I just got a text alert from spaceweather.com that we're having a severe geomagnetic storm. KP8

A sunspot region can be stable, grow or decay over time.
More spots can be formed, they can join together to form one bigger spot.
When more spots are forming in a region, so can the complexity( magnetic structure, twisted polarities).
The chance of an eruption with M or X flares is higher in a complex region.

This is what AR1302 looked like last month


After turning this is what it looks like today

Am i looking at the charts correctly that we can see the auroras all the way down to Oregon or sw Washington?

I guess that depends on what charts you're looking at.
According to this one, no.

Sorry, I'm posting from my phone so I didn't link. I'm looking at a map on the spaceweather app. It seemed crazy that it would come that far down.

Spaceweather.com is showing the same chart (from NOAA).
It shows the auroral oval remaining above 60º N.

My tv turned off by itself last night and the cable was out for a few minutes, there was a active severe thunderstorm going on, but we all know its the solar storms that caused it.


If we see this type of activity continue there could be issues, but I think the magnitude would need to be stronger to do much damage.

Looks like another solar flare just happened. Can someone look at soho, the lasco c2 images for the last few hours. Not sure what i am looking at. Right at about 20:45.

I've only started following CMEs since the comet thread
is this cause for concern?

Nope.
It was on the far side of the Sun.
Side view, Earth on the right.

Even though there are 8 active regions facing the earth right now, none of them are that strong at all. Beta Gamma is when the big stuff happens:

All I can say is Wow!

Very impressive.
For someone like me who doesn't view the sun every day. I find that really cool. If that was coming at our earth, what would you say, would be the reactions.

Impressive aurora...for sure. Beyond that it gets iffy without enough data.
Satellite/GPS oddities...likely.
Electrical problems...possibly.

The End...nah.

Naw i don't believe that ends stuff. I'm just curious as to what problems something like that could cause our. satilites. And just how that would effect everyday life for us all. I've been doing some reading and it's amazing just how relialble we are on this technology.
