Expected radiation storms and coronal mass ejections toward Earth

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

Magnetic storms on Mars

Magnetic storms on Mars Facts

Magnetic storms on Mars from 24 to 25 October due coronal emission of the Sun which occurred October 22, 2011.

Mars has the unique ability to respond to solar storms. Unlike Earth, which has a continuous magnetic field, Mars unevenly covered by so-called "magnetic umbrellas" — remnants of the planetary field decayed billions of years ago.

When a coronal mass ejections hit the Red Planet, the "umbrella" of the observed magnetic storms, during which light up auroras.

There was a coronal mass ejection toward Earth

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

Video of the Day: The Earth at a distance of more than 160 million km

03.04.2013

Not every day you can see the Earth at a distance of more than 160 million miles of space. At the same distance from Earth, not so long ago, a comet flew PanSTARRS. The spacecraft STEREO-B (Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory was able to capture this amazing phenomenon. 

On the above picture above Earth is a prominent bright dot in the center, and the bright lights in the near corner — it is the tail of a comet PanSTARRS. In head happened to be the famous image of the Earth «Pale Blue Dot», reminiscent of

Overview of possible eruptions, earthquakes in the period from May 30 to June 5, 2012

Overview of possible eruptions, earthquakes in the period from May 30 to June 5, 2012 It is interesting

Appeared on the solar corona another coronal hole coordinates 45-48 ° N can cause a series of 5-point earthquake. There may be more powerful earthquake with a magnitude of up to 6 points in one of the following places on Earth: the coast of Oregon (USA), the Kuril Islands, the fjords around the Puget Sound in Washington State (USA), in the east of Kazakhstan, in the eastern part of Romania . Tentative dates of events May 29-31.

A large coronal

Per night at the Sun were five storms

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

Earth barely escaped the strongest in the last 150 years of geomagnetic storms

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,

Solar Prominence rushed away

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

Today geomagnetic storm

Sun

Magnetic storm began on Earth, it can last for about a day

MOSCOW, May 28 — RIA Novosti. Magnetic storm on Earth began on Saturday morning — the index of geomagnetic disturbances Kp reached a value of 6, one more than the minimum value, which is considered a storm, according to the space weather forecast center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the USA (NOAA).

Level of magnetic disturbances around 09.00 MSK reached the "red zone." Currently recalculated every three hours index Kp, characterizing geomagnetic activity reached a value of 6.

This scale has 10 levels,

Last summer, the sun rain

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.
