More than two dozen solar flares have erupted from the Sun in the past seven days, catapulting radiation towards the Earth that could potentially play havoc with global communications.
The U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration issued four radio blackout warnings in the past two days after solar weather suddenly turned turbulent.
Radiation from flares cannot penetrate Earth’s atmosphere to harm life on the ground, but when intense enough it can disturb the atmosphere in the ionosphere, where GPS and radio signals travel.
Since October 23 the Sun has let loose with 24 medium-strength M-class solar flares, and four X-class flares – the most powerful kind.
In fact, with our local star heading towards the peak of its 11-year cycle, a period known as the solar maximum, this shouldn’t be unusual. But lead up to the solar max has been unusually subdued this year.
Humans have tracked the solar cycle continuously since it was discovered in 1843, and it is normal for there to be many flares a day during the sun’s peak activity.
Holly Gilbert, a solar physicist at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, told the Los Angeles Times: ‘It hadn’t been active in months, so it’s like it finally woke up.
‘For those of us who study the dynamics of the sun, it is exciting because it gives us more events to study.’
Solar flares happen when energy stored in magnetic fields twisted across the surface of the Sun is suddenly released.
‘You get a tangled bunch of magnetic fields, and they get too tangled and too stressed, they end up erupting,’ added Dr Gilbert.
The recent solar flare activity has also been accompanied by several coronal mass ejections (CMEs), say Nasa officials.
There are another kind of solar phenomenon that send billions of tons of particles into space that can reach Earth one to three days later.
Like the radiation from solar flares, these particles cannot travel through the atmosphere to harm humans on Earth; but they can affect electronic systems in satellites and on the ground.
CMEs can cause a space weather phenomenon called a geomagnetic storm, which occurs when they funnel energy into Earth’s magnetic envelope, the magnetosphere, for an extended period of time.
The CME’s magnetic fields peel back the outermost layers of Earth’s fields changing their very shape, distortions which can can degrade communication signals and cause unexpected surges in power grids.
They also can cause aurora. Storms are rare during solar minimum, but as the sun nears solar maximum, large storms occur several times per year.

Another X-Class Solar Flare !
A Major X1.0 Solar flare has been recorded from active region 11875 at 02:03 UTC this morning. A very strong coronal mass ejection (CME) has followed today’s eruption and could deliver a glancing blow to Earths magnetic field sometime during October 30, latest WSA-Enlil spirals indicate todays coronal mass ejection may just miss the earth.
TWIN X-CLASS SOLAR FLARES
Two major X-Class solar flares peaking to X1.7 and X2.3 were both registered from newly numbered Sunspot 1882 at 08:01 UTC this morning and15:03 UTC this afternoon . Associated with this major event was a 10cm Radio Burst (TenFlare) lasting 24 minutes and measuring 610 solar flux units and 44 minutes measuring 370 solar flux units. Two large coronal mass ejections (CME) are now visible in the latest LASCO imagery and looks to have a possible Earth directed components and we should begin to see a series of strong geomagnetic disturbances over the next 2-3 days.

Will this blast be the consciousness shifting “event” everyone’s anticipating??
Galactic Synchronization Ray or Super-massive Black Hole;
Excerpt clips from the movie: SOLAR (R)EVOLUTION by renowned German biophysicist, Dieter Broers.
The current Consciousness Shifts correspond to a super-massive Galactic Synchronization Plasma Ray originating from Sagittarius A – reaching us through our Sun. Its ongoing influence on us will be ending by mid-2013. Humanity and planet Earth is being upgraded at this very moment!
Please visit the Solar (R)evolution web site, buy or rent the Full movie:
…and pass this important information on to everyone you can. Thank you ~.~
We take a broad look at the many videos of doom about Comet ISON and ask the question “Haven’t we heard this all before?”

September 28, 2013
Ohioans were dazzled by a bright flash of blue light in the night sky on September 27, 2013, in southern Ohio around 11:30 p.m., eastern standard time. Could it have been a meteorite or a satellite predicted to crash to earth on Friday?
A fireball reportedly hit near a home in northern Adams County, Ohio, a few miles outside the city of Peebles causing a house fire. Those reports are unconfirmed. The six alarm fire left fireman battling the blaze into the early hours of the morning. It is unknown at this time if the residents made it out safely.
A neighbor said the meteor crossed over the city and hit near the Locust Grove Cemetery just four miles from the Great Serpent Effigy Mound. In recent years, a crop circle appeared overnight in an adjacent field from the Serpent Mound grounds and thousands of years ago it was the sight of a major meteorite that caused a huge crater.
To report a meteor go to the American Meteors Society webpage.
Come back for further updates on this situation.
Update: As of the morning of September 28, 2013, a home outside of Peebles, Ohio, in the Locust Grove area of Adams County burned to the ground last night, the two residents of the home, an elderly couple, Jane and Lyle Lambert, died as a result of smoke inhalation. The fire is believed to be caused from the meteor or pieces of the heated meteor that hit the home. The state fire marshal is investigating the fire.
Editors Note: The original title “Was it a meteor that lit up the sky last night?” was changed to reflect the updated status of the story.
