Five days later, a huge area of activity on the Sun is facing the Earth

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 5. / Itar-Tass Kachalin /. Solar Dynamics Observatory, USA / GSO — American scientific satellite / register one of the most powerful solar flares. Activity in the area luminary capable soon cause a series of new disturbance slowly moves to the point facing the Earth. In this position, area of activity will remain two weeks, predicts the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the United States.

Flare that occurred on the Sun on Thursday, in line class X1, 9 / Latin letter / and "provoked after about 45 minutes of

The sun will soon ignite the maximum!

Life on earth depends on the sun. In particular, it is solar activity can affect the Earth's climate changes. Now the solar cycle moves to its maximum. How this can be fraught with us? However, no major accidents should not happen, promise scientists as they happened in the previous four hundred years of observations.

By solar activity implies the appearance of sunspots, whose number may at certain times to peak and then fall to a minimum. For the first time such a spot was recorded in 1611. The discovery has astonished astronomers previously considered our star something

Chilean volcano awakens after 20 years of silence

The National Service of Geology and Mining (SERNAGEOMIN) — Southern Andean Volcano Observatory (OVDAS), announced last night that increased seismic activity is related to the activities vulkanoa Hudson. At 19:08 local time, an earthquake of magnitude 4.6 near the volcano, followed by the appearance of a large number of aftershocks from 21:49 Seismic tremors are continuing at the moment with a little less intensity. This activity shows that the volcanic system has experienced changes in its dynamics may be due to magmatic activity at depth, which in the future could lead to imbalance. Chilean authorities decided to raise the alert

Over 240 earthquakes recorded after the devastating March 11 disaster in northeastern Japanese island of Honshu

After the disaster on March 11 in northeastern Honshu, where there are hundreds of thousands of refugees and has large losses already noted more than 240 earthquakes with a magnitude of 4.0 and above. It is reported by national meteoupravlenie. Threat of further earthquakes and tsunamis complicate the work of lifeguards on emergency nuclear power plant "Fukushima-1". There is also the threat of landslides and the destruction of new buildings, the construction of which is much weaker.

Meanwhile, another earthquake of magnitude 5.6 occurred this morning in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Iwate Prefecture, Japan,

Seismic activity of the Earth

People who do not have degrees in the sciences, it is very difficult to understand why in the 21st century from the effects of devastating natural disasters: earthquakes and volcanic eruptions killed a lot of people, but science has not yet learned how to predict them.

But even non-specialists understand what causes these natural disasters are linked, and that most of them occur where the ratio of land and sea is constantly changing and there is a process ongoing transformation of the Earth's crust.

Back in the ancient myths and legends, we find mention of the destructive power of

Shiveluch again threw a giant column of ash

In Kamchatka volcano Shiveluch threw ash to a height of up to 8 feet above sea level. There is no danger to the population, loss of volcanic dust in nearby towns is not observed.

On Friday at 08:54 local time (00:54 GMT) quake was recorded lasting 3.5 minutes, followed by an eruption of ash. Conclusions about the height of the eruption, scientists are doing on the basis of data on seismic activity of the volcano. Visually, a column of ash was observed, as the volcano is now closed dense clouds.

According to the classification of the Kamchatka Volcanic Eruption

Indonesian Volcano Soputan became increasingly

Center mitigation of geological and volcanic disasters (PVMBG) have raised the level of danger on Mount Soputan in Minahasa regency, and the South-east Minahasa, located in the north of. Sulawesi. Now, due to increasing volcanic activity Soputan code risk is 3 for a four-point scale.

The volcano began to show serious signs of seismic activity is May 25, 2012, spewing white smoke to a height of 50 to 75 meters above the top of the mountain. Since then, the center PVMBG there were dozens of different symptoms intensify Soputana. All local residents are warned of the threat of release of
