Ecuador is preparing for a possible eruption of Tungurahua

Ecuadorian authorities have decided to introduce a Sunday orange threat level in two provinces of the country in connection with a possible eruption of Tungurahua, local media reported.

Tungurahua volcano taller than five thousand meters intensified in 1999 and since then does not stop from time to time to disturb local residents. Previous eruptions of the volcano were recorded in April and August, and now were marked ash emissions and rocks that cover several located near population centers.

According to the Institute of Geophysics, National Polytechnic University of Ecuador, the activity of the volcano remains at a high level. The

Geostationary satellite GOES-15 (U.S.), which monitors solar flares today, recorded new coronal mass ejections from our luminary, said laboratory X-ray astronomy of the Sun (LPI). A series of outbreaks of the average power and the plasma emission occurred on the Sun on Monday and Tuesday. And after a day or two, they can cause geomagnetic disturbances on Earth. They will last for five days. A peak of disturbances will occur in March 10.

According to specialists

Sun attacks: the end of the year will fall to Earth 25 magnetic storms

By the Earth magnetic storm is approaching. It is caused by emissions of plasma on the sun, which happened three days ago. Scientists warn that in the next two months, the solar activity will increase. And that, above all, will feel the weather-sensitive people.

MES is projected by the end of the year is expected about 25 geomagnetic disturbances. With the most tangible manifestations of solar activity will face in March-April and September-October.

Recall one of the last major magnetic storm touched our planet in the middle of February. On the Sun was recorded series of flashes

Severe outbreak of class X (2.2)

The most powerful in the five years flare occurred on the Sun

MOSCOW, Feb. 15 — RIA Novosti. The most powerful flare in the past five years have seen the sun — GOES satellites recorded outbreak of class X2 Tuesday at 01.56 GMT (04.56 MSK), said in a statement on the website of the National Oceanic and Meteorological Research (NOAA).

Solar flares are divided according to the power of X-ray radiation from the sun into five classes, which are designated by letters of the alphabet: A, B,

Ice Age will begin in two years

Section Head of Space Research of the Sun Pulkovo Observatory, Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences Habibullo Abdusamatov manages the project "astrometry", set up to study the behavior of our star and its effects on Earth's climate. He and his colleagues argue that in 2014 the planet will begin next ice age, which will last for almost two centuries.

Solar activity is reduced — reduced heat flux coming to our planet.

Proponents of the theory of global warming argue that if you do not take action, then after three or four decades, our planet is literally "boil" as the pan

MOSCOW, Jan. 28 — RIA Novosti. First in 2011, a major outbreak occurred in the Sun on Friday night, but a magnetic storm the Earth is not threatened, said on Friday, scientists from the Laboratory of X-ray astronomy of the Sun Lebedev Physical Institute (LPI).

"Flash Class M1.3 occurred at night, Moscow time, and there was about 20 minutes with a maximum at 04.03 MSK. Preceded the outbreak of high solar activity observed more days. From the middle of the day on Thursday were five outbreaks, which were, however, very weak, "- said in a statement on the

Overflowing lava lake Ethiopian Erta Ale volcano

Erta Ale — an active volcano in the Afar depression in Ethiopia

Since November 2010, Erta Ale volcano showed increased volcanic activity, "vystrelivaya" hot lava to a height of ten meters.

Erta Ale — one of the most active volcanoes in Africa, characterized by lava lake in the last few decades, perhaps even since the beginning of the 20th century.

His usual activity characterized by moderate bubbling lava and gas release, but since last year, its intensity has increased dramatically.

Since February 2010, the lake level has risen more than 30 meters and diamonds, which ultimately led to

Frontline village of Azerbaijan suffered invasion of locusts

Frontline villages of Azerbaijan suffered invasion of locusts.

APA reports quoting the executive power of Terter.

On crop areas near the villages Shiharh, Hasangaya the rise of pests. These insects, called the Moroccan locust, mostly attacking the grain warehouses.

Told APA Division IV Terter on Agriculture, in connection with a timely combating these pests this year, compared to previous years, the damage done by insects, not so serious.

Breeding for a short time, these pests feed, along with different types of vegetation, manure and other waste. And their activity is dependent on the activity of the sun.

On the Sun there were 11 outbreaks of class X

On Wednesday and Thursday are expected geomagnetic storm. From the Sunday Sun never ceases to send into space for flash flash: for the past day it reported 11 outbreaks of force not less than class C. Five of them have reached the maximum level of X. In order to understand how serious this is, recall power classes of solar flares : they are designated by the letters A, B, C, M, H. Last Class "X" occurred in the field with the number 1302 in the catalog of the American Service NOAA. Thus, this region broke the previous record of activity,

Different hemisphere of the Sun reached a peak of activity at different times

Richard Altrok of the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory in New Mexico, specializing in the study of solar coronal structures, has put forward the idea that the peak of solar activity, which is expected to be adopted in 2013, in the northern hemisphere of the sun has already happened — in July 2011.

According to his calculations, the peak of activity in the southern hemisphere will be observed later predicted and will come only at the beginning of 2014.

Like, if you're interested, have already experienced: it is a period called the Maunder solar minimum. According to some
