In big solar flare eruptions, the deadly radiation from the Sun is expected to reach Earth on late Thursday and Friday. The solar flare event is believed to be the largest one with three eruptions in four years. Scientists believe that the biggest solar..

Wait till next year. Its important to keep watch on NASA's site they have like a solar weather report that is constantly updated. As well as purchasing gold sheets that can also be purchased through NASA as well as other 3rd party websites. Gold sheets are what NASA uses to protect their satellites and crafts from solar radiation. Don't be afraid.

This is a solar flare, not a CME (sorry, coronal mass ejection....I'm a geek), so I wouldn't expect too much disruption of telecoms, though GPS might get a bit unreliable. Might fuzz up your satellite TV too.

Bring on the aurora, my campchair is waiting.

The sun flares run in cycles of 11 years sapparently. They are not a thing to worry about, unless, like Chicken Licken, you think the sky is falling down.
What it means for the planet is that there will be fantastc displays of the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) so spectacular that they will be seen at more southerly latitudes than usual. This week, some people were lucky enough to report sightings of them in Ireland and in the North of England...( and Scotland?)

The Earth has endured solar flares of various intensity for years and we have experienced little damage if any for many years. Actually when I was a Radioman in the Navy we used short wave radio to commuicate ship to ship and ship to shore in that frequency range. Actually, communications was improved during solar
flares. We could use higher frequencies than normal. When frequency goes up background noise decreases. So we enjoyed bette communications during the flares. That was 1968 and we were at war in Vietnam.

So this is why my puter acted up all day yesterday and last nite and same with another person, we both were trying to gt on our work site at the same time and just couldn't get anywhere . I knew about the solar flares but forgot

sign up to this site and keep track of solar flares etc, so interesting it is.

I remember hearing something about this on a clear channel AM Canadian radio station with the claim that this could happen on or about 12/22/12, which is the last day of the Mayan calendar. Should such a storm become serious enough, it could destroy the entire power grid in a vast area and we could be without power for a very, very long time! I'm talking not hours or days, but likely months or even a few years.

Yes, we have these all the time. No, they usually aren't this big. Yes, it's different than 40 years ago because we now have these big holes in our ozone layer, which among other things, deflects solar radiation and protects us from it.

Wow, the comments here make no sense at all. A solar flare is a very normal event, which has been happening much longer than any of us have been around, and has very little real effect on us, thanks to our atmosphere. Its a great chance to view the northern lights, but hardly something to fret or get upset about, and it is highly unlikely that most anyone will even notice when it does hit.

I also heard thr very same thing. this broadcast said Our atmosphere has gotten so thin there are holes so that the flares can get through to earth..

I also beliieve I read that on that site. They said and this is Nasa, is only one way to protect the earth and that is to install some kind of anteas to deflect the flares but it will cost the US Billions. The US is too busy fighting over the spending of the money so it is not getting done.

I read everything about the Mayans and calendar. I also read a new report recently, sccientists believe they left in a hurry because of some kind of illness but evidence shows they did plan on coming back. so it is beleived most of them either died from illness or went somewhere else. as we know Mayan decendence are still in parts of the world and Peru

The world is not going to end in 2012. I don't beleive that . that is just all hype but I do wonder why the US government has built many shelters under ground in mountians in many parts of the US including under the new Denver airport according to reports i have read

Not saying this won't happen but we have nothing to fear if it does being it won't come close to Earth as they predict and if it should it was suppose to and that's how Life is..
A lot of things are going to come and go threw-out our Universe that is going to open up our awareness so hang in there and go with the flow..We all are going home to the Other side one way or another.

this is exactly what Governor Jesse Ventura found out. wish you could get channel OLN he is on there fir nits and does all the government investigations what they are doing or not doing and he interviewed FBI and they said I saw it and heard them say they cannot tell people dec 2012 is going to happen and they have proof of it, it will cause mass panics nd all these grids will be down maybe for years and there is a way to stop it by installing rods to at Haarp in Alaska to reflect the flares but it will cost billions and all the congressmen do is fight over it so it is not getting done and can't get it all installed now cause there is not enough time so yes according to Nasa and FBI Dec 2012 will happen

More powerful solar storms could cripple transformers and comunications equipment that could take months or years to replace.
NASA VIA GETTY IMAGES

Leading scientists are warning that a massive solar storm could trigger a $2 trillion “global Katrina” that short-circuits power grids worldwide.

“Power grids, air traffic control systems and intelligent transport systems need to be looked at,” Stephan Lechner, director of the European Commission Institute for Protection and Security of the Citizen, told a weekend meeting.

“And would our financial trading places have to shut down if the accuracy of the time stamp for an electronic order was not given any more?”

“This is not a matter of if, it is simply a matter of when and how big,” said Jane Lubchenco, head of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Both were speaking at a space weather session during the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

“There will be space weather storms that are more frequent and more powerful,” NOAA space scientist Joseph Kunches told the Star on Tuesday. “We’re entering a new solar season.”

Kunches is a former lead forecaster and operations chief at NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center, which tracks solar storms.

The 1989 solar storm that knocked out Hydro Quebec and cut power to six million people for nine hours on March 13 was during a previous peak in the solar storm cycle.

Five months later, another solar storm shut down the Toronto Stock Exchange.

Now, the stakes are higher.

Just what will be hit and how is part of what the scientists are debating.

“GPS is a critical part of almost everything we do,” Thomas Bogdan, director of the Space Weather Prediction Centre in Colorado, told the session.

“Every time you go to a gas station and purchase a gallon of gas with your credit card, that's a satellite transaction taking place.”

“How long can our telecommunications networks live without a time stamp” provided by GPS, Lechner asked.

“The potential vulnerability of our systems has increased,” Sir John Beddington, chief scientific adviser to the British government, told the weekend meeting.

Powerful solar flares ignite a geomagnetic storm that can shoot direct currents into the power grid, Kunches explained. The domino effect could cripple transformers and special equipment that could take months or years to replace, he said.

Power grids operate with expensive “not off-the-shelf” machinery. Hence, the $2 trillion price tag.

“The sun and its magnetic field become stronger and consequently more eruptive. If you take a magnetic field and change it, it generates an electrical current. The plasma is directed right at the earth. This is not far-fetched.”

Whether a climactic catastrophe will occur is “impossible to predict,” said Kunches.

But the growing volatility of the sun, the globe’s reliance on telecommunications and the need to protect power grids from a massive geomagnetic storm are very real.

“With hurricanes and tornadoes, there isn’t a necessity to explain it to people,” he said. “Space weather is so esoteric. Beyond the ability to see the auroras, it’s invisible to us.”

There are no TV shows that I want to watch this weekend. Also, because it is so cold outside, I will be indoors anyway so this may be a nonevent. Coincidently, I watched the movie "Knowing" last night that depicted a more Armaggedon-like outcome.

Remember Y2K? lol,lol

I do know this.




well that Canadian billonaire Maurice Strong said in the 70's another ice age was coming so guess that didn't make enough money so he came up with the global warming idea and he and Al Gore made billions and now this thing for 2012 , well he wants fast $$ now that he is in deep doo doo and in hiding in china so he is producing another scare to make a fast buck to




get out of yet another lie. One lie always turns to another lie. to get out of one he has to produce another. especially to make fast $$. They always say one must have a great memory to be a good liar. Many many scientists have disappeared since they proved the earth goes through cycles every 800 years of warming and cooling, if it didn't it would explode.. Rememebr the earth;s core is more than boiling by millions . of degrees C so if it didn't cool off, it would explode and it would have done this millions of years ago. Many many scienctists proved there was no such thing as gloabl warming. it is the 800 cycle the earth goes through. where are these scienctists now. Take a guess. I have read more info that they are no longer with us not in flesh anyeay. They had to shut heir mouths from telling us the truth, so put all the 2012 thing in the same light as well even tho some scientists say otherwise. How do we know they aren't being paid off big time to say and print the negatives.

so even tho I am a bit nervous, Hey, see you on New years 2013, then we will know . Then we will party in the meantime pray this is all another $$$ hoax which I beleive 98% of it is just as an excuse to get more tax money out of us.

y2k realy was an almost but I think a quite exaggerated as well.

If you beleive in the Bible God did promise he would never distory the earth by water again but he did promise it would be by fire next time and it is water the scientists are saying in that article, so think about it

fear can cause fear and I think government are tryingt to install fear in us once again. don;'t let it happen for the sake of greed from them for $$$

God did say when the time comes he would take all the good people up to heaven before. But I don;t see anyone disappearing and floating up in th sky towards heaven, do you? not yet anyway lol,lol and its is less than a year to happen so

think about it, common sense will save us all from going nuts with fear. There are more things to fear in this world like the sick who isn't ready to be sick or die because of it.

It's March and I didn't notice a difference, but not to say that someday it could be the end of the earth. Per the Bible, it's suppose to happen and the Lord will shield the earth for 3 days and 3 nights so we don't burn up.
