I think that the recent increasing solar activity is really exciting indeed. I'm now literally dancing in glee.5a
 Quoting: Solar Guardian


But I think the solar activity has reduced then the March'12. Pls let me know if I am wrong.

Hugh - Why have they abondoned ? Do you think Solar activity is increasing???. I feel otherwise.an occasional M flare.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 6491380


Oh, Lockedhead/Solarsoft? I was just joking because they get sloppy and retarded in their data sometimes. I pointed out that they were over 24 hours behind in their flare list yesterday and hours behind GLP in posting any info on the first M-flare.

As far as Cycle 24's activity level, it's too soon to make any judgments. The Helio-eggheads are still publishing papers on the LAST solar cycle. The more I read and the more I observe the Sun, the more obvious it becomes that the Phd's and NASA /NOAA whitecoats aren't really sure about anything concerning the Sun's energies or processes. It's all one theory after another, until the next data set comes along and blows away that theory and they dream up some new theory. I understand that this is the "professional" scientific method at work, but these guys don't impress me with their titles and resumes; and then talk down to the public like they know every thing. They don't...not even close.
rant

Please excuse the rant, but we have to watch solar activity as a kind of weather system-a super-complicated one, driven by electro-magnetism, nuclear forces, electrical currents, and, who knows, maybe even a super-consciousness. My point is, you can have a nice pleasant week of weather and out of the blue hailstones and tornadoes. In 2014, if we're still here, we can look back and have a better analysis of what Cycle 24 was like. There have been cycles in the past which had two separate peaks of activity a year apart. One thing I know is that Old Sol is unpredictable at this point in our human understanding. And I guess that applies to all the further-out stars, too. This is why we observe...to increase our understanding and have fun doing it.

Yes, the IBEX mission has shattered many long-held "truths" by making new types of observation and bringing forth astounding new data. This is exactly the type of thing I was referring to in the previous post. Theories which have been embraced and accepted for many years are proven incorrect or, at best, are on shaky ground due to new and unforeseen discoveries which conflict with them. So new theories need to be formed and yet more data gathered to affirm or disprove them, too. And round and round we go, haha. It's called "progress".

We've seen many other Sun-Earth discoveries (THEMIS, CLUSTER, etc.) in recent years which have sent the space scientists scurrying to amend their out-moded models of the magnetosphere, the solar wind, filament formation, etc. Even the sun's flares aren't fully understood yet. Heliophysicists are still unable to explain why the corona is so much hotter than the surface and by what process this happens. We really know next-to-nothing. Unfortunately, somebody stumbled on a way to split the atom.

As for IBEX, it's discoveries are important and instead of answers we now have a new list of questions. I'm not a schooled physicist, so I'm not qualified to evaluate the methods and data. It seems to show that our models of the universe were based on false assumptions. It's also possible the IBEX teams conclusions are off the mark, too. More missions and more observations are needed before we can see things clearly regarding the outer heliosphere and nearby interstellar space.

Howdy, Nerdrage! hi Right back at ya, SunBro. I think I found out why Spaceweather.com goofed up on their M-flare story. THEY TRUSTED NASA/LOCKHEED, LOL. I was surprised when I went back to check the Solarsoft site and they had one set of coordinates listed for the M-flare but their movie links pointed to a region half-way across the sun. TS66 was on it right away (kudos, 66!) and identified the source of the flare. Evidently hours went by before they figured things out. The SECOND M-flare was also mislabeled.For this there's no excuse! They should be monitoring GLP's Solar Watch more closely and possibly get a clue. Maybe they turn the science over to the MIT, Harvard, Cornell interns for the summer, haha. Sometimes I really have to wonder what goes on in these great centers of solar science.
(Hey, NOAA, see we're not just picking on you guys. There's plenty of incompetence to go around.):)

By the way, we have two more active regions to watch out for. One on the NE limb which seems to be interacting with 1504 and 1505. And new, rapidly emerging region in the far south at about approximately 50 degrees east longitude.

Recent Intensitygram:

I think they're going back to correct the earlier two. Also, spaceweather.com has posted a corrected story at the top of the page (and no mention of their crap story about M-flares springing from "a new region near 1499" or some such nonsense...WRONG HEMISPHERE TIMES TWO!! sheesh.)

These orgs. should consider drafting some GLP Suntards to act as a third eye (or a first eye as in this case, haha)

Agreed. Good morning to you also.hf I want to congratulate you on your big scoop yesterday regarding the first M-flare (and the 2nd too). You out-sleuthed NASA, Lockheed, and Spaceweather.com who all seemed mystified for most of the day. I was busy yesterday and didn't realize all this confusion was going on. You nailed it right away, TruthSeeker, and the pros all had egg on their face. Great job, as usual.

I have to take a nap now, but please read my last several posts regarding this.
Have a wonderful day and keep up the great work. Peace.

No sign of the small CME shock which was forecast for 3:23UT today. It's either coming in late or was a clean miss.

I don't believe they are incompetent either, just that it is somewhat disconcerting that they are not using their own technology to report accurately. Let's face it, knowing which sunspot just blew off the latest big flare is pretty important considering it gives us advanced warning of whether the resulting CME is directed at/or to what extent it will impact the earth (or not).

Point taken, Onthehook. I suppose "incompetent" may have been an imprecise term to express my meaning. Of course NASA and Lockheed are unsurpassed in their engineering, launching, and maintaining communication with a wide variety of satellites and space probes (and space weapons). Obviously they're not incompetent in this regard, but at the apex of human technological know-how.

The incompetence I was referring to can be more accurately characterized as UNCARING, INATTENTIVE or LAZY. These attributes seem to be endemic to most large bureaucratic organizations. The young go-getters, eager to make their mark, come up against the HUGE GREY WALL of bureaucracy and organizational hierarchy. Usually the grey wall wins and apathy sets in as a matter of course. Folks tend to go-along-to-get-along, punch the clock and go home. When slip-ups occur, it's "not my job", or someone else's fault. NASA is a huge government agency and Lockheed is probably 50x huger (a shadow-government agency spanning the globe). Yesterday's miscue was not a simple error or glitch soon corrected, but a glaring blunder which went uncorrected for 15 hours or more. I'm only sharing my astonishment at this, but it's possible there were extenuating circumstances that we'll never learn about. I'd like to think that the pros are more attentive and reliable than GLP, and I was stunned and thrilled that we got it right and got it immediately right.

Still watching for possible CME effects. I'm pretty sure that the first one (which was expected to arrive 24 hrs. ago) missed Earth altogether. I won't be too surprised if the second one also misses. ACE solar wind data shows a slight uptick in density, so we'll wait and see what develops.

We seem to be seeing some effects from the CME arrival at Earth.

Boulder's Magnetometer shows a K=index of 4.1 (no alerts so far):

Active region 1504 (and '05) seem to be growing. I expect to see more M-flares and possibly X-flares.

NASA's SDO website's "latest image" of composite w/ mag-field lines is dated June 3rd! More than a week old!!! Please note the Lockheed logo in the lower right-hand corner. I guess they're very busy getting ready for World War IV.
