Before this year is out a MCE will pulsate from 60% of the suns surface. Transformers around the world will blow, it takes world governments too long to shut off the power grids, a network which is outdated and already faulty.
Earth will take a direct hit. You'll be told not to go outside on the day we get bombarded. 70% of satellites will be fried.

So, i know this might not be anything. But I feel the need to ask. With the FBI saying there will be a black out for most internet users. Because of some virus. Could that be a way for them if we got hit by the right solar flare to knock out the internet. For them to say it was a virus and not a solar flare?
I know by saying this , they would have known the sun would be shooting flares by this time months in advance. But how do we know they dont have tech predicting this?

Take my word for it
The Sun regularly goes through pole shifts every 11 years, the 12th year being the time it takes for the sun to 'calm' down after the switch. History has told us that every 250 years the pole shift is over-dramatic and the MCE's produced during the solar dis-quiet are tremendous. Why do people not talk about this all the time? Why is it not in the fore-front of our news media?
I won't get into those conspiracies, too bad, and as the evidence is completely destroyed and non-existent all you can do is take my word for it (it bums me out too) but the STEREO telescope's (most people think it's just one.... ) run a loop for the mass public's faux entertainment.
People don't know what to look for = easy to get away with things. Our night sky's have been radially charged serveral nights this years so far. People don't notice the night sky glowing unless they can see bright neon XXX lights or McDonalds arch's.

I think that is a very interesting idea. Do you have any ideas about what the motive would be for that sort of deception? How would it benefit them?
According to analysts at the Goddard Space Weather Lab, who prepared the forecast, the cloud will reach Earth on July 7th around 0600 UT. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras on that date.
According to data supplied by the NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory, it would seem that AR1515 spans the length of 15 Earths in a row, or 118,681 miles (191,000 kilometers). Though yesterday's event was strong, it did not exceed the intensity of March's X5.4-class solar flare.

15 earths in a row sure sounds a lot larger than the figure in both miles and kilometers. I was always lead to believe the earth was a pretty expansive place and for a sunspot compared to 15 times the earth only measuring in the 100s, of thousands of kilometers just sounds.... well ... dinky...
