    Solar storm coming 9/10-9/11

    From AP: News from The Associated Press

    They aren't sure yet when it might hit, so they don't know which hemisphere will get it, but they say it's quite a bad one.
    "The flare is considered extreme on forecasters' scale, but just barely."

    Hoping it passes without event.

    Thanks I'll be sure to keep my umbrella up.

    It would be good to have a measure of how our systems stand. Maybe it will be similar to Y2K. That bit of alarmism caused the DOT COM crash. Unfortunately my opinion is the right solar storm could do some real damage.

    Good point. Maybe it is a good think if there is some type of minor hiccup somewhere on the grid. Hopefully doesn't screw people over too long but if a populated area got hit it would be a much needed wake up call. For some reason my government tends to react in stand of prevent. Maybe that is just human nature. Maybe my government is completely stupid.

    Partial story from spaceweather.com They track solar flares etc, interesting website, IMO. Suppose to hit the 12th??

    EARTH-DIRECTED X-FLARE AND CME: Sunspot AR2158 erupted on Sept. 10th at 17:46 UT, producing an X1.6-class solar flare. A flash of ultraviolet radiation from the explosion ionized the upper layers of Earth's atmosphere, disturbing HF radio communications for more than an hour. More importantly, the explosion hurled a CME directly toward Earth. The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory photographed the expanding cloud

    NOAA believes a CME is associated with the flare and that means that in the next two days - three at the most - there could be severe interactions with the electrical grids of the northern or southern hemisphere depending on the polarity of the CME. I will be checking the site and will discponnect my home from the grid if it is as big as they think for the time of contact. At least it is not considered as a large threat atr this time.

    Around September 29th NOAA is going to launch a dedicated website for solar weather. That will make it easier to track and be prepared for catastrophic solar events.

    I appreciate the extra digging guys! The AP site left much to be desired, but it was just a blurb I spotted on Drudge. Figured others with better resources could confirm and inform, and I'm pleased to see I was right. Let's keep an eye on this, just in case.

    If that is 2 or 3 days then that is not the reason (I guess) for the rumors about planned power outages around the country tomorrow. I do not know, just what I saw and I thought maybe because of sun power effect or such? Just went to atm and cleaned out anyway in case we're a place.
