So COOL!!! About 1:09am, I lost internet connection (hasn't happened since last summer). So I go outside to watch for meteors. I see 7!!!!! in 30 minutes. I'm on the lawn chair, staring straight up. Feet pointed toward the east, head pointed toward the west. First two faint and to my right (south), one had a tail. Third one, faint and right above my head, rapid succession, number four to my left, (north) comes in BIG, expands and glows blue, dims and then expands again and glows green!!! It was so unusual I expected to hear an explosion. Wow, and this is only Wednesday. Can you imagine what Sunday and Monday night will be like? I think I'll throw a meteor spotting party. Last ten minutes nothing though :(

Yes indeed, both CMEs are slow, low-density puffs of plasma. Had the eruptions been from an M6 (or even a C6) instead of a B6, we might have real storm coming. The first 'glancing blow' CME may have an CIR or interact with the CH-HSS.

NOAA's Geospace Forecast-

The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels
through day one (08 Aug) and most of day two (09 Aug). The combined
effects from the arrival of the forecast glancing blow CME and the
sustained effects of the negative polarity CH are expected to bring
geomagnetic activity up to active levels by the end of day two into day
three (10 Aug). Conditions as high as isolated minor storm levels (NOAA
Scale - G1) are forecast due to the possible magnetic interaction.

Conditions should taper off throughout the day until late in the period
when the second CME is projected to arrive. Conditions are only
anticipated to return to active levels since the CH effects should be
decreasing and CME effects are expected to be weak.

Another filament channel eruption in the same location as yesterday's (AR1810). It's uncanny how the sun times these when the STEREO coronagraphs go offline...maybe ol' Sol is sentient and has a twisted sense of humor, hehe.

GONG Big Bear movie:

[link to halpha.nso.edu]

Hopefully SOHO will tell us if there's another Earth-'indirect'-directed CME component.

Just a few degrees to the north of 1810, new AR1813 has already been upgraded to beta-gamma. These two regions appear to me to be electro-magnetically connected.

NOAA 24 hr Summary...
Solar activity was very low. There were seven numbered regions on the
disk. Region 1813 (S13W15, Dao/Beta-gamma) was the only region that
showed significant changes
. While the overall area remained the same,
magnetic complexity went from a simple beta to a beta-gamma
. The other
regions were unremarkable. A new coronal mass ejection (CME) was
observed at ~07/1900 UTC in SOHO LASCO C2 and initially appears to have
an asymmetric partial halo signature with a bias to the south. This
event is believed to be associated with a filament eruption, when an ~10
degree filament lifted at around 07/1700 UTC from near S22W14. A long
duration B3 x-ray flare was also observed from Region 1810 (S25W20)
during that time frame. Initial analysis indicated a potential indirect
hit late on 10 Aug. Further analysis will be accomplished to narrow down
timing of arrival.

WEAKEST SOLAR CYCLE IN 100 YEARS-

What’s even weirder is that scientists, who aren’t usually shy about tossing hypotheses about, are at a loss for a good explanation. Three scientists, David Hathaway (NASA / Marshall Space Flight Center), Giuliana de Toma (High Altitude Observatory), and Matthew Penn (National Solar Observatory) presented possible explanations at this month’s meeting of the American Astronomical Society’s Solar Physics Division, but their results sparked a lively debate rather than a scientific consensus. (snip)

A Weak and Weird Cycle

Doug Biesecker (NOAA), chair of the most recent prediction panel, says, “I remain highly skeptical . . . [Even] if you believe there is a 100-year cycle, then that still doesn't tell us why. Just that it is.”

Penn offered another, more catastrophic option: the sunspot cycle might die altogether. His team uses sunspot spectra to measure their magnetic fields, and his data show a clear trend: the magnetic field strength in sunspots is waning.


Penn's research shows that sunspots' magnetic field strength is declining over time. Sunspots can only form if the magnetic field is greater than around 1,500 Gauss, so if the trend continues, we could be headed for a time where no spots appear on the Sun's surface.

“If this trend continues, there will be almost no spots in Cycle 25, and we might be going into another Maunder Minimum,” Penn states. The first Maunder Minimum occurred during the second half of the 17th century. Almost no spots were seen on the Sun during this time, which coincided with Europe’s Little Ice Age.

Interesting article. I do think there are some points to debate though, for example the article refers to the maximum having come and gone, and using the numbers already registered to compare to previous cycles.

Models indicate that the sunspot maximum is yet to occur [link to www.sidc.oma.be] (and the poles certainly haven't flipped yet) so the numbers may not end up being as below average as they seem thus far. The point being, much of the story is still yet to be written. We'll have to wait and see how it unfolds!

Are they deliberately putting out confusing and contradictory predictions? Or is this just the typical incompetence we've come to expect from our bloated bureaucratic alphabet-soup agencies?

NOAA's updated ENLIL model shows two CMEs and a double-humped density graph. We may be in for a stormy weekend, especially if the Bz tips south.

As I suspected, another weak CME from today's B4 LDE eruption. From what I can see on SOHO, this one seems even weaker than the others. That being said, the slow, pumping of solar plasma in Earth's direction could give us some sustained turbulent spaceweather...or not, hehe.

NOAA Update-

Solar Activity

.24 hr Summary...
Solar activity was very low. There were seven numbered regions on the
disk. Region 1813 (S13W15, Dao/Beta-gamma) was the only region that
showed significant changes, now a beta-gamma. All other regions were
unremarkable or in decay. A coronal mass ejection (CME), the third
within the past 48 hours, was observed at ~08/1800 UTC and associated
with a another filament eruption from near Region 1810 (S25W32), a very
similar transient to the 07 August event. Further analysis to determine
potential geoeffectiveness of this third event will commence once more
data becomes available.

[link to www.swpc.noaa.gov]

SOHO C2 movie shows yesterday's CME (looks nearly full-halo to me) and ends with the newest CME:

[link to sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov]

Now if we had a nice M-flare behind all of these weak flows we could get a real kick-in-the-pants. But as it stands, the x-ray flux is still comatose and most sunspots are in decay. Maybe 66's filament will give us a shock soon.

Are these divergent forecasts for the same CME? They give no indication. NOAA has already forecast the arrival of an earlier CME late on the 9th. Are they deliberately putting out confusing and contradictory predictions? Or is this just the typical incompetence we've come to expect from our bloated bureaucratic alphabet-soup agencies?

NOAA's updated ENLIL model shows two CMEs and a double-humped density graph. We may be in for a stormy weekend, especially if the Bz tips south.

Just to add to the mess, uh, I mean mix, Belgium's SIDC forecasts this CME arrival on the 12th....24 hours later than NASA/NOAAs's prediction.

COMMENT:There are currently 7 AR's on the solar disk. There was no flaring
above
C-class level, however a long duration B-flare (peak B6.3) from AR NOAA
1810 (Catania 56) resulted in a CME with an angular width of about 120
degrees and a speed of about 350 km/s as seen in LASCO C2 around 18:30 UT
on August 7th. Although this CME is mostly south bound a glancing blow is
likely. The estimated arrival time of this CME is August 12th around 02:30
UT.

Anybody else wanna take a guess? Maybe NINz can hold a contest, lol.

Howdy, Shad, nice old-school graphics there. I'll have to look into that 'plasma fountain'. Hope everything is well with you, amigo.

Oh, I have some good news--the SEEDS website is back online but no new data posted there yet.

Thought that was a fun term, plasma fountain.
That is good news and hoping you are good as well.
I'm ready to get into some solar renewal as I've got some renewed energy myself, been in a funk for awhile
“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.” – Carl Sagan
