Im assuming this flare is a wave, so being a wave it travels at certain speed so hit moon first then us and would we be able to see it?

I'm no expert nor would I ever claim to be even if I knew, but last evening the moon was out in broad daylight like I have haven't seen in awhile. I can't give an exact time cause I wasn't bothered by it and I had no idea about the solar activity. I guess it was almost an hour before dark maybe more.

I live in Biloxi, Ms.

It's probably nothing but if it is I will switch certain things to my back up system and my inverters just like hurricane season, takes 5 min. But like I said im no expert.

yeah reddish hue, looks likes a red ring to me,


Please give your locations as to where you see these guys, I live in Arkansas and nothing as far as rings around the moon at all. Looks kinda reddish/orange when the clouds go over the moon and that's it here. Seems normal as far as I can see


lol...I don't even see a moon at all. I am in Idaho.

I used to always see the moon in the daytime...still do.

Maybe you just never paid attention or bothered to look?

I just hope the big guns are taking this opportunity to learn as much as they can and no lolly gaggin', so eventually down the road they can gather even small information, cause sooner or later our lifetime or a distant one, the Sun will be the ending factor if no other factor plays.

The Earth will go into it's changes for as long as there is a Earth or until the sun dies and turns it into a planetary nebula leaving behind a white dwarf core.

I just got back in from outside also. The clouds and the moon are pretty awe inspiring.
I am going to check it out in a little bit.

Cool. I love it when us 'intelligent' beings are flumoxed by something beyond our control. It's puts everyhting back into perspective of who we really are and how far we have(n't) come.

alright it has happened again. the other night I saw a massive moon halo, and tonight an even bigger one! and for the life of me my camera ain't picking it up. anyone in the desert SW can see this also? I'm in vegas and it's soo bright and big a blind person should see it.

There is another thread on this - Solar Flare Watch 2011 - here in So Cal about 20 miles from the ocean, we have a very thin fog cover and a huge halo around the moon. Nothing much else to speak to. Cats are fine, wireless phone, cable, satellite are all fine. I can, however, hear the "war games" from Camp Penelton and that's a bit unnerving. Bombs going off in the distance. The air is just so still that the sound really carries.

at 3:09 in that video I could of swore penn says "desert bus podcast" which is odd seeing as that game is from 95 and the term podcast came about nearly a decade later.

I have a report from the Ms. Gulf coast. I went outside and looked up at the moon and it literally blinded me to where I was seeing spots when I looked away, I got others to view as well they all looked down in a blinding manner. I cannot even locate or see the terrain, it's like looking into a flashlight. There is also a big ring of dimmer light emitting from it.

I dont know if its because I don't know what im saying cause i havent looked that much before, but living in the country I have layed on my back and gazed at the stars many of times and never got blinded like this. Although I have seem it bright before.

If your in the southern US, go out and see if your getting the same. It's probably nothing but I think it's cool.

here in sydney australia last night the moon was probably the brightess i have ever seen it. it almost hurt your eyes to stare at it. i dont live near the city so i have no affects of the street lights. on most nights you can see millions of stars but last night i could see very few and could see at night probably the furthest ever. it was a massive full moon.
