Oh you mean like here?...
it seems the Sun has reduced the number of its sun spots since 2011. It seems kind of odd, considering they were claiming this to be the "solar maximum" the peak of an 11 year cycle.
The quasilinear mean-field theory for driven MHD turbulence leads to the result that the observed cross helicity may directly yield the magnetic eddy diffusivity \eta_[T] of the quiet Sun. In order to model the cross helicity at the solar surface, magnetoconvection under the presence of a vertical large-scale magnetic field is simulated with the nonlinear MHD code NIRVANA. The very robust result of the calculations is that < u_z b_z >\simeq 2 < u\cdot b> independent of the applied magnetic field amplitude. The correlation coefficient for the cross helicity is about 10%. Of similar robustness is the finding that the rms value of the magnetic perturbations exceeds the mean-field amplitude (only) by a factor of five. The characteristic helicity speed u_[\eta] as the ratio of the eddy diffusivity and the density scale height for an isothermal sound velocity of 6.6 km/s proves to be 1 km/s for weak fields. This value well coincides with empirical results obtained from the data of the HINODE satellite and the Swedish 1-m Solar Telescope (SST) providing the cross helicity component < u_z b_z >. Both simulations and observations thus lead to a numerical value of \eta_[T] \simeq 10^12 cm^2 /s as characteristic for the surface of the quiet Sun.

My point was
Everybody is using the Sun for a purpose it was not meant to be used for.
That being Solar Weather prediction.
D'you not mean the Daily Mail?
Eat, drink, and be Merry. and F the sun.

THIS IS MY FIRST TIME I'VE SENT A REPLY ON ABOVE TOP SECRET I LOVE THE FORUM AND I JUST WANT TO SAY EVERYONE IS DOING A GRATE JOB ON HERE,I'VE BEEN LOOKING AT THIS WEBSITE FOR A FEW YEARS NOW AND I LOVE IT, SO I'M GONNA CUT TO THE CHASE TO DO WITH THIS THREAD , MY OWN PERSONAL OPINION ON THE MATTER IS I BELIEVE ASTRONOMERS DON'T KNOW THE SUN 100% OR MAYBE THEY DO AND THEY JUST DON'T WANNA TELL US EVERYTHING BUT I'M TOO GETTING THIS WEIRD FEELING SINCE THE BEGINNING OF 2012 THAT SOMETHING IS NOT RIGHT , A DUNNO IF I'M THE ONLY ONE BUT IS ANYONE ELSE GETTING THIS WEIRD VIBE ? IN A WAY WHERE YOU LOOK OUT AT THE NIGHT SKY AND YOUR'E INSTINCTS TELL YOU SOMETHING BAD IS GONNA HAPPEN WELL I THINK ITS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE SUN AND ITS GIVING ME A CONSTANT FEEL OF ANXIETY MAYBE THE MAIN STREAM SCIENTIST ARE LYING TO US ALL AND THE SUN IS BURNING OUT AND IT AIN'T GOING TO HAPPEN SOME 5 BILLION YEARS TIME OR SO , BUT IN FACT COULD BE SLOWLY HAPPENING RIGHT NOW , THINK ABOUT IT , ALL THE WEIRD ANOMALIES IN THE SUN IF THE SUN WAS GONNA BURN OUT AND THEY NEW ABOUT IT LOGIC DICTATES THAT NASA AIN'T GONNA TELL YOU SO YOU COULD SAY ITS A POSSIBILITY I'M NOT SAYING IT'S A FACT REMEMBER AND SORRY ABOUT THE CAPITAL LETTERS LAUGH OUT LOUD IT'S A BAD HABIT THANKS FOR READING AND PLESE EVERYONE TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK.
No it doesn't. But the fluctuations of the magnetic field can induce low frequency currents in long conductors like power lines.
When earth's magnetic field bounces back into shape, it releases trillion of watts of electricity back towards the earth.
No. There were failures of telegraph systems, and some sparks, maybe a fire on a desk or two but it wasn't as if the entire office was set on fire. Those problems were a result of those low frequency currents induced in long conductors.
In 1859 a huge solar flare hit the earth it set telegraph offices on fire.
It is more complex than that but a geomagnetic storm is similar to the E3 phase of an EMP, which only affects long conductors.
An EMP is a burst of electromagnetic radiation from an explosion or a suddenly fluctuating magnetic field.
No. Solar flares do not produce the effect. It occurs when a CME arrives at Earth.
The sun is known for creating these pulses in solar flares.

A Solar flares effect, depending on the strength of the flare and if strong enough, the solar impact can effect everything including earths magnetic field, power grids, triggering natural disasters and even possibly impacting individual brian activity.
