As Phage stated an M flare is not very strong. I just wanted to wish you well and let you know I am hoping for a quick recovery for your daughter.

We will see in a few days

Alrighty, now we might see some more Solar action! 1163 now has a beta-gamma filed.

SDO catches spectacular Monster Prominence!


It amazes me how they zoom in so close.

It was not on the earth-facing side yet when it went off.

I call that Gods - eye candy -!
The SDO is worth every single penny it cost to put it up there.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I went directly to SDO page and downloaded the whole clip.
Now i can look at this Monster Prominence offline.

Solarcycle 24 is reporting a M 1.1:

Solar Update - The flare activity continues on Monday around Sunspot 1164 with multiple C-Class flares and an M1.1 Flare at 12:52 UTC. Continue to monitor this region for further activity.
www.solarcycle24.com...

Space Weather has not updated the chances for a flare since yesterday, so they are showing:

FLARE 0-24 hr 24-48 hr
CLASS M 35 % 35 %

and today's update is still showing that 1164 has a Beta-Gamma field:

There is a Comet "Elenin" heading our way and is going to line up in the second week of march with the earth and the sun. This Comet has already been linked to earth quakes back in it's last alignment. Check out the link and let me know what you think, I have a feeling that this is going to be a sort of trifecta of planatary goodness.....but I guess that all depends on who your voting for


www.youtube.com...

Looking forward to an postulations and theories....however, I am begging to think theories are news of bygone days.

Well i will pose the same question as when nasa did the live cam feed on comet temple 1, did the solar wind from the "flare" cause enough of a disturbance to change temple 1 trajectory,, ?? i never did get an answer, scientifically backed by the RAW data they were collecting at the time the "wave" hit,,,,, so will Comet Enlin? trajectory change if there is a powerfull enoungh , blow from the Sun? don't know nobody has replied.

We're currently having a magnetic storm SOURCE

Planetary K-index
Now: Kp= 5 storm
24-hr max: Kp= 5 storm



MAGNETIC STORM IN PROGRESS: A solar wind stream hit Earth's magnetic field during the early hours of March 1st, sparking a G1-class geomagnetic sttorm, in progress. High latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras.


Also if you're interested, here is the current auroral oval over North America (you can see other locations if you go to the SOURCE linked above and go to the image on the lower left of the page).


And here is an image of the magnetosphere (simulation) as of 8am PST


I know we were expecting some solar wind around March 3 & I think someone mentioned an M1 flare earlier (?), but I wasn't expecting a magnetic storm today. Wow.

Great job catching catching that! I had no idea anything was inbound. We are always lucky when it is only a G-1.

For those that don't know the different categories, here is a link to the definitions of the NOAA Scales.

Auroras alert - keep your eyes to the sky. This one is Alaska!
