M-8: Another solar flare blast, another CME heading to Earth

 
March 10, 2012SPACEA Weekend Solar Flare: Sunspot AR1429 is still erupting this weekend. On Saturday, March 10th, it produced a powerful M8-class flare that almost crossed the threshold into X-territory. In New Mexico, amateur radio astronomer Thomas Ashcraft recorded a series of shortwave bursts emanating from the blast site: audio. Also, the explosion propelled yet another CME toward Earth: forecast track. The cloud is expected to hit our planet’s magnetosphere on March 12th around 1800 UT. A CME from an earlier explosion will arrive much sooner, however. –Space Weather

  3. The NASA predicted quite a long time ago, that this would happen in 2012 and 2013, there it is! 🙂

    What does this mean in simpler language? Should we be worried?

    *****EXTREME MAGNETOSPHERE ALERT*****
    Dens.(p/cc) – EXTREME SPIKE AT 06:30 hrs UTC
    V(km/s) – EXTREME SPIKE AT 06:30 hrs UTC
    Density & Speed of Solar Winds = PRESSURE ON MAGNETOSPHERE

    EXTREME SPIKE ON MAGNETOSPHERE.
    The angle of the solar wind Bz(nT) extremely spiked at 06:30 hrs UTC. Proton levels are EXTREME. Further earthquakes, volcano activity and other disasters will be greatly influenced by the cosmic rays striking the earth’s core which is also contributing to the heating of the earth’s core.

    *****EXTREME MAGNETOSPHERE ALERT*****

    Dens.(p/cc) – PARTICLES HAVE GREATLY INCREASED
    V(km/s) – SOLAR WIND ENERGY LEVELS HAVE GREATLY INCREASED
    Density & Speed of Solar Winds = PRESSURE ON MAGNETOSPHERE

    EXTREME PRESSURE ON MAGNETOSPHERE.
    The angle of the solar wind Bz(nT) & By(nT) are in a intermittent negative stage. Plasma Temperature & Density levels are spiking moderately to severely. Proton levels are EXTREME. Further earthquakes, volcano activity and other disasters will be greatly influenced by the cosmic rays striking the earth’s core which is also contributing to the heating of the earth’s core.

    GEOMAGNETIC STORM IN PROGRESS

    Kp Index is at level 6
    Scale of G2
    Moderate

    Power systems: high-latitude power systems may experience voltage alarms, long-duration storms may cause transformer damage.
    Spacecraft operations: corrective actions to orientation may be required by ground control; possible changes in drag affect orbit predictions.
    Other systems: HF radio propagation can fade at higher latitudes.

    Its amazing that they always head directly towards the tiny speck of ‘earth’, isn’t it?
