It looks like a North / South magnetic pole battle on our sun.
It happens about every 11 years.




Coronal Loops are beautiful !

That is a beautiful picture.

Thanks for posting. (S and F.)

Of course, you don't realize just how big that object is, by just looking at the picture.
Something to think about.

Go to SDO and run a 4 day movie for the first 4 days of 2013.
Use Telescope 171. It's like watching fireworks!
512 X 512 works fine. We are due for a magnetic pole flip on our sun.

Sorry man, TauCetixeta.

I need more instructions.

I must go where? SDO ?

Do you have a URL ?

I know it happens every 11 years but maybe Sols spastic field swap is reeking a bit of havoc on our planet right now. I feel there may be a correlation between Solar cycles and Earth weather patterns that science has yet to discover.

As for when the poles finish there reversal, is Sol going to let out a big "burp" so to speak? Does anyone know if that is something that generally happens. I know a fair amount about space and this stuff, but I am curious as to if that is a common occurrence with a flip.

Here you go:
SDO

Click on DATA then AIA HMI Browse.
Then create a 4 day movie. Start January 1, 2013 End January 4, 2013
512 X 512 works fine.
Enjoy the show.

Thank you for the help, TheSparrowSings.

The link you posted took me to the SDO ("Solar Dynamics Observatory"),
and I managed to view the 512x512 golden sun video.

That was awesome!
Thank you very much for your help.
Much appreciated.

Thank you, TauCetixeta.

I followed your instructions too, and the video I got, was just absolutely beautiful !!

A have a question though:
It looks like the sun sphere is rotating from left to right.
Is that the actual rotation of the whole sun body?

Or is it that perhaps only the surface effects (magnetic forces) are moving/rotating.

And what is the actual rotation speed?
I am now very interested.

Yes, the sun is rotating. The Earth is orbiting the sun. Everything is rotating.

You can switch telescopes if you want to.
For coronal loops Telescope 171 works the best.

Yes, yes, I know the earth is rotating. And I know the earth is orbiting the sun.

But what i didn't expect, was to see how FAST the sun was rotating.
I was actually expecting the sun to be rotating at a rate of say 365 days per one revolution.

You know, more or less the same speed as the earth goes around the sun for one complete orbit.

It looks like I was completely wrong though.

It's revealing to see the top and bottom of the sun to be calm and peaceful.
The middle of SOL looks like an all out battle.


When the Coronal Loops disappear then the reversal will be complete.
Then we will have to wait another 11 years.

Wow.
If we have to wait another 11 years, then I am happy that I saw this now.

Thanks again for your help.

Actually, the sun is almost in a coma right now. The so called solar maximum we are currently experiencing can hardly be called one.

The sunspot number as well as CME's and amount of flares is ridiculously low, compared to the last 200 years of sun observation.

I can recommend this youtube channel to you, the poster makes a small video each day of solar events. Very interesting and well made. CLICK

Coma? Have you ever seen so many Coronal Loops on our sun before?
I think the magnetic pole flip will occur on our sun within the next 3 days.

Uh oh.

Another fairly specific date for a prediction from you.

Given your track record of not ever nailing one of you predictions, I think I'll be more realistic and just keep an eye on astronomy sites.

We are over due for a magnetic pole flip on our sun.
The last flip was February 15, 2001. Do the math.

So "doing the math" makes you say as you did in your previous post that the poles will flip "within three days"?

I'm not saying it won't happen, (sometime this year, yeah would fit the cycle) but for you to say "within three days" strikes me as very reminiscent of all your 2012, Jan 1st, etc. predictions.

Just sayin'.

Yes I did, quite often actually.

These filaments are so weak, they don't even get ejected. They collapse upon themselves.

I also did not deny the fact that a magnetic pole reversal is in order, I was merely pointing out the surprisingly low activity of the sun, given it is in the midst of its maximum. Maybe something else is affecting the solar system.

The Sun's magnetic field isn't really a bipolar field like Earth's, it's more a collection of a lot of separate fields. The magnetic reversal of the Sun involves the predominant polarity of the fields in the northern and southern hemispheres. Apparently the reversal actually got under way earlier last year.

Currently the polarity at the north of the sun appears to have decreased close to zero – that is, it seems to be well into its polar flip from magnetic north to south -- but the polarity at the south is only just beginning to decrease.

To get an idea of how complex the magnetic field of the Sun is have a look here:
sdo.gsfc.nasa.gov...
Yes, there are a lot of active regions right now. None of them seem to be very threatening.
