That's an interesting question. There is an increase in UV radiation during a solar flare so yes, there would be more exposure on the surface whether or not you are in the arctic at the time. The question is how much of an increase. Even during a strong flare the UV radiation released is a pretty small fraction of the overall output of the Sun.

I don't think it would make much of a difference even if you were sunbathing in the arctic.

That black square is crazy!




sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov...



A sudden silence hit the Earth. If anything it was worse than the noise. For a while nothing happened.

The great ships hung motionless in the air, over every nation on Earth. Motionless they hung, huge, heavy, steady in the sky, a blasphemy against nature. Many people went straight into shock as their minds tried to encompass what they were looking at. The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don't.


A message from the past??? oO

A quick google search on GOES X ray LDE turned up this document. adsabs.harvard.edu... . Apparently LDEs (Long Duration Events) are common during CME (Coronal Mass Ejections). The study was done in 1986. You don't need to read much past the first couple paragraphs to see that it is pretty much situation normal.

If you wanted to look back in time and see it happen during previously noted CMEs you could pull up the archives located here: www.swpc.noaa.gov...

Just so you know, 9 x 6 does equal 42. In base 13 arithmetic.

Yes and yes,

It's just a LDE, I know that now. But the reason I posted this is b/c LDE's usually show a sharp tip on the graph.

This one is just wierd! Never seen such a LDE...

Oh It is Douglas Adams - Hitchikers guide to the galaxy - The best book and tv show ever made


They were the ships as described for the Vogon Constructor fleet, just before they wiped the Earth out to make way for the intergalactic Highway.

We were given notice, but we as humans, didn't bother to check the notice board to let us know we were going to be wiped out.. So it was all our fault


haha

Oh and edit - forgot - just being goofy, the book was written back when people still had digital watches as a novelty.

Amazing!! The graph was showing a blast several times larger then the sun itself!

PARTING SHOT




Departing sunspot 1169 erupted during the late hours of March 16th and hurled a spectacular coronal mass ejection (CME) over the sun's western limb. Click on the image to play a movie of the expanding cloud:





Only a week ago, sunspot 1169 was squarely facing our planet. If the eruption had occurred then, we'd be expecting bright auroras and geomagnetic storms before the weekend. Instead, this CME will sail wide right of Earth with negligible effect. Maybe next time. more images: from John Nassr of Baguio, Philippines; from Monty Leventhal OAM of Sydney. Australia.

Wow! Not to be a doomer or such, but just how long can we keep dodgeing the bullet? The Sun's been kicking off some pretty big blasts it seems lately.

Well it's just a matter of time before a big one hits...

We just missed this one, but a week ago we JUST dodged a X-flare, which was the biggest one in over four years of activity!

That was crazy, and it's not over yet, or so it seems.

Is the sun about to die?


No, the Sun would not "die" that way.
It will first expand, to be a red gigant.
Then it shred the helium and becomes a neutron star.

But don't worry, the Sun wil last another 10 billion years..
