Anyone notice the giant triangle at the inderside of the filament

"If the magnetic filament currently being observed by NASA becomes unstable and collapses, we could be looking at an explosion that would dwarf that of sunspot group 9182 back in 2000," said solar scientist and professor Marshall Daniels. "This would most certainly be an X class flare or one the most powerful of its kind."

Active region sunspot 1339 already let go an X class solar flare on November 3, 2011.

NASA researchers had announced that the next solar maximum would be the strongest since the historic maximum in 1859. As we approach the solar maximum in 2012, the next 12 to 24 months we'll see a historic and possibly record breaking bombardment of energy waves hitting planet earth.

Hi folks... Take a look at some interesting items:

Solar Max is upon us - With a Vengence!

Actually so far this cycle has been rather disappointing..
Though a few spots have givin up a couple minor X class flares
it has still been a minimal concern.
and so it seems the hype is fruitless..
I await the day when a flare will knock out grids,or at least take out all cell phone
sats. and watch all the phone addicts explode from their inability to cope without them..

TextGREAT FILAMENT: It's one of the biggest things in the entire solar system. A dark filament of magnetism measuring more than 700,000 km from end to end is sprawled diagonally across the face of the sun. Amateur astronomer Theo Ramakers photographed the structure yesterday from Social Circle, Georgia: "What a beautiful view," says Ramakers. "Wow--would I like to image this if/when it collapses! Can’t wait to see what tomorrow will bring." Indeed, the future could bring some action. Filaments like these have a habit of collapsing, and when they fall to the stellar surface the impact can trigger a Hyder flare. Readers with solar telescopes are encouraged to monitor developments.

Bye bye BIG filament^^


spaceweather.com...




A magnetic filament wrapping around the sun's NW limb rose up and erupted today.




The eruption hurled a cloud of plasma (a "CME") into space but not toward Earth. Because of the blast site's high-northern location on the sun, the cloud flew up and out of the plane of the solar system; no planets will be affected.

Still dangerous the filament is there and they made like a circle around the sun...weird.

so the filament is gone?

or bye bye us?

I think it's preparing for 2012,it's not that easy to erupt,but like in the Japan earthquake there are signs that tell us to be prepared,just a thought...!

The CME that could have ended electronic civilization if electronic civilization had existed occurred on 03 Sep 1859. It was seen as a bright spot in the center of the Sun by a British astronomer named Carrington. It is called the Carrington Event. He and a witness were the only ones who saw it, but within 24 hours the entire world knew, from Eskimos in Alaska to Pigmys in Africa. The charged air was picked up by the then new telegraph grid. Telegraph paper caught fire. The batteries were disconnected, and the entire system was run off of the charged air for weeks.
Because the current event was seen in all it's majestic splendor, it is unlikely that it could cause much damage. If you DO NOT see the CME and the associated flare, then you have a real problem because it is headed right for you.

You are right about that but how can we see that strong CME?

Massive Hyder Flare is on its way to Earth and should reach us Monday, November 27, 2011.

Hate to bump an old thread, but, it happened yesterday. A year off, but still.

HUMONGOUS ERUPTION: A truly gigantic explosion happened on the sun yesterday. On Nov. 16th, magnetic fields snaking halfway across the sun's southern hemisphere erupted in tandem, producing a prominence so big, it doesn't fit inside this image from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO):
