While i am no expert on satellites or indeed the Sun i came across this story and thought it worth putting it out here for some clarification from those more in the know so to speak.Did a ATS search and came up with nothing. Have included a video of this supposedly sun facing satellites break down caused by a mass coronal hole in the SUN.Not saying this is happened but just need some feed back,cheers in advance.

A coronal hole won't knock out satellites, especially ones designed to observe such things...

Having said that, I can't seem to get the SOHO, SDO or STEREO sites to load.

And what is a "red alert" supposed to mean anyway????

yeah someone else just posed this in the vid replys


Just checked SOHO.NASA, Helioviewer, Goddard, and SDO sites. They are all offline, Goddard says they are operating under a CODE RED, non-essential employees are not to report to work until further notice

I wonder whats happened.

I just tried a number of sites - solarimg.org... www.solarham.net... sdo.gsfc.nasa.gov... sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov... etc. Photos won't load on non ".gov" sites.

The ".gov" sites won't load at all.
Hmm.

It's nothing to do with the satelites being down. The servers, based in Maryland are down due to the power outage from the storms

wow? seriously?

This is the website mentioned in the video:
solarimg.org... Have no idea how reliable is it.

Seems serious,here is a comment from a youtube viewer:

I'll watch this thread.

Edit: nevermind, someone already post it.

Spaceweather.com says:


CHANCE OF MAGNETIC STORMS: NOAA forecasters estimate a 40% chance of polar geomagnetic storms today in response to a high-speed solar wind stream blowing around Earth. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras.

Can't seem to find any info on the link you provided or on Solar Ham at the moment. I'll keep looking but can't confirm.
Hmm Soho seems to be down atm. Now Solar Ham has images missing too. Anyone else got any info on this?

From twitter...


Earth Observatory ‏@NASA_EO
The EO website is not in service due to the extensive power outages in the Maryland/DC area. We'll be back when the power returns!



Earth Observatory ‏@NASA_EO
@SolarWatch Yep, basically any website housed at NASA GSFC.

That's interesting... as someone already mentioned it could be that the servers are down, I actually thought the same thing. However, nasa.gov seems to work fine and all those links your provided are sub-domains of nasa.gov. I'm pretty sure that the main nasa.gov domain wouldn't work if it was because of downed servers, the sub-domains typically operate on the same server.

Ok... perhaps the sub-domains are hosted on different servers. It would certainly explain what we are seeing here.

There is a storm called a derecho hitting the east coast. Power is down for millions. Nothing to do with the sun...except the sun does cause weather along with other factors.

You would need a Massive Solar Flare to shut down most American Made Satellites as they are EMP as well as GAMA Ray...X-RAY...you name it...shielded. Now if you were talking about a giant Coronal Mass Ejection....well then...we would ALL BE SCREWED! Split Infinity
