Interesting coincidence that summer is on the way.
Just sayin'.


To clarify - This is what made me smile


is it me.. or just coincidence that everytime i post on a solar flare thread the thread dies
my appologies to the OP -

edit on 30-5-2011 by Nekbet because: needed to add that

Here's the thing. You're looking at a picture of a solar active spot on the sun some 149,597,900 km away. Now use some logical thought. Is that spot on the equator? no. How far away from the equator is it? Probably several dozen Earths in distance. Now think. Can a blast with a vector not on a direct 90 degree angle to the earth possibly hope to even remotely affect the Earth after traveling 149,597,900 km? I'm betting no. Just do some basic 3-4-5 trig on that.

Yayyyyyy!!!!!!!!!

Looks like high 50's low 60's the rest of the week on the east side...
maybe a little sun flare could boost it is bit.

Awesome link too keep track of solar flares and whats going on with the sun.

Phage,..
I'd agree with you,. however,.
This coincidence I speak of has happened in winter,.
Warmer days when sun spots are larger or more than one, on the sun.

Thanks for the heads up. Now I have an excuse to tell my teacher for why my online class' assignment is late

I just moved into a new place in the mountains of Asheville that has no AC. Well if this solar flare hits neither will anyone else. Thank god I have my walmart pool.

November 8, 2006 Scientists using NASA's Swift satellite have spotted a stellar flare on a nearby star so powerful that, had it been from our sun, it would have triggered a mass extinction on Earth. The flare was perhaps the most energetic magnetic stellar explosion ever detected.

This was a star actually a bit smaller than the Sun. Could happen at any time. The Sun is known to sort of "flare out" at comets as they approach. And there is one coming.

Nothing anyone could possibly do about something like this. We wouldn't even know what happened, we would just be burnt to a crisp. Can't really worry about it.

Wrong kind of star.

Fortunately, our sun is now a stable star that doesn't produce such powerful flares. And II Pegasi is at a safe distance of about 135 light-years from Earth.

Technically... if you think of the structure of the Galaxy and the Universe... we are always sailing in alien space. All of existence is in motion and never returns to exactly where it was.

The earth orbits the sun, the sun orbits the black hole at the center of our galaxy and galaxies are moving away from each other. So we are always in "alien space".

Has anyone here ever reeeaaallly wanted to get more deeply involved with a thread, but been just too darn tired to do so? 'Cause I have so many things floating around upstairs that I would love to say, but I don't have the energy to formulate them.

I will say this, though...
XPLodER - we might have to also consider solar activity's impact on weather in light of the steady decay in the earth's magnetic field, or in the fluctuations of the field that have been seen as of late. It might be somewhat presumptuous of us to assume that solar flares and such can't do something because of factors associated with a fully functional magnetosphere, when the magnetosphere may not be as fully functional as it was even a decade ago.
And solar activity may not have a direct electrical affect on the weather. It may certainly be more of a chain reaction. Like, solar flares causing reactions in the upper atmosphere that produce effects in the lower atmosphere... or even effects in the upper atmosphere that directly impact global weather systems.

Solar activity and the earth's climate are both very complex and chaotic systems.
I am a fan of Chaos Theory.

The same one I learned it from, I'm guessing: the textbook of Common Sense and General Knowledge.
Solar flares barely make a dent in the magnetosphere, let alone have any affect on the weather. And even the largest of CMEs (which, note, are not solar flares), which, given an absolute worst case scenario, can kill electronics at the surface, don't have any affect on the weather... especially not in increasing the temperature. The world's history of nuclear tests have likely had more of an impact on the weather than have solar flares and CMEs combined.

If this is true, we should be seeing some fantastic Aurora Borealis in the next few days. Watch the night skies, they may even be lower into the US than usual. The northern lights have been fairly frequent this year. I don't believe it will mess with anything except satellites and if strong enough, our electronics. However, we always have a time when satellite tv is erratic in the spring, so that's nothing new.

As for the mention of weather this year, I'm in North Dakota, and we haven't seen 70 yet here either. Been a cold, wet, late spring. We also have record flooding on major rivers (the Missouri and Yellowstone).



Peace!
SK

this is merely assumed, it is not known.

It is not "assumed".

The sun is a G class star, a yellow dwarf.

II Pegasi A is a K class star, an orange-red star. It is also part of a very close binary system, something which probably contributes its known violent behavior.
