every 11 years, the Sun’s magnetic poles flip – North becomes South and vice versa. This flip happens around the peak of the sunspot cycle, when there are lots of sunspots. Earth’s magnetic poles sometimes flip, too. However, it is usually many thousands or even millions of years between flips of Earth’s field - not just 11 years!
I'm just not clear on what a polar shift on the sun actually means in a day to day reality for us here? If I wasn't on ATS to read about it, for instance, what would I see that day to know something happened at all?

So we will have solar maximum at 2012 after all (yikes)
a) The Sun will start some nasty show or
b) This is the peak of pretty weak maximum followed by weird reversal with signs of little ice age scenario and the Sun will lazy come back to spotless state. (goosebumps)edit on 22/4/2012 by PapagiorgioCZ because: (no reason given)

Your comment was very funny, and yes she's having a good day as she survived!!!
Last night I noticed the moon was in the west and normally here it's in the east, I did think it strange, and I don't know how to use stellarium either to see if my thinking was correct or not, I'm not much up on the skies at night kinda thing, but I think I can only put this down to the poles reversing, wow it's closer than we think hey, God bless us all.
Question? So do you think we'll have 3 full days of darkness as predicted? Just hope the power grid does not go down that'l be a bummer, no ats
