I was observing the X-ray monitors for the sun, and was amazed by what I saw.
In over four years of monitoring, i've never seen anything like this.

The graph just stopped spiking!

It is now a stable line in the C-class flare range.
Well what this all basically means is that instead of the occasional spike in energy,
the sun is throwing CONSTANT C-class flare energy directed onto a point in space!

If we are in the path of such a energy beam, we'd get fried!


There was someone who mentioned the satilite eclipses, involving possible data dropouts.
When an eclipse occurs, we get a data DROPOUT,
that means we get NO data at all! This is COMPLETELY different!

Yes, flares can last for days, but this one stabilizes like no other! The line is almost completely flat!


If it is the WHOLE sun is sending this out 360 degrees then we will be in SERIOUS trouble!



Images:

The GOES X-ray flux plots contain 1 and 5 minute averages of solar X-rays in the 1-8 Angstrom (0.1-0.8 nm) and 0.5-4.0 Angstrom (0.05-0.4 nm) passbands.

Red is for 0.8 nm and blue for 0.4 :-)

The GOES X-ray Flux 3-day plot contains 5 minute averages of solar X-ray output.



The GOES X-ray flux 6-day plot contains 1 minute averages of solar X-rays




What is happening?!

What we see here is basically the energy output of the sun in Watts m-2.

Second line.

while the xray does scare me a bit, why do the other graphs show hardly any movement?? (Ireally dont understand I am kind of dumb when it comes to this!)

I too have no idea what you are talking about...

... but I really want to know what you mean as you appear to know what you are talking about and seem excited/worried about what you have witnessed

I'm also grasping.. I'll post back here if I find anything else.. It just happened a hour or two ago so it's VERY fresh!

Nothing on spaceweather.com yet.

I am presuming that the blue line is the average and the red line is the Sun's current state over the past 6 days.. is that right?

Is the sun flat-lining?? This is weird.

Is the sun about to die?

But is the difference big, is there a problem with the sun. Because I reed somewhere it was part of a cycle. What do you think.

That is incorrect,

According to spaceweather.com sunspot AR1169 (the one that was producing the huge X-flares we have been seeing) is no longer pointed directly at us anymore.

I also dont have a clue as to what this might mean for us. Anyone out there who can explain this event in terms that will make sense to the lay person?

Are we looking at possible solar storms that might shut down power for instance? or just increased radiation? Or none of the above? Or this solar activity will make purple dinosaurs sing sappy songs?

Its an intriguing graph, but......................meaningless if someone doesnt explain what we are seeing in terms even the inept can understand.

Yup, noticed this also. I usually watch for spikes and over 6 months, have not noticed this curve. What is this?

That's a very strange curve on the graph....I've never seen it do that before...
I will keep an eye on it!

Thanks for posting!

Yea...The place I have been watching the sun has stopped putting out info since the 14th...Here is there link:www2.nict.go.jp...

Guess they may have been told to, who knows why they aren't broadcasting now.....But, I would say to really watch out for the 19th-20th ....

Precisely what I was thinking... though I'd like to think if it was anything like that it would be a process of thousands of years rather than just a few.

Does anyone have a recent photograph of the sun?
Can't help but wonder if it looks any different.

Is it getting quiet before the storm?

Or, more than likely it is completely normal.
