Oh dear Lord please don't kill my A/C!

We are getting hit by three CMEs at the same time right now aren't we?

Interesting and what is the other bright object in the image..?

I don't know much about it


It's Venus.
Thank you for your question.

CMEs can cause very real problems but it takes a very powerful one to do so. This is not one of those. This one may cause some problems with satellite communications and some nice aurora in northern Europe.

Thank you im sorry I ment the black line to the right of the SUN?

No, it's the arm on the camera that holds the disk to block out the Sun.

ahhh good to know then. What size is this one considered and what size would you need to expect a major problem. I'm not well versed in this subject so it would be good to know for future reference.

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

Why is this important do you feel?


It's important to Spaceweather.com. Here is a their quote.
"CME IMPACT--NOW: NASA's ACE spacecraft, which measures the speed of the solar wind just upstream of Earth, indicates that a CME impact on our planet may be in progress. Stay tuned for updates.

STRONG SOLAR ACTIVITY: On August 4th, active sunspot 1261 unleashed a strong solar flare, the third in as many days. The blast, which registered M9.3 on the Richter Scale of Flares, hurled a bright coronal mass ejection (CME) almost directly toward Earth. Click on the image to view a movie of the expanding cloud recorded by the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory:"
Thank you for your question.

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.



This page stereo-ssc.nascom.nasa.gov...
allows you to view various images. However, STEREO Behind HI2, is not working

The magnetometers are reacting. Definite geomagnetic storming.

Yeah I am seeing all the action now...thank you for the clarification in regards to the graphs and data. Time will tell if this type of flare does anything to the Earth....

Will keep posted to the data and this thread.....also watching the EQ's. ;-)

should I be watching this thread instead of this thread?
just wondering..

YES they are..... This is some awesome stuff!

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.


Yup! Everything is fine,move along.


Here is the site with all the descriptions of warnings and what each one means.

3 CME's are hitting over the next couple of days... which will cause some dramatic magnetosphere disturbances.

These particular CME's are not strong enough to cause a "Carrington Event"... it would take X class flares for that.

Although these are certainly nothing to panic about, it does, however, make for some interesting observations that may or may not take place these next few days or so. Hypotheses abound during times like this, and it's fascinating to watch these get put to the test with regards to tectonic plate disturbances resulting in possible volcanic activity and/or earthquakes, and whether or not magnetosphere disturbances really do play a role in tectonics and to what degree they do.

At the very least, we should see some great aurora light shows going on over our heads.

Here's some observations and speculations made by Solar Watcher.net (an Aussie fellow with a great "no fearmongering approach" for solar enthusiasts):

I believe it has something to do with the processing of the raw data received from the satellite. The same sort of occurence happend with that thread about the tail on venus. I believe that phage was the one that had the explanation if im not mistaken. It overcompensates for the brightness or something along those lines and you end up with a shadow effect.

well, density just skyrocketed.

I haven't felt anything either


But, are WE experiencing and displaying Normalcy Bias?? your post is radiating it..

Not exactly skyrocketed.
www.swpc.noaa.gov...

A proton density of 25-30 is not really a big deal but combined with the fairly high speed (which seems to be dropping) it does keep the pressure up.

You should check this magnetospheric monitor sight again. Looks like it just overloaded some density monitoring equipment. So far my satellite reception is normal.
