Wow - looks scary! And by all accounts deadly - who designed this God, The Devil or Man?
Just another reason to try and get to heaven.
I'm sure this post was sincere, but I guffawed reading what's in bold.

It's just something I would imagine the leader of the cult Heaven's Gate would have said before killing himself in order to "evacuate" from the planet and hop aboard a UFO.

Do you post while wearing a tin foil hat Maria?

Actually, Dr. Phillips of NASA suggests staying indoors or in car while a Solar Flare is blasting the earth, unless you like to be irradiated.

A tin foil hat does not provide much protection. Do you know what a Faraday cage is? A screen room made of lead or Mu-metal is best. Multiple layers of copper mess provides good protection and so does a plastered ceiling made with fine mesh. The openings must be less than a quarter wavelength of the frequency that you wish to protect yourself .

Have you bothered to see the credentials of Dr. Philip who administers the www.spaceweather.com site?

He is an astrophysicist as was my dad.

I delight in observing the heavens as the heavens proclaim the glory of God.

This is really unjustified nothing. You should apologize. I appreciate the space weather reports since I am a shortwave radio listener. I am not sure where to buy Sn foil if that will improve my reception.

UNUSUAL HAM RADIO PROPAGATION: It may seem strange, but solar flares can be both good and bad for radio communications. It all depends on the frequency. Below 10 MHz, signals were strongly attenuated. At higher frequencies, however, the reflectivity of the ionosphere was increased, allowing improved over-the-horizon communications. Ham radio operator Bob MacKenzie of Ottawa, Canada, shares this anecdote: "Only minutes after the M9 flare on March 7th, I was able to work three amateur stations in Japan using just 5 watts of single-sideband power and a single-element vertical antenna in my backyard. It's a rare event to work Japan so easily with such little power on phone and not Morse code. The annual ARRL International DX Phone contest was on at the time so there were plenty of DX stations on the air, making this observation of unusual propagation possible.

www.spaceweather.com for March 9, 2015

We had an M-4 Class solar flare at 1433 UT (7:33 AM PDT). It appears to have been a magnet crochet which can heat the atmosphere and possibly trigger storms as they rise and fall quickly which causes rapid heating and cooling.

Then we had a C-9 Class solar flare later on today about 1740 UT (10:40 AM PDT).

Beware, this new sunspot can unleash X Class solar flares.

According to the raw data available via satellite, we just had another huge M-5 Class Solar Flare today at 2354 UT (4:54 PM PDT)



See www.spaceweather.com for the latest updates. This current sunspot, AR 2297,  has developed a 'beta-gamma-delta' magnetic field that harbors enough energy to unleash an X-Flare.

The most recent M-5 Class solar flare appears to have been a magnet crochet as it has a very rapid rise with a very steep decline.

Lots of chatter among the ham radio operators.

On the AM bands, there was obviously a change in ionization, with more stations online and more interference.

About an hour ago, we had another M2 solar flare (2151 UT) or  2:51 PM PDT.

The graph shows active C-class flaring ... often a prelude to an M-Class or X-Class solar flare.

Whenever we do have flaring sunspots, and a CME is released earthward, then we can see these magnificent auroras, according to www.spaceweather.com, run by NASA scientist, Dr. Philip

Quote
CHANCE OF STORMS: Friday the 13th could be a lucky day for sky watchers. Several minor CMEs propelled toward Earth earlier this week by active sunspot AR2297 are expected to arrive en masse on March 12th and 13th. Their collective impact could spark bright auroras around the Arctic Circle. NOAA forecasters estimate a 60% chance of G1-class geomagnetic storms when the CMEs arrive. Aurora alerts: text, voice

The aurora photo below was  "Taken by Трифонова Любовь on March 11, 2015 @ Russia, Kola Peninsula, Murmansk region "

Yes, the M- and X- class flares can affect iPhones, cell phones, computers, and GPS devices. Cell phones and iPhones can be adversely affected when lots of people get online too. Thunderstorms can also cause black outs.

Several people have reportedly ended up in ditches, rivers and at the pier when the GPS failed during a solar flare.

I will post a graph from NOAA to show you their alerts.

http://services.swpc.noaa.gov/images/notifications-in-effect-timeline.png

All of the radio alerts usually mean that radios and GPS devices will be adversely affected.

All of the above "radio events" alerts indicate temporary black outs.

I love this thread Kelly. I read it religiously.  It is like Google news to me. If you think I am crazy we can discuss this aspect here.

I was going to reply to Mor's post about singing, but I did not want to get into a conversation about jammers because that would lead me to a conversation about libertarians (as most ham operators are) and how they dislike rules/laws and disobey them continuously. It is a weird culture worth learning about.

My husband and I have noticed that most Hams are very reticent today.
They do not joke and kid around as they use to. It is mostly business.
Gone are the good days of sharing.  Lord have mercy.

Probably most people here do not realize that Ham Radio Operators now fall under Homeland Security as they have valuable services and most likely will be the only source of communications in emergencies when cell towers and power grids might be disrupted by a massive solar flare, earthquake, etc.

On March 17-18, 2015, we experienced a double CME impact that generated a Kp=8 Geomagnetic storm. This not only caused interferences in communications, but affected us too.

Quote
Geomagnetic storms do more than just produce auroras. Amateur radio operators noticed strong disruptions to long-distance communications. David Hassall (WA5DJJ)  of Las Cruces, New Mexico, sends this report: "Shortly after the CME hit on March 17th, we experienced strong disruptions on the 10 meter (30 MHz) band. [Pictured below] is a screenshot of 200 mW transmissions on the path between Las Cruces, New Mexico and Northland, New Zealand as received by ZL2IK."



"The signal disruption happened on this radio path at 04:46 UTC (about 15 minutes after the CME arrived) and shifted the frequency of mine and other signals which were traversing that path. We are always studying the effects of solar events on our tiny signals and from this screenshot you see that they can be quite dynamic. Signals from England on this screenshot were affected differently than the ones from the USA."

These past two weeks have seen X-flares and M-flares almost every day.

For the last three days things have cooled down, with some scientists predicting a spotless sun and the beginning of a maunder minimum (cooling trend). No such luck,
as an old huge sunspot, 2360, has just returned promising to sizzle with more solar flares.

Here is sunspot 2360 (see circled spot on the right) a few days later on June 13, 2015:


And here is its return today as seen on the far left, June 28, 2015:

Old sunspot 2360 has now been renamed: 2373.

Here is a new feature started by a young Harvard student, who follows www.spaceweather.com

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pVGLTBay5_g

It is obvious that he is a little nervous, but overall he does a great job on his daily newscast.

Today we had two M-1 class solar flares about 12 hours apart from new super sunspot, AR2381:

2040 UT (1:40 PM PST)

Here is our peppered sun with 131 sunspots:

I think so too. I hope he continues.

If that radiation can get through miles of atmospheric interference and resistance, I doubt my roof will slow it down much.

Same with tin foil hats.


Do you post while wearing a tin foil hat Maria?

Actually, Dr. Phillips of NASA suggests staying indoors or in car while a Solar Flare is blasting the earth, unless you like to be irradiated.

Thanks for calling a prestigious NASA scientist, a tin foil hatter. I think he will appreciate that.

QUIET WITH A CHANCE OF FLARES: Solar activity is low, but the quiet might not last. Fast-growing sunspot AR2381 has an unstable magnetic field that harbors energy for strong solar flares. NOAA forecasters have boosted the odds of an M-class eruption on July 7th to 45%.

You are welcome!

I must wonder, however, whether he was hired to do astrophysics or teach self-esteem to Moslems?

I have started a new thread to entertain that question.

That seems like a good idea. I do not know how you sit with the common notion that low self esteem leads to violent behavior.

As far as space exploration, we need to return to the 1960s tax rates.

Some of the most violent people I have met have oodles of self-esteem.  Sociopaths are nothing but giant balls of self-esteem, and they are capable of perpetrating absolute horrors.
