If it is serious and life threatening, you'll find out soon enough!

I'm not in panic mode, yet.
Do realize that a constant beam of that c-class can and will hurt a planet crossing in it's path.

It's completely different, a normal flare erupts in seconds!, this is taking hours!
I've been monitoring and researching for quite a while now and this is TOTALLY new for me!


You are right to say flares can last several days, but they don't stabilize like this one does. It looked like a sine wave but is now almost completely flat.

Strange. Someone go get your solar expert friends for crying out loud.

That is very likely unrelated, but interesting nonetheless.

Is this what is causing the strange data?

www.spaceweather.com...


Every day from now until April 2, 2011, there will be a short break in the data flow as the Earth moves between SDO and the sun. The length of an eclipse can be as long as 72 minutes and they happen at about midnight at the SDO ground station in Las Cruces, NM (0700 UT). Never before has missing data looked so good.

I do not see a stop in the data flow, what I see is actually a good flow of data! I am not sure where we can see some historical data, I am also unfamiliar with the graph..

It's again UFO hidden by NASA, or maybe brown dwarf they do not want us to see, who knows?

No, this would cause a DROPOUT of data, meaning it would record NO data at all..

Meaning the stable output overall INCREASED drastically!


If you look closely you see the eclipse happens right after 04:00 or 05:00 UTC every day. Which is not the case with this beauty!

Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 075 Issued at 2200Z on 16 Mar 2011
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 15/2100Z
to 16/2100Z: Solar activity was at low levels. During the period,
Region 1169 (N17W75) produced a few low-level C-class events
including a long-duration (LDE) C3/Sf flare at 16/2034Z. The flare
was still in progress at the time of this writing. Associated with
this LDE was a partial-halo CME, first observed in LASCO C2 imagery
at 16/1912Z. A preliminary plane-of-sky estimate indicated a
velocity near 500 km/s. The region maintained its beta-gamma
magnetic classification as it approached the west limb. New Region
1173 (S28E39) emerged on the disk as a bi-polar C-type group. The
Penticton 10.7 cm flux and the 90-day mean are estimated for today
(16 March) due to flare enhanced readings.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be low
with a chance for an M-class event from Region 1169 for the next two
days (17 - 18 March). On day three (19 March), activity is expected
to be very low with a chance for a C-class event.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 15/2100Z to 16/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet. Observations from the ACE satellite
indicated solar wind velocities averaged about 370 km/s while the Bz
component of the interplanetary magnetic field was mostly north at
+1 to +5 nT.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet for the next three days (17 - 19 March).
III. Event Probabilities 17 Mar-19 Mar
Class M 25/05/01
Class X 01/01/01
Proton 01/01/01
PCAF green
IV. Penticton 10.7 cm Flux
Observed 16 Mar 095
Predicted 17 Mar-19 Mar 090/085/080
90 Day Mean 16 Mar 094
V. Geomagnetic A Indices
Observed Afr/Ap 15 Mar 000/000
Estimated Afr/Ap 16 Mar 001/002
Predicted Afr/Ap 17 Mar-19 Mar 005/005-005/005-005/005
VI. Geomagnetic Activity Probabilities 17 Mar-19 Mar
A. Middle Latitudes
Active 10/10/10
Minor storm 01/01/01
Major-severe storm 01/01/01
B. High Latitudes
Active 15/15/15

This is just a global report on how things are.

No info on this anomaly, yet.. But thanks anyway :-)

I think "OVERDRIVE" would be considered to be when the sun actually turns into a red giant and eats every planet up in our solar system, well most of them

Has the sun flat lined? NO that's impossible stars don't just go out

I don't think anything serious is happening here at all i'm not an expert of course but i swear it seems as soon as there is a slight odd occourance with the sun, that people/members on here do not full understand, then its like well were all going to die right after,

At least we may have a better summer on the way

Is the sun about to die?



Far from that my friend!, In my view, the sun is waking up and switching gears... In a VERY particular way I have never seen before!

Its looks like a Pixelation problem, notice the square is the same size as the others next to it

It mentioned a CME ocuring at the same time as the LDE. So tell me, what are the odds of the repurcussions of this reaching the earth on the 19th? The same day we have a geologist predicting a large quake for the west coast?

That could be.. Only thing is I've never seen such a long LDE!

I doubt anybody else has! It's completely new to me and probably everybody else too!

This is about current GEOMAGNETIC storms. Big difference right there
