Actually a refrigerator magnet is quite a bit stronger than the magnetic field of the Earth, which in turn is about 1,000 times stronger than the magnetic field of the Sun by the time it gets to Earth.
The IMF is a weak field, varying in strength near the Earth from 1 to 37 nT, with an average value of ~6 nT.
(Are we talking about different things here? You are saying the sun's field near the earth and SW are saying the sun's field)
Love it. Fairy snuff. IS it legal? When a fairy sneezes, do they zoom backwards.
Oh thank you for that information.
We, the collective, thank you for your thanks. Although nominally this is 'my' thread I can hardly call it that as many make excellent contributions.
Have to say I am a little surprised by that one as I had not earmarked it for a downgrade. Must be slipping!

I asked a friend in France if all these quakes, east of fuk, in the same area, could have anything to do with the runaway cores? I know.... it's a stretch because how could they be so far down? It's just the coincidence of the steady pounding in one area and the proximity to fukushima that bug me. Sort of like what's happening in Louisiana and the gulf blow-out. Anyway, here is what he sent me.
Looks like he thinks it's magma behind the swarm.
