Some days the sun is so bright it's unbelievable.

I amazed at how oblivious people are to it, and do not take any notice.

I guess they just believe its always been like that.

Yesterday's CME impact was just marvelous. My bro had 2 seizures in one day (he barely have one in a few months.It's a post-traumatic epilepsy) and I had a migraine as usually but this time it kicked really hard with a new bonus vomiting. For us two the peak was at 22-2300 GMT+1
Sometimes I don't like the Sun much.

lets hope this thread doesnt get buried under a bunch of doom threads, its a beautiful day here and sunshine

There was no CME "impact" yesterday. There has been a bit of an increase in solar wind speed in the past 5 or 6 hours though.

Are you sure? August 19 - an Earth directed filament eruption which arrived yesterday
Check the news.


Also notice the Kiruna riometer voltage peaks. It's a new stuff for me and I think it's interresting.

Weak CME Impact
Attached data courtesy of the ACE space craft shows that a weak shock passage was observed overnight. A geomagnetic sudden impulse measuring 12nT was detected at 07:00 UTC. Solar wind speeds increased slightly to above 350 km/s and the Bz component of the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) has been variable. As of this update, only a very minor increase in geomagnetic activity is being detected. More updates to follow this morning when required.

With something that weak, I think your brother needs to blame his seizures on something else.

Actually he doesn't blame it at all. That data weakness is pretty common lately. You see high density and low speed or just nothing when there should be something. For me it doesn't mean much. What happen if you have high density charged particles coming at low speed? Maybe kinda shockwave or just something more efficient than silly borring solar wind from a coronal hole. Sometimes the size doesn't matters.

Yes, I am sure.

SkepticalObserver is not news and the data shows that the CME (if you can call it that) did not arrive until around 06:00 on the 19th (UTC). There was a very slight increase in the density and a slight increase in the speed of the solar wind at that time. The Bz component showed some very slight and mild variation until about 18:00 when it took a fairly strong south turn.


At that point, even though the CME itself was very mild we started seeing some moderate geomagnetic activity because of its magnetic orientation in relation to the Earth's. It may have produced some nice aurora in northern Europe but as you can see, the 18th was very calm (as it is again now).

Neither you, your brother, the Earth's magnetic field, or the weather were affected by the CME before it got here. SkepticalObserver is not news but he does like to throw big words around and claim that solar activity affects weather and causes earthquakes.

It was no tiny filament. I checked those Kiruna voltage meters and seen these coincidental changes from 1,5V to 4V in the right times as my inner radar told me first as usually.
Nevermind. I know it's not exact science (yet) and I should resist to start a rant here. Just maybe don't touch my news channel. Make a vid everyday and I may subscribe yours as I mostly like your MO. They are doing a great work and see connections you as well as mainstream science caste servants don't want to see. We are made of stardust, starwater and electricity. Look at the world nervous anthill and say nothing to see here.

Well it seems it was nothing minor in the end and maybe a start of something bigger. We've seen auroras, earthquakes and continous flaring with some new indications of the solar pole flip. We'll see yet if this is it already

HI all,
So i really think an X-3+ is immanent and also is there a connection between low activity on sunspots and 7+ earthquakes it seems at times when theres less/few sunspots facing earth that there seems to be larger earthquakes Can anyone approximate the data on this??

well it came to pass. i guess i should write feeling/stuff down more often.

I just wanted to add to the current thread what I read today and I didn't notice it mentioned anywhere else.
This just doesn't look good, but I'm no expert!

Huge Solar Flare Erupts from Biggest Sunspot in 24 Years (Photos)




The biggest sunspot on the face of the sun in more than two decades unleashed a major flare on Friday (Oct. 24), the fourth intense solar storm from the active star in less than a week



The solar flare occurred Friday afternoon, reaching its peak at 5:41 p.m. EDT (2141 GMT), and triggered a strong radio blackout at the time, according to the U.S. Space Weather Prediction Center. NASA's sun-watching Solar Dynamics Observatory captured stunning video of the huge solar flare.

The flare erupted from a giant active sunspot known as AR 12192 and was classified as an X3.1-class solar storm — one of the most powerful types of solar storms on the sun — but it is not the first time the sunspot has made its presence known. [Biggest Solar Flares of 2014 in Photos]

"This is the fourth substantial flare from this active region since Oct. 19," NASA spokesperson Karen Fox wrote in a status update.

Here is the link to the article with the pictures and all the information.

Your source:


"Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation," Fox wrote in the NASA update. "Harmful radiation from a flare cannot pass through Earth's atmosphere to physically affect humans on the ground, however -- when intense enough -- they can disturb the atmosphere in the layer where GPS and communications signals travel."

Any such effects have been and gone. There was an X1.3 flare a few hours ago. Same situation.

I read on a thread here yesterday that the storm was pointed directly at the earth during the eruption and that a couple (?) days from now we should expect excellent Aurora viewing... along with whatever other doom-porny effects may accompany it!

Not so much.
There was no significant CME associated with the flare. No CME, no geomagnetic storms, no aurora.

Just got a text from Space Weather, guess the sun is getting busy again,

"Xray Flare Alert

Earth orbiting satellites detected an X1- class solar flare at 2014-11-07 1732 UTC."

This sounds a little ominous in the warning. Area 2192 is rotating back to face earth and has grown bigger. If you remember the last time it faced us, it let off 6 X class flares but did not produce any CME's with them.
Science20.com

AR12192 is due to rotate back onto our side of the sun today and and it has grown. Because of its size, the leading edge would actually have appeared about a day earlier.


On its first pass, the huge AR12192 was comparable in size to Jupiter and produced several (ordinary) X-class flares and many smaller ones, but no large CMEs.

But Hugh Hudson of Space Sciences Laboratory at Berkeley, California, notes that older active regions tend to produce more CMEs, so he is expecting a big CME show this time around.


The so-called Carrington flare of 1859 produced aurorae visible in Queensland, and damaged telegraph stations around the world. Our modern technological world is far more vulnerable.

So, if AR12192 launches any large CMEs in our direction when it comes around to our side, we’d better batten down the hatches.

That can mean disconnecting long-distance power grids, placing satellites in safe mode and rerouting aircraft on polar routes.The Conversation

a little about the previous go round...

AR 12192 rotated into view on Oct. 18th. It was already an area of intense and complex magnetic fields and soon grew into the largest such region in 24 years.


According to the info and link above the spot is growing but according to Solarham it is shrinking, I guess we will see.

Region 2209, the return of old sunspot 2192, produced a C8.4 peaking at 06:09 UTC. The former giant looks to have decayed significantly while transiting the farside of the sun. We will get a better look at what remains of the region as the day progresses.
