Expected radiation storms and coronal mass ejections towards Earth Danger Zone
Solar radiation storm is observed around the Earth. At the date of November 27, 2011, it was assessed as weak. This means that the planet storm has little effect, but rather — to high-frequency radio transmission at high altitudes. Recorded at least one failure of the Japanese communications satellite "Kodama". In the near future, however, may occur more significant changes.
A solar flare that occurred on November 26, not only caused the radiation storm. It also caused a coronal mass ejection speed 930 kilometers per second, which will reach

There was a coronal mass ejection toward Earth Facts
As a result of the long flash intensity M3, 2 in 1402 there was a sunspot coronal mass ejection toward Earth. Outbreak consisted of two waves, and at the second rate was higher, allowing it to surpass the first. The basic amount of the plasma will be directed to the north.
Confirmation that the coronal mass ejection directed toward Earth, came from analysts Goddard Space Weather Lab. There was also a warning about the strong geomagnetic storms from 21 to 22 January 2012. Also on 21 January at 22.30 (UTC) aurora

Our sun does not cease to amaze. Last week, our nearest star in just two days has made five coronal mass ejections, causing a surprisingly colorful auroras.
Solar storms broke out between February 23 and 24 and escaped from nearly all of the star, including the top, bottom, left and right side of the solar disk, as reported by space observatories. In fact, these four outbreaks occurred within a 24-hour period.
One of the spectacular magnetic eruptions caused flash in the night of 24 February. This caused the first of two coronal mass ejections (CMEs), which had been

Eau fastest coronal mass ejection on record
July 23, 2012 a massive cloud of solar material was ejected from the right (looking from the Earth) the Sun in space.
Event registered Observatory solar-terrestrial interaction (Solar TErrestrial RElations Observatory, STEREO) NASA. After analyzing the data it was found that this had a coronal mass ejection rate between 2880 and 3520 km / s.
STEREO was able to estimate the rate of release in the first place, because this mission provides data from two devices that are in different locations. One ahead of Earth in its rotation around the sun,

Coronal mass ejection (Coronal mass ejection — CME) — folded solar prominence — broke away from the light and the surface, developing tremendous speed 1440 km / s, and ran off into space.
He can not reach the area of the planet — from the earth to the sun 150 million miles — but can strongly influence her, hitting passing Earth's magnetosphere. This explains the aurora in the night of Monday 3 September.
The observatory NASA / SDO images made prominence in four wavelengths. Each wavelength corresponds to the proper temperature of the solar material. By comparing

Eruption occurring on the Sun, are very different. Some are limited to solar flare accompanied by another coronal mass ejection, and some are characterized by the formation of complex motion patterns and variations of magnetic field lines that describe the loops in the solar atmosphere — the corona.
July 19, 2012 eruption, which was then the second and third. Solar flare of moderate intensity occurred in the lower right side of the disc. Then, more to the right, one could observe coronal mass ejection. At last the sun to give the audience a dazzling magnetic performance — coronal rain.

Mysterious cylindrical object (circle) was photographed by NASA probe
Sun's coronal mass ejection "highlighted" UFO, disguised in the first planet in our system. Storyboard coronal mass ejection, which occurred on the Sun on December 1 of this year, caused a stir among ufologists. They argue that the release of "highlighted" a giant spaceship, located next to Mercury.
The pictures were taken on board the NASA probe "Stereo", which follows the sun.
Of these successive shots turned peculiar cartoon that shows how to break out of the light plasma covers Mercury. But before you reach

On the visible part of the sun there was a group of dangerous spots. Their dozens. This cluster of spots, which were given room 1339, several times larger than the size of the Earth. The spots can be seen not only in amateur telescopes, but in digital cameras.
They were locked Solar Dynamics Observatory, the U.S. on Thursday November 3. Then there was a flash on the luminary X-class followed by a powerful coronal mass ejection. It — this weight — had a velocity of about 1 million km / h and weighed several billion tons.
But the giant "spitting"

As the spaceweather.com, sun spots on the eastern limb of the Sun explode powerful X-class solar flares.
Spot at number AR1748 announced itself in the early hours of 13th May X1.7-class eruption, and then quickly followed by an outbreak level X2.8 year and even more — X3.2, but on May 14. This is the most severe outbreaks this year, and they signal a significant increase in solar activity. NOAA forecasters estimate the probability of new X-flares during the next 24 hours in 40%.
All these outbreaks produced strong emission of extreme ultraviolet

Netherlands: Local amateur astronomer Jan Timmermans captured a strange phenomenon that occurs with the Sun, said the portal Spaceweather. May 2, at sunrise, Jan Timmermans filmed a spot on the Sun, located on the south-west side and later discovered that captures the unusual prominence separated from the surface of the star, which turned into a ball of fire, the size of our Earth.
Amateur astronomer did not specify whether the fallen, this ball in the sun, as it usually happens with protuberances or flew into space, as do the coronal mass ejections. Ian
