LINK: Here's a good LINK for 'space weather warnings' in case you want to know what's going on: http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/rt_plots/kp_3d.html
Look at the diagram above. It is quite profound.
For those of you who are not acquainted with my 'TUTORIALS', you will not realize what this means.
To those of you who are familiar with my 'space weather' tutorials as "the Biblical Biochemist" whose 'hobby' is studying things such as this....you will note that this is an unusually 'high' level for the Kp index.
The above reflects the energy from the sun ('space weather') that is currently affecting the earth or which has the potential to affect the earth in 1-3 days....my estimate.
We are currently in a period of 'solar minimum', which means that in the world of astrophysics, the sun is 'quiet' for longer periods of time...but when it DOES finally 'erupt' with solar flares and the like, those events are all the more 'profound'.
Such is the case now.
There's been quite a 'jog' magnetically for the earth:
No, I can't tell you exactly 'how' the earth will be affected. All I can say is that the earth WILL be affected in the form of severe weather, earthquakes, satellite disruptions, perhaps tsunamis, tornadoes and any number of unsavory weather events.
I'm a little surprised myself to see that things are flaring up like this at this time. Perhaps the 'only thing' you will notice is some minor interruptions while watching your cable t.v.
(That would be the pesky proton storm in progress, knocking out those satellite transmissions, by the way.)
Here's a 'graph' of just that:
Solar flares are both 'cool' and incredible to witness and recently we've had some 'humdingers'.
Here's a look at some recent 'solar flares'...also known as 'solar eruptions' or 'coronal mass ejections (CMEs):For your edification, solar flare activity is officially at a 'HIGH' with 8 M-class flares and 13-C class flares in the past 2 days.
It's not that common to have a 'HIGH' flare level, just so you know.
The area 'most likely to flare' is number 11302.
Please check out all these sites yourselves.
Educate yourself as to what may be happening at this time in earth's history.
I just find it interesting that just as some of the very worst of human nature appears to be manifesting itself here on earth (just read the news!) that solar 'events' are concurrently...'flaring up'!
What do you think? What are your plans for your families if and when a natural disaster strikes in your area?
Please be prepared for whatever may come.
And please prepare yourself spiritually for the same.
Remember that the 'old will pass away' according to Scripture and so I pray that you are all prepared in all ways.
May God Bless & Protect Us All
