A major X4.9 Solar Flare was registered by newly numbered active region 11990 at 00:49 UTC this morning. Associated with this event was a 10cm radio bust reaching 3700 solar flux units with a duration of 85 minutes, an R3 (Strong) Solar Flare Radio Blackout and a very strong Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) was observed leaving the blast site but will not have an earth bound component as the active region had just rotated the eastern limb.
At 7:56 UTC this morning Active Region 11976 unleashed a strong M3-Class Solar Flare, a strong Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) was also observed leaving the blast site but will not have an earth-bound component due to the proximity of the active region which is about to rotate off the western limb in the next 24 hours.

The sun’s magnetic field will reverse polarity at some point in the coming weeks, sending ripples to the edge of interstellar space
(TheIndependent.co.uk) The sun is set to “flip upside down” within weeks as its magnetic field reverses polarity in an event that will send ripple effects throughout the solar system.
Although it may sound like a catastrophic occurrence, there’s no need to run for cover. The sun switches its polarity, flipping its magnetic north and south, once every eleven years through an internal mechanism about which little is understood.
The swap could however cause intergalactic weather fronts such as geomagnetic storms, which can interfere with satellites and cause radio blackouts.Nasa said in August that the change would happen in three to four months time, but it is impossible to give a more specific date. Scientist won’t know for around another three weeks whether the flip is complete. The impact of the transfer will be widespread as the sun’s magnetic field exerts influence well beyond Pluto, past Nasa’s Voyager probes positioned near the edge of interstellar space.The event will be watched closely by researchers at Stanford University’s Wilcox Solar Observatory, which monitors the sun’s magnetic field on a daily basis. Todd Hoeksema, director of the Wilcox Solar Observatory, said the polarity change is built up throughout the eleven year cycle through areas of intense magnetic activity known as sunspots which gradually move towards the poles, eroding the existing opposite polarity.Eventually, the magnetic field reduces to zero, before rebounding with the opposite polarity.

In the most alarming, and science fiction-sounding, news you’re likely to hear for a while: the Sun’s polarity is about to flip upside down. Ignore the scare stories that this could wipe out world communication: for us Earthlings, the flip will likely be a beautiful nonevent.
The first thing to know is, this isn’t the first time the sun’s polarity has shifted. In fact, it happens about every eleven years, and how it happens is rather interesting.
Throughout the eleven year cycle, the sun’s activity builds and builds. During this time, the sun begins to develop so-called sunspots or active regions of intense magnetic activity that present as blotches close to the sun’s equator. These active regions spread toward the poles and cause the sun’s polar magnetic fields to weaken. When the poles reach zero they rebound, but with north and south reversed. The process then begins again. The mechanics behind the flip aren’t precisely understood and, as usual, scientists around the world are keen to examine the entire happening for any clues as to the mathematical workings of this amazing solar event.
Add to this that the change is technically half done already: the Sun’s north pole has already changed, so the Sun currently has two magnetic south poles. You can read background on this phenomena and the last time the Sun had two north poles here.
Of particular interest is the reason behind why the Sun’s polar fields have been getting weaker during the past 30 years, as have the sunspots, and whether there’s an overarching pattern scientists have not yet unraveled. To discern that, scientists will keep careful track of the sun’s rebounding strength to see whether the coming eleven year cycle will be a relatively active one or whether the trend of relative weakness will continue.
As to whether the pole shift could cause problems on Earth, there is a small chance that the Sun’s flip could cause relatively minor satellite communication disturbances, and there’s the potential for a few problems with our energy grid and our GPS. The main point to get across though, and something scientists have been hammering home to the press these past few months, is that the Sun’s polarity change won’t really cause us earthlings many problems at all. In fact, we probably won’t even know it’s happened.
Todd Hoeksema, director of the Wilcox Solar Observatory, is quoted by the Independent as saying: “It’s not a catastrophic event, it’s a large scale event that has some real implications, but it’s not something we need to worry about.”
To reiterate, the polar shift isn’t predicted to spawn any large solar storms, or any kind of solar output that could be badly damaging to our planet’s infrastructure. It is true, though, that because the sun’s influence is so very large, in fact stretching past the used-to-be planet Pluto, our solar system will be in for some interesting magnetic happenings: and this is where the polar flip gets beneficial and beautiful.
For one, the solar flip likely means increased protection from cosmic rays that can damage our satellites and our astronauts. If we want to talk visibly impressive, though, there’s the fact that this event is predicted to increase the range and intensity of our planet’s auroras or, as we are more familiar with them, the Northern Lights.
Auroras, in this sense, are the result of energetic charged particles colliding with atoms in our planet’s thermosphere, which then release burning gases that produce different colored lights. The auroras are nearly always spectacular, but the Sun’s polar flip means that this December’s auroras are slated to be some of the most awe inspiring for many months, if not years.
Interestingly, Earth will not be alone when it comes to the aurora phenomena, with Saturn also experiencing an increase in its own light shows, while Jupiter is said to face an increase in storm activity.
Scientists won’t know for certain when the flip happens, so we’ll likely have to wait another three weeks or so to get word. In the meantime, there’s no need to worry about the polarity flip, but every reason to marvel at it as one more in a list of the universe’s wonders.
November 12, 2013 … comet ISON develops a second tail AND TURNS BLUE per my prediction (listen to last thursday’s show for that exact statement) … the pic of amateur astronomer michael jagar did not show a copyright notice on the spaceweather web site so is posted here … too bad we have to depend on amateur pics when NASA has all the good equipment (over 60 instruments) focused on ISON but nary a trace of pics or data from those tight fisted clowns … note how comet ISON resembles the asteroid that went comet (pic in the next posting below) … of course spaceweather gives their fairy tale science version of what is causing a double tail (actually a common feature of comets) BUT listen to my show this week for a complete comet ISON update and explanation for why comets can exhibit 2 tails … but what about turning blue ?!?!? is it holding its breath too long ??? or is it due to a more intense electrical discharge as i stated on last week’s show when i made the prediction … changing from green to blue … once again surely NASA has the spectral analysis that would prove that this light is not reflected solar light but is intense luminosity of gases in the comet as its sunward electron current intensifies as it approaches the sun and as ISON begins to interact electrically with the planet mercury … they would also hold the data proving that the light is red shifted as explained in my Plasma Discharge Comet Model (see my eBook COMETS for details where i show comet spectrum with the predicted red shift) … jim mccanney
FOUR COMETS AND A FREAK ERUPTION OF AN ASTEROID (ON STEROIDS) … it is time to wake up early everyone … what i have been talking about for a year NOW IS THE TIME !!! in the early morning sky we have FOUR comets with TWO (comet ISON and comet 2P/Encke) about to encounter the little planet Mercury … at the same time from behind … these are comets visible with small binoculars BUT what you should be looking at also is the planet Mercury … will it go comet ??? oddly enough a small asteroid just went comet … the pics are below from the Hubble space telescope … astronomers cannot explain it but you all know it is my Plasma Discharge Comet Model in action … astronomers admit that the asteroid is too hot to have water on the nucleus (so why do they also not admit that the hot dry rocks of comet nuclei cannot have water either ??? ) and anyway no water was observed … the brightened 6 tails could not have been not due to their standard “an asteroid hit it” because it has 6 tails and what is the chance that 6 asteroids hit it all at the same time ??? zipppoooo … clearly the asteroid went comet and the dust seen is coming INTO the comet (asteroid) … here are the pics

MAJOR X-CLASS SOLAR FLARE !
A Major X1.1 Solar Flare was reported at 4:29UT this morning around active region 11890. The energetic eruption occurred close to an earth-facing position on the solar disk which would imply the resulting coronal mass ejection should have components heading Earths way. A very bright Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) has been observed at the time of making this video, and possible impact on earths magnetic field is forecasted to occur on November 10th which should provide strong geomagnetic storm activity late November 10 into the 11th, the bulk mass seems to be heading well south of the ecliptic and a glancing blow would be the likely result. Associated with this eruption was a 10cm Radio Burst (TenFlare) reaching 1000 Solar Flux Units lasting 5 minutes and a Type II/IV Sweep Frequency Event.

Sat, 02 Nov 2013
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.

Ok I know you’re all getting bored with my constant Solar updates….. But I’ve got one more (for today, lol), and then I would like to discuss WHY I’m posting them.
After reporting on the X Class flare in yesterday mornings update, yesterday afternoon and evening we had another X Class flare, 2.1, and M Class 1.9, and a M 2.3. And this morning so far we’ve had another M1.9 All four were from spot 1882 (which I mistakenly called 1862 yesterday- my bad). When 1882 started to swing in around the western limb of Sol, it was a smallish, simple Beta class spot. After reviewing all the charts last night I pointed out to my captive audience (Heather, Caleb and Nick- who were held captive around the dinner table, lol) (who, by the way, are also probably sick of my constant solar updates)(at least you can choose not to read them, they’re stuck with me, hahahah), that spot 1882, while being classified as a simple Beta, was definitely on the verge of getting broody…. I awoke this morning to see that they had upgraded the classification to Beta Gamma Delta.
I strongly suspect that we’ll continue to see action from 1882 and 1877. 1875 has had a couple of C and M class flares in the last 48 hours, but has quieted down and is now beginning to rotate away from direct Earth view.
We are currently experiencing the reflections of 4 separate CMEs that have hit in the past 24 hours.
Oh and after 12 Mclass and 2 X class flares in the last 72 hours, they upgraded the risks to M 65% and X 35%. Thanx for finally waking up guys.
Down below I’ll post a copy of SolarHams excellent review of the last 10 Flares and the current active Sun spots. *note there is one discrepancy: in the top 10 flares list, it states that the X 2.1 is attributed to 1877- this is a mistake and was corrected by NOAA to be 1882, which they DO list further down in the summary. I’ve tried to resize the page view to no avail, so I’m sorry if there are issues reading it accurately- you can go the original link HERE.
If you like looking at all the pictures and graphs from Solarham, you can also visit this nifty link from the NASA site: http://iswa.gsfc.nasa.gov/IswaSystemWebApp/ some of the filter shots of SOL are quite beautiful. Unfortunately NASA sucks at keeping it up to date. One would almost think they are hiding something…… lol.
Now to the “WHY”.
Back in November 2012 I posted THIS ARTICLE which gives a good basis for my thoughts on the importance of our Sun’s energetic activity:
I have always thought that solar energy is one of the greatest factors in our evolution of consciousness- hence my intense interest in Sol’s endless dance of light. Reading Daniel’s paper on “Geoengineering, Chemtrails, HAARP, World Orders, Time Lines & Ascension” really gave me a boost of “Eureka!!” as he directly linked the activity on and in our sun to the energetic changes happening to us, our planet, and our solar system.
This article also gives a simple explanation (although not quite accurate) of these effects:
A Renaissance in Consciousness
Solar cycles and their activity play an intimate part in the unfoldment of human consciousness. Solar flares affect the Central Nervous System (stomach lining), all brain activity (including equilibrium), all human and animal behavior and all psychophysiological (mental-emotional-physical) response.
Solar flares can cause some people to be nervous, anxious, worrisome, jittery, irritable, lethargic, to have short term memory loss, to feel nauseous, queasy, and have prolonged head pressure or head aches. They can also cause trouble with the radio, phone, Internet, computers, and all forms of communication–both human and technological.
Solar activity can also be stimulating, invigorating, illuminating, and create a heightened sense of awareness, and it can enhance vision and creativity tremendously. It especially stimulates the pineal gland in the brain, which is our center of vision and creativity. The pineal gland is a “neuroendocrine transducer” that converts gravitational-magnetic signals into chemical hormonal responses that control, via the hypothalamus, the pituitary gland. The pituitary is the master control center of the brain that governs the rest of the neurological system. This information expresses into the cellular structure of the individual–essentially into the molecular matrix of the cell in a “DNA Illumination Sequence” that is responsible for our evolutionary awakening. The pituitary is the administrative seat controlling cellular memory, and hence, the remembrance / emergence of our true selves.
How a person experiences enhanced solar activity is a function of the resonance of their physical neurology. If a person is crystalized with mental, emotional and physical blockages, then increase solar activity may seem uncomfortable. It is like trying to get something to improve in vibrational resonance that has resistance to do so. It a person has a more refined neurological resonance, that is for people that have done the inner work to clear mental, emotional and physical crystallizations, then enhanced solar activity is enlivening, and gives one a heightened perceptual awareness. In addition, if a person’s pineal gland is severely calcified, which is common amongst most humans and generally occurs at age six, partly due to the stifling of extra-sensory awareness and creativity when very young, then the pineal is not able to respond (vibrate) to increase “light” solar activity as it should.
Solar activity, although dramatic, catalyzes, and is essential for our evolutionary process by stimulating radical change and transformation in the organizational foundation of matter, energy and consciousness. Solar activity plays an intimate role along with the dynamic transition in Earth’s precessional cycle, and the erect precessional cross which occurred around 1998-2000 A.D. and which began the “time of change” in Earth’s ~25,000-year “Evolutionary Cycle of the Soul.” Solar flare activity and other stellar explosions (supernovas) are the primary catalysts that stimulate a renaissance in consciousness. They provide cosmic impulses that supports the evolutionary maturation of the incarnate soul–the illumination of consciousness that we all seek.
Remember, solar activity illuminates consciousness, dissolving duality’s paradox – the fear and judgment based monsters within are consumed in Light – old patterns of behavior vanish, while true elegance and majesty of self emerges.
Unconditional Love banishes Fear – a choice.
Choose a new octave of participation in harmony and beauty,
above the raging tempest of the old world.
So as I’ve said before, if you’re feeling the physical effects of all this amazing solar energy, slow down, take it easy and rest as much as possible. One of my favourite things to do is to go outside and sit back and close my eyes and feel the sun on my face. Imagining it bathing me in positive energy, feeling it flow into me, energizing me.
….. and a little Vitamin D never hurts either!
Since writing this article, almost a year ago, I’ve sent quite a bit of time studying our Sun, and tying together the dots of information here and there that have further solidified my opinion that SOL is definitely triggering changes in us and our planet and is/will be one of the prime catalysts in awakening our latent DNA and re-opening that 90% of our brain that is currently pretending to be nothing more than grey squishy stuff. I’m not going to get into all the details that I’ve been studying and researching- that would make this article at least 50 pages long and would take probably well over a week just to organize it all. But I will outline some of the various aspects to the research that I’ve done that has been literally mind blowing when you start to connect the dots.
One of the very blatant dots that has been reinforced over and over is that the world “Governments” are completely aware of ALL of this and doing everything in their power to Stop or at least slow down what is happening. Their biggest weapons in their arsenal: Chemtrails and Vaccines. Followed by Fuoride and the usage of mind numbing medications to dumb down the population and make them more complacent, and of course the Main Stream Media and their mega team of paid shills. Oh and the skin cancer scare and sun screen….. you’ll understand that last one in a minute.
Years ago I watched a video by David Wilcock talking about the effects of solar radiation/particles/waves on seeds that had been sent into space. (sorry I can’t remember which one it was). David outlined that the difference between the NASA experiment and the one done by the Chinese was that the US based NASA space vehicles are heavily insulated with Aluminum – and their seeds showed no effect from their trip into space. The Chinese space vehicles on the other hand are NOT heavily insulated with Aluminum and their seeds produced incredible results when planted back on Earth after spending time in space. The contrast of the outcome was night and day.
….there have also been many articles that talk about the “space euphoria” that astronauts experience while outside of the planet’s atmosphere…. hence the reason they so heavily insulate the ships with Aluminum.
When I listened to this the very first thing that hit me was usage of Aluminum in Vaccines- what better way to “insulate” humans from solar particles/rays than to flood their systems with particulate Aluminum? Many people who have discovered the toxicity of vaccines get side tracked by the “Mercury” debate, and over look the Aluminum factor. I had a conversation with Dr. William Sears (a leading pediatrician in the US and outspoken about vaccines and their questionability) about Aluminum, and he outlined that many babies receive several HUNDRED times the recommended daily amount of Aluminum for ADULTS in a single batch of regularly scheduled vaccines! Just think about that for a moment.
Next we have Chemtrails. One of the main ingredients in chemtrails is …. Aluminum! Why? Well, it’s nice and shiny so it bounces back the sun’s light before it reaches Earth, it also forms a physical barrier for light to get through, AND….. it’s a natural insulation that they KNOW blocks the Solar rays.
Scientist have knows for a long while that the Suns “radiation” can cause “mutations” and physical changes to living organisms, but recently, in the stream of transparency that is flooding across our planet (and universe), there have been several articles that prove not only that we really ARE Beacons of Light, but that light is also a vital component to communication- on the macro and microcosmic levels- healing our bodies and “upgrading” ourselves.
This article “Is DNA the next internet?” is one that every person should read at least once. It touches on a vast assortment of amazing discoveries on the topics of Cels, DNA, cellular communication, light, frequencies- everyone will find something that resonates intensely in this article, trust me!
“There are about 100,000 chemical reactions happening in every cell each second. The chemical reaction can only happen if the molecule which is reacting is excited by a photon… Once the photon has excited a reaction it returns to the field and is available for more reactions… We are swimming in an ocean of light.”
“Traditionally viewed as the cell’s ‘bone-like’ scaffolding, microtubules and other cytoskeletal structures now appear to fill communicative and information processing roles. Theoretical models suggest how conformational states of tubulins within microtubule lattices can interact with neighboring tubulins to represent, propagate and process information as in molecular-level ‘cellular automata’ computing systems.” — Hameroff and Watt, 1982; Rasmussen et al, 1990; Hameroff et al, 1992
In their paper, Hameroff and Penrose present a model linking microtubules to consciousness using quantum theory. In their model, quantum coherence emerges, and is isolated in brain microtubules until a threshold related to quantum gravity is reached. The resultant self-collapse creates an instantaneous “now” event. Sequences of such events create a flow of time, and consciousness.
Don’t worry if you can’t understand this. It’s heavy reading but it does show that the existence of internal photons — inner light — is very real and is the basis of virtually all human cellular and systemic function.
When we look at sunlight and the body’s functions that are directly influenced by that light, I can see the dots that tie together so many aspects of our body’s functions in healing and protection and the direct lines to what has been done by those who’ve tried to interfere with these processes.
As I said, I cannot possibly go into all the detailed research here, but a few pieces that I’ll put out for you to look at at your leisure are:
Melanin: We all know that this is the stuff that gives us a golden tan in the sun, but it’s not just a pretty colourant that gives us a healthy glow.
For many dominant animals, melanin pigments are derivatives of the amino acid tyrosine. There are three basic types, namely eumelanin, pheomelanin, and neuromelanin. …
… Neuromelanin is present in the brain, but its function remains obscure. The production of melanin in human skin is called melanogenesis. This occurs by means of a process called “ultrafast internal conversion“, which enables melanin to dissipate more than 99.9% of the absorbed UV radiation as heat[
Neuromelanin (NM) is a dark polymer pigment produced in specific populations of catecholaminergic neurons in the brain. Humans have the most number of NM, while they are in lesser amount in other non-human primates, and totally absent in lower species. However, the biological function remains unknown, although human NM has been shown to efficiently bind transition metals such as iron, as well as other potentially toxic molecules.
Neuromelanin also binds to Aluminum. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1450944 ….also damn interesting eh?
Although the functional nature of neuromelanin is unknown in the brain, the pigment is made from oxyradical metabolites of monoamine neurotransmitters including dopamine and norepinephrine.
Neurotransmitters….. kinda like “scaffolding, microtubules and other cytoskeletal structures now appear to fill communicative and information processing roles.”….as in the super highway of the brain and nervous system.
So we have Neuromelanin, which is a sub group of Melanin, which is triggered by sunlight, that binds Aluminum (among other things) and works with dopamine- which is a neurotransmitter and plays a vital role in several aspects of health- physical and mental (and spiritual?) – I highly recommend looking at the further information on dopamine as it’s a very very interesting subject- you can start HERE.
The Pineal gland secretes melatonin which activates the pituitary gland to release MSH (melanocyte stimulating hormone) it is in the melanocytes that melanin is produced. The Pineal gland is directly linked to the pituitary gland and the hypothalmus, which are all inter-connected to the photosensitive cells of the human eye, which relay “sunlight” to the deepest inner parts of the brain, ie: to the pineal, pituitary and hypothalamus.
That is a lot to take in, I know, and it goes a hell of a lot deeper than all that. Now….. let’s get back to where we started with all of this: The effects of the Sun on humans. and of course, what the PTW are trying to do to stop those effects. The Powers That Were have spent ginormous amounts of money, time and effort to not only get us out of the sun (think: spf sunblock in everything and the skin cancer fear porn, sunglasses that block the rays from the brain centers, etc..), to physically blocking that sun light through the use of chemtrails, to “insulating” our bodies with vaccines containing aluminum…..
My opinion- based on what research I can do (without being a neuroscientist or astrophysicist) and what resonates with me- is that our Sun’s rays are an integral part of our human health- mental, physical and on a deeper level, spiritual (for lack of a better term). I believe that the sun is/will play a very active role in our “waking up”, turning on the rest of our “useless” DNA strands, and activating the sleeping part of our brains that have been dormant for so so long.
Solar Flares, Coronal Mass Ejections, Solar winds and tsunamis and storms, all effect humans (and all biological systems) on all levels – this is scientific fact. I truly believe there is no such thing as coincidence with what is happening with Sol, the solar maxim and it’s very strange behavior this cycle.
And so….I write these articles to let people know what’s happening around us and the physical effects of the incoming flares and CMEs and geomagnetic storms. I tried to not write a book, but it’s turned into a bit of an epic article after all, lol.
Pay attention to the sky my friends….. what we have been taught about our Sun in school and through the media, isn’t the truth. Our Sun is expanding and we are growing with it.
ps: there was another M Class 1.8 while I was writing this.

|Sunspot Magnetic Class : The magnetic class of sunspots is important in determining how potentially volatile particular active regions may be. Sunspots are regularly observed using instruments capable of determining the magnetic polarity of sunspots and active regions. By also applying laws which have been formulated over the years, visual observations can also be used to establish the magnetic polarity and complexity of spot groups. There are basically 7 magnetic types of sunspots that are classified. They are described as follows:
A – Alpha (single polarity spot).
B – Beta (bipolar spot configuration).
G – Gamma (atypical mixture of polarities).
BG – Beta-Gamma (mixture of polarities in a dominantly bipolar configuration).
D – Delta (opposite polarity umbrae within single penumbra).
BD – Beta with a Delta configuration.
BGD – Beta-Gamma with a Delta configuration.
Example: A region labelled as having a magnetic classification of BG indicates that the sunspot region contains a mixture of magnetic polarities, but the dominant polarity of the group is bipolar. Potentially very powerful and potent regions are those which have classifications of BG, BD and BGD. As magnetic complexity increases, the ability of an active region to spawn major energetic events likewise increases.
Annular total solar eclipse will sweep over the Atlantic Ocean and the middle of Africa on November 3, 2013. The eclipse will be total only along a narrow path over the Atlantic Ocean and equatorial Africa from Gabon to Somalia. Most of Africa, the Middle East, southern Mediterranean including Spain, northern South America, and the Caribbean will see the partial phase of the eclipse.
It is the last eclipse this year, and also the second solar eclipse and fifth eclipse overall in 2013. This particular eclipse is 23rd of the 72 eclipses in Saros 143 cycle.
What makes makes it more special is that it will be annular eclipse along the first 15 seconds before it transits to a total eclipse phase due the Moon’s shadow which will pass close enough to the Earth to cover the disk of the Sun. Eclipse like this is rare and its called a hybrid eclipse.
At 10:04 UTC the partial phase of the eclipse begin and after one hour an annular eclipse follows. After 15 seconds the eclipse transitions from an annular to a total along its track.The point of greatest eclipse, with a maximum duration for totality at 1 minute & 40 seconds, starts at 12:46 UTC, occurring off of the SW coast of Liberia along the coast of Africa.

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.
