DOOM ON 911 + Giant magnetic explosion on sun racing to Earth - Power Outages!

Scientists with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration say an “extreme” solar flare has been detected and while Earth appears to be in the bull’s-eye, exactly which part of the planet will see the biggest impact isn’t yet known.

Such phenomenon can disrupt power grids, radio transmissions and other electronics, and in a worst-case scenario could actually take such systems down, perhaps for extended periods.

Officials with the federal agency said the flare is near the center of the sun and happened at 1:45 EDT Wednesday.

“Impacts to [high frequency] radio communications on the daylight side of Earth lasted for a little more than an hour. … Initial information suggests that [coronal mass ejection] is likely associated with this event, however, further analysis is underway at this time.”

It depends on the intensity, but an EMP could cause a catastrophic, breakdown of power grids and satellites that could last months, or even years.

Well look at that. If we go down, see you on the other side wave.gif

“unprecedented cascading failures of major infrastructures.” That's comforting.

giant solar flares have been going off for years now, i don't think there is anything to worry about.. 13.gif

This one is apparently headed right for earth. All we've had are glancing blows for a very long time.
The solar storm of 1859, also known as the Carrington Event,[1] was a powerful geomagnetic solar storm in 1859 during solar cycle 10. A solar coronal mass ejection hit Earth's magnetosphere and induced one of the largest geomagnetic storms on record. The associated "white light flare" in the solar photosphere was observed and recorded by English astronomers Richard C. Carrington and Richard Hodgson.

Studies have shown that a solar storm of this magnitude occurring today would likely cause widespread problems for modern civilization. There is an estimated 12% chance of a similar event occurring between 2012 and 2022.[2]

Major, X-class solar flare erupts on sun, second in two days


[On Tuesday], the magnetic canopy of sunspot AR2158 erupted, producing an explosion that lasted more than 6 hours. The flare peaked on Sept. 9th at 00:30 UT with a classification of M4 on the Richter Scale of Solar Flares. Long-duration flares tend to produce bright CMEs, and this one was no exception. Coronagraphs onboard the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory observed a CME racing out of the blast site at nearly 1,000 km/s (2.2 million mph)
According to NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC), Friday’s geomagnetic storm is expected to be moderate — a G2 on the scale of intensity from G1 to G5. Storms of this magnitude typically set off voltage alarms of high-latitude power systems, and could cause transformer damage if the storm lasts long enough.
The relatively high predicted intensity of the storm also means it could be possible to see the aurora as far south as the northern U.S. states, including Wisconsin, Michigan, and New York.

If the weather is clear and the internet holds up, we'll film the aurora and upload to youtube.
The last one we had similar to this, the sky looked like the ocean with waves of energy. Really strange.

Northern lights formations could be visible from southern Finland in the coming days due to a powerful solar flare which has launched from the sun towards Earth.

The phenomenon is likely to last three to four days, according to experts at Fairbanks University in Alaska.

the report calls for it to miss us/graze us - any other reports?

the repotted "effects" of this one is coming off rather ambiguous as I read - anyone else?

Quote:Later, however, Young sent Sky & Telescope an update: the CME's initial velocity was less than initially thought, about 875 miles (1,400 km) per second. Therefore, the shock front now crossing interplanetary space should reach Earth on Friday at about 12h Universal Time (5 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time). The SWPC's predicted geomagnetic disturbance is G3, a medium-intensity level that could trigger auroras over locations roughly northward of latitude 45° north (Oregon, Illinois, New England, and northern Europe).

AR 2158 was also responsible for a lower-intensity eruption yesterday. Although not headed directly at Earth, that predecessor could create a partial clearing in the interplanetary medium that would allow today's blast to reach us sooner that it otherwise would.
