I find this highly coincidental with approx. 20+ intense quakes in Japan over the last 24 hrs.

For those of us not to savy with what we are looking at, can you explain just what the means for dummies?

Oh man. Waiting to see if a CME comes with it.


This could be the END.


not really, but we will find out soon.

An X-Flare is a definite watch out moment until more data comes down the pike. Follow the links provided and you will see that it is a big spike.

This can have serious effects such as communications, satellites, grid outage etc.

Hope this helps.

does this mean more cell phone and television disruptions?
Or Worse?

I agree. Can someone explain the significance of this?

We had larger x flares recently that did nothing more than produce auroras and affect some radio frequencies. I wouldn't expect much from this.

Thank you so much for the reply. I am curious even though this will totally sound off the wall but, you think this ties in with anything about today being march 9th and the Mayan calender predictions of a stronger energy hitting us? lol Sorry, I know one is or appears to be more science then the other, but whos to say old science can't be accountable as well eh?

This will depend on direction, duration and intensity. I am by no means an expert but having watched these happen a few times, I do know that it is a must watch. Will it be Earth ending? No. Can it cause damage...absolutely.

If anyone else has more info, please jump in. I am finding a few sites with data erased already. (of course)

Just an observation from Virginia...I have noticed cell phone disruptions as well as disruptions on sat. T.V. for over a week now. Now I many not know much about the technical side of cell phones but I worked for Dish Network for over 3 years and understand those systems quite well and the disruptions I've seen were during times were it was clear skies no clouds and that's not normal especially with they're frequency. As far as I'm concerned the sats. up there are getting pummeled.

Didn't we just have a 2.2 glancing us and not have any significant effect on earth?
Is this 1.5 even directed towards us?
I never worry too much and I won't start now...

If my tv even flickers there will be trouble.

Well if your familiar with satellite dishes then youd know that this time of year near the equinox sun outages can occur. Basically caused by the sun interfering with the signal.

As I mentioned above...direction, intensity and duration all play a factor. I also find it curious as to the 20+ intense quakes in Japan in the last 20 hours. Who knows?

Wel that is rather odd in itself isnt it? I mean if it was just a normal type of thing why erase it? Things that make you go hmmmm.... I wish I could help but this is so out of my field. If I may though, if you were to take a gander at this link, Live Internet Seismic Server, do you think this could be responsible for all the over the top activity? Or at least one possible reason?

This could be bad or could be nothing. IF it came from the behemoth sunspot 1166 and had a large CME it will almost certainly have earth directed effects. Those effects could include the loss of GPS, Cell Phone coverage, partial and localized power grid failure, IF we are really unlikely permanent complete power grid failure (similar to an EMP and VERY unlikely, look up Carrington Event). Most likely it will have hurled a large CME and will cause some spectacular aurora's but as for the other effects we will just have to wait and see.

If the data has disappeared in some places it is an error, the NOAA solar weather center is reporting a certain "impulsive X1" flare and they are analyzing it as we speak, stay tuned for more data.

If you check more threads on the subject, you will find numerous references to missing EQ data and Solar data as well. It is getting to be quite regular.

Not to stir up the fear factor, just that I am not the only one noticing the missing and erased data over the last Month or so.

The Classification of X-ray Solar Flares or "Solar Flare Alphabet Soup" A solar flare is an explosion on the Sun that happens when energy stored in twisted magnetic fields (usually above sunspots) is suddenly released. Flares produce a burst of radiation across the electromagnetic spectrum, from radio waves to x-rays and gamma-rays. [more information] Scientists classify solar flares according to their x-ray brightness in the wavelength range 1 to 8 Angstroms. There are 3 categories: X-class flares are big; they are major events that can trigger planet-wide radio blackouts and long-lasting radiation storms. M-class flares are medium-sized; they can cause brief radio blackouts that affect Earth's polar regions. Minor radiation storms sometimes follow an M-class flare. Compared to X- and M-class events, C-class flares are small with few noticeable consequences here on Earth. This figure shows a series of solar flares detected by NOAA satellites in July 2000:

spaceweather.com...

Each category for x-ray flares has nine subdivisions ranging from, e.g., C1 to C9, M1 to M9, and X1 to X9. In this figure, the three indicated flares registered (from left to right) X2, M5, and X6. The X6 flare triggered a radiation storm around Earth nicknamed the Bastille Day event.

Thank goodness it was just an X1 - most likely just radio disturbances. Ham radios have had lots of skips the past 24 hours - sounds like the whole world is speaking at once at times.

I too wonder about the correlation of quakes with solar activity. Japan
just keeps rocking, one after the other - they don't need a CME
right now.

Staying tuned and thanks for the thread.
