Stereo has been Updating for the last couple Hours [link to stereo-ssc.nascom.nasa.gov] [link to stereo-ssc.nascom.nasa.gov] and it shows the South-Western Ejection but the Mid-Northern Ejection has been amiss on the available Coronagraphs?

You can see the Ejection here [link to sdodata.oma.be] occurring literally just before the CME that is on Stereo...so,where is this ejection?

It couldn't have been fast enough to make it 'out of shot' as I saw Aheads Update around 06:55 and there was no CME headed North...I am befuddled.

Hello and thank you for posting your Daily Post Tinkus Maximussunhf

I can't believe he missed the obvious Mid-Northern Eruption also,it is clearly visible on the whole disc movie clips he uses...nevermind,it appears everything else failed to register this apart from the eyes of Spittin'Cesium,here it is plain as Day [link to sdodata.oma.be] on all these Channels [link to sdodata.oma.be] [link to sdodata.oma.be] [link to sdodata.oma.be]

And even on H alpha [link to halpha.nso.edu] But as I posted about earlier this has somehow gone missing on the Coronagraphs!?

Very strange...The ejection from the South-West is visible on the Coronagraphs but no sign of the Mid-Northern CME...I am at a loss.

Re: SOLAR WATCH * 312 M & 25 X FLARES starting 3-7-2011 (Updated Daily)
Funny you mention that now...I have just been trawling through some older Solar Data/Stats and concluded that the period around November 2011 resembled a Solar Max. in terms of Sunspot Number and Flare Output,here -

[link to www.solen.info] Note the Sunspot Number around 2011/11/06 is 209 which is higher than present.

I will post some of the images and data from that period to try and show that this cycle(as we know)is way,way off...here is the Sun as of November 6th 2011 [link to www.solen.info] Stats. page [link to www.solen.info] Note that the Southern CH is Blue(positive)and the North CH Red(negative) - Compare the CH Polarity with the present,I'll use the December Rotation to illustrate my point [link to www.solen.info] Yes,opposite.

Now some other images from the late 2011 period along with the page so that you can view the Stats. for yourselves -

Solar Image October 2011 [link to www.solen.info] and page [link to www.solen.info]

November 4th 2011 [link to www.solen.info] Stats. - The background x-ray flux is at the class C3 level.

At midnight UTC the visible solar disk had 9 spotted regions (in 2K resolution SDO images).

Region 11330 [N07W85] rotated partly out of view at the northwest limb.
Region 11332 [N32W54] was quiet and stable.
Region 11334 [N13W33] was quiet and stable.
Region 11336 [N15E13] decayed slowly and quietly.
Region 11337 [N18E27] developed slowly and was quiet.
Region 11338 [S13E43] was quiet and stable.
Region 11339 [N19E58] is a complex, compact, very large region with the potential to produce X10+ class flares. There is a significant magnetic delta structure in the central part and the region will likely continue to produce lots of flares. Flares: C4.4 at 00:18, C3.4 at 01:30, C2.9 at 03:25, C3.2 at 07:15, C2.1 at 09:44, C3.4 at 10:11, M2.5 at 11:11, C1.5 at 14:08, C3.8 at 14:54, C2.2 at 18:09, C4.5 at 18:53, impulsive major X1.9/2B at 20:27, C5.4/1N at 22:18, C9.2 at 23:13, M2.1 at 23:36 UTC. Initially it appeared as if a large CME observed late in the day was associated with the X1 event. However, the source of that CME was backsided.

Jumping forward to July 5th 2012 [link to www.solen.info] [link to www.solen.info] Stats. - The background x-ray flux is at the class C5 level.

At midnight UTC the visible solar disk had 11 spotted active regions (in 2K resolution SDO images).

Region 11512 [S15W84] added trailing spots and was quiet.
Region 11513 [N15W37] decayed slowly and remains capable of producing C and M class flares. Flare: M1.8/2N at 16:39 UTC. This event was associated with a very weak type II radio sweep and a small CME. The CME was observed off the east limb in STEREO-A and west limb in STEREO-B and could reach Earth on July 7. The CME was not easily observed in LASCO imagery.
Region 11514 [S16W36] decayed slowly and quietly.
Region 11515 [S18W25] displayed impressive development in the central spot section. Several magnetic delta structures are evident as negative polarity spots are trapped inside positive polarity flux. This has caused a significant increase in the background x-ray level. There's a high probability of major M or X class flares. Flares: C5.1/1F at 01:45, C6.1 at 04:10, M2.3 at 04:37, C6.7 at 09:06, major M5.3/2B at 09:55, C5.8 at 11:17, C5.6 at 14:13, M1.3/1F at 14:40, C8.2 at 14:49, C6.4 at 15:50, C6.9 at 16:12, C9.5 at 21:27, M4.6 at 22:09, C7.4 at 22:45, M1.2 at 23:55 UTC.
Region 11516 [N12W53] decayed slowly and quetly.
Region 11517 [N19W13] decayed slowly and quietly.
New region 11518 [N09E68] rotated into view on July 3 and was numbered by SWPC the next day.
New region 11519 [S15E76] rotated into view with a single spot. (I can clearly remember AR1515(Isis)as she put out a great show)

July 6th [link to www.solen.info] Stats. - The background x-ray flux is at the class C2 level.

At midnight UTC the visible solar disk had 14 spotted active regions (in 2K resolution SDO images).

Region 11513 [N15W51] decayed losing most of the small spots and simpified magnetically. The single penumbra was mostly unchanged.
Region 11514 [S18W49] decayed further and could soon become spotless.
Region 11515 [S17W38] lost a few spots and what was a major magnetic delta decreased in size and importance. There are currently small magnetic delta structures in all large penumbrae. M class flares are highly likely and there's a chance of an X class flare. Flares: M1.2 at 00:38, M3.7 at 01:10, M1.2 at 01:31, C9.9 at 01:41, C8.1 at 02:05, C7.9 at 02:26, M3.3 at 02:42, M1.1 at 03:31, M7.8 at 03:36, M3.0 at 03:42, M1.1 at 04:45, C8.5 at 05:05, M1.2 at 06:53, M1.6 at 07:45, C8.0 at 09:30, M2.3 at 10:48, C9.2 at 10:56, M8.7 at 11:44, M1.4 at 13:20, C9.5 at 13:55, C8.4 at 14:46, C6.1 at 15:59 ... UTC. In addition 2 M and several C flares were recorded later in the day. The flare list is according to SDO/SAM/EVE 1 minute measurements.
Region 11517 [N19W26] added a few spots but lost mature penumbra.
Region 11518 [N09E53] was quiet and stable.
Region 11519 [S16E62] was quiet and stable.

Anyway,I'll stop there(excuse me folks)I am pretty sure you get the point I am trying to make...I invite anyone to go back and view other Dates ranging from around October/November 2011 through Mid 2012 and note the Magnetic Complexity of the Active Regions,the SS Number and output in X-Rays as well as the SW Speeds and migrating CHs' and I think you may conclude the same as I am beginning to - That Solar Max. happened already though we may get another short round if the Solar output in X-Rays increases and the Sunspot count goes above the November 2011 high of 209.

One more link I think very important for this issue is a Plot of the Sunspot Number to CME Ratio since 1997,here [link to www.sidc.oma.be] the obvious thing to note from that is the apparent lack of correlation of CMEs' to Sunspot Numbers with the CME count being around the same if not more than the last Cycle - This I find very intriguingscratching

 Quoting: Da fuq


Why do you conclude that the deviation of this Cycles(Min. and Max.)comparative Magnetism compared to the last Cycles does not potentially represent a overall Minimum(akin to the Maunder)but you still say to expect the Earth-Facing quiet to continue Sol'Bro'?

The Maunder Minimum is one of the longer known periods of quiet but there is also the 'Dalton Minimum' of the 1700's,here - 'The Dalton Minimum was a period of low solar activity, named for the English meteorologist John Dalton. Like the Maunder Minimum and Spörer Minimum, the Dalton Minimum coincided with a period of lower-than-average global temperatures. The Oberlach Station in Germany, for example, experienced a 2.0° C decline over 20 years. Less severe than the Maunder minimum of the 1600s, a period with what was to be a long period of a sunspotless sun. It was nonetheless a cold era.' [link to images.intellicast.com] .

Other interesting factoids relating to the apparent similarities between the build up and arrival of the Dalton Min. are the SS Numbers of the prior Cycles marked out here [link to images.intellicast.com] [link to images.intellicast.com] - Excuse the fact that the dates span to 2010,these are from a article from 09,a period where a prolonged Spotless period led to the temporary collapse of our upper Atmospheres.

I'll quote some of the page and then post the link,you will find it of much use I think Da'Fuq -

November 9th 2009
---------------------

'The cycle was also very long. Minimum was likely reached in December, making the cycle 12.7 years long. The two prior cycles have been 10.3 and 9.7 years. Often cycles shorter than 10.5 years are stronger cycles with greater warmth, those greater than 11 years, weaker and colder. Short cycles herald a warm global temperature indicator. The Dalton Minimum it was thought started with a skipped solar cycle and coincided with a very long solar cycle 4 from 1784-1799. Usoskin (2001) in this paper believe they may have found a lost cycle in that period due to partly unreliable observations. It appears to have been a very weak cycle. This is the general belief of cycle lengths since the middle 1700s - Note the similarity of the last four cycles to the first four cycles leading into the Dalton Minimum.' - Recommended Reading [link to www.intellicast.com] <--- Read itsun

On the potential outcome of observed decrease in overall Magnetism of Sunspots over a 15 Year Period and the projected outcome if the observed decrease continued on par,two NSO Astronomers came to the conclusion that by 2015 Sunspots could all but disappear until the elusive process that actually drives our Stars Magnetic Cycle once again kicked itself back into action.

Here is the Snip -

So, what does this lack of sunspot activity on the sun really mean? The answer is still unknown but there is one thing that we do know. We know that there was only one scientific paper that predicted this current trend in sunspot activity before it all began.

However, the paper was ridiculed after it was released in 2005 and denied publication.
The paper was released during the active sun in 2005 and the scientific community rejected the paper as being too controversial. Eventually published in EOS in July 2009.

This controversial paper was based on the research of a pair of astronomers from the National Solar Observatory (NSO) at Kitt Peak in Tucson, Arizona, William Livingston and Matthew Penn.

The researchers looked at magnetic changes in the sun by analyzing data from sunspot observations over a 15-year period from 1990 to 2005. In total, over 1000 sunspots were measured. It was certainly a small sample size but nevertheless the researchers did discover an interesting trend.

Livingston and Penn discovered that the magnetic field of sunspots were decreasing rapidly in 2005 from observations made in the late 1990’s. A projection of a continued decline in the magnetic field of sunspots would mean that by 2015 there would be no visible sunspots on the face of the sun.

So, the solar cycle would effectively be “put on hold” in the year 2015. It would remain on hold until the unknown mechanism driving the process decided to start up again. The result is that by 2015 there would be no visible sunspots.

The conclusion of their research was certainly controversial and it was also the title of their work: “Sunspots may vanish by 2015". It should again be noted that their paper only considers data from 15 years worth of sunspots, that’s only just a little more than one cycle. Data over several sunspot cycles could certainly be seen as more conclusive in the scientific community

Conclusion -

'However, what if the conclusions in the paper are correct and we are about to enter a sunspot minimum with the regular sunspot cycle placed on hold in a few years time? After all, it has happened before during both the Maunder and Dalton Minimums and our current sunspot activity is certainly trending that way.

It would mean much colder times lie just ahead on a scale that would mean devastation for agriculture and the global economy. Indeed, the problem will become even worse if billions of dollars were already being spent in an attempt to prevent a future global warming event

It's not actually all a Coronal Hole(yet,it could form,could)only the Northern-most that appears pitch dark is the main region of the Coronal Hole - The original 'BigBird Coronal Hole' -

A little juice on Betelgeuse's possible future Magnetic Smash-up -

'A faint linear bar of dust is illuminated at left [link to www.herschel.caltech.edu] and may represent a dusty filament connected to the local galactic magnetic field, or the edge of an interstellar cloud. If so, then Betelgeuse's motion across the sky implies that the arcs will hit the wall in 5,000 years time, with the star itself colliding with the wall 12, 500 years later' [link to www.herschel.caltech.edu] .
