We are in a solar maximum, due to run out in 2013, it's a neat 12 year cycle. Being at a period of extreme solar activity, anything can happen. Like stated earlier, we have a few days warning, but otherwise helpless, aside of the earth's magnetic field, which usually deflects the harmful solar radiation.

I like threads like these, when extreme points of view come together. I don't look at it as fear mongering, simply putting out useful information. Thanks OP. SnF. (The title didn't say PROOF of a cme. It simply said could.)

Those two start to came from combined spots and this is not good

Just repling to the above statement (and not your original post) C.1 and C2.5 solar flares are tiny, we get them everyday all the time with minimal effects. I promise. One we get up into the upper M class and X class with a CME directed blow is when there are problems
Keep in mind, the Nov. 8th Flare grazed us at a M.1 and it was cool and shook the earth, and Norway got the small show. The Carrington Effect was an X45. That was serious.

Here's a striking image of the filament from today.

Do you think that this will burst ugly CME?

The problem is not the magnitude but the thing that they are combining!

The only thing that human beings cannot predict and control is the Sun!!


Or earthquakes....or volcano's....or weather....or wives

Sorry,or what they are thinking to be in control of!!They'r stupidity!!



it didn't happen yet, so it's just pure fear mongering.
if it'll happen, we'll still have few days to prepare - and to call confusing their/they're and your/you're a stupidity. tip: this is THEIR fault. THEY'RE (they are) stupid. seriously, english isn't my native language, but every single time i see something like this, i wonder if a person who wrote such thing, is 10yo kid, never read any book, or both.

There has been a couple a big filament eruptions the last days.
Another big filament on the south.
sdodata.oma.be...
This was the biggest eruption, from previous days, until now, recorded on the 9th.
It also produced a solar tsunami.

These were pointed at earth and could produce minor geomagnetic storms.
If this bigger one will erupt, no one can tell what it will do as the article stated.

But the end of the electronic age.. i doubt that. Not that i mind if it happens...

What effects would elenin and yu55 have on solar activity?just wondering...

One minor thing to consider along with the images is the fact that we, as humans, recently gained the ability to see this kind of detail and near constant coverage of the Sun. It's possible things like this come and go more frequently than any of us would be comfortable knowing, and simply didn't have GOES up there to show us from two directions and in High Def.

It could be short term Geomagnetic doom we see...or just another storm we haven't seen enough of yet to know better. I guess we'll know as we get years and decades of close in and highly detailed observation to go by.

I hope this does turn out to be a footnote to a fascinating chapter of solar activity and not a short term doomsday to our electrical generating system. It isn't the wires and transformers we'd lose and be in the dark for months...It's the turbines and equipment at the actual power plants themselves. They don't stock spares to the big stuff, and 1859 seems to imply the air itself carrier enough charge to put the whammy on solid state systems of today. We'll see...

I don't think that anything will influence our sun except big impact comets or different fields antimatter,ionic,proton,plasma,black holes,gravimetric,antigravimetric...so on!!

So when is this thing supposed to be facing the earth? A pretty important question, wouldn't you all agree?

Now that bit is just a bunch of garbage, and you say you are usually right? All the sciency sounding words you think you are using (in context?) isn’t going to hide the fact comets are no larger than a 50 km diameter and have zero effect on the sun.

Antigravimetric is a sci fi Star Trek term.

Let's pray that nothing will happen but I am usually right!


As this thread obviously proves.

I think the fact that he is predicting an electronic apocolypse tells us the level of understanding here, just how right can one normally be when they think a CME will wipe out every electronic device there is. Maybe if people took a bit of time to find out what the actual effects of solar activity are on the ground then we wouldn't get so much misplaced worry.
Granted a decent blow could take out unprepared power grids and cause some temporary interferance but your ipad wont fry in your hands.
