Major X5.4 Solar Flare + X1.3 Flare The second strongest solar flare of Cycle 24 in terms of X-Ray Flux, just peaked around Active Sunspot 1429. This major event measured X5.4 at 00:24 UTC and triggered a strong R3 Level Radio Blackout. This was followed shortly thereafter by an X1.3 event at 01:14 UTC. A coronal mass ejection will likely result and due to the sunspots more geoeffective position, there will be a chance for some sort of impact.

We can have another 11 years if we understand,but very hard to say as long as the acceptance of some things is impossible,though I try.

As the words they have spoken before were real,I hope it's all about humor as it is not.

I suspect scientists are allowed a sense of humour too.
The high energy proton levels continue to rise following the strong solar flare from very early this morning.
A moderate S2 Level Radiation Storm is in progress andcontinues to rise. Strong S3 Level Radiation Storm levels are imminent.
The increase in proton levels are a direct result of the major solar flare activity from early Wednesday morning around Sunspot 1429.
