The solar wind is a fast-moving stream of electrically charged particles (electrons and ions) blown constantly from the Sun. The wind can get gusty during violent solar events, like coronal mass ejections (CMEs), which can shoot a billion tons of electrified gas into space at millions of miles per hour.
Earth's magnetosphere generally does a good job of deflecting the particles and snarled magnetic fields carried by CMEs. Even so, space storms and their vivid effects, like auroras which light up the sky over the polar regions with more than a hundred million watts of power, have long indicated that the shield was not impenetrable.

Can somebody help me understand why I can't see the red and blue lines I see in the chart?
I have gone outside and in the sky it just looks normal to me, what should I look for.
Just in case I will be strapping myself into bed so that if the room flips, I will be ok.

According to online sources monitoring the N magnetic pole, it is fluctuating around its usual places. No need to worry. Try not to be an alarmist if there is really nothing going on. It only discredits the sound research we often show on ATS.

Maybe this means something and maybe not. My grandpa lived to be a 105. One day we were sitting on the back steps watching the sun set. He looked over at me and said..."Years ago, the sun was on the left side of that Cedar tree and now it is on the right. I wonder why?" Anybody care to speculate?
