Where does one go to see the recorded history of big flares? I saw the aurora in the 70's on my roof top in Milwaukee one night way back. It was big! You could see the "eye" where I think, the particles are entering the north pole. Only green colors, no others. It was spectacular!

I must have seen the same event I was in Aurora Il appropriately enough. It was the summer of 73, it was icredible we stayed out in the backyard all night. A memorable evening!

Sorry this is not relating to the flares, but could a moderator find out why it says I have 0 flags next to my name. It has been like that for a while. Just wondering, no big deal...


Have you started a thread yet?
You only get "flags" for starting a thread....the better the thread...the more flags you'll get


Back on topic.....my pc isn't frazzled.....yet!!

4hrs 20mins to go......apparently.

The N0AA site says my area is a 7 on the KP index thing. What does that mean?

NOAA has a LOT of stuff. Perhaps you could post the exact link please. Thank you.

As far as I know, the KP index is mostly used to determine if you might get a chance to see the aurora. Some other indexs can convery your map (geographical) latitude to geomagnetic latitude. I think the KP index uses the geomagnetic latitude.

8 March is supposed to aurora down to 50 geomagnetic latitude.

From the legend linked above, Kp=7 means:


Power systems: voltage corrections may be required, false alarms triggered on some protection devices.

Spacecraft operations: surface charging may occur on satellite components, drag may increase on low-Earth-orbit satellites, and corrections may be needed for orientation problems.

Other systems: intermittent satellite navigation and low-frequency radio navigation problems may occur, HF radio may be intermittent, and aurora has been seen as low as Illinois and Oregon (typically 50° geomagnetic lat.)**.

Chances of some consequence and power failures, planes being affected, etc, reported in the media.


A strong solar storm is expected to hit Earth shortly, and experts warn it could disrupt power grids, satellite navigations systems and plane routes.

The storm - the largest in five years - will unleash a torrent of charged particles between 06:00 GMT and 10:00 GMT, US weather specialists say.

They say it was triggered by a pair of massive solar flares earlier this week.


I'm wondering what the Pacific Time range will be.

So estimated time this thing is supposed to hit?? Pacific standard time please

0600UT/GMT is 3 hours and 38 minutes from now.

Hope that helps.

I read also that air traffic is being re-routed in the Northernmost areas.

Overcast skies here.


That's a major bummer, was hoping to see lights tonight...now it's not going to matter.

Northernmost where?

Europe?

U.S.?

Australia?

Oops, ran out of characters, but there might be other areas...


Really, what's up, Doc?

I dont think so, they all travel at light speed(particles ) more or less no???

My satellite t.v. has been going off (searching for signal) 3 times in the past 15 minutes. It hasn't done this, even on cloudy days. Do you think it is related? I live in the Eastern U.S.
Maybe it's hitting early?

Northernmost. I presume that's everything north of their 50 degrees latitude (geomagnetic). If I remember where I read that, I'll come back and edit this post with a link.

Oz (Australia) isn't exactly Northern


Okay, this isn't where I saw it earlier ... but, it's the same thing.


has already forced some airlines to change their routes around the polar regions.

This one says "polar regions", not "Northernmost". I think this Canadian news is talking about Canada and Europe though. Check elsewhere for news on the Southern Pole.

On www.swpc.noaa.gov... my area is a 7 on the KP index.

My satellite t.v. won't stay up at all now.... keeps going off. I live in Tennessee. Do you think the flares are responsible? Never had this happen before, even on really cloudy days.

I am in SE Texas and our satellite TV has froze a couple of times before going out and rebooting on its own.
