Sun Unleashes Major Earth Facing X9.3 Class Solar Flare

Two Major X-Class Solar Flares were unleashed off the solar corona from Active Region 12673 on September 6, 2017.

The First eruption registered was a X2.2 Blast at 9:10 UTC then shortly after at 12:02 a Huge X9.3 Solar Flare ripped off the solar surface, the strongest solar flare in more than a decade.

Both eruptions took place while in an earth-facing position so the incoming (CME’s) Coronal Mass Ejections will have earth-directed components and reach the earth in 2-3 days where very strong geomagnetic storms could be possible.

Two large Coronal Mass Ejections (CME’s) are now visible on the SOHO Satellite and does look to have an earth-directed component which should provide significant geomagnetic storming sometime Sep 8-9 where Aurora should be visible at mid to high latitudes.

The Kill-Shot will be triggered by a Super Solar Flare or a Nuclear EMP attack?

Analysts who have researched the affects of a powerful earth-directed Solar Flare believe that a direct hit by an extreme CME could cause widespread power blackouts, disabling everything that plugs into a wall socket. Most people wouldn’t even be able to flush their toilet because urban water supplies largely rely on electric pumps.

It has happened before and soon or later it will happen again. In 2016 Major Ed Dames has warned us already for the impending “kill-shot” which will pose a direct threat to all forms of high-technology.

It begins with an explosion–a “solar flare”—in the magnetic canopy of a sunspot.

X-rays and extreme UV radiation reach Earth at light speed, ionizing the upper layers of our atmosphere; side-effects of this “solar EMP” include radio blackouts and GPS navigation errors.

Minutes to hours later, the energetic particles arrive. Moving only slightly slower than light itself, electrons and protons accelerated by the blast can electrify satellites and damage their electronics.

Then come the CMEs, billion-ton clouds of magnetized plasma that take a day or more to cross the Sun-Earth divide.

Remember the solar storm of 1859, the March 1989 geomagnetic storm and the Solar Superstorm of July 2012 that just missed the Earth!

Solar storm of 1859.

The Solar storm of 1859—known as the Carrington Event was a powerful geomagnetic solar storm during solar cycle 10 (1855–1867). A solar coronal mass ejection hit Earth’s magnetosphere and induced one of the largest geomagnetic storms on record, September 1–2, 1859. The associated “white light flare” in the solar photosphere was observed and recorded by English astronomers Richard C. Carrington (1826–1875) and Richard Hodgson (1804–1872).

Studies have shown that a solar storm of this magnitude occurring today would likely cause more widespread problems for a modern and technology-dependent society.

The solar storm of 2012 was of similar magnitude, but it passed Earth’s orbit without striking the planet. March 1989 geomagnetic storm.

A severe geomagnetic storm struck Earth on March 13, 1989. 

It occurred during solar cycle 22 and caused a nine-hour outage of Hydro-Québec’s electricity transmission system.

The geomagnetic storm causing this event was itself the result of a coronal mass ejection on March 9, 1989. A few days before, on March 6, a very large X15-class solar flare also occurred.

Three and a half days later, at 2 44 am EST on March 13, a severe geomagnetic storm struck Earth. The storm began on Earth with extremely intense auroras at the poles. The aurora could be seen as far south as Texas and Florida.

The Halloween solar storms were a series of solar flares and coronal mass ejections that occurred from mid-October to early November 2003, peaking around October 28–29. … One of the solar storms was compared by some scientists in its intensity to the Carrington Event of 1859.

The Solar Superstorm of July 2012.

Carrington-class CME Narrowly Misses Earth. The solar storm of 2012 was an unusually large and strong coronal mass ejection (CME) event that occurred on July 23 that year. It missed the Earth with a margin of approximately nine days, as the Sun rotates around its own axis with a period of about 25 days.

The region that produced the outburst was thus not pointed directly towards the Earth at that time. The strength of the eruption was comparable to the 1859 Carrington event that caused damage to electric equipment worldwide, which at that time consisted mostly of telegraph stations.

And if it is not a Solar Flare than it is quite possible that the danger of a “kill-shot” will come of an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) generated by the detonation of a high-altitude nuclear weapon.

This is not mere theory!

In 1962 the United States detonated a 1.4-megaton nuclear warhead over the South Pacific, 900 miles southwest of Hawaii. Designated “Starfish Prime,” the blast destroyed hundreds of street lights in Honolulu, caused electrical surges on airplanes in the area, and damaged at least six satellites..

A North Korean EMP attack on the U.S or other countries may be far-fetched?

No! North Korea could make an EMP attack against the United States by launching a short-range missile off a freighter or submarine or by lofting a warhead to 30 kilometers burst height by balloon,” wrote Mr. Graham earlier this month on the security blog 38 North. Learn more: Zerohedge.com

Even a balloon-lofted warhead detonated at 30 kilometers altitude could blackout the Eastern Grid that supports most of the population and generates 75 percent of US electricity. Moreover, an EMP attack could be made by a North Korean satellite. Two North Korean satellites currently orbit the earth on trajectories that take them over the U.S.

Was it a dry run for an EMP attack?

Yesterday, June 11, 2017 a massive blackout occurred in Seoul’s Southwestern Areas, Satellite Cities reports Yonhapnews.co.kr.

A power substation malfunctioned Sunday, causing a massive blackout in some southwestern districts in Seoul and regions just south of the capital, South Korea’s state-run electricity monopoly said.

Yeongseo Substation, located in Gwangmyeong, near Seoul, suffered a partial breakdown around 12:53 p.m. causing a disruption in the electrical power supply, according to the Korea Electric Power Corp. (KEPCO) and the city government.

An investigation team is still under way to determine the exact cause of black out.

Solar Flare exposes invisible ‘Ship/Object’ parked under the Sun

A camera on board NASA’s AIA 304 satellite seems to have captured a new video of an unknown dark object parked right under the Sun.

A coronal mass ejection (CME) ejects from the Sun and reaches out to reveal a otherwise not noticed object which was either invisible and reacted to the plasma or it was black and the CME just simply exposed it.

Whatever the object is, it appears on the AIA 304 images.

Geomagnetic Mega-Storm Fries Telegraph Lines – 156 Years Ago Today

Geomagnetic Mega-Storm Fries Telegraph Lines – 156 Years Ago Today

By spaceweather.com

     On Sept. 2nd, a billion-ton coronal mass ejection (CME) slammed into Earth’s magnetic field. Campers in the Rocky Mountains woke up in the middle of the night, thinking that the glow they saw was sunrise. No, it was the Northern Lights. People in Cuba read their morning paper by the red illumination of aurora borealis. Earth was peppered by particles so energetic, they altered the chemistry of polar ice.

Hard to believe? It really happened–exactly 156 years ago. This map shows where auroras were sighted in the early hours of Sept. 2, 1859:

Map of Auroras Sighted in Morning – Sept. 2, 1859

As the day unfolded, the gathering storm electrified telegraph lines, shocking technicians and setting their telegraph papers on fire. The “Victorian Internet” was knocked offline. Magnetometers around the world recorded strong disturbances in the planetary magnetic field for more than a week. […]

Huge UFO shoots on the surface of the Sun followed by a massive X2.7 Solar Flare

As you can see in the first video, a huge UFO fired a shot in the Sun on May 5, 2015 at 20.12 UTC followed by a giant explosion/flash.

Almost two hours later at 22.11 UTC the northeastern limb of the solar corona unleashed a massive X2.7 Solar Flare as you can see in the second video.

The impulsive eruption was short lasting but produced a significant Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) which does not have an earth bound component as the ejecta was discharged upward and well behind the earth position.

Coincidence or the UFO shot in the Sun in an attempt to unleash the eruption in an earlier phase, in order to prevent the significant Coronal Mass Ejection would hurtling towards Earth?

This remarkable event contributed to another magnetic filament but now on the opposite site of the sun, in the southern hemisphere of the solar corona and released itself sending its own but weak CME towards the earth. This should become geoeffective sometime May 9.

‘CANYON OF FIRE’ Opens on the SUN

Fragments of the exploding filament formed the core of a CME that raced away from the sun at approximately 900 km/s (2 million mph): Most of the CME will miss planet Earth, but a glancing blow cannot yet be ruled out.

A filament of magnetism stretching halfway across the sun erupted during the late hours of April 4th (22:00-23:00 UT).

The eruption split the sun’s atmosphere, hurling a CME into space and creating a “Canyon of Fire.”

The glowing walls of the canyon trace the original channel where the filament was suspended by magnetic forces above the stellar surface. From end to end, the structure stretches more than 700,000 km ….a real Grand Canyon at the center of the Sun.

Image above: During the exploding filament a huge object shoots out of the Sun.

Amazing video: Huge oddly shaped plasma filament snaking over the Sun

Most solar flares come from sunspots. The next big explosion, however, could come from a different source: On February 5, 2015, a huge filament of magnetism is snaking over the sun’s southeastern limb.

According to spaceweather, the structure, a tendril of plasma of more than 400,000 km long held suspended above the surface of the sun by magnetic forces.

If the filament were peeled off the sun and stretched out, it would easily reach from Earth to the Moon.

If the filament becomes unstable and erupts, it could hurl parts of itself into space. Pieces of the filament falling back to the solar surface would explode upon impact, creating one or more Hyder flares.

Astronomers with backyard solar telescopes are encouraged to monitor the structure as it turns toward Earth. A photogenic explosion may be in the offing.

UFOvni2012 made an amazing clip of this event.

Huge Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) Headed Towrds Earth

Intense Solar Eruption Captured by NASA Spacecraft (Video)

By Megan Gannon

      A huge tendril of super-hot plasma that had been creeping across the face of the sun erupted Tuesday (Sept. 2) in a striking solar storm that may send a wave of charged particles in Earth’s direction.

Video of the solar eruption captured by NASA’s sun-watching Solar Dynamics Observatory shows a cloud of solar plasma being hurled from the sun’s surface during the rippling blast.

Debris from the solar explosion could be traveling in the direction of Earth, according to Spaceweather.com, which tracks stargazing and space weather events. Further observations should confirm whether the eruption was actually an Earth-directed coronal mass ejection, or CME. . . .
