Hey guys,

We just had a X1.5 solar flare today, at 23:16. Here's where you can see the data: www.lmsal.com...

I wonder if it is linked to the huge solar storm two days ago:



I'm actually trying to figure out if the flare is Earth-directed. Anyone knows how we do that?

To me it is clear that we are riding the solar maximum. It looks like it's gonna be a really active one.

Any thoughts on the matter?

if this is what they are like now i can only imagine when they reach their peak at the end of next year -beginning of 2013 and if they are earth direct i think they will knock out a few more things that satellites. I believe it hit real hard in 1860s and apparently all the telegraph polos and houses burst into flames burning all that was in the buildings

Well, my car's navigation system is wacky this evening and it's internal compass seems a few degrees off. It's a new car (7 months old) and I haven had this issue before. I don't think I was getting a satilite signal.

I didn't know flares could burn things here on Earth. With all the technologies, this is gonna be a big shock to humanity. I believe this may enlighten us, coming to a realization of how much we depend on technologies.

As I said, I can't be sure the picture and the X flare are related. The picture was taken yesterday, and the flare happened a couple hours ago. I was awaiting for the X flare to show up on SolarSoft yesterday, and it didn't appear. Maybe this is some kind of delay because I didn't witness any particular flare on SOHO images today...
