You see, the problem with these solar flare posts and announcements is that nothing ever happens. We were supposed to have been hit by many solar flares (about 5 or 6) since I started reading these posts and despite the fact that supposedly we have been hit by solar flares many times already, nothing ever happened, my internet connection continues on working perfectly, my TV, GPS, phones etc. Same thing with those noises and Nibiru and whatever... When are things REALLY gonna start happening? I am getting sick of all that and about to go back on to my normal everyday life.

They don't. The Magnetosphere and ionosphere are affected. The wether on earth is not.

Really ? And you know this how ?

Where are your sources ?

None of you actually know 100% .....Even NASA doesn't know

"We don't know yet how these affect weather or climate -- likely there is not any direct effect," he said, "but there may be, over time, influences on ozone that affect climate."

I'm not saying there is a direct link, but I'm not going to rule out a possible correllation either, I suggest anyone with factual proof to the contrary, please put me out of my misery

Space Weather has revised their forecast. The CME is moving faster than they first thought.

REVISED FORECAST: The CME launched toward Earth by yesterday's X-flare is moving faster than originally thought. Analysts at the Goddard Space Weather Lab have revised their forecast accordingly, advancing the cloud's expected arrival time to 09:17 UT (5:17 am EDT) on Saturday, July 14th. Weekend auroras are likely.

Maybe you should do some research as well.

Weather on Earth can also be affected. Recently, NOAA scientists finally concluded that four factors determined global temperatures: carbon dioxide levels, volcanic eruptions, Pacific El Niño pattern, and the Sun's activity.

There is also historical evidence that long-term periods of global cold, rainfall, drought, and other weather shifts relate to solar cycle activity: Times of depressed solar activity seem to correspond with times of global cold. For example, during the 70-year period from 1645 to 1715, few, if any, sunspots were seen, even during expected sunspot maximums. Western Europe entered a climate period known as the "Maunder Minimum" or "Little Ice Age." Temperatures dropped by 1.8 to 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit. Times of increased solar activity have corresponded with global warning. During the 12th and 13th centuries, the Sun was active, and the European climate was quite mild.

Thanks for that.. Now that gets my attention a hair more. The faster they move...I'm seeming to see...the harder we seem to feel it here.

@ Thread

I was being sarcastic about the Carrington event because the Media seems to be going ape as if this really were. For those that rang no bells for...the Carrington Event is the grand measure of Solar Weather on the HIGH end for what humans have ever recorded (That I am aware of). I've got a small directory now of photocopied and scanned newspaper clippings from the period for what that was like to see and live through. I'd LOVE to have seen their world of almost no technology. The Aurora was enjoyed for days in El Salvador, for instance. It'd be our worst nightmare in this modern world....some other strong opinions on ATS notwithstanding.

The BIG one to recall though for media going bonkers today...... Carrington is estimated as having classed at X-40+ to as high as X-60. I've seen that high end a couple times....but I feel a lot more confident with the X-45 to X-48 more commonly attributed, talking about this as a layman. One major detail captured in contemporary reports though. The flare which generated the Carrington Event was visible by the naked eye from Earth in the solar flare itself. Everyone on the sunny side of the Planet knew something odd just happened....and a stunning 17 HOURS later, everyone knew what.

No.. this is no Carrington event. It's a little burp. A glitch in the matrix...and a nice show for those living in the far north. I wouldn't even take notice except the time is almost here anyway...and I'm curious to see impact classes on the charts for energy and wind recorded.

While I agree this isnt something to be concerned with this flare I do believe we should keep our eye on the Sun....

In regards to weather.... Lol.... It will indeed charge our atmosphere so..... Yeah that means it could have an affect on weather.

It's just after midnight when it will hit here in midwest USA! Yikes! I wonder if the powers that be are going to take advantage of this: I see it now, "We don't know where the money went! The solar flare fried our servers"....

WHO ON EARTH starred your post? WOW! The ignorance and denial is incredible sometimes.

Some people have the ability to look at the evidence rather than the data.

I am a farmer out in it everyday, I see the patterns and can predict accordingly, have never been wrong during this Cycle.

posted on Jul, 13 2012 @ 03:24 PM
I apologize for my curtness in that last post. I realize that there are some that read only what they find through data and other read into the same data more than what its states and then there are those like myself that are simple observers who see patterns clearly.

This is still an exciting thread, and I did not mean to derail the information sharing with my naughtiness.

Hahaha.... Sometimes you just say whats on your mind and think after... I could have been nicer.

Your post was on the nicer side I thought and you did not derail imo.

I am not sure how a charged atmosphere cannot be assumed to affect our weather ... But... Everyone in this world seems to think on a different level than the next person so... Whatever.. I digress lol

Oh and eta... I thought the same thing when i saw all the stars.. I mean really that many people agreed? Lol

This solar flare is 15 times the size of earth
and its coming on earth like a tsunami

This will knock down earth magnetic field big time
satellites will be the first to go and their circuit might not survive this huge flare

Lets not underestimate and overestimate it yet
we will see tomorrow

What is the time experts think it will slam earth ?

Its coming faster than they thought and it should reach us by morning... Not sure exactly what time as It was not important to me. What is important to me is it will be morning and Hopefully I can watch it come in. I live in TN so if you know how to calculate it, please do it for me as well or tell me how. Lol me and math have never gotten along.

Sorry this is going to demonstrate my gross ingnorance on the subject, but to dispel that ignorance, I have to ask, do these flares affect us health wise, as in increase a chance of getting sunburn or expose us to radiation of any kind? Or does it just affect our electronics (sometimes, depending on different variables).

A very good article published in the Washington Post on the discrepancies between NASA and NOAA on the timing and severity of the storm:

Solar storm incoming: Federal agencies provide inconsistent, confusing information

And a decent article in the LA Times this morning, too: 'Extreme' solar flare erupts, looks like storm is headed to Earth

I agree with the WaPo article ~ these two agencies DO need to get together for the purpose of accurate information.

big deal.

Big X class flares erupted in 2003: one was off the charts, over X20 ('X28'!!).

They didn't hit us though: it will be mildly interesting to see what this

one does.

from what I understand a Carrington Event would be something like a X 40, though I think a X10-15 in the late 90s fried the Quebec power grid.


so doom porn surfers look elsewhere, nothing to see here

(and I did notice someone saying they want to see the lights live and not on youtube, I am the exact opposite, if you see it, you might be saying bye bye to your electrical)

ahh mamma mia! someone logically sees the connection between our

big solar "lightbulb" and global warming with its severe weather association.

Put a 100 watt bulb in a terrarium, the terrarium gets warmer than if it was a 50 watt.

Simple. Solar oscillations power our global warming and cooling cycles.

Our outer gas giants have undergone dramatic climatic changes in the last 20 years

including massive southern storms on Saturn, the Great red spots dissappearance and

replacement, and the melting of polar caps on Mars! All in a stately progression from

outer to inner. That's curious. There aren't cars spewing out CO2 on Mars...

The Million dollar question is: does our sun normally oscillate? or does another

object 'trigger' increased output - periodically? See my prior ATS post here

We may never know.

Im on the fence with the million dollar question. Need more info...

Or could it be we are in a different type of space all together pieced with not much protection than previois years.

Energizing particles and or unknown energies are bombarding us?

The Sun is just like the Earth.... Just like you and I, trying to survive something.... Or am I just paranoid? Hahaha....

Id like to think I just think too much sometimes, then I sit back and watch my family and feel blessed at their site and company.

Life is grand!

If its mystical... Thats even more up my ally.

The questions beget questions and so on in my little mind.
