Giant sunspot shoots out intense, X-class Solar flare

By Jason Samenow
-

[The sunspot] is so wide it stretches roughly 139,000 kilometers
across the sun which is about 11 Earth diameters. This particular
sunspot is even larger than its predecessor, AR1515, which was visible
on the sun last week before it rotated around to the back side of the
sun.

TheWashingtonPost

A massive sunspot region facing Earth - known as 1520 - has unleashed a
large solar flare. NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center says the
flare is rated an X1.

  • "On July 6, a similarly sized flare caused no significant problems on Earth. Thursday's flare, classified as an X1.4, was much smaller than the X5.4 flare that erupted on March 7 and caused temporary outages of military satellites."

    • @joe prole - thank you for attempting to assuage the mounting fears that a catastrophic EVENT won't occur on planet earth, when all indicators at NASA are pointing to just exactly THAT. One really does wonder at this time what possibly could be your (and I mean plural) agenda could be? Do you sell AC's? Listen, for the 1000'th time - your money won't buy you your soul. It's over. Now on to the news if anyone was still reading this -

  • X class solar flares are nothing new. If it hits us no problem!! Those of us who can live in a world with no electricity will survive, not sure about the rest of you though...

      No no..I use it now, but I'm fully capable of living in the bush, off the grid and what not. Power is something that can be generated if you're staying in an area no problem and is definitely a nice thing to have, but by no means should it ever be someones necessity for survival.

  • DONT BE A FUCKING FEAR MONGER! This is no Carrington Event. Either you are ignorant or are trying to scare people. Whichever it is, the answer is STFU.

  • From Spaceweather.com

    Big sunspot AR1520 unleashed an X1.4-class solar flare on July 12th at 1653 UT. Because this sunspot is directly facing Earth, everything about the blast was geoeffective. For one thing, it hurled a coronal mass ejection (CME) directly toward our planet. According to a forecast track prepared by analysts at the Goddard Space Weather Lab, the CME will hit Earth on July 14th around 10:20 UT (+/- 7 hours) and could spark strong geomagnetic storms.

    The explosion also strobed More..

  • Get used to it. Our magnetic field is getting weaker and weaker because a pole reversion is overdue 250,000 years and will happen soon.

    No, global warming doesnt cause it, it perfectly normal and happens regularly. Though "global warming" might be caused or influenced by a weaker magnetic field.

    • @coolhund Pole reversals take millions of years to take place, they don't happen instantly. RELAX.

    • @Tommyr
      They actually happen quite instantly and that has been proven already (up to 60° per 10 days). I just checked again, the average time between each is about 250,000 to 300,000 years and the last one happened 780,000 years ago. So we are LONG overdue. Its going to happen soon. The earths magnetic field has become steadily weaker and weaker for the last 100 years.

      Btw, the suns magnetic field is switching poles every 11 years.

      Oh and I am relaxing, because as I said, its perfectly normal More..
