Can't wait for a big one, im tired of worrying.

BPEarthWatch does an incredible job of following these celestial events and explains things well. He has a whole set of comet Ison videos also. Very, very good at what he does on YouTube.

Here, this should be better.

BPearthWatch is a good source, he doesn't lie.

in 2003, on X class flare was OFF the SOHO satellite's sensor

capabilities - it actually burned its sensors out for a bit - and was

over X20. it was not directed earthside.

We had an X-28 back in November 2003. This little X-3, while noteworthy, won't do much to us on terra firma.

Here's a list of the biggies, sans Carrington, from SpaceWeather:

Offhand, I'm not sure if the list needs to be updated or not, but it's pretty good at illustrating that we've indeed had much stronger ones to worry about before.


How many of those were Earth directed?

There's been quite a few x class and m class flares lately



If the x class just happened it takes about two days to reach the earths magnetic field

From Spaceweather.com


SOLAR FLARE CAUSES RARE 'MAGNETIC CROCHET


Radiation from the flare caused a surge in the ionization of Earth's upper atmosphere--and this led to a rare magnetic crochet. Alexander Avtanski observed the effect using a homemade magnetometer in San Jose, California. A magnetic crochet is a disturbance in Earth's magnetic field caused by electrical currents flowing in air 60 km to 100 km above our heads. Unlike geomagnetic disturbances that arrive with CMEs days after a flare, a magnetic crochet occurs while the flare is in progress. They tend to occur during fast impulsive flares like this one. Solar flare alerts: text, voice.

Geeze, I was just at space weather a little while ago and didn't check the more data section. That was just before signing onto ATS. I came upstairs to check if there was a big flare, the cats have been flying through the house and they sound like thunder. S&F for catching what I missed. I think this is just the start of things to come, that is an ugly sunspot....maybe I should talk nicer about the sun, it might throw a big one at us and knock out the power if I keep making fun of it's Zits.

My cats ( I have two) have been running for a couple of days now, just flying through the house. This is very unusual for both of them because they are old.
I was wondering what the heck was going on with them. Now I know.

Being that you guys & gals are obviously keen and seasoned observers of this X-Flare phenomena...

I would love love love to get your collective take on this (related?) matter:

Will there be an uptic in reporting of 'EarthHum' at the weekend (8th-10th Nov.)...?

There are many persons on ATS who attest to having witnessed this phenomena. Trusting as I am, I would rather believe in these accounts (especially of ATSers) than write them all off as total-hoax... At least to have an open mind and to explore the matter before writing it off without any thought.

I appreciate that this is not OP thread mater, and will happily delete this post if it's a distraction.

Fascinating thread and links from all!

One more possibility in the circle of all of this...will the (smallish, though giving Earth a glancing blow) XFlare forebode of a "major" (6.0 and above) earthquake? Many (even here on ATS) follow/study such. And for the kitties going "crazy" there HAS been research (Jim Berkland) they animals act out of their "norm" in the hours preceding a quake. They "sense" the impending danger.

Berkland has been debunked 15 ways to Sunday. Yes animals can sense these things before we do and we don't exactly know why... perhaps their better sense of hearing and smell plays a part, electromagnetics unless they can hear them or smell them, probably not.

Here are a couple of photos taken from SOHO/Lasco that may be of interest

Will that mean that the November 13th electrical blackout will be caused by the sun, and not just a "drill"?

You need to catch up with your information... according to most everything I have seen, which is sourced through suspicious0bserver, whose morning news pretty much sums up all important solar activity and is worth a watch, this solar maximum is a big time failure...

He is definitely worth a watch...

suspicious0bservers (u can get his youtube thru here)

Current Sunspot activity. Pictures from NASA/SDO SATELLITE obviously this is the Earth facing side.

So is this the so claimed shot across the bow!
2nd.


No, that was in 2003, an x45 Flare

I have been keeping up with the solar flares for along time now and we have not had anything close to an X-28 for a very very long time. An X-28 would fry everything electrical for good on this planet.

That list is completely wrong!!!! M class yes but we have never had anything close to an X-28. Smaller X-Classes are rare until Solar maxims and they are very rare over X-6.

When the sun gets like this, the biggest thing to watch for is WAR! For some reason people go nuts when the Sun fires up just like a full moon. It plays hell on the brains of the leaders just as it does us. Not good considering all the crap going on right now. Hopefully this wont be the trigger.
