Our nearest star, the Sun Unleashed ‘Spectacular’ & Powerful Eruption on 7th June, 2011.
<<<Read the full article written by Tariq Malik on Space.com>>>
STORM WARNING: The forecasters have downgraded the chances of a geomagnetic storm on June 9th to 20%. The disturbance, if it occurs, would be in response to a glancing blow from the Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) of June 7th. High-latitude sky watchers should remain alert for auroras. Above all, there are small chances that the radio satellites in orbit will be effected.. I suggest all people around the world to take care while doing outdoor activities.. Wear suitable clothes and sunglasses..Anyway, there is absolutely nothing to worry about.
Clear amazing auroras skies 🙂
Books from AstrOceanOmy Store:
How cool is that! And what a pleasing coincidence! I read a very brief reference to geomagnetic storms and this event on my mobile this morning. I had intended to look into it further when I got back to my laptop but you have kindly posted this blog and saved me looking any further thanks! Clear magnetic skies for Icewolf tonight then!
Did a blog about the Great Solar Storm of 1849 back in 2009…fascinating subject. Unfortunately it seemes to hae suffered at the wordy hands of the msn/Wordpress change-over which has done some very strange things to the layout and font!
Howling Wolfie Skies! 🙂
Welcome back Europa 🙂
Thanks for the link…I just read that post years back 🙂 ..in msn spaces..my old comment is there too 🙂
Yeah some changes are there with layout/fonts, but it looks good while viewing it in mobile phone.
So I guess this is just the beginning of Solar activity..I think there are more to come!
Clear Skies 🙂
On yea! lol Definately best viewed in the trusty mobile they always look super cool in there form experience! Best not to view the actual post on a PC it would seem 🙂 If I try editing it it will end up looking evenb worse 😉 Trust me!! As to more solar activity to come…I’m certain there is! spaceweather.com is a good place to keep tabs on solar activity
Thanks Europa for the link 🙂 , I’m aware of that site..but sometimes forget about it 🙂
I’ll post things later related to that site
Hot Skies here in Oman, ..I’m waiting for the nest solar activity 🙂
