As the Sun turns, so do the days of our lives.

a very active sunspot region is about to be pointed right at earth. The magnetic plumes can already be seen.

They say it's possible for the activity to peter out before we are looking down the barrel, so we will have to keep our

eyes open, and hope the magnetosphere is up for it. Ready for more Auroras!!

Nicolas Cage is going to predict a bunch of disasters....aliens are going to take is kids to a desgnated planet....then a HUGE solar flare is going to engulf earth turning it into Mars pt. 2

Here is the view from STEREO B.
While the region is large, the intensity of the activity does not look too great.


The intensity appears less than it was yesterday...judging by the UV emissions.


But until it swings around a bit more (another day or two) and the magnetic field configuration can be determined, we won't really know what it's up to.

well, there was an x class flare a week ago, so the possibilities range from nothing, to auroras, to major communication / power grid interruption / magnetosphere failure

i'm leaning towards good auroras.....i really with i was way up north!!!

NOAA Solar Data is just showing an M class flare. No its not big or aimed at earth, but I do find it out of the ordinary as there was not a rise in the X-Ray flux prior to the burst. It looks like it just came out of nowhere. If you look at the flares of the past few weeks there is a notable rise in the X-Ray flux disturbance.

Just a sun watcher finding something interesting.
