According to a presentation from the Athens Neutron Monitor Station, we had 6 G5 events between 1970 and 2003. Clearly, none were "killshots", since we're still here.

I'm sure there have been, not sure what your point is. Mine is that this will cause disturbances at best.

For you educational pleasure wink

Just to say that a G5 does not represent a "killshot"
 Quoting: phoomp


So you are simply arguing semantics. Good for you wink
 Quoting: TS66

With those trying to generate fear over these types of events, semantics are important, since they often rely on a general lack of understanding in their readers. Poor definitions help turn a lack of understanding into fear.

Please, anyone wants the definitions of K & G level geomagnetic storms, minor - extreme please refer to this link, not the heresay of shilling trolls

Well, I did coin "basshole" so I'd say we have a bit of history ;)

I do agree tho geo, it's pretty interesting. I don't really care if anything happens, I'm set either way it goes.

For Sun-noobs: CMEs are not judged by the size of the solar flare that produced it! Most of the time M-class flares and filament eruptions can produce CMEs far bigger than X-class flares!! Look at the Enlil CME simulation, it looks pretty big!

 Quoting: Solar Guardian

While this is true, the flare strength give us a rough idea (though that is thrown off by long duration moderate flares) there is no other way to measure a CME until it arrives. Enlil is just a rough guess based on observation of the eruption.

Of course there is data to indicate the strength of an incoming CME, and what Enlil/ISWA base their predictions on wink

Cactus measures velocity and angle, as you can see on the site's key. Velocity is very important to the potential impact on earth and helps determine the impact simulations.

So not just the shot in the dark you claim.

You'll have to do some research on your own. I've given quite a few sites in the past 2 days that should at least get you off to good start. Your attitude sucks however, and you obviously know it all already, ergo, your ignorance will prevail.

However I will not allow disinfo be presented by you or anyone else as fact for those who really would like to know.

Have a nice day hf

Update:
Space Weather Message:
"WATCH: Geomagnetic Storm Category G2 Predicted
Highest Storm Level Predicted by Day:
Mar 16: G1 (Minor) Mar 17: G2 (Moderate) Mar 18: None (Below G1)
THIS SUPERSEDES ANY/ALL PRIOR WATCHES IN EFFECT
Potential Impacts: Area of impact primarily poleward of 55 degrees Geomagnetic Latitude.
Induced Currents - Power grid fluctuations can occur. High-latitude power systems may experience voltage alarms.
Spacecraft - Satellite orientation irregularities may occur; increased drag on low Earth-orbit satellites is possible.
Radio - HF (high frequency) radio propagation can fade at higher latitudes".

If not, paging Astromut!!!!

No, but highly knowledgeable suntards like Shadasonic, Geomagnetic Storm, and Da Fuq have made several comments. I recommend reading what they've said.

I consider my knowledge of solar activity much higher than the average, hence the avatar. A Kp index of 6 should be anticipated and auroras in the northern U.S. states should be seen. No proton event. No doom.

NOAA Predicted:
Initial Speeds Predicted over 925km/s starting at 8pm UTC

NOAA's Prediction was too high:
Actual Measured Speeds got to the high 700km/s. The CME arrived 8 hrs late.
I say NOAA's Speed Prediction was over 150km/s too high

NOAA's predicted plasma density of 25 was also too high.

So yesterday's extreme "red alert" warnings based on NOAA's predictions were too high.

Note the jump to Kp6 this morning. Imagine if NOAA's predictions were good? Imagine if their predictions were low and we got hit with 1000km/s?! Keep up the good work everyone and Thank You! Data below.

So...anyone set to apologize to me now (Da Fuqq)?!?!?

Turned out to be a k6...barely lit up the middle of Canada with Aurora's...

No power outages, only light interference with some satellites, exactly what I said it would be...

Killshot my ass...
