Anybody see anything this morning
« on: August 04, 2010, 06:58:42 AM »
On my post-shower/get dressed for work trip out with the pup I looked skyward hoping to possible catch a glimpse of the aurora this morning. I know I am much too far south to see such a thing and my glimmer of hope was unceremoniously shattered by a crystal clear star filled sky.

I haven't seen the magical dancing multicolored ribbons of light since 1988 when I left the great white north. Did anybody catch a glimpse of them elsewhere.

Far too cloudy this morning.  Fog was so bad I could barely make out the top of the barn let alone the sky.

Here's what NASA said about it recently:

We have some idea of when the event is most likely to take place, according to NASA it is said that the earth will be hit by 4 waves of plasma: one late on Tuesday night, or early Wednesday morning around 3am (EST), the next is estimated to occur sometime around noon to 1pm on Wednesday, the third will hit sometime around 8pm Wednesday evening, and the fourth will hit on Thursday at 2am.  However, given that the waves are not moving in a perfect uniform manner it is difficult to pinpoint the exact time these events will occur.

Though the solar activity is happening earlier than previously anticipated, the coming solar storm in 2013 is expected to be far more dramatic, making whatever may occur during this event seem to be but a shadow of things to come.

it was actually a coronal mass ejection that just so happened to be on the side of the sun facing the earth....sunspots are still way down, but there was some real good radio propagation last night....I ended up talking to several stations in Australia and New Zealand well after sunset, which is rare from here....although we couldn't see it, there was aurora enhanced radio propagation last night...

...What is Plamsa? ...


....this is plasma, Lock-


....a 4rth state of matter; solid; liquid, gas, and plasma....

....'lerned' it on "I'm not Smarter Than a Fifth Grader"
;D ....

....on the other hand it's a relatively low-level solar storm and odds are north PA won't see much....

....remember the northern lights  at the Lake during the summer nights of 58 & 59?....
