SpaceWeather.com is warning us of a CME impacting Earth as we speak. spaceweather.com...

Sun spot 1261 spewed forth an M9.3 solar flare so strong and fast that it over took a previous solar flare coming towards Earth.




Here is the video (I hope it works).




Although Solar flares have been happening for millions of years, man’s electromechanical technology hasn’t been affected until perhaps the last 50 years.
Now with satellite and internet communication being so vital, along with power grids that keep us cool, interruption of our electrical supply could be life threatening.

Well apparantly these flares are non issues as I haven't noticed any effects from it.

Why is this important do you feel?

I have to look it up to be exact, but in the 1800's, a solar storm electrified telegraph lines nationwide. This concerns me in the aspect I have a steel plate in my shoulder.
Haven't seen this link showing live magnetosphere readings.

SO how can we track it and know where it is? Can we even do that??? I guess lets and wait and see if anything happens.....it will be interesting to note.

It is striking Earth as we speak.

And is it supposed to affect anything because it looks like a normal day to me.

Maybe your website is wrong.

That object would be the planet venus. In the coming weeks, mercury will start to become visible on that particular satellite as well.

I don't want to alarm anybody now but the D-rap(D Region Absorption Predictions (D-RAP))is red.....last time it was red. Japan happened.

The speed of the solar wind continues to increase but the density seems pretty steady and not that high. The south turn produced some geomagnetic activity but its now turned north. If it stays that way it will keep things calmer.

Crazy, I just checked that site about 2 hrs ago and wow!! the convection is way up there as well as the bow shock. Intense.

So, does that mean because I have metal rods in my back, that I'm going to get sucked up into the atmosphere?


I tried to pull up the website but it's taking forever.

The black line that is visible in the soho image is a rod holding a plate inplace to block out the sun itself so we can see the chronosphere, which would be very difficult if the disk wasn't in place. Hope that helps.

We track it by analyzing data from various solar observatories, and when the sun has a solar flare, we extrapolate the direction, from the orbital period, and direction that the flare and or cme is directed, also factor in timing with everything, and there u have it.

I was having cell problems on my way back from lunch...but it's just probably the stupid phone.

I would think it would affect a much bigger area than the front seat of my car!

Well this should be proof that these big flares have little to no effect on anything.

I will archive this to debunk the next thread that thread that says these are dangerous.
