So, I just spoke to my sister who said they just told on the news that a large solar flare is coming toward Earth. It should hit in the next 2 or 3 days, knocking out communication grids. She couldn't remember the news channel it was on, and I can't find anything about it online.

Can anyone share more information about this? I want to know if I need to crawl inside my "cubby hole"!

There was an X1.4 flare earlier today which had a CME associated with it. The CME is expected to arrive on Friday/Saturday. At this time there is no reason to expect particularly intense geomagnetic activity. No reason to expect any grids of any sort to be "knocked out".

We have had flares such as this before - it might
take out some satellite receiving but that should be
all.

That makes me feel somewhat better.

Thanks, Phage

I think this is the one time I agree with you Phage. Seriously, no need to panic, will still be here Sunday and I'll still have to work.

SOHO is currently in a keyhole so data reception is spotty.


STEREO B got the CME. It looks like it's directed mostly "south" but we will be getting something.

I know it doesn't look to be particularly huge but it still looks impressive as it heads directly towards Earth.

Like is aid in the other thread about this:: I wonder what kind of effect it will have on communications and the power grid. I'll keep an eye out on this one. and no i don't think it'll be all doom and gloom, but i do expect a few problems. I'll guess we will just have to wait and see what happens.

gotta love cut and paste lol

I would so give you 1000 stars for that!!

X1.4 is not exactly unusual or scary in fact before we had all this information we must have had many of these and guess what, we are still here.

What was the Carrington event. X57 or thereabouts?. Now you are talking flares!!!

Thanks to everyone who has posted. I hope you will continue to keep us updated as it gets closer. I'm no good at checking these things, except what is told on the news. And they hold back what is really happening sometimes.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Sorry if I am doing a double thread. I looked first, but didn't see anything about this, so I started my own.
I like to stay informed on such matters, ya know, in case I need to put on my flame-retardant jumpsuit.


How soon will they know what area may be impacted the most?
