Mild geomagnetic storm alert for glancing CME blasts

June 10, 2012 SPACEM-FLARES: New sunspot AR1504 is crackling with impulsive M-class solar flares. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory photographed the extreme UV flash from one of them, an M2-class flare on June 10th at 0645 UT: NOAA forecasters estimate a 30% chance of polar geomagnetic storms during the next 48 hours as a pair of CMEs pass by Earth, possibly delivering glancing blows to our magnetic field. –Space Weather

    The electromagnetic storms of the last ten years, have a single one of them had impact on earth?

    • DLHenry says:

      Actually all these impacts on the earth have seem to be causing Volcanoes to “wake up”…..but I guess you could say nothing is happening if nothing is effecting you directly :-/

    • Conor Brennan says:

      got a bit of sunburn a few weeks ago from that M-Class!!! lol. Seriously though, i havent heard of anyone having problems except your mobile phone can be a bit iffy

      Hi Finn, have a look at this very interesting link and it will answer your question .
      keep safe. http://www.solarham.net/

    • James Norway says:

      Hi Finn, the electromagnetic storms vary in size and affect the earth differently. Some can effect satelites, electricity grids and mobile netts, others can effect the weather..Most dont do that much…But if we are hit with a strong one or a series of strong storms then it could have a greater effect on the planet..

    Alvin,
    Thank you for all the breaking news. Jesus will soon return.

    Its always quietest right before the storm!

  4. John says:

    Sorry if this is the wrong place Alvin, but major tremors along the west coast of America today. From Vancouver Island to Northern California, multiple tremor spots all around the same time indicating mass movement of the plates perhaps?

    • Indicating stress is building for a 6.5 to 8.0 event to occur anywhere from Baja, California to Northern California.

    • Dave H. says:

      John. Can you please tell us where those major tremors were today? I’m just outside of Seattle and haven’t felt anything yet. Just wondering if I should get the wife and head out for a while.
      Thanks for the post.

    6.5 – 8.0 that doesn’t sound very good

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A massive flare that exploded from the solar surface in March unleashed the highest-energy light ever seen during a sun eruption, scientists say.

    On March 7, the sun let loose a massive X5.4 solar flare during its biggest outburst in five years. NASA’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope saw an unusually long-lasting pulse of gamma rays — a form of light with even greater energies than X-rays — produced by the flare.

    At the flare’s peak, the gamma rays that were emitted from the sun were 2 billion times more energetic than visible light, making it a record-setting detection during or immediately after any previously seen solar flare, researchers said. In fact, as the flare erupted, the sun briefly became the brightest object in the gamma-ray sky.

    “The sun is [usually] not a very bright source in gamma rays,” said Nicola Omodei, an astrophysicist at Stanford University in California. “We don’t detect the sun on a daily basis. On the other hand, on March 7, the sky looked completely different, as the sun became an intense, bright source of high-energy gamma rays.” [The Sun's Wrath: Worst Solar Storms in History]

    Alvin,
    Did you see the news in ScienceDaily ?

    Uh… Wow.
