[quote:Anonymous Coward 12644133:MV8xOTI4ODE0XzMzODIwMDAxXzQ5QjU1ODAz] DRACONID METEOR OUTBURST IS SUBSIDING: An outburst of more than 1000 meteors per hour on Oct. 8th is subsiding now. The Canadian Meteor Orbit Radar (CMOR) detected the surge in activity Monday around 16:00 UT as Earth was passing through a network of debris streams from comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner, source of the annual Draconid meteor shower. The outburst appears to have been caused by a filament of comet dust shed by Giacobini-Zinner in the year 1959. "This event follows in the grand tradition of short, intense Draconid outbursts," says Bill Cooke of NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office. Visual reports of the outburst are sparse, which suggests it was faint--i.e, better seen by a radar than by the human eye. http://spaceweather.com/archive.php?view=1&day=09&month=10&year=2012 AURORAS AND DINOFLAGELLATES: On Oct 7th, Frank Olsen went to the beach outside Sortland, Norway to photograph the colors of aurora borealis in the sky. He also found some strange colors at his feet. The beach was aglow with bioluminescent [b]dinoflagellates[/b]: http://spaceweather.com/archive.php?view=1&day=09&month=10&year=2012 For the next few nights, Draco the Dragon will be spitting out shooting stars, also known as meteors. The Draconid shower is predicted to produce the greatest number of meteors on the night of October 7, 2012. Watch for them first thing at nightfall. Fortunately, the waning gibbous moon will provide moon-free evenings for meteor watching tonight and tomorrow night. Oftentimes, this hard-to-predict shower doesn’t offer much more than a handful of languid meteors per hour. But watch out if the Dragon awakes! image http://en.es-static.us/upl/2012/10/11Oct08a_430.jpeg link http://earthsky.org/tonight/legendary-draconids-boom-or-bust [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XpZN4KjlJ6Q[/youtube] [/quote]
An X-2 class solar flare recently missed a direct impact with Earth.
Heliophysicists classify solar flares according to their brightness in X-ray wavelengths. C-class flares are the smallest on the scale, with X-ray measurements in the 10^-6 watts per square meter range (W/m^2), while X-class flares can exceed 10^-4 W/m^2. Why is that important?
An X-2 solar flare has enough energy to overload satellite circuits and disrupt other forms of communication should its full force be directed at Earth.
Modern astronomers believe that solar flares, or coronal mass ejections (CME), occur when magnetic reconnection events in the Sun’s atmosphere cause a short circuit in magnetic field lines. According to one theory, “magnetic energy” then accelerates the superheated gases into space. Although no one knows what “magnetic reconnection” is, it is the only explanation offered................
