If you look closely, you will see magnetic lines starting to shoot out of the south pole

of our sun. The last time the magnetic poles flipped on our sun was February 15, 2001.

That's 12 years + 4 weeks.



By Thursday or Friday you should see a new headline from Space.com.

"Good Morning! It may not look like it but our sun just flipped its magnetic poles."

Here is a link to the last flip.

NASA . GOV ...Our Sun G2V

The above article discusses how the Earths magnetic poles ALSO flip but with less

regularity.

So?
Should I 'flip' out?

Great. the big solar flare is going to happen pretty quick.
We got a lot of snow on the ground to bounce it back right now. Maybe it will help melt the snow for us
There is about three foot of dense snow on the ground right now at my house. I hope the next storm slams the middle of the country and misses us..

Never mind.

The reversal of the Sun's magnetic field is a process. It doesn't just "flip".

Actually the polarity of the Sun began to switch last year. And, as you can see, the process is continuing (green is "south").


By the time we get to the next minimum it will have completely reversed.

Yes, the SDO magnetic field pattern will appear more like a bar magnet when complete.

We are not there yet.

This video has a great snapshot between reversals /during a reversal comparison at 2:19 in the video.

No, do not flip out.

If anyone asks, you can tell them what is happening to our sun.

Not really. The magnetic field lines seen in the SDO imagery shows connections between solar regions.

That is a model of the reversal of Earth's magnetic field. The Sun's field does not work the same way.

I'm thinking by Friday March 22, 2013 our suns energy pattern will look more like this.




Isn't it odd that our moon is just the right size to give spectacular views like this

of our sun?

Why? That's the corona. And the image is a composite.

Not really. But you know we see more annular eclipses than total eclipses, right?

Yes, it's a composite. It looks beautiful!

Does it resemble a bar magnet energy pattern?

BTW, have you checked the SDO today?


Activity it picking up on the south pole of our sun.
