Awakened: Sun’s convulsive behavior dismays scientists across the globe

November 13, 2011REMARKABLE SOLAR ACTIVITYThere haven’t been any strong solar flares in days. Nevertheless, some impressive activity is underway on the Sun. For one thing, an enormous wall of plasma is towering over the Sun’s southeastern horizon. Stephen Ramsden of Atlanta, Georgia, took this picture on Nov. 11th. Solar forums all over the world are buzzing with solar astronomers proclaiming this to be the biggest prominence that many of them had ever witnessed,” he says. Remarkably, though, this is not the biggest thing. A dark filament of magnetism is snaking more than halfway around the entire Sun. See SDO images below. From end to end, it stretches more than a million km or about three times the distance between Earth and the Moon. If the filament becomes unstable, as solar filaments are prone to do, it could collapse and hit the stellar surface below, triggering a Hyder flare. No one can say if the eruption of such a sprawling structure would be Earth directed. “I can’t help but wonder what could possibly come next since we are still over a year away from the forecasted Solar Maximum,” adds Ramsden. “There’s never been a better time to own a solar telescope than now!” –Space Weather
  
The Sun has awakened…. A typical prominence extends over many thousands of kilometers in length; the largest on record was observed by the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) in 2010 and is estimated to have been over 700,000 kilometers (430,000 mi) long – roughly the radius of the Sun. This 2011 prominence is about 1,000,000 kilometers in length- making it the longest ever seen on the Sun. No one knows exactly why prominence activity appears to be escalting on the Sun or what this means for the future of our star. –The Extinction Protocol

      Yes, but it is still being restrained for a little while. Why are the scientists dismayed? Statistically speaking we should have had a direct hit already, but when the sun spots start to line up with earth and they quiet down, and when they move out of earths trajectory: wham! a big flare occurs. I understand why the scientists are afraid. They must be wondering to, who or what is restraining the flares.

  2. I did a little research on Hyder flares, but what I want to know, what would the effect be for us? And, other than the cause, how does this differ from a regular solar flare?

      • Why are these events growing larger and larger on the Sun? First, let me add – Since this is a relatively new phenomena, meaning in the modern history of solar astrophysics- we don’t fully know yet what they could possible do.

        No Killer solar flares: http://www.space.com/13587-killer-solar-storm-earth-2012-nasa.html

        NASA says in the above article: “Contrary to what some doomsayers would have you believe, our star isn’t capable of blasting out a solar flare powerful enough to burn our planet to a crisp, according to the space agency. “Most importantly, however, there simply isn’t enough energy in the sun to send a killer fireball 93 million miles to destroy Earth,” NASA officials wrote in a Nov. 10 statement.

        However, killer solar flares and even fireballs from the Sun are not the real cause of concern from the Sun. What we may need to worry about is these Hyder flares. We need to figure out why they keep growing larger and larger and are they an event that’s conjuctive to the weaking of Earth’s magnetic field or just an omen of more super-activity from the Sun. Let’s me also preface what I’m about to say with the statement that there is no present indication at all that this current filament on the Sun represents any kind of a present threat to Earth.

        The Bible gives us a dire warning: “And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the Sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.” Revelation 16:8

        We can’t be sure how this will happen but most likely it could happen with one of these super filaments, more so than from a sunspot flare, when the filament is expelled in space possibly towards Earth. You asks what’s the difference between a regular solar flare and a Hyder flare. Here’s the frightening difference

        SF

        A regular solar flare erupts from the surface of the Sun where temperatures only reach 5578 K or 5505 C

        SP
        Size of a solar prominence next to Jupiter and below tiny dot of Earth in scale

        A solar prominence although anchored to the solar surface, it actually extends into the Sun’s corona. It is the hottest region of the Sun. Temperatures, here, average by contrast between 1,000,000 million and 2,000,000 degrees K and there is some evidence that temperatures of solar winds in the corona can reach as high as 8,000,0000 to 20,000,000 K. Now you have a filament suspended up over the Sun’s surface in the hottest region of the Sun. Solar plasma feeding these structures is heated from under 6000 K to well over 1×106 K. It’s anchored to a very potent magnetic field, and it’s being superheated and it is about as long as 1/147th the distance between the Sun and Earth. We don’t know what would happen if any of this was hurled Earthward before it cooled…but I would be willing to guess the effect wouldn’t be anything like what we’ve ever seen from a solar flare.

    The scientists themselves sounds not sure which only adds to the mystery for all on earth. So, if you go to NASA website, which I have done earlier today, there is no worry from any solar flares and we are safe, nothing to see here is the message I got from the NASA site. Day by day we will just keep our eyes and hears open because there will be no fair warning from the top governments, etc. Keep safe all.

    In the study of Scripture, the prophecy concerning the Sun, at the End, that it will be darkened always entriqued me. I would like ot postulate that with all the solar activity and ‘new things’ it is doing, there lurks the possibility that the “darkening” could be the Sun ejecting it’s chromosphere, in one or several massive CME. THe Sun would indeed appear dark then. The surface would be seen, like the dark areas inside sunspots.

    We are all wondering why this unusual solar activity is happening but so far nobody has mentioned one obvious possibility. The entire solar system (like our entire galaxy) is travelling through space. We also know that space is not empty. Perhaps we are entering a region where there is some abnormal amount of electromagnetic activity or whatever and this is acting on the sun to make it do unusual things.

  11. My observation is that such CME potential is not such a great danger to the surface of the Earth but to satellites and their communication systems. We rely so much these days on airborne coms everything from supermarket reordering systems to cell net, to tv that if the bus systems in the satellites are overloaded and cooked then lots could go down. When a batch of plasma is on the way from the Sun we get about two days to re orientate satellites or shut them down to restrict damage but they can go wrong, witness the current problems with the Russian Mars probe which is stuck in orbit and failed to fire it’s second and third firings to send it to MARS so it is not such an exact science as we would like to believe. Keep an eye on this Solar stuff as it could effect your hole in the wall banking access and other mundane things much more likely than frying you on the street.

    Here in the Philippines, we had a speaker who is also a prophet from India, by the name of Sadhu Sundar Salvaraj. He did say that there would be coming solar activity that would wipe out all forms of telecommunications. In the same conference, we also had Neville Johnson, a prophet from Australia, who also received prophecy about the Japaese earthquake back in the 70’s with a 9.1 magnitude. when the Japan earthquake happened this year, he also felt ‘9.1… now is the time to pray through Psalm 91’. He also had the word that from this earthquake, the world will never be the same again. He mentioned that the world financial organizations would become unstable and fall. Those things happened…

    As for the Revelations scripture about the sun, there are still some other things to come before that event. For me there is an element of excitement, because of the fulfilling of bible prophecy, and at the same time the feeling of ‘Needing to do something’, as I’m sure there will be a lot of people out there not knowing what’s going on. We need to be ready to comfort them and share the Gospel to them.

    If this type of solar flare was to reach the earth, the earth would not be destroyed.
    Why, God’s word is going to come to past as he has spoken it.
    Yes, revelation 18:4 will happen, but if one of these flares destroyed the earth, then God’s Word could not be fulfilled. That is not to say that life on earth would not become nearly be unbearable.
    But, I don’t think we have anything to worry about. i don’t think this issue is a threat now, but will be later. God’s word in regard to the end of the age will come to past whether we live to see it or not. That is what I think.

  14. God was not a micro-manager says:

    Oh, and here I thought this was a ‘respected’ news site, not one based on words allegedly transmitted to mere beings on earth from a god. For one thing, I honestly cannot believe that 3 billion people on this planet, of various religions, truly believe that a god would so micro-manage our lives. Freewill was one of the biggest gifts given to our lives on this planet. All the other words, whether based on truth or not, came out of the mouths of mere men. Men with various alterative motives (disciples/apostles 60 years after Jesus died, probably needed a retirement income, so they, perhaps, embellished a tad).

      You are correct on one point – God does not micro-manage. We have free-will to follow Him or not follow Him. Those who have accepted His sacrifice are part of His family. And as any earthly father does for his children, our Heaven Father will take care of us, in this world and in the next. We are only passing through here. Those who have rejected Him, He will leave to their own choices.

      We come to this site from all kinds of faiths and beliefs. No one is twisting anyone’s arm to believe as any one person does even if we all share what we believe. We respect each other. If you choose not to take advantage of Alvin’s wonderful site, that is your choice, and your loss. No one will ever force you to say.

      As for micro-managing, I believe the worst offender of micro-managing is man, either through religion, economics, or government mandates. I could never understand why some non-believers get so upset when we mention faith. Faith is what brings us comfort. Faith is what keeps us sane. Faith is what helps us hold on as everything starts collapsing around us. I guess you could say, faith is our seat belt. Things are going to get a lot worse. I don’t believe we can even imagine how bad it is going to get. I also encourage you to stick around so you are prepared, but like I said, that is your choice.

      Thank you Alvin for your faithfullness.

      What an absurd philosophy you have. Where do you get the idea that apostles & disciples needed a retirement income in 60 AD? What? Do you think the early Christians had a condo each in Barbados or Palm Beach & sat on the beach sipping pina coladas whilst soaking up the sun? Peter didnt really have a nice retirement anyway – being crucified upside down wouldnt be my first choice of spending my final days. Maybe martyrdom is a form of retirement in your mind. The beauty of the Free Will that you so casually mention is that we CAN choose to believe & have Faith – be it in a Christian God or not.
