Sunspot Shoots Powerful Solar Storm Toward Earth

by Dave Mosher
March 5, 2012

Magnetic disturbances on the sun hurled a colossal burst of charged particles into space overnight.

The solar storm erupted from the sunspot AR 1429 at 11:13 p.m. EST on Sunday, March 4. According to a NASA forecast, it should reach Earth between late Tuesday night and Wednesday.

The exact size of the burst, formally known as a coronal mass ejection, isn’t yet known, but in terms of energy it’s an X1.1-class eruption — among the strongest measured by astronomers.. A direct hit by an X-class storm can cause radio blackouts, cripple satellites and heat wires.

Thankfully, the current space forecast suggests only the edge of the burst should clip Earth. The Space Weather Prediction Center announced that the event may spawn a minor radiation storm on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Similar solar storms are expected to increase as the sun moves toward solar maximum, the end of an 11-year cycle in which its magnetic fields become increasingly contorted.

The sun’s worst magnetic contortions typically appear over sunspots. When magnetic field lines break and reconnect, charged particles traveling along them can be flung into space.

    Nothing to do with the weather would surprise me, one of these days HAARP is going to go too far and we will all go up in a puff of smoke, maybe thats as it should be, I can’t see this evil Government and its fringe crazies going any other way, unfortunately we will have to go with them.It is sheer madness on the EPA’s part to allow this to happen, just because some people have money doesnt’ give them the right to destroy our earth, even they will need ot come up from those 2 mile deep tunnels some time, if they are still able to.It has always amazed me the pure audacity of the elite to think they can do anything they want to the planet, not for any reason, not to better anything, not to cure cancer , just because they can, this shows total disregard for others as well as themselves and their own families, they think they can do anything and it won’t effect them, anything to do with HAARP will effect them and their families, it really will destroy the earth, do they have somewhere else to go besides hell? If they are not playing with the HAARP machines then we are really in trouble, if they dont’ leave them alone thsi horrible weather occuances will happen on their own and even they wont be able to stop it, the Rothchilds have their own weather machine, that doesnt make me feel safe, in all honesty I would rather the three stooges have it , I would feel safer. .
