the Sun as it is supposed to be by now...

last Solar Cycle 2001



The Sun now..



last time such a calmness was witnessed was way back in 1859...


"The great geomagnetic storm of 1859, for instance, occurred during a solar cycle of about the same size we’re predicting for 2013."


New Solar Cycle Prediction

dont forget we have to add the breach discovered in the magnetosphere..

Giant Breach in Earth's Magnetic Field Discovered

everything seems to add up right

Ahh ok.

Probably largest radiation storm.

Like I said it was an M flare but must have been very dense.

Can someone explain what this is please? The current LASCO C3 image shows what I assume is just a planet. What is interesting is when I watched the movie of it using LASCO C3 with the search dates starting
from 2011-06-11 to 2011-06-14.

It gets really interesting as this thing passes.

Did they give a time that this 'Major Result' was supposed to be announced. I would like to stay informed on this topic as it interests me.

Did anyone have spotty cell phone reception around (1900 EST / 1400 GMT?) I was wondering was this due to any solar activity.

Edit to add


The discussion will begin at 1 p.m. EDT (1700 GMT).

Excellent post and really puts it into perspective as to what we have all been discussing since that last solar cycle. Seems with all the doom and gloom, the CT and new age side of things it bought some time for the professionals to analyses the situation and for continuity of Government to put the last tweeks on their plan.

Some countries have made special plans for their people but the majority have not. So it is not so outlandish to consider the loss of millions or even billions of people through something as catastrophic as we have seen in the past.

That's what I thought - strange way to put it
But I suppose that's NASA for you

Very interesting image on the homepage of space.com




A photo of a sunspot taken in May 2010, with Earth shown to scale. The image has been colorized for aesthetic reasons. This image with 0.1 arcsecond resolution from the Swedish 1-m Solar Telescope represents the limit of what is currently possible in terms of spatial resolution.

Kind of puts things into perspective.

ANSWER: In short.

There was an "expert" on C2C last night who said the anouncement was this: There were 3 things that were going to be brought up by a convention presented by some American based Astronomy Organisation. Im basically paraphrasing what he was saying the best I can here so bare with me.

Basically there are a group of 12 scientists that predict how each solar cycle will behave and then they present there "average" or baseline predictions to be made public. Basically they origionally thought solar cycle 24 (this one that just started) was going to not be very strong or powerful...but now they have reevaluated their origional findings and are going to basically state this.....

1) This current solar cycle is demonstrating the same pattern as solar cycle 14 which had approximatly 60 sunspots...dont remember the date for cycle 14 but it was a hundred years ago or more but basically that cycle was what was known as the "mini ice age." So this cycle 24 is not slated to have hardly any sunspots either...they're predicting around the same sunspot count...averaged alittle more or less. So...that means bad news for the global warmers because this cycle 24 is demonstrating the same patterns as cycle 14 or the mini ice age due to the dramatic drop in sunspot activity (but not necessarily solar flare activity). So thats point number 1. Just for the record..back in 2003 with cycle 23 there were about 500 sunspots for that cycle and in 2003 there was a flare that could have completely destroyed our electrical/cercuit grid but missed us fortunately.

2) They are going to report that just because this cycle is not predicted to be a major sunspot cycle that the CME output or solar flare activity classification: C class, M class, X class solar flare scale is no longer as it has previously been in terms of how they can affect us. Meaning its the same measurment but that (im assuming its because of the drop in our protection from the magnetosphere) an good hit from a minor M-Class flare could be like a X-Class flare hitting us in back in 2003 (which missed us by the way). So point 2 is just because the flare coming toward us is "Only an M-Class flare" doesnt mean crap anymore for all you "ive seen this a million times its only a C-class flare." Changes today...

3) In dont know...its for all of you to find out beause I pulled into my driveway and shut off my radio and hit the rack beause I have to pull a few 16-18 hour workdays the next few days...so I dont know but it is kinda nice having some suspense. LOL.

Posting so I can find this thread after the announcement. Sorry that it doesn't contain any content, but this is one of those topics that I love to stay abreast of.

I am apprehensive. When Nasa or TPB decide to make a "major" announcement it is usually not a good thing. I too will be waiting with bells on... anyone who hears or sees the announcement please post for I am at work and can only check on here on my breaks/ lunch. On standby with my BOB ..

Now that´s interesting. If this is going to be it, then it will really change how we see solar flares. Thanks for sharing!

This does sound to be an interesting announcement!

I for one will be staying in tune as to what it is, and will be looking to ATS to understand it all.

I wonder if this will explain the extreme heat and earthquake activity as of late.......

So in just under an hour we should know


Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god.....

I can't wait


Good find op

Just an out there kind of thought, their not going to say we have entered cycle 25 already are they ?!

Or maybe it will be about the effects that Elenin is having on the Sun.


HAHAHAH!! Okay, I'm sorry, I just couldn't resist.

Thanks for the GMT time, maybe they're gona agree with the Russian Academy of Science and tell us to expect a Maunder Minimum.
I used the cool smiley because there isn't a cold one, brrrr.

Yeah no prob...I'm wondering what the 3rd big point is going to be. But I mean science is based on educated guess and then you proove the theory by investigating and measuring.

Heliosphere has been down 25% this last decade...more powerful CME's or solar flares = more devistating if they hit us. Im sure if more of the charged particals are getting into the earths crust...of course there is going to be an increase in quakes and volanism activity....it just takes time to "Proove" it...but the best proof is observation and were observing just fine arnt we?

Chances are that like most such major announcements by NASA, this will be of little interest except for the relevant specialist scientists.

On the other hand, maybe they've discovered a mutant start goat is going to eat the Sun?

LMAO


What you really meant to say was how Haarp is having such an impact on solar activity


I too coudn't resist
