Massive explosion seen on the farside of the Sun

November 10, 2012 SPACE As solar activity picks up on the Earthside of the sun, the farside of the sun is coming alive, too. During the early hours of Nov. 9th, a magnetic filament located behind the sun’s southeastern limb erupted, hurling a bright coronal mass ejection (CME) into space: This explosion was not geoeffective, but future explosions might be. The blast site, still potent, is just days away from rotating onto the Earthside of the sun. –Space Weather

Thanks, by the way, for all of the hard work you do scoping the news and the web to bring us so much info. God bless u!

    Just a matter of time before things line up and we are hit by one of these flares.

    I keep wondering what will hit us first: some natural disaster like an EMP or an economic meltdown. After a global natural disaster the economic meltdown is inevitable and direct. When the economy goes first, we still have a natural disaster someday. As cream on a pie…

    “There shall be signs in the sun, moon and stars.” Maybe we are seeing some of those signs right now.

    For the last three months I have been thinking that all the talk about CME’s taking down the electrical grid was simply theoretical and that nothing will upset our “neat” little world of television, CNN news, politics, Disneyland, and hiphop music. However, after reading this article, I am thinking maybe the Carrington Event could take place between now and Dec 21, 2012. Maybe the Mayan Calendar might be right. Probably not, but who knows? Every once in a while something strange does happen on this planet. Anyhow, as a tired old prepper for over 15 years, I at least have some supplies to get me through a year without the support of electricity. Unfortunately, most Americans in a Carrington Event will fair no better than the poor folks who are now suffering without electricity from the devastation of Hurricane Sandy.

    What about the ones on the 8th?

    Our planet has been blessed so far that none of these massive explosions have been facing us. I just don’t think that blessing will last much longer and we will be plunged into darkness. For those who are prepping, keep on prepping. Just don’t forget those who want to prep but don’t have the resources to.

    No sane person would ask for, want or welcome a massive CME event, still there are times I find myself welcoming such an event. With 95% of the American people in denial that anything will ever change (a normality bias) I often feel like the Lone Ranger when I consider the issues facing America today. The DOD estimated that 80 plus percent of the American people would be dead within a year after a massive CME. Honestly I do not know if I or all of may family would survive such an event even though we are well prepared and live in a remote location. Living through such an event would be hard and what society would look like is difficult to know. One this is for certain the global normality bias would be changed for generations to come.
    Like it or not, believe it or not “something” is going to change in the foreseeable future, it will not matter if it is a socioeconomic collapse, a CME, nuclear war, magnetic pole shift or planetary axis shift. Any major event will collapse society as we know it today and the die-off will be beyond imagination. My hope is that I and the majority of my family will survive, just remember that “Hope” is all that you have left when all else is lost.

      I totally agree with you, MegaYacht. You must be mad to wish for a thing like that to happen, still I want to see the system collapse and just hope that the survivors will create a better world. In our present situation, nothing will happen, there is no willingness for radical change. The people willing and changing things are to few to make a difference.
