My 3D Sun app just yelled at me that
there was an X5 solar flare detected.

How big is an X5 ? Need our experts.
Not sure if it is Earth directed or not.

Looks like it is headed this way.


2012-03-07 01:03 Strong Solar Eruption; Earth-Directed CME Likely An R3 (Strong) Radio Blackout is now in progress, beginning about 7:00 p.m. EST today. The site of the eruption, previously active Region 1429, is now near center disk, so there's high-potential of an earth-directed CME. In addition, expect the imminent beginning of a Solar Radiation Storm.

We lost the Russian Roulette match.
Let's hope it's a nice soft damage free bullet.

Well guess what ? This is 2012. Could be the Sun is the factor many have been expecting. It's coming our way
and things could get nasty very fast. Which is one aspect that fits perfectly into most prophecies. Judgement
will come quickly and suddenly. No fear mongering when those are the facts.

I don't think it's going to affect the Earth much. Should be a nice light show up north.

Valid From: 2012 Mar 07 0300 UTC Valid To: 2012 Mar 07 2359 UTC Warning Condition: Onset Potential Impacts: An enhancement in the energetic portion of the solar radiation spectrum may indicate increased biological risk to astronauts or passengers and crew in high latitude, high altitude flights. Additionally, energetic particles may represent an increased risk to all satellite systems susceptible to single event effects. This information should be used in conjunction with the current Solar Radiation Storm conditions when assessing overall impact.



WARNING: Proton 10MeV Integral Flux above 10pfu expected Valid From: 2012 Mar 07 0030 UTC Valid To: 2012 Mar 08 0000 UTC Warning Condition: Onset Predicted NOAA Scale: S1 - Minor Potential Impacts: Radio - Minor impacts on polar HF (high frequency) radio propagation resulting in fades at lower frequencies.

Not a good day to be hanging out in orbit, though.

Thank you for adding a dose of logic to this topic and deconstructing disinformation. Though most fear mongers will probably forget about this post or try to destroy it in their own way, it was a great contribution. You sir have denied ignorance.
