all ways like to know of this type event.

I just found this on line. The power companies take the topic of GMS very serious. It is only a mater of time before we are hit big time.
