For you geeks out there..lol

A nice little loop of the solar flare from last night. Geomagnetic storm to be here tomorrow morning, which means some nice aurora/ northern lights. Enjoy if you live north and heck if it is strong enough, maybe even mid US. You'll see the image with a bunch of spots/ static looking. That is the radiation hit the satellite.

I hope so.

I have heard before that a massive solar flare back in the wild west days hit telegraph wires so bad it actually caught the poles on fire. I don't know if that is true or not but imagine what that would do to all our fancy electronics we have now. =@

Send us back to the stoneage for a few weeks, maybe months. Welcome Taliban and Al Qaeda... <_<

Doesn't get better than Alaska for the Northern Lights ;)

Take some vids and pictures for your southern SMD brothers.

For reals!!

It's suppose to be a G3 level. Basically it affects:

G 3

Strong

Power systems: voltage corrections may be required, false alarms triggered on some protection devices.

Spacecraft operations: surface charging may occur on satellite components, drag may increase on low-Earth-orbit satellites, and corrections may be needed for orientation problems.

Other systems: intermittent satellite navigation and low-frequency radio navigation problems may occur, HF radio may be intermittent, and aurora has been seen as low as Illinois and Oregon (typically 50° geomagnetic lat.)**.

Being I work with Polar satellites, it is of some concern on the drag and the electronics of some of our older birds (satellites). I doubt it will be real bad, but looking at that scale, it shows the damage these geomagnetic storms can do. Stone age...about right and without a quick recovery. You'd have to launch a new bird in some/ most cases.
