ahhhhhhhhhhh. the chaos has begun!!!


New sunspot group unleashes barrage of huge solar flares as astronomers predict two years of storms which could cause chaos on Earth

'X-class' flare is most powerful kind of solar flare
Two years of violent solar storms predicted

This type of satellites will be first to be affected if.

The satellite is in day light




ALTITUDE [km]: 20187.62

Fox is also saying it could could lead to serious issues on Earth. Surpose its better than reporting on the Don King rigged elections.

For some perspective:




In modern times, the largest solar flare measured with instruments occurred on November 4, 2003. This event saturated the GOES detectors, and because of this its classification is only approximate. Initially, extrapolating the GOES curve, it was pegged at X28.[12] Later analysis of the ionospheric effects suggested increasing this estimate to X45.[13] This event produced the first clear evidence of a new spectral component above 100 GHz.[14] Other large solar flares also occurred on April 2, 2001 (X20),[15] October 28, 2003 (X17.2 & X10),[16] September 7, 2005 (X17),[17] February 17, 2011 (X2).[18][19][20] and August 10, 2011 (X6.9).[21] In 1989, during solar cycle 22 two large flares occurred on March 6 (X15) (see: March 1989 geomagnetic storm) and August 16 (X20) causing disruptions in electric grids and computer systems
Solar Flare History

So while an X4-5 can be thought of as "big", we've had bigger. I'm sure the direction of the wave is just as relevant as the energy it contains, so if these larger ones were off a bit more than this one, it could indeed be thought as a "big" one.




so here i go again
why dont we use these flares/cmes
to power our grids if they happen this
much
im sure someone will come up with
another not very good reason why
they/we dont
this is free energy isnt it?

I don't want to alarm anyone, but a sudden wind has picked up here; and it smells like Popeyes. There isn't any Popeye's around here!

Oh and it went from 98% clear to 100% cloudy.


Edit: And unless I'm reading this wrong -- Protons just spiked up a bit.

Oh, I'm in the blackout tracker zone. Hasn't black out yet and I hope it doesn't. I'll be jonzing for the internet.

Yes there was a small rise in protons, an indication the cme will hit soon. www.swpc.noaa.gov...

There is also another flare in progress, just waiting some minutes to see how high it will go

I was hoping for this but...


Geomagnetic Storm Watch / Full-Halo CME Incoming! The new WSA-Enlil Solar Wind Prediction is calling for a direct CME impact during the early hours of Thursday March 8th.

The expected time of arrival is between 0600-1000 UTC. This means sometime after 2am EST, we can expect the first signs of the incoming CME Plasma cloud. The solar wind is predicted to increase to over 800 km/s and Strong Geomagnetic Storming will be possible soon thereafter.

The Solar Wind Speed data from ACE is still unavailable, however as of 7:20 UTC ,

The flare hit the Earh, and my world ended and collapsed as the radio in my car went a bit fuzzy, I didn't know what to do, there was no help from the world Governments, no bailouts, no military aid in their concentration , Erm I mean their bases, nothing at all.
I had to fend for myself and change channels by leaning over and pressing a button.
Oh the calamity, the humanity, the waste of 5 seconds of distorted voices on the airwaves.
Even my wife was shocked at the severity of it as no planes fell from the sky, no people were running about screaming , and no zombies appeared to mutate from the people we passed on the streets.

if thats true look at that speed!



the speed and density must have been a software error or something.
data from ACE doesnt show much change.
If that is true,dam,we aer in for a big one
