Last two were M5.3, 4.4.

I wonder how this will effect the weather over the next few days or weeks? Seems likely the atnospheric energy budget will get a booster shot, resulting in more energetic storms.

Anyone know for sure?

I am not sure if what I noticed is also related to high solar activity in any way : Me and my family are using 3 different mobile networks. Regardless on what combination of two networks we try to communicate, the networks seem to take hours in order to deliver a text message , also a lot of times when we try to call, it says "network busy" on my mobile. At work, the internet was very slow too, also my home internet using Voice Over IP is suddenly very low quality. Anyone else experiencing this?

I'm pretty sure this is because you are under surveillance and they are scanning your phone calls, text messages, VOIP calls, and internet use which tends to slow them down... Just a guess.

Really solar flares cool, now where are they going? when and when are they hitting.
you can post all kinds of information on solar flares without where there going the information is has no logic

Well, in South Africa, they're warning people to " ...wear high sunscreen factor at the moment or preferably go shopping..." due to solar flare activity.

Yes, nothing like a little helpful shopping. Thanks SWWC’s forecaster Kobus Olckers!

the information is has no logic to you, but if she (the sun) is getting all fired up that is logic to someone. logic enough to know eventually one of the flares is going to hit somewhere other than south africa, and probably soon

but, nothing to see here

move along
move along

Prepared jointly by the U.S. Dept. of Commerce, NOAA,
Space Weather Prediction Center and the U.S. Air Force.
Updated 2011 Mar 07 2200 UTC


Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 066 Issued at 2200Z on 07 Mar 2011

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 06/2100Z
to 07/2100Z: Solar activity has been high. Regions 1164 (N24W59),
1165 (S20W78), and 1166 (N11E12) produced M-class events during the
past 24 hours, all of which contain a Beta-Gamma-Delta magnetic
configuration. Region 1166 produced a M1/Sf observed at 07/1430Z
with an associated Type II and Type IV radio sweep. Region 1164
produced a M3 at 07/2012Z with an associated Type II radio sweep and
a Tenflare that was in progress at this report time. The SOHO/LASCO
imagery observed a full halo CME (a further analysis is underway).
Images from the C2 first observed the CME at 07/1448Z while the C3
imagery first observed the event at 07/1518Z. The Penticton 10.7 cm
flux and the 90 day mean are estimated for today (07 March) due to
flare enhanced readings.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be
moderate on day one (08 March) with M-class events expected. Solar
activity for days two and three (09-10 March) are expected to be low
with a chance for an M-class event as Regions 1165 and 1164 transit
around the west limb.

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 06/2100Z to 07/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet to unsettled. The greater than 2 MeV
electron flux at geosynchronous orbit reached high levels during the
period.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be predominantly quiet for the next three days (08-10
March).

III. Event Probabilities 08 Mar-10 Mar
Class M 75/50/40
Class X 10/05/01
Proton 01/01/01
PCAF Green

IV. Penticton 10.7 cm Flux
Observed 07 Mar 153
Predicted 08 Mar-10 Mar 150/150/145
90 Day Mean 07 Mar 091

V. Geomagnetic A Indices
Observed Afr/Ap 06 Mar 003/005
Estimated Afr/Ap 07 Mar 006/008
Predicted Afr/Ap 08 Mar-10 Mar 005/005-005/005-005/005

VI. Geomagnetic Activity Probabilities 08 Mar-10 Mar
A. Middle Latitudes
Active 05/05/05
Minor storm 01/01/01
Major-severe storm 01/01/01
B. High Latitudes
Active 05/05/05
Minor storm 01/01/01
Major-severe storm 01/01/01

Yes sir I have experienced this. It still does it occasionally though. My friends thought I was blowing them off or ignoring them when they sent texts to me. So when they came over I sat directly beside them and had them send me a text. 5 min. go by and nothing, 10 min....nothin. So we lose patience and go back to hanging out. 2 hours later the message arrives and I'm off the hook.

I know there is a delay of several minutes for the signal to bounce back to the towers and so on. Sprint is my service provider so my expectations are already very low. I dunno if it has to do with the sun, but I know I have the same problem.

Than I will have to rely on my logic of observation in reality, burning screaming people!

I think we'll be OK, because the huge alien robot craft that have been flying round the sun since January 2010 are actually here to help us, and tame those powerful solar eruptions. Look at the beam of energy being fired at the sun earlier today(08 03 11)

Is the sun reacting to a possible metor or comet approaching?

Pretty big CME going off right now:




Another M-class has gone off..1.5

Earlier another CME went off aimed at us:


FAST CORONAL MASS EJECTION: A coronal mass ejection (CME) exploded from the vicinity of sunspot 1164 during the late hours of March 7th. It lept away from the sun traveling some 2200 km/s, making it the fastest CME since Sept. 2005. A movie of the cloud prepared by Karl Battams of the Naval Research Lab seems to show a small but non-negligible Earth-directed component. This CME and at least one other could brush against Earth's magnetic field on March 9th or 10th. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras.


I love the way they phrase it: non-negligible Earth-directed component. Anyone care to translate what non-negligible means?

Here's a link showing a video of the CME that's on the way.

I think I agree with the "non-negligible" assessment.
