Nobody can say for sure as it depends how quickly the CME cloud is traveling but the concensus of opinion seems to be for 17th

Thanks coffeesniffer. Another question. I guess it all depends on the arrival time, but should I try viewing before sunrise or after sunset on the 17th? I have very little knowledge concerning solar flares and CMEs, but I know one thing for sure and that is the fact that I don't want to miss the auroras. They would be a wonderful sight for those of us this far south.

Alright, I've no idea what this means and it seems pretty complicated by just looking at that chart can someone elaborate or point me in the right direction for some online books or something to read please?

I've had so many nightmares as a kid that the sun was just destroying this planet. I've also had many nightmares that giant planet was right next to our's... hehe.


If the sun wasn't there, we wouldn't be here.

Lol.

When in doubt, blame the sun. Its always there, that stupid big yellow JERK!

in all seriousness though. Grade 1 science will fill in the gaps

Thanks! Actual scientific data, as much as I love peoples feelings about what could happen.

I'm pretty sure that was the M 6.6 flare that messed up their comms.

I don't think the X-class has hit yet.

Not sure if it's related to the solar flares, but it's a "balmy" 62 degrees here in NE Ohio. Was just outside in shorts and a long-sleeved t-shirt and was more than comfortable. If this is due to the recent solar activity then I am all for an M-class flare everyday from November through mid- April.

that's not good...
storms will be powerfull this year everywhere...
if it's hot and humide , that's enough for a BIG storm to form...

No the flares wouldn't effect the weather this way - just a nice warm front coming thru. Its been a beauty of a day here also. Hope it isn't the calm before the next big snow storm.

Its getting closer to the time/date of getting the effects from the X.2 flare. If anyone hears reports of outages or other incidents would be good to post them here. I will as well if I run across anything.

After reading the following, I am glad I brushed up on my survival skills and at least have some basic preparations, although not nearly enough. This is new territory. Perhaps the forthcoming geomagnetic storm is what the FEMA coffins are for. and what the “climate change” is all about. Also, I have several concerns about banks and bill paying in a situation like this, especially because of the fact that companies are pushing paperless billing and payment. I hope they plan to make a hard copy of records. Also, no gas equals no mail delivery. What do you think… bills will be deferred until the infrastructure returns? Bottom line is it will be up to each of us to prepare in order to assist in our survival.


Reducing the Risk From Geomagnetic Hazards*

In January 1997, a geomagnetic storm severely damaged the U.S. Telstar 401 communication satellite, which was valued at $200 million, and left it inoperable. A geomagnetic storm in 1994 damaged two Canadian communication satellites, which were replaced at a cost of about $400 million. A geomagnetic storm in 1989 "blacked out" the power distribution system for Quebec, Canada, and left 6 million people without electricity for 9 hours a t a cost of $300 million. Although these events and their specific impacts were not predicted, current technology promises to provide real-time warnings and measures to contend with solar-induced storms.

www.sciencemaster.com...

The following two quotes can be found in the “Extreme Geomagnetic Storm Societal Impacts” report here: www.eissummit.com...

From page 7:

The situation addressed here is unprecedented in modern society in that it is very likely to throw our quality of life back into the nineteenth century due to the fact that despite all of our vast modern technology based infrastructures, we will not be able to use them due to the loss of electricity. It will be a lot worse in that due to our dependence on our infrastructures and electricity we will not be able to produce the food or distribute what we have in time to sustain our city populations.


From page 11:

The apartments and houses will have no electricity, no running water no operating toilets, no refrigeration, no heat in winter, no means of boiling water for cooking or water sterilization, no natural gas available, no means of body disposal. There will also be those who will need to leave their homes and apartments because raw sewage will be overflowing from their toilets or spilling into the low lying sections of cities.
