Sun unleashes powerful CME for summer solstice

June 22, 2013SPACEOn June 20, 2013, at 11:24 p.m., the sun erupted with an Earth-directed coronal mass ejection or CME, a solar phenomenon that can send billions of tons of particles into space that can reach Earth one to three days later. These particles cannot travel through the atmosphere to harm humans on Earth, but they can affect electronic systems in satellites and on the ground. Experimental NASA research models, based on observations from NASA’s Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory and ESA/NASA’s Solar and Heliospheric Observatory show that the CME left the sun at speeds of around 1350 miles per second, which is a fast speed for CMEs. Earth-directed CMEs can cause a space weather phenomenon called a geomagnetic storm, which occurs when they funnel energy into Earth’s magnetic envelope, the magnetosphere, for an extended period of time. The CME’s magnetic fields peel back the outermost layers of Earth’s fields changing their very shape. Magnetic storms can degrade communication signals and cause unexpected electrical surges in power grids. They also can cause aurora. Storms are rare during solar minimum, but as the sun’s activity ramps up every 11 years toward solar maximum – currently expected in late 2013 — large storms occur several times per year. In addition, the CME may pass by additional spacecraft: Messenger, STEREO B, Spitzer, and their mission operators have been notified. If warranted, operators can put spacecraft into safe mode to protect the instruments from the solar material. –NASA

    Well, if we don’t get the kill shot EMP event from a solar CME, I’m sure the Chinese or the Russians would be happy to help us out and create one through the use of one or more high altitude, air burst, nuclear weapons.

      Wouldn’t that be the perfect “screen”… Detonate an EMP device at the time a CME is due to arrive… Hopefully our tracking capabilities are up to snuff to be able to discern what is an attack vice what is a CME event…

      Maybe that’s what caused my car’s antitheft computer system to send signal not to allow car to start. It’s happened before. I’m starting to think the Chevy 2006 HHR is like the canary in the mines with regard to EMI from CMEs! Anyone else having electronic problems? Power went off and then back on at home. Also, at work this week, calls were being cut off and switched, so that one department got calls meant for another and vice versa.

    • ChazIng says:

      On what evidence would you accuse China and Russia of such intent?

    • Coyote says:

      Dear Arlen: You know that may very well be what’s in store. Big chance that it would be human induced, BUT, if it’s solar sent without much warning darkness desends in many areas, but please MISS us in the lower 48. There’s way too many shepple and zombies to have this turn out well.

  2. Very Exciting Although from Past Experience When Solar Flares CME`s hit Earth on the Fullmoon, 30% increase in E-Motional Content. More Violence from Nature and Huge increase in Human ANGRY as you can see all over the world People screaming in the Streets from Brazil To Bahrain, World on FIRE. THE SUN on your Pineal Gland, Be Care-full! It is not your Fault, THE SUN WILL SPEAK TO YOU, SAYS MAYA.

    Good point Arlen, and even if the Chinese or some other hostile entity were responsible our Government could still blame it on a CME and get away with it. They control what we know or don’t know and anyone who thinks mass media news sources are actually reporting events that do concern us is kidding themselves. Our ignorance is their bliss….

    Has the plug been pulled out of the Atlantic? Crack on Earth’s crust could make ocean DISAPPEAR – and pull Europe and North America together
