BREAKING NEWS: M6.3 Solar Flare Rifles From Region 1429
Mitch Battros - Earth Changes
On March 8, 2012 at 8:37 PM (PST), an M6.3 solar flare has shot off from sunspot region 1429. This event comes on the shoulders of March 7th X5.4 flare which has not yet completed its impact on Earth's magnetic field.
The usual time frame from solar event to impact on Earth is between 48 and 72 hours depending on the magnitude of the flare. This means it will be sometime on March 9th to feel the impact of Mar. 7th's X5.4. Soon after (within hours) the impact of tonight's Mar.8th M6.3 flare will hit Earth's magnetic field.
The FAA is set to place a warning for all "high-flying" aircraft to maintain lower altitudes with a ceiling of perhaps 32,000 feet. All Air-Force military assets are already on alert for potential damaged satellites (both communication and armed).
The United States Department of Energy (DOE), has been placed on full alert assessing power grid facilities and back-up protocol. Yes, this is what an active Sun can do here on Earth. What is less know, is the impact of charged particles on the human body. Hint: One of the reasons for the FAA to place a low ceiling mandate is due to "radiation." The second reason is the airplane's computer system. I'm told pilots are trained to navigate large aircraft such as a 777 or 747 with a "dead stick", but I hope like hell I or my family is never on one when it does.
I was pleased to see all the major news agencies coverage of the March 7th event - except from one major flaw. Many of the agencies got their time-lines wrong. Some were reporting the March 7th X5.4 is over and all is well. WRONG. Even as of this writing at 9:29 PM (PST) of Mar. 8th, we have not yet felt the full impact of the X-flare. None the less, I am pleased to see the United States and the world receiving import information they the ECM community has been receiving for over 15 years.
