Should the GRID get rattled, I refuse to think of it as DOOM. I refuse to project this "thought-reaction" into my reality.

[...] geomagnetic storms can occur at any point in the solar cycle, and not all solar flares or coronal mass ejections will trigger a storm. Most of them, after all, will be pointed away from Earth. Of the earthbound ones, the damage they do depends on, among other things, the polarity of the magnetic field carried by the solar wind. If the polarity is the same as that of Earth's magnetic field, most of the particles will be deflected harmlessly into space.

umm..does anyone know what the polarity is on this one??

SOLAR DOOM...cont'd ( this is from IEEE, not a bunch of kooks)

Luminous fingers of intense red, green, and violet light flicker and pulse across the northern and southern skies like a vast cosmic conflagration. Within minutes, millions of people are tweeting, texting, and blogging about the wondrous sight. But then the sky turns a deep blood red, and fascination turns to panic.
Linked to the celestial spectacle are enormous fluctuations of the magnetic field in Earth's magnetosphere, which are causing immense flows of electric current in the upper atmosphere over much of the planet. Those huge currents disturb Earth's normally quiescent magnetic field, which in turn induces surges of current in electrical, telecommunications, and other networks across entire continents. Streetlights flicker out; electricity is lost. A massive planetary blackout has occurred, leaving vast swaths of North and South America, Europe, Australia, and Asia without power.
Within a few months, the crisis has deepened. In many areas, food shortages are rampant, drinking water has become a precious commodity, and patients in need of blood transfusions, insulin, or critical prescription drugs die waiting. Normal commerce has ground to a halt, replaced by black markets and violent crime. As fatalities climb into the millions, the fabric of society starts to unravel.

Howdy, RTShi. Yes, usually like polarities repel each other. When the Bz field element goes south we have the best chance for ground currents and aurorae. However, recent discoveries prove this is not always the case.

"The size of the breach took researchers by surprise. "We've seen things like this before," says Raeder, "but never on such a large scale. The entire day-side of the magnetosphere was open to the solar wind."
The circumstances were even more surprising. Space physicists have long believed that holes in Earth's magnetosphere open only in response to solar magnetic fields that point south. The great breach of June 2007, however, opened in response to a solar magnetic field that pointed north.
"To the lay person, this may sound like a quibble, but to a space physicist, it is almost seismic," says Sibeck. "When I tell my colleagues, most react with skepticism, as if I'm trying to convince them that the sun rises in the west.""

SOLAR ENERGETIC PARTICLE EVENT EFFECTS-

NASA expert..CME is .."similar to a French croissant".



[link to www.youtube.com]

Serious U.S. Department of Homeland Security Business

Solar Energetic Particle Event ( SEPE ) effects on Earth and mankind are understood by professionals who are familiar with the damages caused by them, however very few citizens know about this, and even fewer know ’what to be preparing for’ is coming very soon that will impact their lives.

While a Solar Energetic Particle Event on Earth is ‘not doomsday with a crash and bang’, many will soon realize it comes with ‘no warning’ and is ‘extremely silent’ on ‘large sections of populations’ whom never even knew - let alone expected – what a Solar Energetic Particle Event ( SEPE ) really means for those living in modern day society.

Masses of people will be ‘immediately confused’, ’not fully understanding’ what has happened to them all when nothing electrical operates for a long period of time.

Experiencing ‘no electricity’ will be ‘totally foreign’ for many so, it becomes ‘vitaly important’ to begin learning today ‘how to prepare to survive’ within a ‘not too distant future society’ that has been instantly seperated from all modern day conveniences they had lived with for decades.

Sound impossible or ridiculous? Try telling the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, who knows what is coming soon, that it is impossible and ridiculous and see what they tell you!

Instead, it becomes logical, even the perfect tool of power-seeking megalomaniacs.

Communism or more accurately, socialism, is not a movement of the downtrodden masses, but of the economic elite."

just a little note so i can share some news that excited me :)
the Solar Alerts Blog got 8,701 hits in the last 24hrs

wooohoooo!

Uh-oh! I just realized the ACE satellite is offline again--just like the last PROTON STORM in January. This is not good. Our two most important solar satellites are both orbiting in the L1 orbit (1 million miles out). SOHO & ACE (Advance Composition Explorer) are both very old-age by satellite standards and the entire planet is now reliant on them for real-time crucial data. If ACE goes down, it's like we had an eye poked out....and if SOHO goes down, too, it's like the "Moe Howard double-eye-poke" (ouch!) Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk.

The problem is....ALL of our most advanced space weather prediction models are based on the ACE data stream. AND, all of our most advanced CME models are based on the SOHO imagery. I was astounded when I looked into this, but even Russia and China base all of their space weather forecasts on NOAA and NASA data. This is what proved to me once and for all we have a NEW WORLD ORDER; when I realized that Chinese and Russian military/spy satellites are openly using the space assets paid for by the American taxpayers!!!!

My point is....if the ACE data stops or is corrupted (and to a lesser extent, SOHO), we'll be like a blind man in the dark with feeler-stick. The NICT simulation and the bow-shock simulation are completely dependent on up-to-date ACE sensor data.

Geez the timing couldnt be worse. My daughter has a flight from Fl to Tn tomorrow at 12:30, lands at 2pm. She just called me cause she saw this on the news and is freakin out.

Arent planes that are flying closer to the poles more likely to be affected?

I would assume the airlines monitor this stuff and would postpone the flight if there was going to be a problem.

Anyone have any input???
