WoW been looking at the RTMS and I have never seen it like this before.. This is the most active it's been in a long time, it's the density that looks worrying.

Calling Phage



Keep a look out for Earthquake and Volcano activity, I have been following RTMS for a while now. Normally when we see anything close to the Solar Activity now we see Quakes.

Also take a look at X-Ray flux

M Class Link

and GOES Magnetometer Link

Glad someone posted about this... the density is currently maxed out off the charts, for some time now. ALSO, im not sure but recently im seeing so many vertical 'magnetic lines'.. i always recall them sweeping horizontally, though i might be wrong.

well one things for sure... the suns certainly comin back with a bang =)

interesting times =)

Where would someone retrieve interior(earth) data as well. I'd like to see a comparative against exterior and interior changes. All data would be nice to have, is it even accessible?

What is the picture labeled 'magnetic field'

Good find

Yea and if the predictions are right then it could get a little more active.

We seem to be experiencing a gust of the low-speed solar wind. Unlike the high-speed wind which originates from coronal holes, the low speed wind comes from coronal activity around the equatorial regions of the Sun. As we can see, the density of the low-speed wind is typically rather high.

These regions of low (and high) speed solar wind radiate from the Sun as it spins creating something like spiral arms moving away from sun. We are passing through one of these arms at the moment but the activity should be fairly short lived. Don't be surprised if we see it again in about 27 days (the rotational period of the Sun).

For a bit of explanation about the magnetosphere simulation, have a look here:

Hey thanks man, really appreciate your input. Thought I best ask somebody with experience before jumping the conclusions.

Should see some nice Auras then?

Nice to see some life from out Sun, not sure if that's a good or bad thing.

Cheers pal

flag for you. Shame you didnt post this yesterday as it was exactly this that i was trying to find to explain my post regarding australia.

And yesterday it was a glitch? this was what i was trying to explain but my pc wouldnt let me do anything

Please do a favor for the rest of us non-particle physicists.... what does all this mean for us?

(I am hoping it means a cool "Northern Lights" show that I can see in Minnesota tonight!)

At least here in Finland, i see proper geomagnetic storm, i think it ends soon, but it was really powerful, i have never seen so green sky.

Not dangerous, but really beautiful. First Aurora Borealis in many years, sun has been so quiet.

But is there coming another storm?

You might be onto something.

I've been looking at the usgs website and there have been alot of quakes recently.

Within the last hour there was a 2.5 in yellowstone area.

Today alone in the north america region we've had quite a few.

looks like we are in for more turbulence.

i wonder if there is a comparison chart somewhere for the past few years so we can compare.

It doesn't mean much unless you are an amateur radio operator (good conditions for long range contacts) or live north of the Arctic Circle (nice auroral displays).

The density of the solar wind has dropped to more normal levels over the past few hours though so unless it kicks up again it's unlikely you'll see much.

posted on Jan, 20 2010 @ 03:07 PM
I've been studying the density spikes and went back through the last few years and believe there may be a link between large spikes and earthquakes. I'm talking large earthquakes 7.0+. However the earthquakes show up about a week later. So time will tell.

Will there be a 7.0+ in the next week, possibly in the US/MEXICO area? We'll see.

The 5.9 aftershock that hit Haiti happened at Wednesday, January 20, 2010 at 11:03:44 UTC
The Magnetosphere started to heat up 11:04 UTC
Starts getting red at 11:19 UT 6.20100120111932.jpg
White at 11:33 UT.

Probably coincidence ?

And then again this could be a smoke screen under which the govt could pull a bunch more earthquakes and pretend they are natural.and get away with it.

that govt-caused earthquake conspiracy is wack even for me.

No science and physics. It has been already proven when there are dynamic forces (11 yearly sun activity) going on in the sun, that this affect all surounding planets in our solar system.

I never want to know if there gonna be a big solor storm with the magneto-sphere we gonna have at this moment. Things could really turn bad.

Be lucky we dont have a sun like Betelgeuse (1000 times bigger then our sun)
