what does that have to do with anything?

solar cycle 24 is what's causing the solar flares, sure comets can stirr the pot a little, but i see them as having little or no effect in an already active sun...

the unusual ammount of comets hitting it to me are much more a strong indication that we and the sun are travelling through a much thicker cloud of space than these comets being and acting like a catalyst for more eruptions in the sun.

comets or not, much more eruptions are expected untill cycle 24 fades out, around 2013

I can show you at least three soho videos of comets smashing into the sun followed immediately by a large flair.

then do it, instead of just claiming it like it's some e-muscle flexing thing.

then im sure many other members can show you and pull plenty of other videos from comets hitting the sun and flares(not flairs) not happening.

Soooo Bluemooone2~
Are you sugesting that a comet hit the sun but they just didnt show it in the clip?

that was a COOL video.
It was crazy how you could see the ejected matter fall back down, and the sizzle up as it hits the sun...
Spectacular

HAHA! I'm just going to make the standard

"Thats what she said" joke...and hope I don't get banned..


Anyway I personally have not seen a explosion of this size in a while if ever. But I admit I don't follow this kind of stuff much, so I'm sure someone has probably seen bigger ones...

It's awesome they caught this on video.

Atleast he's not claiming they are ufos on suicide missions..
.I don't why they would edit out a comet though.

If you read the article, the flare was directed at the Earth.

From the article:




"It's nothing we really have to worry about," Young said in his video. "It's just really, really beautiful."

The coronal mass ejection is directed at Earth and moving at about 3.1 million mph (5 million kph), SDO mission scientists said in a statement.

makes me wonder what the make up of the comet was to withstand the sheer heat from the sun.

news said these things happen all the time last one on 2006 without much effect

guess the news is just playing it up when they start talking about geomagntic storms and effect satcom.

be aware but dont freak out abot cmes.

this is the closest you get to poking the sun with a stick


come into this system at the wrong angle and the sun sucks you in *tsss* your converted to a little squirt of solar flare

It was never directly aimed at Earth. Now it appears it may brush us.

Now with the benefit of more information and model input, the prediction for Geomagnetic Storm activity has been revised. The models have the trajectory of the CME to pass Earth with just a glancing blow, now expected to occur around 1200 UTC on June 9. Expect primarily G1 (minor) NOAA Scale levels then, and for the storm to persist for 24 hours.

Sun Unleashes 'Spectacular' & Powerful Eruption


www.space.com

The sun unleashed a massive solar storm today (June 7) in a dazzling eruption that kicked up a vast cloud of magnetic plasma that appeared to rain back down over half of the sun's entire surface, NASA scientists say.
The solar storm hit its peak at about 2:41 a.m. EDT (0641 GMT), but the actual flare extended over a three-hour period, said astronomer C. Alex Young, a scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center who runs a website called The Sun Today, in a video describing the event.
(visit the link for the full news article)



An unusual solar flare observed by a NASA space observatory on Tuesday could cause some disruptions to satellite communications and power on Earth over the next day or so, officials said.


Dramatic Solar flares could disrupt Earths Communications

Looks as if there are a few scientists that are preparing for the worst by way of effecting the earths many different satellites and communications may be in the path. Could have been it's own thread, but it fits here nicely!!

There's a chance. 'Round about the 9th.

Hawaii got snow for the first time in 4 decades, the forecast for the eastern sea board and localized states are even breaking records for early highs.


More than 1,000 record highs have been set in the U.S. already this month. New Orleans had four consecutive days of record heat and June 4 was the earliest 100-degree day ever.

even the chance is slight, there are a lot of things happening rather strangely at the same time...

Hawaii gets snow almost every year. I had a great skiing session on Mauna Kea in 1980.

Yes, there has been extreme weather. What does that have to do with a chance of an auroral display on the 9th?
