Hinode solar space mission celebrates 5-year anniversary. The Hinode (Japanese for "sunrise") spacecraft boasts ground-breaking discoveries about solar mysteries and carries instruments for high resolution images: the X-Ray Telescope (XRT), the Solar Optical Telescope (SOT), and the Extreme Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrometer (EIS).

Launched in the autumn of 2006, it has helped discover the origins of the solar wind and offered the first space-based measurements of the horizontal components of the sun's complex magnetic fields. Hinode has also helped find clues to explain why the corona's temperature is a 1000 times hotter than the sun's surface. In addition, the mission has focussed on the study of coronal holes, x-ray jets, "spicules", and "nano-flares". Interesting read...

Minor update added at 19:35 UTC on November 2, 2011:
Region 11339 has rotated fully into view revealing what is easily the largest area of any region during cycle 24.
This FKC region spans about 17 degrees longitudinally with nearly continuous penumbral coverage (more than 2000 mills).
There is a significant magnetic delta structure in the central southern part of the region and apparently a few smaller deltas elsewhere in the region.
This region has the potential to release very large flares (class X10+).
[link to www.solen.info]

well now, that tid bit of info almost deserves a thread of it's own
if anyone goes for it, let us know so we can head over and show our support :)

holy wow!
look at this region!
[link to www.solen.info]


BIG SUNSPOT:
A large sunspot group is rotating over the sun's northeastern limb, possibly signaling an uptick in solar activity.
Measuring some 40,000 km wide and at least twice that in length, the behemoth active region is an easy target for backyard solar telescopes.
Astronomers are encouraged to monitor the region: NOAA forecasters estimate a 60% chance of M-class solar flares during the next 24 hours.
Eruptions today would not be Earth directed, but future eruptions could be as the sunspot turns toward our planet in the days ahead.

Uranus Has a Bright New Spot, Picture Shows

In a surprise to astronomers, Uranus recently presented onlookers with a new spot on its northern hemisphere.

Near-infrared pictures from the 8.1-meter Gemini North Telescope in Hawaii have revealed a region on the giant planet that's much brighter than its surroundings.
 Quoting: observation


[link to news.nationalgeographic.com]

oh i know why:

Most people are unaware that we have no understanding of how lightning is created in clouds. The simplest answer is that lightning is not generated there at all. Clouds merely form a convenient path to Earth for electricity originating in space. Without clouds it is possible to have a "bolt from the blue". That is happening on Venus (although the sky certainly isn't blue). Weather systems are driven primarily by external electrical influences.

Consequently the Sun has weather patterns. And the most distant planet, Neptune, has the most violent winds in the solar system though it receives very little energy from the Sun. Electric discharges from space cause Mars' huge dust devils and planet-wide dust storms. They are responsible for Jupiter's Great Red Spot and the "spokes" in Saturn's rings. It is why Venus has lightning in its smog-like clouds and its mountain-tops glow with St. Elmo's fire. It is why the Earth has lightning stretching into space in the form of "red sprites" and "blue jets", and why tethered satellites "blow a fuse".

It is not well named because the name implies that the field lines have physical properties and "move" like massive particles or "snap" like elastic bands. However to claim that reconnection does not consider electric fields is just plain wrong.

If some of the theories presented in this forum about massive discharges have merit, they will also need some anomalous resistivity and electric fields.
 Quoting: IBEX quote


It is my understanding that the explosive discharge of a plasma double layer, due to the magnetic constriction shutting off current flow, will indeed cause the magnetic field to collapse and, after the discharge , the current/electric field will cease. But, I have not read of any reconnection of that specific magnetic field due to a reconnection of that specific plasma double layer and it's constituent current/electric field.

It is my understanding that the explosive phenomenon, seen on the sun and elsewhere, is a result of temporary magnetic disconnection/restriction of current/electric field flow.

How anyone came up with magnetic reconnection as a cause must be from complete ignorance of decades of plasma study.
 Quoting: observation


The main features of this phenomena are: a place where the magnetic field goes to zero in the plasma frame and there exist -strong electric fields- in the plasma frame, which accelerate charged particles.
 Quoting: IBEX quote


Well, that sounds kinda like what i have read, but is more of a mathematical explanation, and not very accurate as to what is happening...So where did the nonsense about "reconnection" come in? When a physical power line explodes, it does not magically reconnect! Are the people running these experiments, and who do not have an understanding of previous conclusions about plasma, wearing mathematical "blinders" attempting to shoehorn observations to fit the limited math models?

It is not "reconnection" that causes the explosive burst of electric energy, it is the disconnection of current flow, the resulting collapse of the magnetic field and the ensuing induced surge of current flow from that collapse, which manifests as an explosion.

On the sun another plasma double layer may be created near where one exploded, but that does not mean reincarnation of the one that exploded. Magnetic reconnection? Delusional nonsense.

Sunspot 1339:
60% chance of produching a M Flare
63% chance of produching a X Flare

Region 11339 [N19E72] rotated fully into view.
This is a compact region with a very high flare potential.
X class flares are possible, even X10+ events.
The region has a significant magnetic delta structure in the central part and several small deltas elsewhere.

Another paper in 1998 fro NRL mentions the Extreme Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (EIT) having contamination and burned-in spots on its detectors.

In 2004, a computer malfunction caused SOHO to shut down in safe mode and its pre-shutdown movie looks similar to what we're seeing now. Hopefully the GLP Effect will keep the satellite going for another two years.
