Sunspot AR2859 erupted on August 26, producing a C3 class solar flare.
SoHo intervals revealed concomitant coronary mass ejaculation (CME):
The storm appears to be in a direct path to Earth, says Dr. Tony Phillips (from spaceweather.com).
NOAA analysts are looking at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange now, no doubt eager to determine exactly when it will arrive — Dr. Phillips’ guess: Monday, August 30.
Over the past few months, Earth’s magnetosphere (due to its shifting magnetic poles and the onset of the upcoming GSM) has failed to handle even the smallest solar events – even ‘non-events’ causing problems for years past that wouldn’t have gotten a solar physicist out of bed.
Space weather is now the number one threat to our technology-driven modern civilization.
Earth’s magnetic field is weaker than we all realize.
In 2000, we learned that the field had lost 10% of its strength since the 19th century.
Another 5 percent was lost by 2010.
Other accelerations have occurred in recent years, 2015 and 2017, but we weren’t privy to any additional loss data– With guesses about why you might quickly go into a conspiracy rabbit hole.
However, what we do know is worrisome enough – given the rapid weakening of our planet’s magnetic field (which no one denies, by the way), until August 26 Moderate A Class C3 CME has the potential to cause disturbances on Earth.
We should expect electrical disturbances on impact, radio outages, and even blowing a transformer or two-Who do you know?…but one thing is certain: this is the future we are all heading towards, and there is not a single future Strict power grab can save us.
A large-scale grid reduction scenario is fully guaranteed by 2024 (with the sun rising to solar cycle 25).
On top of that, the August 26 ignition wasn’t actually the main attraction—not at first, anyway.
The volcanic eruption also caused a massive “solar tsunami”.
Watch the mysterious wave ripple across the sun in this false-color ultraviolet movie from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory:
The expanding ring shadow is a wave of hot, magnetic plasma.
Based on the time it took to reach the next sunspot, halfway around the sun, the tsunami was traveling 110,000 miles per hour.
The solar tsunami has always heralded the presence of a CME, and this was no exception.
As noted above, we are now patiently waiting for NOAA’s update on the time and date of the CME impact…
Wonderful! Spectacular eruption from AR 12859. Although the magnitude of the associated flare is only C3.0, the location and appearance of the eruption make it difficult to remain silent about the potential impact on Earth. Prepare for the arrival of August 30th. pic.twitter.com/qU1QsNp5yW
