Solar activity in general has an influence on the orbital decay rates of satellites. That's not a coincidence.
UARS came down a bit sooner than expected because of solar activity earlier this month. That activity caused the outer atmosphere to expand a bit more than expected.

I didn't say geomagnetic activity doesn't cause power outages. I said it didn't cause the ones before the geomagnetic storm started.

Since most of the outages occurred many hours before the geomagnetic storm started, yes. Those are unrelated.

Since geomagnetic activity in North America has been light, yes. Those are unrelated.

Power interruptions in Europe (and the UK) since the storming began may, or may not, be attributable to it.

Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
-Mark Twain
Is this what you are doing,

why do you always support the offical story isnt it possible that all the info we are getting is distorted as not to scare the public.

I got a message saying about 2 -3 days ago that the sunspot in question let of two massive CME's but were not facing Earth could this not be mis info on their part maybe the CME was Earth bound I dont trust all of what our goverment's say.

I trust your opinion most of the time just like I do our goverment agencys but cannot trust it all the time, I feel you are correct in pouring water on the so called fire as it is more than probable that nothing will come of any CME or sun activity in our lifetime but I do not rule it out, anyway the threat is from mankind at the moment with all the current events worldwide I think we should all look closer to home.

This fear-mongering is turning ATS into a laughing stock comparable to the National Enquirer!

Hmmm....I don't think I've ever been to their website...gonna go check out their forums and comment boards...I could use a good laugh...

I'm not the topic.
But I don't always support the "official story". I support logic and reason. I support doing some real research.

Just in case this guy is right we should make all our predictions now so the Net is revived one-hundred years from now future generations can see how brillant we were. 1) Donavan McNab will never win a Super Bowl. , 2) Tom Cruise was not gay, just confused.3) Jesse Ventura shot JFK with a HAARP powered bullet, supplied to him by the NWO. 4) The Pole Shift happened and no one noticed, it is still cold at eather end, and Cleveland still sucks.5) President Obama was in fact born an Alein, he is son of Spock. Glad I got that in before the grid goes down. Too the bunker, too the bunker.

I reside in oregon and damn if those winds arent strong.....Blew the rolling blinds off my apt. But I guess elenin cause my blinds to fall off. Im kinda annoyed at everything being to blame on a comet/asteroid/ fly by planet/ whatever they are calling it these days.

He usually is a proponent of the official story, but in this case he didn't say anything that wasn't true.

Yes and I respect you for it I like the fact that you bring reason here as I myself certinly will not on the level that you do or can as im a self confessed sufferer of an over active imagination, I see the logic in all your posts ive read and wish there were more like you on ATS sorry if ive caused offence but I couldnt resist the quote I love Mark Twain and that quote just suits me better lol
peace and I look forward to seeing more posts from you.

While we lay blame on elenin::::
I could name a few things the darn thing isn't doing.....paying my bills(but its the cause for no jobs! LOL), caring for my car(but its the cause for the price of gas), putting food on the table(this ones a double blade cuz its causeing crop failure and the grocery stores to charge close to 2.00 for a normally .50 box of mac n cheese). Maybe it is maybe it isn't but its really stupid to think that its causing the world to end....not to mention if the government were hiding the fact the it was going to do mass distruction you think they would keep us cuz you think obama wants to go back to HIS GRASSROOTS. highly doubt it.

Below is a link to real time magnetosphere conditions, to include plasma temperature, pressure, etc. We're currently getting SLAMMED! I would recommend that everyone unplug any sensitive or expensive electronics from your power source ASAP to minimize EMP damage. Keep an eye on this folks. I think they're forecasting tomorrow to be worse.

My mum once commented that she noted that freaky weather or natural disasters often were related to space launches. To quote one of Phage`s reference re holes in the ionosphere:

Science 31 January 1975:
Vol. 187 no. 4174 pp. 343-346
DOI: 10.1126/science.187.4174.343

Abstract

A dramatic ionospheric phenomenon, unique in magnitude and in spatial and temporal extent, occurred along the Atlantic Coast of North America after the launch of the NASA Skylab Workshop on 14 May 1973.

The effect was a large and rapid decrease in the total number of ionospheric electrons within a distance of 1000 kilometers of the burning engines of the Saturn V launch vehicle. The observations are interpreted in terms of exceptionally enhanced chemical loss rates due to the molecular hydrogen and water vapor contained in the Saturn second-stage exhaust plume.

Perhaps the power problems are related to the UARS re-entering the ionosphere?
