Just thought i would pass through and leave an update.

FARSIDE ACTIVITY CONTINUES: For the second day in a row, NASA's STEREO-A spacecraft has detected a strong solar flare on the far side of the sun

A rash of small sunspots is breaking out across the sun's northern hemisphere.

Thank you for that update boo1981!!!

I had the worst luck having to go out of town the last two days. As an avid Hurricane tracker, and Sun watcher, this was the first time that I had withdrawl symptoms from ATS.

Anyway, the sun continues to be active with more sunspots appearing in that same cluster. Please pardon this complete lack of solar lingo, but that cluster looks like solar acne breaking out. Sunspots 1101 through 1105 are not doing much however.

Also, there was a CME on the far side of the sun on September 1, that will not impact us at all.

Have a great day!

1101, 1103, and 1105 are still hanging around. 1105 was active yesterday with a B2-class solar flare. Also, a solar wind stream should be hitting us either on the 5th or 6th. has a link right now to the small B2-class flare yesterday.

Here is the update from September 4th:

Updated 2010 Sep 04 2201 UTC

Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 247 Issued at 2200Z on 04 Sep 2010

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 03/2100Z
to 04/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. Regions 1105 (N18W36) and
1101 (N12W70) produced several B-class x-ray events during the
period. The largest event, an impulsive B6 flare, occurred at
04/07Z. A filament was observed on SDO AIA 193 lifting from the
north west quadrant at 04/1430Z. A limb event CME was visible in
SOHO LASCO C3 shortly after with an estimated speed of 368 km/s. The
same event was visible on the STEREO-A coronagraph and produced a
partial halo in the southeast quadrant.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is forecast to be low
with C-class flares likely for the next 3 days (5-7 September).

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 03/2100Z to 04/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
forecast to be quiet to unsettled with the chance for active
conditions for the next 3 days (5-7 September) due to recurrent
coronal hole effects.

Just wait until on or around 911 and then checkout the suns activity.
Should be interesting to say the least. That's when the active region will be earth facing.
Also popes visit 16th-19th sept. Popes uk visit.

Hmm...sounds like it might be an interesting time to be watching the Sun. I am curious as to the signifigance of connecting the sun with the Pope's visit to the UK as they obviously do not affect each other at all. I live in the US, and I have just not heard much about his trip.

Solar activity on 9/11, and Pope goes to the UK the week after? I don't get it.

Here's a heads up people
Solar eruption. Looks like erm well you decide because judging by threads on here also some of my own we already knew what's on the cards.

A C1 flare is not significant. There was no significant ejection of material and any that was, was not directed toward Earth.

We will see no effects.

At what point did I say it was earth directed?
Since you are already here and the others will surely be popping in soon do drive the truth home to all of us dumb asses I would like to take this opportunity to tell you that your facts that you always seem to find will all mean nothing. I've passed caring about the scientific bs that we've all been fed for centuries I'm seeing everything from a more human side using what I feel to be right not what we've been led to believe. There's one thing I've noticed on here, nothing gets serious consideration or input on here regarding how events are all related topics, also niburu, 2012, solar activity, geological disasters, ET's and religion. Everything is tied in yet the OP can't help you connect the dots showing how they connect because of off topic posts or because of those who derail threads ultimately leading to where the people that were interested in the topic, can't be arsed with trawling through pages of disinfo and thread trashing. Or afraid to post because some feel its great to belittle others with their “facts”. What I'm saying is try backing off a bit lay all the cards on the table for and against and take it from there.
That's a reasonable ask isn't it.
I enjoy ATS and I find that its a wealth of knowledge I like it that way. Not where someone posts something that's in regards to the above topics (ufo's etc) then immediately after there's loads of replies talking nonesense that half don't even relate to the thread?

So in a nutshell I'm (at the moment) open to what everyone really thinks and feels what's going on.
I think everything is beyond coincidence now.

Sorry for any offence caused none meant. Just letting you know. That I'm bored of it now.

Solar activity 911 bs? Guess we'll see.

You didn't really say much of anything. I filled in some details.

Given what the suns capable of and what spaceweather had regarding 911 and how the active region facing earth on around that date. Given the anticipated activity and what has been said then I think odd are def on one side.

Looks like you guys are having fun going back and forth. I have been so caught up with getting my four kids back to school this week and also with work that I have not been on here as much as I would like. My apologies.

The point of this thread is study the sun, note any ongoing trends and events, and have some cool debate.

I am glad you guys are debating well, since there is just not too much going on with the sun right now.

Personally, I do not believe that the sun is going to nail us next week, nor in 2012.

While I have read and seen a number of 'theories' on catastrophic solar activity, nothing makes as much sense to me as actual scientific data. According to NASA, a super powerful CME or X Flare can happen any time, with some 'times' having a greater chance than others. However, this solar maximum is not one of them. They say it is going to be weaker than normal.

With that in mind, to me, prophecy regarding the sun zapping us like laser tag, is pointless. Completely pointless.

The reason for this is that I do believe that I am prepared as possible. If the sun erupts in a major, major, major way, paradigm shift. Ok, no techonology and possibly a societal breakdown. My family already owns 80 private acres with my own water source in an isolated area that is ideal for growing. I worked my tail off for years now, and I am an airborne army vet who loves guns and has lots.

The chance of the sun fragging us is remote, but always there. Education and knowledge is what can help. An example from the earlier posts is the discussion covering solar flares. Yes, spot 1105 is crackling with energy right now, but none of it is strong. Here is a lesson on flares from

The Classification of X-ray Solar Flares
or "Solar Flare Alphabet Soup"

A solar flare is an explosion on the Sun that happens when energy stored in twisted magnetic fields (usually above sunspots) is suddenly released. Flares produce a burst of radiation across the electromagnetic spectrum, from radio waves to x-rays and gamma-rays. [more information]

Scientists classify solar flares according to their x-ray brightness in the wavelength range 1 to 8 Angstroms. There are 3 categories: X-class flares are big; they are major events that can trigger planet-wide radio blackouts and long-lasting radiation storms. M-class flares are medium-sized; they can cause brief radio blackouts that affect Earth's polar regions. Minor radiation storms sometimes follow an M-class flare. Compared to X- and M-class events, C-class flares are small with few noticeable consequences here on Earth.

Each category for x-ray flares has nine subdivisions ranging from, e.g., C1 to C9, M1 to M9, and X1 to X9. In this figure, the three indicated flares registered (from left to right) X2, M5, and X6. The X6 flare triggered a radiation storm around Earth nicknamed the Bastille Day event.

With that in mind, I look forward to everyone contributing on this post regardless of if you believe in Solar doom or not. I just wanted to give my .0001 cents on the topic, and share some additional information about flares.

However, I do love hearing about any prophecy, and I think that a lot of us on ATS do as well. And I am also looking forward to watching the sun as it becomes more active, which I do hope that happens soon, next week or whenever.

I really appreciate both the scientific, and non-scientific viewpoints.

To conclude, I simply believe that sun is absolutely amazing to study. I also believe that it is better to study the sun itself and be aware of what it is doing in order to be prepared for anything, than to trust in any type of prophecy. For a number of reasons, I do believe that a major paradigm shift might be coming soon, I just do not think it is coming from the sun.

But the sun sure is fun to watch, for whatever your reason!

Looks like some new activity on our Sun that 'might' be headed our way:

NEW ERUPTION: During the waning hours of Sept. 10th, a magnetic filament in the sun's northern hemisphere erupted: SDO movie. Unlike other recent eruptions on the sun, this one might affect Earth. Beacon data from NASA's twin STEREO spacecraft show a bright coronal mass ejection (CME) racing away from the blast site. The cloud could hit our planet's magnetic field in about two days. Stay tuned for more information and improved forecasts.

and also:

Old sunspot 1100 is returning after a two-week transit around the far side of the sun. It will probably be re-numbered "1106" by NOAA later today. Credit: SDO/HMI

Have a great day!!

I have a feeling that this week will be interesting.
Active region starting to return toward earth.

posted on Sep, 12 2010 @ 12:19 PM
i dont know much about solar activity but i find it interesting...

what would happen if this did make contact with the earths magnetic feild?? would it just effect our satalites and communications or the weather too??
just out of curiosity

This current blast won't do much except maybe make some people in the north happy with some brilliant Northern Lights, but even there, it is only a 30% chance of seeing them.

Sunspot 1106 is giving us a small chance of C-class flares, again, nothing to worry about at all. If you have a solar filter, it does look pretty cool!

posted on Sep, 14 2010 @ 02:31 PM
Here is a really cool photo from SpaceWeather that shows Sunspot 1106 and a long filament dragging along behind it.

1106 only has a small chance of C-class flares, but is really cool to watch.


posted on Sep, 15 2010 @ 12:34 PM
Sunspot 1106 still has a slight chance for C-class flares and there are some awesome northern lights in Norway. The Sun's magnetic field with Earth tipped south last night (which is normal), but is causing amazing sights like this pic below from SpaceWeather.

posted on Sep, 16 2010 @ 08:30 AM
Alrighty..looks like something for us to keep an eye on coming around the sun. This area has been crackling with energy.

"Solar Update - Solar activity has been at very low levels the past 24 hours, however that could change when a possible new sunpot rotates into view on the southeastern limb. The X-Ray Flux indicates multiple B-Class flares and there could be a chance for a C-Class flare.

Sunspot 1106 persists in the southern hemisphere, but remains fairly quiet."
