Holy crud I hope this isn't Earth facing, looks like a monster CME!

That animated photo kinda looks like my abdomen x-ray after visiting Taco Bell. Just sayin.

Pretty cool animation though. Maybe my compass will spin as this passes by.....

What would happen if the sun just concentraited all of its energy/radiation into one big blow or whatever you call it

Then none of us would ever have another worry, ever again.

We would be thrown into another life.


Can you say human toast?

or more accurately..
Human dust. lol

lol, what the hell you doing eating taco bell?

that meat was one class lower and it'd be illegal to sell/use as dog chow. (no kidding).
lol

Ya'll people are idiots... solar flares are good for us, they elevate consciousness.

Of course, you have been inundated with propaganda to turn you against the one thing that gives life to this entire planet.

These threads are so damn silly...

Nothing wrong with discussing what these things can cause. I'm not worried about it put it that way

Insulting people is a sure sign of an elevated conciousness.


Has anyone figured out for sure if this is facing earth or not? I'm pretty curious as I'd like to see some correlation with large flares and seismic activity.

definitly interested to see what's going to be happening in the next couple days as far as earthquakes and volcanoes and such...we can do our own little study...

my step dad was telling me they are expecting a HUGE solar flare in the next year or so, that NOTHING will work, batteries, no good, like we'll be back to making fire and cooking, cars won't work, computers wont work...anyone know anything about this?

Solar Summary

Flares: none.

10.7cm/SSN 110/60 110/60 105/54

COMMENT: Region 1176 (S16W78),decaying slightly, is now beginning
to rotate off the disc. Region 1183 (N15W12) has increased somewhat
in magnetic complexity but produced only two sub-flares. STEREO
A images show a CME at ~1124 UT. SDO images appear to indicate
the source as spotless region 1181 (S27W29). ACE shows solar
wind parameters being disturbed over the reporting period with
speed rising from about 400 to 650 km/s. The IMF Bz component
fluctuated strongly between +/- 10 nT much of the time; the density
data seems to indicate combined CME/coronal hole effects.

There is the slight chance of an M-class flare over the forecast
period. Based on available images at this time, it is not expected
the CME will be geo-effective. Solar wind parameters are expected
to remain disturbed on days one and two due to the effects of
a recurrent coronal hole moving into a geo-effective position,
before subsiding on day three.

That has been theorized by many NASA Scientists and independent Physicists for a while now. A large enough CME could produce mass breakdowns like that on the Earths surface, however, no one is really sure whether the "predicted" CME in 2012 will be on that large of a scale. Although, it is speculated that it could be.

yes, very good, oh enlightened one!

Who says they are "worried"?

Certainly not me.

I get excited over these things, not afraid and fearful and worried.

So stop "ASSuming" things, that is something an "idiot" does.



Now stop insulting people..
The dear enlightened being that you are.

Go "elevate your consciousness" elsewhere.,

Well, we are still 1.5 - 2 years away from the solar maximum on the cycle 24. Actually the previous cycle 23 was quite dynamic too, after the maximum the activity decreased , everyone believed we will see the smooth decrease in activity then the activity climbed again so we ended up having two maximums! The cycle 22 was also double-maximed so to say, and this is quite new if we consider the times we started to properly observe the sun. If the same pattern continues, we will have a very active cycle 24 , and if the maximum is spring 2013 it means it will keep on building up, so yes trouble ahead. The sun is all right, doing stuff it always did however our civilization was built while ignoring the sun and this could cost us. The modern civilization depends too much on electronics and electricity grids.. good luck to us!

The worst case scenario (beside ELE) on solar storm was nicely presented by Discovery:

Space weather has finally reported it...


NASA twin STEREO spacecraft observed a spectacular coronal mass ejection launched from the vicinity of decaying sunspot 1176 on April 3rd around 0500 UT. The blast was not Earth directed. Nevertheless, there is a slim chance that it deliver a glancing blow to Earth's magnetic field on or about April 6th

Thats from the stereo ahead satelite. Checking the stereo behind show the it is coming in our direction but the brint looks to pass below us. The magnetosphere should look busy in a couple days. But on another thought, considering the path that Elenin is apparently following, looks like its headed right at it. Amazing force of gravity is generating.

Just thinking
a good blast like that on elenin and we may have a close call yet
