What is the classification of this. and do we have an estimate on when SOHO will be able to tell the poloarity.

Is the basis that this is "the biggest ever" based just on the graphics or is there anything else to back this up???

Thanks for sharing - yes that looks like one whoppa of a flare

Now all we need is the Sun Worshippers in here so we know if this is going to effect us.

Seems like a really excited new member who was introduced to spaceweather.com or the SOHO observatory for the first time. I think spaceweather has it listed as an M2 -Class CME still pretty big looks wicked on the SDO footage but by no means would I got out on a limb calling it the biggest ever... still a pretty amazing sight too see....

Wow, I've been watching the sun for a while now, and that's the biggest one I've seen. I checked my nasa app, they say it might hit earth on June 8th or 9th.
Yeah Nasa says its just a M-class flare. Are they lying? Because on a different page there's a guy saying "never seen anything like it"

The app I use is 3D Sun. It's an official nasa app.

Point being, if this is a sufficiently strong X class flare. with a southern polarity. Say bye bye to your electronics.

Worse case, it will blow out the transformers. and they take months if not years to replace.

Basically back to the 1800's

I don't think this was shot off in earth's direction

The sun dictates earths activities.
I'm sure the usual suspects will be here soon to debunk the size part of the title.
they're faster then I thought

On what do you base your sensationalist headline, Your links are not playing it up as much as you are.Largest cme ever ? Or is it just the largest one you have seen since you found the site recently.

In all fairness the OP's title is actually the title of the the youtube video posted.

Unless he / she is the poster of the video, then they are just following the general rules in not paraphrasing external content.

Funny, spaceweather's been down for the last couple hours, at least on my end. But, yea, we had an earth directed X1 or X2 class flare a couple months ago.. Remember, it was the biggest since I think 2004 or 2005? Some folks freaked but I don't recall it causing too much fuss.


Within a class there is a linear scale from 1 to 9, so an X2 flare is twice as powerful as an X1 flare, and is four times more powerful than an M5 flare. The more powerful M and X class flares are often associated with a variety of effects on the near-Earth space environment.

It came off as an M2 so not the largest but still pretty spectacular.

www.swpc.noaa.gov...

Haven't figured out the direction yet tho. If anyone knows?

Yep, all indications are that is is just an M2.

Who is going around saying this is possibly the biggest ever? seriously if it was the biggest ever flare. We are in serious SERIOUS trouble.

But it is an M2, so you still have to go to work tomorrow OK?
