'Space hurricane' from the sun sweeping over our planet


www.msnbc.msn.com

A wave of charged particles from an intense solar storm is raising alerts about airline flights and satellite operations — and raising the prospect of stunning auroral displays.
The storm began when a powerful solar flare erupted on the sun Monday, blasting a stream of charged particles toward our planet. This electromagnetic burst — called a coronal mass ejection, or CME — started hitting Earth somewhere around 10 a.m. ET Tuesday..

Before everyone starts debating whether or not this has anything to do with ridiculous "doom prophecies" of 2012, let me just quote the article where it says:

As powerful as it is, the storm should have no effect on daily life for most people.


This is due to the fact that the article also states:

Monday's solar flare set off an extremely fast-moving CME, but the ejected cloud of plasma and charged particles was not directly aimed at Earth and hit the planet at an angle instead. This glancing blow would likely lessen any impacts on Earth


So, 2013 is when the sun is supposed to meet its max solar irradiation point. This "solar hurricane" would suggest that the sun is, in fact, waking up and is starting to become more intense.

I, for one, am looking forward to this solar shower. Not sure if I will get to see any auroras tonight but I have had great luck in the past. I currently live in Virginia and it is quite uncommon to see them here but always a marvel when it happens. Usually, we get a vibrant and dark (although subtle) red aurora in our skies, as opposed to the famously photographed green and blue ones.

According to Wikipedia:

Red color is caused by nitrogen being bombarded with radiation from a solar flare.

Any way, I thought I'd share this with everyone in the hopes that you all may get to witness this beautiful phenomenon.

Great news we are now having a space hurricane and it hasn't even hit the 12 of 2012 yet. Why all of a sudden is the sun acting so strange even if it isn't affecting everyday earth life. Hhhhhhhhmmmm still say this is not good.

Wait... What?
They got "Space Hurricanes" now?
Crap!
Now I got two different kinds of hurricanes to worry about!

Well I'm off to plywood up the windows.

The expert sounds to me like (in short terms), "We ain't seen nothing yet, wait till 2013". No we can be worry (not panic) and get ready. I don't know what else some people here need to open their eyes.

I wonder if this is why Perth is having its worst heatwave this week in 67yrs?

Thursday Max 41c
Friday Max 39c
Saturday Max 42c
Sunday Max 40c
Monday Max 40c
Tuesday Max 40c

* For reference, 37.7c is 100 degress F

I can verify that there is some skip on the Ham
radios. Its been more so as the day progressed.
I think Delta was being concerned with communications
more than anything so decided to change routes.

solar storms happen literaly EVERY DAY
its just that they have been in greater numbers and intensity as of lately. but don't fear, the chances of a solar flare really hitting us and doing damage is the same as getting struck by lightning twice. it simply doesn't happen.
any solar flare directed towards earth is averted by the earths magnetic field anyway, blocking out most of the harmless parts. ever since that dumb nicholas cage movie people have been freaking out about solar flares, but don't worry.

lastly, from what i understand, the recent peak in solar activity is cause the sun is at a critical point in its life. Right now it's at its hottest, but it always gets the worst right before it gets better. After this shortlived phase the sun will enter it's cooling phase. If anything we should be more worried about what happens in 20-30 years as the sun begins cooling.

speculation also says that due to the sun cooling that venus might become a habitable planet some day. im still skeptical though, they also said there would be a colony on the moon by now, so we'll see.

Kind of like how they make a big deal of random weather records.

"It reached 94 here in Chicago, that's the 3rd warmest July day in 3 years."


I was on the road today and expected problems with my radio reception but it was actually better than normal, picked up stations clearly that usually are static filled.

Because I don't people to think that my reason for posting this thread was to give validity to the 2012 Doom Prophecies. It would, of course, come up eventually and I wish not that people would associate me with the fear mongers.

I see you don't mind watering that seed though =)

Where did the mass hysteria even come from? I haven't seen any evidence to support that claim. The post clearly stated that it would not effect anyone's life. At most, the airport commands would have to slightly re-adjust.

The post is about appreciating the fact that we get to witness a beautiful aurora borealis. Not create fear.

Are you kidding me? Are you 12? This is NOT a big deal. Dont let the sensationlist journalism aka title "space hurricane" scare you. ATS is the biggest fearmongering terror site i have ever seen.
