NOAA's Space Weather Prediction Center -- the nation's official source of warnings and alerts about space weather and its impacts on Earth, confirms impacts have arrived on Earth, jolting the planet's magnetic field and triggering strong "geomagnetic storming" in some regions.

3-day Solar-Geophysical Forecast issued Sep 27 22:00 UTC

Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be low, with a chance for M-class during the period (28-30 September). There will also be a chance for an X-class flare.

Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels on day one (28 September). Quiet levels are expected on days two and three (29-30 September).

Doesn't sound so bad.

My god damn pants are now brown thank you very much.

On the same note i heard your physics guy whatshisname on RT news the other day talking about this taboo subject, altho he said the main ones was gonna be the big year 2012.

Sorry i cant remember his name, maiko something or other, maybe, my memory is really [snipped] now.

For crying out loud.
A K index of 5 is not the same as a G5.
It'a G1 level storm. It's nothing.

I wish people with absolutely no understanding of this information would stop starting threads about doom and gloom based on numbers they can't even comprehend.

On the chance that this might be something, I called Katy Human at NOAA. The storm is already past us.

Not a doomsday in sight.

NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center – the nation’s official source of warnings and alerts about space weather and its impacts on Earth – issued a warning for a strong, G3 geomagnetic storm on Earth resulting from a significant explosion from the sun’s corona Saturday morning. G-scale solar storms range from G1 (minor) to G5 (extreme). S OURCE


Sorry to step on your toes, but it was a G3 (according to the story linked under the video.) Still, like I said, it's passed and we're all alive and our electronics are working. So yeah, it was nothing.

Yes. I know it was a G3 when the estimated Kp index reached 8 (though NOAA placed it at G2 because the Boulder K index didn't get that high). That was two days ago.

The OP is talking about a K index of 5 which occurred earlier today, much earlier.

Look at the Kp reading -



The G-scale comparison chart may be found HERE

K8 is G4, K5 is G1

Earlier today.
And not a G5.
No "Damage Earth Any Moment". Your thread is a pathetic hoax.

G5? Who worries about a G5? It's the G20's that worry me! Don't trust those bastard's!

Interesting and now one year later almost to the date we get the same warning from NASA? I awkoe in the middle of the night to hear news about a G3 geomagnetic storm slated to hit earth within 72 hours, now I admit I was asleep and did not catch any real details but this is kind of strange as ATS is usually on top of these things and this was the closest related thread I could find on the subject.

So, G3 storm, could cause widespread power failure and space station is getting ready to go into the safe room...

Any other news about this storm?

Phage the one right now one year later is a G3, is this doom and gloom? Should we make plans? Draw water get out the faraday cages, anything? Nothing? Best case and worst case scenario on a G3?

And here I thought we were in a solar minimum period. I wish theyd get their doom straightened out.
Solar doom, solar minimum, solar flares, periods of inactivity, scorched earth, new ice age.. Im so confused.

The G3 storming ended 12 or 15 hours ago.
You ok?

No. We are approaching Solar Maximum.
