Dates 1.19.12 to 1.23.12

Article: INCOMING CME: Active sunspot 1401 erupted yesterday, Jan. 19th around 16:30 UT, producing an M3-class solar flare and a full-halo coronal mass ejection (CME). The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory recorded the cloud expanding almost directly toward Earth. Analysts at the Goddard Space Weather Lab say strong geomagnetic storms are possible when the cloud arrives this weekend. Their animated forecast track predicts an impact on Jan. 21st at 22:30 UT (+/- 7 hrs). Aurora alerts: text, voice.The cloud is also heading for Mars, due to hit the Red Planet on Jan. 24th. NASA's Curiosity rover, en route to Mars now, is equipped to study solar storms and might be able to detect a change in the energetic particle environment when the CME passes by.

Enjoy and be safe.

There was already another M earlier the week too, and a few C-class flares tossed about so I would expect some harsher conditions in the next 48 hours for sure. There's also another nasty set of spots coming around in a few days time. Get used to it as we go into 2013.

I have actually lost count of how many end-of-the-world solar flares we have had since last August.

This is just another ordinary solar flare that will give a few problems with communications. Nothing major.

Haha yeah, I don't believe there are end of the world solar flares. That would have to be a super huge flare to even cause such damage. It will just be another weekend Verizon 4G goes down.... ^_^

Its possible a large one could kill all electric devices on eartg but its got to be even bigger than the one reported in the 1800s

2012 and 2013 will have more CME's than 2011, and 2013, is supposedly the peak year. A big one may be coming, but the earth is already changing and reacting, and the sun drives nearly all of this. It doesnt just take big ones, is a constant influx of more energy going on.

I haven't. Zero. How do you know? See me typing?

They're not "nasty", they're beautiful.
Northern lights is all we get from C or M class flares, and the milder X class even. I'm on satellite internet and TV, and have never had a problem from solar flares.

The biggest problem is that it's too cold this time of year to go out and watch them.

Seeing the northern lights is on my bucket list. I'd really like to see them but these solar flares that trigger the lights are few and far between AND it seems like it's always cloudy the few times they actually do show up. Hope it's clear this time ..

The Earth is reacting? How is the Earth reacting? The amount of energy that reaches the Earth due to a solar flare or CME is what relative to the base line?

May seem off topic and yes it is but i would like to hear from or add to this thread those of you that have headaches over the weekend. I have noticed that when there is an earth directed cme most people i talk to, including myself get headaches.

To test this idea you need to have people write down when they get headaches. Then compare that to events you are interested in. Run a correlation to see if the two are related.

Do you suggest a thread? Or how would i do it? I am convinced that cme's that are earth directed cause headaches and also possibly connected to epileptic seizures. Now i am throwing it out there and i would like so much for you all to prove me wrong here.
So,
Over the weekend when the cme is supposed to interact with earth, tell me, or add to this thread those of you that have had headaches or know someone who has suffered an epileptic fit. I am serious here. Not deadly but i have a good reason to believe that it is connected.

What do you think stereologist, new thread?

No one needs to prove you wrong. You need to substantiate your claims. For all we know you simply are remembering the successes and forgetting the failures. That is why testing needs to be done.

I seriously doubt that earth directed CMEs can be detected easily on Earth let alone by the brain.

You might have convinced yourself. People convince themselves of all sorts of mistaken ideas. You need to test the idea. If it turned out to be correct you could get published in a prestigious journal.

This is not the way to run the test. You need to find subjects that are normal. You also need to find subjects that do not check to see if there are CMEs headed our way. In fact, it is best if the subjects do not know the purpose of the experiment. Simply have people report their headaches.

and how am i supposed to do that? I am just suggesting that ppl that have a sudden bout of headaches etc to maybe report them to enable us to determine a possible factor.

The solar flare in question was of a very large duration. Go to this site and it will tell you all you need to know.

Solarham.com A site for ham radio operators

This isn't a gloom and doom site. The sun and solar flares affect ham radios. A very cool site if you're interested in this stuff

The problem is that if they know there is a CME coming or if they are told one is coming and it is not then they might get a headache due to fear or something other than the CME itself. The amount of energy experienced at the surface due to a CME is so small as to be unmeasurable let alone detected by a brain.

No ones claiming any end of world theme here. Just makeing folks aware of a solar flare. Where in the OP did you make this wrong interpretation ?
Solar flares will muck up electronics in some cases. You know that right? Ok just so were all on the same page. Carry on soldier.

Well now not so fast Sterologist this person may have something and it was what you wrote above that made me think there may be something here. This is an electrically charged ejection. The brain is an electrically operated organ. The water in our bodies reacts to the gravitational pull of the moon perhaps its plausable that our brains will react to CMEs. I know that people can be sensitive to electromagnetic fields. Bad wiring in old houses is a major contributor to peoples feeling of discomfort and unease. I will pay attention to how I am feeling this weekend. Right now its Sat afternoon and its raining and I am working so my feelings arent great but no headache or any maladies. I will note if folks seems off or complain of headaches this weekend.
