I'm seeing another spike in the ACE Protons (the orange and red energy levels). I will now predict a large flare in the next 20-30 mins. Just testing my new theory live on GLP.

it all depends what is in the way.

if you put a cup of water in a microwave oven and turn it on, it will heat up the water.

if you don't put a cup of water in a microwave oven and turn it on, nothing will happen, but the microwave has behaved in exactly the same way in both instances.

the sun is neither hot or cold, but we are.

The new active region 1478 in the south is connected to 1477 (NOAA's about 3 days late on this one). AR1479 is now 3 medium-sized spots (I assume NOAA is referring to the most westward spot we noted 2 days ago). AR1480 is almost non-existent now. AR 1481 (don't tell NOAA!) is at least one spot coming over the SE limb now....in several days, NOAA may notice it. The new SE spot is of interest because we've seen several flares and a CME from there in recent days.

Preview of May 20th Solar Eclipse-

Eclipse-lovers haven't experienced a "central" solar eclipse from U.S. soil in nearly two decades (1994, to be exact). But those of you out west will soon have a good chance of seeing one on May 20, 2012, when the path of an annular eclipse covers a wide swath from northern California to the Texas Panhandle.

May's event is called an annular or "ring" eclipse because the Moon passes directly in front of the Sun but will cover only 88% of it. The undersize lunar disk results because the eclipse occurs just one day after the Moon reaches apogee, the most distant point in its orbit around Earth. So the black lunar silhouette will appear completely surrounded by the Sun's disk from a generously wide path that's at least 150 miles (240 km) across. Astronomers refer to this kind of incomplete lunar shadow as an antumbra.(snip)

Although there has been some decay on 1476's trailing spots, it continues to be an active beta-gamma-delta region.

Still a good chance of significant flares today:

Like clockwork, SOHO & STEREO A have ceased near-time images. This frustrates me to no end and it seems to happen 9 out of 10 times when there's a CME. It's as if old Sol knows what NASA's downlink schedule is and tries to sneak one in on us, LOL.

STEREO B is showing a smallish (although nothing is small w/ the Sun) CME pulse, which methinks is from the earlier LDE C-flare from 1476. Even tho it's small, it's pointed right down our throat. If I'm correct, a much bigger CME will be evident later from the filament eruption.

this is so true...


IBEX & FLUFF UPDATE: The Sun Has No Bow-Shock!

IBEX’s novel imaging technique has unleashed one surprise after another. Now principal investigator David McComas (Southwest Research Institute) and 10 colleagues have turned IBEX's attention to the Sun's motion through space. It turns out that the Sun is moving through interstellar gas at 52,000 mph, about 12% slower than previously measured by the Ulysses spacecraft.

So what does the new model look like? IBEX's observations confirm that the Sun is still moving (albeit slowly) through the Local Interstellar Cloud, a fluff of higher density gas roughly 30 light-years across. Combined with a relatively strong interstellar magnetic field, the Sun's slower advance is no longer enough to push interstellar gas into a bow shock. At best, it makes a "bow wave," a region of slightly increased density — more like a fast-moving boat than a fighter jet. This means a significant change in how scientists think about the Sun and its interaction with the stuff beyond its influence.

"It's too early to say exactly what this new data means for our heliosphere. Decades of research have explored scenarios that included a bow shock. That research now has to be redone using the latest data," says McComas.

There is a sundiving comet on Lasco C2 at about the 7 oclock position. It looks like it will pass directly in front of Venus.

It is also barely visible on Lasco C3.

You will have to go into the SOHO movie theater to see it moving.

Pretty cool, I think.

Nice catch AC. It's Jupiter in the FOV, not Venus, if that's what you meant. In C2 the comet first appears right next to the "8" at 13:48. In C3 it's almost to the acculting disk as of 16:54, quite faint as AC states.

So, there is empirical verifiable data from IBEX that the interstellar cloud is having an impact on the sun? Maybe, I am just behind the times here, but Wow, this is beyond a conspiracy theory at this point. I am assuming that we, as in NASA or tptb, really do not know what to expect from this phenomena in regards to the sun or earth? IMHO, if there was ever a reason to prepare it is this, and it is now. I am just floored at this revelation.

IBEX & FLUFF UPDATE: The Sun Has No Bow-Shock!

IBEX’s novel imaging technique has unleashed one surprise after another. Now principal investigator David McComas (Southwest Research Institute) and 10 colleagues have turned IBEX's attention to the Sun's motion through space. It turns out that the Sun is moving through interstellar gas at 52,000 mph, about 12% slower than previously measured by the Ulysses spacecraft.

So what does the new model look like? IBEX's observations confirm that the Sun is still moving (albeit slowly) through the Local Interstellar Cloud, a fluff of higher density gas roughly 30 light-years across. Combined with a relatively strong interstellar magnetic field, the Sun's slower advance is no longer enough to push interstellar gas into a bow shock. At best, it makes a "bow wave," a region of slightly increased density — more like a fast-moving boat than a fighter jet. This means a significant change in how scientists think about the Sun and its interaction with the stuff beyond its influence.

"It's too early to say exactly what this new data means for our heliosphere. Decades of research have explored scenarios that included a bow shock. That research now has to be redone using the latest data," says McComas.

This is amazing! Our sun is moving 12% slower and no bow shock! Wow....learned a lot today! I wonder if it will continue to slow. That would explain the anomalous proton storms. Space proton storms instead of from sun.

So, there is empirical verifiable data from IBEX that the interstellar cloud is having an impact on the sun? Maybe, I am just behind the times here, but Wow, this is beyond a conspiracy theory at this point. I am assuming that we, as in NASA or tptb, really do not know what to expect from this phenomena in regards to the sun or earth? IMHO, if there was ever a reason to prepare it is this, and it is now. I am just floored at this revelation.

Actually, they said this back in January. Just like they released an image of US passing through the 'Fluffy' back in 2002. We have been passing through this particular ISM for tens of thousands of years, no matter what someone on the internet told you. It's on the video;

It has all the Solar information to die for. Instead of going to various sources, this place has it all on 1 page. Also, it has banners for your websites and widgets for your computers/Mobile phones...

Great website.....and no, I have nothing to do with it. I found it accidently by this thread....

Sun velocity...

Link to abstract... "The Heliosphere's Interstellar Interaction: No Bow Shock"
[link to www.sciencemag.org]

"As the Sun moves through the local interstellar medium, its supersonic, ionized solar wind carves out a cavity called the heliosphere. Recent observations from the Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) spacecraft show that the relative motion of the Sun with respect to the interstellar medium is slower and in a somewhat different direction than previously thought. Here, we provide combined consensus values for this velocity vector and find that they have important implications for the global interstellar interaction. In particular, the velocity is almost certainly slower than the fast magnetosonic speed, with no bow shock forming ahead of the heliosphere as was formerly widely expected.

Received for publication 24 February 2012.
Accepted for publication 19 April 2012."

Nowhere do the articles or abstract say that the sun is slowing down. What they say is that a new study utilizing IBEX data indicates that the sun's relative velocity is less than that previously theorized from Ulysses and other data, slow enough that no shock wave is formed. New satellite, new data, new analysis, new conclusions, new theory.

No doom. At most, opposing camps of scientists will form scurmish lines defending their respective theories with blazing sliderules until, in turn, new data, new models and new conclusions come along to displace those currently thought of as cutting edge.

There is a band called 1476 with a song called Swallow the Sun

I came to the same consclusion. The Interstellar cloud is slowing the passage of our solar system through space. It is compressing it as expected.
Everything that was being predicted is happening.
Not good.
