Location location location. What direction were those eruptions facing? This one was earth.

Also depends on the amount of coronal discharge, rather than just x-ray intensity.

This was a monster...

Once again i must ask the question in all seriousness will this monster solar flair impact the trajectory of Comet Temple 1.

And if so ,,,,,,,,,,,?????

Doubtful, but it could do something to the probe that is nearby.

If it did affect temple 1 and gave I and earthbound trajectory would the results he disastrous?

Thankyou lasertaglover....added to my favorites!
Check out strictlyhonest.com. Someone on here introduced me to it the other day, cant remember who or where, but I love it! Tons of links....


That had to be me on the introduction forum, but forgot to say that it is my own site.
Glad that people like it.
I hope to improve it in the upcoming days.

Greetings

Thanks for posting this and keeping us up to date.

For the novices can you shed any light as to the different classes of solar flares? i.e where in the spectrum does X-class 2.2 come in ?

Thank you

Thank you, I am feeling particularly lazy today I apologise I could have looked myself.

So basically then an X-2 flare is a major issue and should be noted as such, instead, there seems to be no mention of it in the MSM? could this have any effect on earthquakes/natural disasters?

I 'assume' it can have an effect on the power grids, a 'radio 3 alert level' was given which means it influences some frequencies' (gsm? sattelites?)
You can also keep an eye on this one: www.swpc.noaa.gov... (you can click the alerts)

(I'm no expert, just trying to understand all this info lately as an ordinairy guy)

Hey thanks for all that, great info!

I live in new zealand (wich is pretty south if you ask me!) what time would these auroras be visible to me? and what day?

All I know is the last X-class solar flare occurred in December 2006. Does anyone know how big that one was that knocked out Quebec's transformers in March 1989? I can't find the size of the event anywhere..

For what it's worth, just saw this on twitter:

i hope it wont cook us alive ! this could be something really big if it would hit the earth!

This one is earth directed..

So it will probaly cause radio blackout, a long term radioactive storm and maybe even the northern light over north america and the north of europe.

Just did a MSM news look-up on most of the major US news agencies (CNN, Fox, and MSNBC), and neither CNN or FOX have anything at all. MSNBC had one article on the M-class flare from earlier this week here:

www.msnbc.msn.com...

When I did a Google News search on this, there was this current news article from Korea that was interesting:

Solar Flare Suspends Parts of Radio Communications in Korea
www.arirang.co.kr...

The rest of the news listed is again about the M-Class flare. This article I found interesting as well regarding the M-class event:

Solar storm unlikely to cause communications problems:
www.techeye.net...

The point of all of this is that I am a little bit confused as to why the MSM is not talking about this more.

If Korea is already suffering technical issues, and the big stuff has not hit us yet, what is going on?

I really, really do not want to be alarmist in anyway, but at the same time, I am having a heck of a hard time finding more data and event descriptions of past Earth-directed Solar Flares. I posted a list earlier of large solar flares, but the list was lacking directional information. I'm not done, but in getting into that list and looking up each individual event, I am finding that there is not much information in relation to the acutal direction of each event.

So I'm going to go pour another cup of java and think this through a little bit more, but I would love some ATS feedback and help with:

1) The media did some reporting of the M-class event. Why is this X-class not being reported?

2) Does anyone have any references to a history of Earth-directed X-class flares?

Thanks
