We had a big one which will hit Earth soon, you can read all about it on http://spaceweather.com/
We will be hit on March 13th or 14th. Space Weather says “However, we do not yet know if it will hit Earth”
“X2-FLARE AND RADIO BLACKOUT: All week long, sunspot AR2297 has been crackling with solar flares. Yesterday it produced a really big one. On March 11th at 16:22 UT (09:22 PDT), Earth orbiting-satellites detected an X2-class flare. The blast zone was larger than Earth itself: “March 12, 2015 at 5:14 pm #38752

All that power and fury, and its still less destructive than Zero.March 12, 2015 at 9:16 pm #38755
All that power and fury directed right at us …it would be the destruction of Zero. These guys are useless without technology. I doubt he even knows how to pound a nail or change a tire. He’d be a chain smoker without nicotene. A coke user without pepsi.March 12, 2015 at 9:28 pm #38756
OMG, anything but flaping his lips is to much work. Look at the sissy.March 13, 2015 at 10:35 am #38819
Today’s update from http://www.ips.gov.au/
“Solar activity has been high due to the magnetic complexity of Active Region 2297. This region produced ten C class flares and five M class flares during Mar 11 UT. The largest flare of the day was a M4.2 event peaking at 14:08 UT. Further M class flares and a X class are possible during the next 48 hours. AR 2297 will rotate across the central meridian into a more geoeffective location during the next 24 hours. The availability of SOHO spacecraft observations of the corona has been patchy recently, and it has not been possible to determine the direction and width of the CME associated with the X2.1 flare of Mar 11, or of any CME possibly associated with the numerous M class flares during Mar 11-12. However, because AR 2297 was located just east of the central meridian, a component of the CME associated with the X2.1 flare could be Earthward directed. The glancing blow of an earlier CME predicted to arrive late Mar 12 may still arrive at Earth early today, Mar 13. The 4-day outlook is for active geomagnetic conditions due to the possible impact of several CMEs. There is also the possibility of a minor geomagnetic storm this weekend. Aurora watchers should stay tuned for updates on increased geomagnetic activity. HF radio propagation conditions are expected to be normal to enhanced at mid-latitudes in the Australian region during Mar 13. “March 13, 2015 at 10:37 am #38820
http://spaceweather.com/ has an update too!
“Friday the 13th could be a lucky day for sky watchers. Several minor CMEs propelled toward Earth earlier this week by active sunspot AR2297 are expected to arrive en masse on March 13th”March 13, 2015 at 9:26 pm #38843
Well on this side of the world we have been battling to finish any conversation on our cellular network. There could be any number of reasons, but this is one of themMarch 14, 2015 at 1:18 am #38847
Leopard you are so right. I am an amateur radio operator and everything I have been listening to is
full of junk. Usually I can adjust the noise filter to block noise but now it’s everywhere!
