Solar activity intensifies: large sunspot may produce X-class flares

May 9, 2012SOLAR ACTIVITY INTENSIFIES: Huge sunspot AR1476 is crackling with M-class solar flares and appears to be on the verge of producing something even stronger. The sunspot’s ‘beta-gamma-delta’ magnetic field harbors energy for X-class flares, the most powerful kind. Earth is entering the line of fire as the sunspot rotates across the face of the Sun. –Space Weather

    Has anyone heard anything regarding the May 20, 2012 anomalies? I have been looking into some research that states the actual celestial alignment that is to happen on Dec 21, 2012 is actually May 20. This date just so happens to coincide with a partial solar eclipse and is the same day as the NATO meeting in Chicago that residents are being told to evacuate for. Here are a couple of links I have found most interesting. What are your thoughts

      Thanks for all the information, I looked at it and it seems to me like those websites just try to scare people. Trust this website, I use to go to all these websites and make myself sick searching and finding more information. When I found this website it calmed me in a strange way because at least we are getting the real information here and although some of these websites can be interesting to go and read, they I just feel is not all fact they take bits of facts and make it to what they want people to believe and try to scare us. Who knows if something will happen May 20th, everyday something seems to be happening and we find it out here. We all know something is going on with our earth and thats why we all come here and are able to connect with eachother. Another thing I’m doing is reading Alvin’s book currently which is so interesting just be careful with all these websites and I’m glad you posted them so I could see. Take care.

        agree,everyone was saying something was supposed to happen on april 23 and there was days in mar something was supposed to happen,and not one thing that I know of happened on any of the days they said.I dont put no faith in day predictions,just know that stuff can happen at any time and be prepared as much as possible.

    Frightening indeed for those who aren’t ready. Per Space Weather – RADIO-ACTIVE SUNSPOT: Huge sunspot AR1476 is crackling with M-class solar flares and appears to be on the verge of producing something even stronger. The sunspot’s ‘beta-gamma-delta’ magnetic field harbors energy for X-class flares, the most powerful kind. Radio operators are recording strong bursts of shortwave static from the sunspot as it turns toward Earth. But I’m standing strong in the Lord.

    like wise to what Dan said, looks like Hawaii… my home, LOL!! hope it doesn’t shoot at us….


  7. Melissa says:

    Wyoming had another earthquake, 3.5 I believe.


  8. Wiseguy says:

    We had a very short quiet period after large swarms of strong earthquakes followed by volcanic eruptions. Now we are starting a new and certainly stronger cycle of earthquakes and maybe volcanoes at the same time… Who knows what’s next… Exciting times…

    We better locate some really dark sun glasses if you are outdoors, the sun is burning white hot, don’t over expose your skin. I hope we all be near our place of comfort if the grid suddenly goes down. carry some food and water if you can in your car or on your person, it might calm you down if you’re caught in a grid down situation. This is the possible great equalizer that will get even the thickest of heads to “LOOK UP” and wonder what’s going on. Teens and their I pads and cell phones will CRY CRY CRY, but some will sober up and try to help others survive. Sorry, I am rambling.


  10. Craig says:

    if and when the grid goes down (soon i believe) i hope everyone on this site is well prepared, and i hope people like us can find each other amid the chaos and help each other . everyone should a *SHTFP* (sh#t hits the fan plan) and a grab bag with essential items



    • Dawn says:

      I wish the same that people here some how can find eachother if something happens. I think we are all preparing as best we can and the one thing that I really need to do is make those grab bags for my family. Thats on my list asap. I have been stockpiling but haven’t made those bug out bags yet.


      • Craig says:


        the things that i believe everyone shoud have in their bug out bag , is a little hex stove for boiling water , water purification tablets , matches , antiseptic,batteries , small radio, and some energy food
        obviously alot more as well but put those things in first
        when the time comes i hope people can flick that switch that changes their mindset from ” ive got stuff due at work next week , and im looking forward to a holiday next year , and i want to start a family in 5 years ” to this mindset ” OK, all that doesnt matter anymore the only thing that matters is surviving”

    A class M5.7 solar X-ray flare occurred on 2012/05/10 with peak time 04:18 UT. Flare appears to have originated from region 1476. Too soon for complete data report. how bad is this?
