It will affect more and more electricity around the globe. But dont worry, we can live without it

It will not have much effect on electricity at low latitudes.
The tropics don't see much geomagnetic activity.

you got me there.
But in the tropics they dont have to worry on losing their source of electricity, they can do without it.
But ok, doesnt count for the whole equator region of course.

But since you're here, do you know what the data on this site means?

It's some data from different observatories but i cant find anything on what the graphs mean.

SID monitors record the propagation of VLF signals from various transmitters.

It's a way of noting changes in the ionosphere caused by solar activity. Solar flares cause increased ionization on the sunward side of Earth. This generally causes the D-layer to descend and reduce propagation.

Thanks,
Can you give me some more info on how these frequencies are disturbed, or better, measured?
And what they can tell from it when changes happen?
When a flare occur, how much time does it need to see changes?

The ionospheric effects occur about 8 minutes after the flare. In other words, as soon as the electromagnetic radiation arrives.
Here's a bit about it. It's sort of obsolete since satellites can now directly record the flares.

That helped understanding.
Thanks

Sunspot group 1263 produced that Xclass flare, right?
That video is of 1263 on the 5th, after back to back Mclass flares from 1261.

Now I know that because 1263 is a newer group of spots and it makes sense that 1261 would be finishing its activity, giving rise to more activity in 1263, but I just think its cool that I can kinda tell what the sun is doing, right?

Yes It came from region 11263

From the pics i saw after the eruption, i think another event is possible.


Region 11263 produced the largest flare of cycle 24, a major X6.9 event at 08:05 UTC. When available STEREO and LASCO images will be studied to determine if there was a potentially geoeffective CME associated with this event. There's a possibility of a significant proton event as well.



The CME associated with the X6.9/2B flare was fast and wide. While the core CME won't impact Earth, there's a slight chance of a weak flank impact on August 11 or 12. The above 10 MeV proton event appears to have peaked near 30 pfu.

Based on currently available LASCO imagery the CME developed into a full halo. The CME could impact Earth on August 11 and cause unsettled to active conditions with a chance of minor storm intervals.

What is the source of that quote?
I can't find any evidence of a full halo CME.

sorry forgot to put the link

relocator already did.

still trying to search some pics or video that could confirm this

from the cactus data(Lasco) i would say its a partial halo, what do you think?

Ah. Ok. 158º. Partial halo.

Ok, I understand now.
360 degrees or halo4 is a full halo and the graph shows the direction.
This was halo2 and 158 degrees, so partial.
thanks for making me watch twice.

I discovered we have a planetary alignment August 16, 2011. Earth - Sun - Venus
I confirmed it with my solar system simulator - Celestia - It's free.
---------------
It may have an effect on our sun. I could tell you to keep an eye on solar activity for that day
but you and Phage appear to be -always- staring at our sun.
---------------
BTW, the alignment prediction was made by a very large crop circle in England.
It looks like a huge snake.

Thought I would share a video of some solar polar activity


This is the latest and last videos I made before Helioviewer went down for maintenance. This prominence eruption happened yesterday, yet I have been unable to find the images on sdo or stereo, as they have not updated their image finders.

Its just a little more strangely mesmerizing to watch a fitment fly off the north pole than the usual

Hey, great link!
I like my Celestia 1.6 better.
It's a free download.
It works great. I hope they add more to it.

BTW, found conjunction here.
