NASA confirms sun’s magnetic field is about to flip

August 6, 2013SPACESomething big is about to happen on the sun. According to measurements from NASA-supported observatories, the sun’s vast magnetic field is about to flip. “It looks like we’re no more than 3 to 4 months away from a complete field reversal,” says solar physicist Todd Hoeksema of Stanford University. “This change will have ripple effects throughout the solar system.” The sun’s magnetic field changes polarity approximately every 11 years. It happens at the peak of each solar cycle as the sun’s inner magnetic dynamo re-organizes itself. The coming reversal will mark the midpoint of Solar Cycle 24. Half of ‘Solar Max’ will be behind us, with half yet to come. Hoeksema is the director of Stanford’s Wilcox Solar Observatory, one of the few observatories in the world that monitor the sun’s polar magnetic fields. The poles are a herald of change.
Just as Earth scientists watch our planet’s polar regions for signs of climate change, solar physicists do the same thing for the sun. Magnetograms at Wilcox have been tracking the sun’s polar magnetism since 1976, and they have recorded three grand reversals—with a fourth in the offing. Solar physicist Phil Scherrer, also at Stanford, describes what happens: “The sun’s polar magnetic fields weaken, go to zero, and then emerge again with the opposite polarity. This is a regular part of the solar cycle.” A reversal of the sun’s magnetic field is, literally, a big event. The domain of the sun’s magnetic influence (also known as the “heliosphere”) extends billions of kilometers beyond Pluto. Changes to the field’s polarity ripple all the way out to the Voyager probes, on the doorstep of interstellar space. When solar physicists talk about solar field reversals, their conversation often centers on the “current sheet.”  The current sheet is a sprawling surface jutting outward from the sun’s equator where the sun’s slowly-rotating magnetic field induces an electrical current.  The current itself is small, only one ten-billionth of an amp per square meter (0.0000000001 amps/m2), but there’s a lot of it: the amperage flows through a region 10,000 km thick and billions of kilometers wide.  Electrically speaking, the entire heliosphere is organized around this enormous sheet. During field reversals, the current sheet becomes very wavy. Scherrer likens the undulations to the seams on a baseball.  As Earth orbits the sun, we dip in and out of the current sheet. Transitions from one side to another can stir up stormy space weather around our planet. -NASA

    I refer to that video by NASA : “…data from Wilcox (observatory) show that the sun’s two hemispheres are ODDLY out of sync …” – as subtitles at 3:20 and by narrator at 3:34. WHY “ODDLY” as before that segment , everything was supposed to be “normal” ???

  2. Kaos says:

    Legend :)

    There was a crop circle showing the sun with obvious pointers saying “flip” – this illustration is in the pdf forum about to go on the website http://www.hiddentextsofnostradamus.com under the title
    AA ALLEN, JOE BRANDT & WILLIAM BRANHAM ~ L.A. FIRST TO GO.
    Here are a couple of excerpts regarding the sun and its flip

    The Sun experiences a Pole Reversal every 11 Years. This is Not the same as a Pole Shift on Earth. But could BOTH occur AT THE SAME TIME???

    • Bone Idle says:

      I hope not. – Not yet anyway. Not while I’m still alive.
      The earths magnetic pole will flip sometime in the future.

      As already stated, this solar magnetic reversal happens every 11 years. I’s normal. Just another part of the perpetual solar cycle.

      What’s not normal is NASA’a chief solar Physicist – Dr Hathaway calling a Maunder minimum. – Low solar activity for the next couple of 11 year solar cycles.
      Low solar activity is associated with Ice ages.

    • xaxaxa says:

      Maybe, because one could trigger the another.

  5. So I still don’t understand how this will effect the earth. What is going to happen in 3-4 months??

  6. Dennis E. says:

    So, someone help me. What can we expect from this and it appears it is going to happen in latter October/November.
    Thanks

    • S
      Winter Solstice

      Given NASA’s time frame, this event could very likely coincide with the winter solstice on or near December 21, 2013 17:11 UTC. What should we expect from this? Nothing like the end of the world. This event is a regular cycle for our sun. However; given the planet is already more agitated during the energy exchange flux geomagnetic event via the Earth and Sun grid on the winter solstice- we will likely see a more geologically animated planet.

      • Dennis E. says:

        Well Thank you Alvin. In the back of my mind I was thinking that we might have an unusually cold winter. People are posting on the internet regarding the lack of sun spots and the idea of a period of extreme cold on the earth.

        have a nice day

    • lindee-lou says:

      we also have 2 eclipses coming up. oct 18 and nov 3. the nov 3 eclipse should be turbulent, …. trying to force order into place, kinda. hugs

  7. JamesKin says:

    Why would any one awake and conscious believe any thing that came from NASA?
    After the zillions of lies they have told. Come on folks please wake up, please.
    Like we know comets are not dirty little snowballs.
    And we know the water from mars is here on earth.
    And we know the creator of the uni-verse is not NASA. And we know you will pay for what you have done. And we know weather is electrical in nature as are many celestial events. And we know the sun is an unlimited source electricity. We even know more then that. NASA it is time to get a grip, you cant fool all the people all the time. And you fool fewer and fewer each time you lie.
    We are not as stupid and ignorant as you had hoped.

    It’s been a little over twelve years since this happened last:

    http://science1.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2001/ast15feb_1/

    Herald of change, huh? Well, 2001 saw the US lose its seat on the UN Human Rights Commision and brought us GWB as president, the Twin-Towers, the Patriot Act, Homeland Security, war in Afghanistan, the anthrax letters, the bankruptcy of Enron (a prelude to the mortgage crisis) . . . the start of a lot of problems that have yet to end. So, who knows, maybe this flip will bring some resolution. . . .

    reminds me of (a different star cluster and) this verse:
    Job 38:31
    King James Version (KJV)
    31 Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades….?

    Energies from stars affect us.

  10. The Sun gives us Spiritual Energies not just radiation, Light and heat.

  11. merle48 says:

    “Geologically animated planet”….I like that, however, that is an understatement!

  12. D. N. says:

    I don’t think there will be any massive changes. If the sun changes it’s poles every 11 years and we didn’t noticed it, why should this change now…

    Sorry that this is off topic, but it is a fascinating article about Comet ISON.

    Nah. The US Masonic government is just going to fry all the computer networks so that there is no record of anybody’s bank accounts; then they’ll impose the ‘mark of the beast’ biochip onto all citizens. They’re just softening you up to expect it.

    Was it on this site that I read about the new top secret weapon that Russia and America, and who knows who else now, has in the form of a bomb that can wipe out all electrical grids and technical networks?

  15. James Montgomery says:

    God’s Word makes it clear the Earth will wobble like a drunkard and finally roll over. Look at the history of the North Poles movement and you will see this verse is fulfilled.
    Isa_24:20 The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.

    The below verses describe what the Earth’s roll over will look like. Isa_34:4 And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree.

    This also triggers the last great earth quake during the 6th seal.
    Rev_6:14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

    One result of the earth flipping, according to scientist would be a world wide wind between 200 – 300 miles an hour for 2 to 3 days, which would destroy everything and every body above ground. In the verse below you’ll see where God Almighty uses His angel’s to keep this from happening before His servants are sealed.
    Rev 7:1 And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.

  16. Faye Brown says:

    Many have suggested that there’s no difference in this polarity flip of the sun, than any other in their 11 year occurrences … but in studying the facts I would beg-the difference … recently said in a 2012 report, the process of the north and south poles swapping places wasn’t going as expected … and that it had previously been assumed both polarities switched at the same time .. but that this time around the polarity at the north of the sun appeared to have dropped close to zero way ahead of the polarity at the south …causing an imbalance between the north and the south poles, and scientist didn‘t understand why .. also reports stated that early maps showed large, strong concentrations of magnetic fields that were almost all magnetically negative in polarity, yet recent maps show a different picture … and what once pointed to a strongly negative north pole, was now weakly magnetized and not only were patches of magnetism smaller and weaker, but there were a great deal of positive polarity visible as well … reports also stated that typical models of the magnetic flip suggest that as active regions rotate around the equator, their higher, trailed the edge, drifting upward, which would eventually dominate the status quo and turn positive to negative or negative to positive … yet the Hinode data showed that this transition at the north began before such drifting had a chance to occur …
