I've seen a couple different posts on other forums but only old CME threads.

From what I've read there was a small CME a few days ago and then again yesterday. The one yesterday "amplifying" the previous one, but we haven't seen inner-atmosphere effects because all they can tell is it "pressurized" our magnetosphere.

Has anyone else been following this and maybe have more/better info than I posted?

Solar Flare for prezzz!!111
Solar Flare 2012
Srsly though i've read the sun hasn't been this active for a 1000 years, idk how they know they know that. and i don't feel like going look for the place i've read that so it defiantly could not be true. That in correlation with military trained remote viewers see a solar flare in the near future(sometime after N korea detonates a nuke). but still who knows if they're being honest and not spreading fear? who knows? We'll see lol. im rooting for solar flare though. Sure people will die and some will go hungry but this civilization needs to end before the earth is sucked dry. yeh i care more about the planet than us oversized talking monkeys

Glad you made this thread because I went on spaceweather yesterday and read their alert and was like... why isn't anyone talking about this!? Sounds pretty serious. Unfortunately, I'm no expert and was hoping someone would have more info.

I wouldn't be surprised if the "big one" hit us pretty soon... unless someone more knowledgeable about solar flares can tell me otherwise? How likely is it that the big one will hit us sometime this year or in 2013?
