    This thing is dangerous, dude, it's not a TV show. It could wipe out electric grids, satellites, computers, etc.

    Anybody else notice that during periods of high flare activity cell phone service goes absolutely balls up?

    It's not dangerous to me. I would love to see it dazzling in the atmosphere!

    If you're paranoid, then maybe you should put your electronics in a vault made of lead.

    That's where I put mine. Damned Superman always spying on me when I'm playing games and such.

    Re: Massive solar flare

    We are moving into an 11year cycle of Solar Maximum that will hit it's peak next years.

    We were lucky this time that the direction of the flare was not at us, because the damage possible from the Solar flare particles is beyond anything we have seen, not only here but to satellites and the Space station.

    Thanks to dumb-asses all communications in some places could be wiped out for a while leaving us blind deaf and dumb,

    But take heart this was not a killer shot, but you might to told it could be by a Guest on Coast to Coast Am, it's what they so all the time.


    Kind of pretty in these colors.

    Thanks, my PC is still in warranty.
    However, that was a big one, almost half of the Sun. And the Sun is really big, 109 times bigger than mother Earth.
    Make yourself an experiment - take a quarter coin, measure it, than multiply 109 and have a look - you will visualize the actual proportions Sun-Earth.

    That helps me to measure the sun, but it doesn't explain why I should be panicking over a solar flare. Because I'm not.

    If the sun goes supernova or suddenly turns off, then I'll be worried. Although, I'd be dead before I really had time to care.

    This flare? No, it couldn't. It's not pointed directly at us.
