Comet Slamming Into the Sun and Causing Solar Flare

Partial CME Impact Causes Geomagnetic Storm

Flares from Sunspot 1302 resulted in Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) partially directed at Earth, resulting a geomagnetic storm rated by the NOAA as Strong to Extreme on Monday. The NOAA reported that solar wind speeds had increased from 300km/sec to over 600km/sec at 12:15 UTC, indicating the arrival of a CME released two days ago … Continue reading

Strong Solar Activity for the Month of September

Having already unleashed two X-flares since Sept. 22nd, sunspot AR1302 appears ready for more. The active region has a complex “beta-gamma-delta” magnetic field that harbors energy for strong M- and X-class eruptions. Flares from AR1302 will become increasingly geoeffective as the sunspot turns toward Earth in the days ahead. “Sunspot complex 1302 is incredibly easy … Continue reading

Solar Flares Could Unleash Nuclear Chaos On Planet Earth

(NaturalNews) Forget about the 2012 Mayan calendar, comet Elenin or the Rapture. The real threat to human civilization is far more mundane, and it’s right in front of our noses. If Fukushima has taught us anything, it’s that just one runaway meltdown of fissionable nuclear material can have wide-ranging and potentially devastating consequences for life … Continue reading

Would You Be Prepared If A Solar Flare Took Out The Power Grid Today?

For those of you that follow Space Weather Monitor on a regular basis, or if you just keep a close watch on solar activity you are most likely aware of the solar flares that took place last week. Overall it has been a pretty busy month on the solar surface and there are more sunspots developing every … Continue reading
