It is clear that there were two (2) separate events today. Look at the two (2) different Proton spikes:

The second has not been put into this model:

I find it amusing that very quickly people have entered an informative thread with such a combative attitude.
FACT 1- We do NOT understand everything about the sun, our planet, or even our own bodies.
FACT 2- Only humans are so arrogant to believe otherwise.
I have been reading a myriad of recently published papers on this subject, and while none a conclusive as of yet, all contain information and data of which we were previously unaware. This is the process of discovery, and it is how all science and knowledge progresses.

I eagerly await more data on this flare; the intensity is not what I am interested in, but the orientation of the flare to Earth.

Ever heard of a Y-class flare?



On April 2nd, 2001, the most violent solar flare in recorded history short forth from the sun at an x+ level causing scientists to create a new measurement- the Y class!


and yes this was already posted 1hour before

The CME associated with the X2.2 in February was Earth directed. It was just very mild.

False.
The X classification is open ended. There is no Y class and there is no need for it.

Haha, I was always wondering what that line above X class was on the goes X-ray flux. guess you learn something new everyday.

Why not just call a monster flare a XXX flare, that way we can be sure we're f**ked when we see it!

Some facts. Some not facts. It's not a very good source. Take it off your bookmarks list.

Here's facts.

You mean we hope their is no need for it
. I didn't think their was a Y class, and I hope to god we never have to invent one cause we would be writing it on paper not a computer.

You have the cause and effect reversed.
The theory is that stresses in the Earth produce disturbances in the ionosphere. There is nothing in there about solar activity causing earthquakes.


Was not Haarp suppose to be used for some work inside the ionosphere? It reminds me of this when you say a comment mentioning this part of our earth.

The primary purpose of HAARP is to study the ionosphere.

Isn't the classification there to make it easier?
A X-2 could be a M-12 or a C-22?

New info from spaceweather




Earth-orbiting satellites have detected an X2-class solar flare from sunspot 1283. The explosion, which occured at 2220 UT on Sept. 6th, appears to have hurled a CME toward Earth. This is the second time today that sunspot 1283 has propelled a plasma cloud in our general direction


Also added to thread OP

Yes. But if you're going to do that you could just say it's a flare with an x-ray flux of 2E-4 W/m2 or 20E-5 or 200E-6.
It is a matter of convenience.

Tentatively, we expect Earth's magnetic field to receive a glancing blow from a CME on Sept. 8th or 9th. Stay tuned for updates.

not such a big deal maybe. not that I don't think we could use 6 months without electricity but I don't think this is it.

Here's the M-Flare captured from the Radio Heliograph in Nobeyama Japan
NoRH 17GHz RF view

The sun wasn't in view for the X2.1 solar flare at Nobeyama Heliograph, missed by a few minutes.
