nothing but auroras and downed communication in China, nothing to worry about until 6-8 months from now and on, when we hit the solar maximum and start the have some X1's leveed our way..

A very slight angle of the earth's axis causes such a change in our seasons... Its frightening to think about what happens when the sun starts shooting at us as well.

Just to clarify, briefly- the 'class' of the flare (C,M,X) does not have much to do with the size of the coronal mass ejection (CME-wiki). The coronal mass ejection is the important part- this is what causes the auroras and causes geomagnetic disruption.

I highly doubt this is going to be a very significant event, but it is one of the larger earth-directed CMEs that I have seen, and many factors will dictate the level and results of the impact. That being said, this is the same phenomena that took out telegraphs and shocked operators around the world in 1859 (Carrington Event).

As you should be anyhow, if you're here on ATS, it is wise to be prepared for power outages, "just in case". Again, I'm not trying to rile up interest and fear, but this is the kind of event that could really sneak up on us.

Most likely not. But no one really knows what that big ole' explosion in the middle of the solar system has in store. At most this will probably just cause auroras and maybe some power outages.

What would happen to airplanes and air traffic if an event equivalent to a Carrington event occurred?

I also second this inquiry. Can some of the more scientifically capable ATSers help us out here?

If we had any kind of early warning system (which I'm sure we do) I'm sure they would keep the planes down...

I wouldn't worry too much, we have a Solar maximum every 11 years. The risk to us has only increased due to our great dependence on electricity and communications satellites.

It's only an M class, not really much to worry about yet thought. May cause a quake, but the moon is only a quarter. Good find. I check this site a few times a day. Keep up the good work.

yea I second that if there was a big enough threat all flights would be grounded
