Incoming CME & Geomagnetic Storm- Tomorrow

Geomagnetic storm / Solar Watch – January 18, 2013

 – POSTED ON JANUARY 18, 2013POSTED IN: SOLAR ACTIVITY UPDATESOLAR WATCHSPACE WEATHER

Two Coronal Mass Ejections (CME’s) are expected to impact the earth in the next 24 hours and a G1-Class Geomagnetic storm will be possible shortly after. Solar activity is expected to go quiet again after these active regions rotate off the earth-facing disk over the next 36 hours.   Video by SolarWatcher http://solarwatcher.net Related posts: Brief G1 geomagnetic storm over Solar wind  reached near 700 km/s and this helped stir up a brief G1 Level Geomagnetic Storm (Kp=5) at high latitudes during the early hours of Wednesday morning. Migratory animals are affected at this and higher levels and aurora is commonly visible...

C5.8 Solar Flare
Who needs a Sunspot to generate a solar flare? A rapid release of energy measuring C5.8 was detected around a spotless plage located in the northeast quadrant. The quick blast was also associated with Type II Sweep Frequency event with a velocity of nearly 1700 km/s. More updates to follow if necessary.
ALERT: Type II Radio Emission
Begin Time: 2013 Jan 18 1710 UTC
Estimated Velocity: 1695 km/s

SuspiciousObservers has some very interesting things to report today.

What they don’t tell you: http://youtu.be/Xcm9qsVaf0o –Climate Change is more than just warming, and more than just human CO2… a lot more.

California earthquake- USGS using their favourite eraser again

We had  major earthquakes off the coast of Baja California this morning- and already the USGS is creatively editing the information.

Dutchsinse posted this video around 4:30am CST this morning- outlining the 6.4 and 6.1 magnitude earthquakes off the coast of California, and two earthquakes in Nevada and Utah 3.5 and 3.2 mag that immediately  followed.  Dutch outlines the earthquakes in a brief report below:

BUT….. by the time I got my lazy ass out of bed at 6:30am EST the USGS had already been doing some creative editing.  The 6.1 magnitude earthquake has completely disappeared from their charts along with the 3.5 and 3.2 in Nevada and Utah. As a matter of fact if you click on the links that Dutch provided  here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkGhkIMiZHc   You’ll see that the USGS has oh so creatively combined the two earthquakes into one.  Interesting.

SuspiciousObservers gives this update:

Solar Geomagnetic update Nov 23

While NOAA seems to think that sun spot 1618 is all partied out, (now saying only a 10% chance of a M class and 1% for X Class flare), several other observatories think not.  The University of Bradford Space Weather Research Team are giving vastly different odds of 62% for M Class and 57% for X Class Flares. 

Add to this the fact that sunspot 1619 is now directly earth facing and might be putting on it’s dancing shoes too.

We have one CME impact incoming later today, and they’re expecting a mild to moderate geomagnetic storm to match, but we’re also expecting at least one, and most likely two more CMEs to directly impact Earth tomorrow raising the probability of geomagnetic storms in the higher range.

As SuspiciousObservers notes in his update today (video below) there was another instability on our lovely Sol yesterday that released yet another CME- directly earth facing, which makes this a triple event.

With everything else that’s going on, this could be a very interesting weekend my friends.

Geomagnetic Storm Watch
Thanks to multiple eruptions on the Earth facing side of the Sun, two Coronal Mass Ejections appear to be somewhat Earth directed. The first CME impact is expected during the day on Friday. Minor to Moderate geomagnetic storming will be possible heading into Saturday when the 2nd impact is expected. Stay Tuned to SolarHam.com for the latest information.

Sunspot 1618 facing Earth – Beta-Gamma-Delta magnetic configuration

 – POSTED ON NOVEMBER 23, 2012POSTED IN: SOLAR ACTIVITY

Active Region 1618 keeps evolving and it has now Beta-Gamma-Delta magnetic configuration  that harbors energy for M- and X-class eruptions. It produced an M3.5 flare with peak at 15:30 UTC on November 21, related to a halo CME first seen at 16:12 UTC by SOHO’s LASCO C2 coronograph with a speed of 560 km/s (calculated with LASCO/C2 data, not enough STEREO/COR2 data is available for calculating speeds), SIDC reported. Encounter with the Earth can be expected by November 24 with corresponding elevated geomagnetic conditions.   NOAA/SWPC reports that although this region retains weak beta-gamma-delta magnetic characteristics, it has experienced intermediate penumbral decay. Sunspot...

SO: Solar System Shift

If you’ve read Daniel’s first paper, then I think you’ll find this interesting as SuspiciousObservers outlines the shifting of the solar system.

7.7 Magnitude Earthquake with Tsunami warning off West Coast of Canada

edited 10:28 4:14pm est
more earthquakes including a 6.3M just over an hour ago- bringing the total to 51


edited 10/28 1:56pm est
Since the first 7.7 M earthquake last night, there has been a constant earthquake swarm- 33 quakes between 4.0 -5.1 Magnitude quakes.



Late last night a 7.7 magnitude earth quake hit the Queen Charlotte Islands off the west coast of Canada- this was followed by several more earthquakes in the 4-5 magnitude range.  A Tsunami alert was issued, and has just been cancelled 45 minutes ago: http://www.google.org/publicalerts/alert?aid=e03a6e895721fff1&hl=en&gl=US&source=maps

Here is Dutchsinse’s report on  the event- please note the amount of earthquakes, of magnitude 4.0 or greater, that have hit the west coast of North America in the past 7 days.

SuspiciousObservers report for today:

My friends, it’s not “Fear Porn”, it’s a reality wake up call.  Our planet is shifting (in more ways than one), and we need to Be Prepared!
