This is a screenshot from shortly after yesterday's impact. Lots of pressure pushing the magnetopause within the geosynchronus orbit.
Mpause

This screenshot is from 20:24 UTC, about 10 hours later.
mpause1

And this one is from 23:40 UTC.
:mpause2:

NICT is still unavailable or I would try to find to find corresponding data so we might get some insights. NASA's data is pretty accessible on the web; however they don't any tutorials on interpreting their arcane graphs, glyphs, and models. All their educational stuff seems aimed at 5th-graders. Everything else must be cleared by secret-handshakes, LOL.
 Quoting: Hugh M Eye


Question (I know, I'm new here...):
Are the breaches & cracks in the earth's magnetosphere the result of these magnetic reconnections?



from NiN's blog:

[link to mysolaralerts.blogspot.co.nz]

"Also lets note that there was a lot of CMEs between July 4th and today, July 7th, that could have been caught up at least partially in a magnetic connection between earth and the sun. thus we could see some mass from these CMEs being caught up with the earth directed CME's and giving a combined hit."
 Quoting: Parvati


yes they are
"In 1961, Jim Dungey of the Imperial College, United Kingdom, predicted that cracks might form in the magnetic shield when the solar wind contained a magnetic field that was oriented in the opposite direction to a portion of the Earth's field. In these regions, the two magnetic fields would interconnect through a process known as "magnetic reconnection," forming a crack in the shield through which the electrically charged particles of the solar wind could flow."
[link to science.nasa.gov]

here is a great report from 2008 talking about when the guys at THEMIS discovered this
"The event began with little warning when a gentle gust of solar wind delivered a bundle of magnetic fields from the Sun to Earth. Like an octopus wrapping its tentacles around a big clam, solar magnetic fields draped themselves around the magnetosphere and cracked it open. The cracking was accomplished by means of a process called "magnetic reconnection."
[link to science.nasa.gov]
 Quoting: NiNzrez


Heya NiNz : )

I was wondering if you can remember the so called 'Magnetosphere Reversal' as it appeared at the time from the raw data and if so,was there an official explanation for this as I can't remember ever getting one?

Here is the data in the video below.

[link to www.youtube.com]

Anyone know what made that appear as it did?

I'm pretty sure the Satellite was'nt rotating at the time either.
 Quoting: Spittin'Cesium


Above is my post from March 13. It took an hour to find it as we burned thru a 100 pages from March 4-13th. No, I don't think NASA issues "official explanations" for every odd image or technical glitch or YouTube upload. These images occurred during a G3/K=7 geomagnetic storm. The ACE satellite was put in safe mode due to the intense proton storm and the NICT simulation was subsequently shut down due to bad ACE data. I imagine the NASA model was also using ACE data (in whole or in part). My top theory would be bad data from ACE screwed up the computer models....garbage in>garbage out. People forget these are COMPUTER MODELS, not a real-life picture of the magnetosphere. It would also make sense for NASA to scrub erroneous data from their archives....they are, among other things, a scientific research institution and wouldn't want to disseminate corrupt data.

I'm tired, so I'll stop here, but I have more to say later.....maybe.

 Quoting: psyoptics


I have some ideas.
Seriously.
But they are just my ideas.
I believe that they have found something out there.
Something that maybe even they do not yet understand, but something that is a threat.
Think of all the information sources that have been diluted or simply shut down.
I bet we could all name a bunch.
I have been reading spaceweather.com for many years now.
But recently I feel like I'm entering Mr. Roger's neighborhood.
"Isn't this pretty! Look at the pretty photos! This will an exciting ..."
I can't say as I blame them.
If you look at all the madness and crazy endtimes reactions, it's easy to understand why they don't want to add fuel to the fire.
The trouble is that more obfuscation only forces us to rather spurious sources.
Who can we trust?

I have some ideas about what they found, but at this point they are just ideas.
However, I believe it has something to do with unwanted particles getting into these cracks in the magnetosphere and become toxic. Gamma rays seem to be of an inordinate interest to them. Why spend millions on arrays of gamma ray detectors and IBEX & THEMIS when the infrastructure of the country is collapsing and the thieves at Goldman Sachs are allowed to rob with no consequence?

Why have they ignored Fukushima? And then of course, there are the vast undergrounds not only in the USA, but also in Russia and China. Why is China building so many empty cities? All of this kinda stinks, doesn't it? No access to recent research and ... what are we to think?

So we watch the Sun and wonder...
And what did happen to the quadrupolar Sun?
Try to google that one!

argh.

Re: SOLAR WATCH * 312 M & 25 X FLARES starting 3-7-2011 (Updated Daily)
it is funny the more you look into the sun and solar activity the more one can see the electric universe. for me every day i spend watching the solar activity and how all the scientist deal with the data. like tracking CME's the less the harder it is for me to believe the whole universe is held together by "gravity" when we look into the atom and all matter...what is the glue? what...magnetism and electricity! yes SC i think they might have found out that higgs is pure magnetism or electricity.
but these guy might not let that out....hard to fit god into that without spending too much time to rewrite all their theories.

every time these thought come into my head...all i end up thinking about is MARS, and that huge scar the scar that tome looks like a huge lightning bolt hit it.
where did it come from?
how and why did it hit mars?
then i just think wow i am glad i was not around when that happened!
then i think about all the ancient buildings things like the serpent mound in ohio. south america. did the ancients know how to harness this energy?
was it crazier back then....are we entering into a time where this energy will be around us?

i just might have to re-read my thread again too.
 Quoting: psyoptics


LOL, yep, then consider that in some circles, there is a belief that the pyramids and obelisks were also great conductors of some form of power that they knew how to harness that we dont....we think we are so smart...

They'll dicover one Day that the Higgs appears to be Electromagnetism in its purest sense and form and that all other percieved 'Individual Forces' are just different expressions of the One True Force.

Maybe anyway.

I'm with you on this one. So true.
My field is Sanskrit Metaphysics and the ancient texts ring with these ideas.

they were becoming One with the primal metaphysical principles that generate the universe.

Re: SOLAR WATCH * 312 M & 25 X FLARES starting 3-7-2011 (Updated Daily)
After a short discussion (more a question on my part) with Ninzrez on another site yesterday, I did a little digging:

Starspots

~Starspots are equivalent to sunspots but located on other stars. Spots the size of sunspots are very hard to detect since they are too small to cause fluctuations in brightness. Observed starspots are in general much larger than those on the Sun, up to about 30 % of the stellar surface may be covered, corresponding to sizes 100 times greater than those on the Sun.~

Activity Cycles

~The HK Project is the longest-running program to monitor stellar activity cycles similar to the 11-year sunspot cycle. Almost 100 stars have been observed continuously since 1966; at present the project is monitoring long-term changes in chromospheric activity for approximately 400 dwarf and giant stars. Here is a sample of the long-term behavior for several stars with measured activity cycles:~

~Some stars have so many spots, or possibly a few very large ones, that they grow brighter and dimmer by as much as 20% as they rotate and their spotted sides come in and out of view as seen from Earth. One active red giant star, HD 12545, has a truly enormous starspot. The single spot covers 11% of the entire surface area of the giant star, which has a radius 11.4 times the size of our Sun. This gigantic elliptical spot has dimensions of about 12 by 20 solar radii and covers an area about 10,000 times greater than the largest sunspots observed on the Sun.~

~CoRoT monitored a star known as HD49933 for more than 180 days, revealing a magnetic cycle much shorter than the Sun's. It's the shortest cycle ever observed in another star—less than a year. In comparison, the Sun's cycle lasts 11 years; only about half of it is shown in this video.~



~The existence of starspot cycles on other stars had already been established long ago, thanks to observations that began in the 1950s. However, scientists did not know whether the X-ray radiation would also vary with the number of starspots. ESA's XMM-Newton has now shown that this is indeed the case and that this cyclic X-ray pattern is not typical of the Sun alone. "This suggests that our Sun's behaviour is probably nothing exceptional," said Favata.~

~In 2007, scientists at HAO initiated a survey of the brightest solar-type stars in the southern hemisphere, to complement the existing data from the northern surveys at the Mount Wilson and Lowell Observatories. With collaborators at Yale, Georgia State University, and the Space Telescope Science Institute, more than 50 stars are monitored monthly from the SMARTS 1.5m telescope at Cerro Tololo Interamerican Observatory in Chile, to monitor their Ca II H and K emission. Over the long term, these data will provide important new constraints on the physical mechanisms that drive the solar dynamo.~

So, we have roughly 50 years worth of data on 100 or so stars and several other shorter studies trying to define new methods of 'seeing' starspots. Some stars have cycles that are very short whilst others appear to be inactive probably due to having a cycle that is longer than the amount of time that we have been watching them.

I found no evidence of a star whose cycle mirrors our own, nor did I find any evidence of a 'resonance' in which the cycles of other stars are syncing toward a cosmic maximum.

I continue to watch...

"The Upholder of the Cycles which supports the whole of Life, is water. In every drop of water dwells the Godhead, whom we all serve; there also dwells Life, the Soul of the "First" substance - Water - whose boundaries and banks are the capillaries that guide it and in which it circulates" -- Viktor Schauberger
