Major Edward A. Dames, U.S. Army (ret.), announced that the Current Solar Cycle could Generate some Deadly Coronal Mass Ejections--a Series of Devastating Solar Flares--"Killshots".
Preceding Events: Killer Crop Fungus, Japanese Disaster, North Korea's use of Nuclear Weapons as an Act of War, and the Final Precursor...What appears to be a Space Shuttle Vehicle being Forced Down from Orbit by a Meteor Shower--then a Series of "Killshots" Begins.
All the Soldiers look up at the Sky and see an Atmospheric Event that Frightens Them and then They All Go Home.
Unprecedented Geophysical Events Happen...Powerful Sun's X-rays...Electric Power Grids and Communication Satellites Go Down...Countries and Cities are Without Power For Many Months...
Anything Powered By Electricity Would Be Affected, Including But Not Limited To The Following Services:
Hospitals...All Telephone Systems...Computers...Financial Transactions and Electronic Transfers Within the Banking System ...Food, Water, Supplies and Gasoline Shortages Due to a Lack of Transportation...Fuel Processing By Refineries...etc.
Major Edward A. Dames, is a decorated Military Intelligence Officer, and an original member of the U.S. Army Prototype Remote Viewing Training Program. He served as the Training and Operations Officer for the Defense Intelligence Agency's Psychic Intelligence (PSIINT) Collection Unit, and currently serves as Executive Director for the Matrix Intelligence Agency, a private consulting group.
December 23, 2009: The solar system is passing through an interstellar cloud that physics says should not exist. In the Dec. 24th issue of Nature, a team of scientists reveal how NASA's Voyager spacecraft have solved the mystery.
Astronomers call the cloud we're running into now the Local Interstellar Cloud or "Local Fluff" for short. It's about 30 light years wide and contains a wispy mixture of hydrogen and helium atoms at a temperature of 6000 C. The existential mystery of the Fluff has to do with its surroundings. About 10 million years ago, a cluster of supernovas exploded nearby, creating a giant bubble of million-degree gas. The Fluff is completely surrounded by this high-pressure supernova exhaust and should be crushed or dispersed by it.

This is the largest we've had in 5 years, not a full cycle. I expect to see much worse than this by next year.
On March 7, 2012 just a few minutes after midnight UT time the active region (AR11429) unleashed two strong X-class flare.
The first, X5.4-class, showed a very bright flare, the second right after, X1-class, hurled a second coronal mass ejection into Space. Also seen can be a wave going across the Sun at approx. 1,000,000 mph - also known as a Solar Tsunami.
There are also various views of this events over a couple of hours, including some close-up views of the Sunspot 1429.

Yeah we've had much larger ones hit us. I guess in 2003 we experienced an X45 or something like that. They had to make another class of flares because of it.
"The sun's magnetic field extends all the way to the edge of the solar system," explains Opher. "Because the sun spins, its magnetic field becomes twisted and wrinkled, a bit like a ballerina's skirt. Far, far away from the sun, where the Voyagers are now, the folds of the skirt bunch up." When a magnetic field gets severely folded like this, interesting things can happen. Lines of magnetic force criss-cross, and "reconnect". (Magnetic reconnection is the same energetic process underlying solar flares.) The crowded folds of the skirt reorganize themselves, sometimes explosively, into foamy magnetic bubbles. "We never expected to find such a foam at the edge of the solar system, but there it is!" says Opher's colleague, University of Maryland physicist Jim Drake. Theories dating back to the 1950s had predicted a very different scenario: The distant magnetic field of the sun was supposed to curve around in relatively graceful arcs, eventually folding back to rejoin the sun. The actual bubbles appear to be self-contained and substantially disconnected from the broader solar magnetic field. Energetic particle sensor readings suggest that the Voyagers are occasionally dipping in and out of the foam—so there might be regions where the old ideas still hold. But there is no question that old models alone cannot explain what the Voyagers have found. Says Drake: "We are still trying to wrap our minds around the implications of these findings.
