Strong Solar Flare & CME: After days of suspenseful quiet, huge sunspot AR2665 finally erupted on July 14th (0209 UT)

It produced a powerful and long-lasting M2-class solar flare. Extreme ultraviolet telescopes onboard NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the blast:

Remarkably, the explosion persisted for more than two hours, producing a sustained fusillade of X-rays and energetic protons that ionized the upper layers of Earth’s atmosphere. Shortwave radio blackouts were subsequently observed over the Pacific Ocean and especially around the Arctic Circle. This map from NOAA shows the affected geographic regions.

Of even greater interest is the coronal mass ejection (CME). The explosion hurled a bright CME away from the blast site, and it appears to be heading for Earth

This expanding cloud will likely reach our planet on July 16th, possibly sparking geomagnetic storms and high-latitude auroras when it arrives. Stay tuned for improved predictions as NOAA analysts model the trajectory and potency of the incoming CME. Free: Aurora Alerts

After delayed start, magnificent noctilucent clouds are back in full effect

Following a delayed start to the northern hemisphere’s 2017 Noctilucent clouds season, the magnificent, electric-blue clouds are now back in full effect.

Noctilucent, or night-shining, clouds are a seasonal phenomenon, occurring most often in late spring and summer. They are composed of tiny cristals of water up to 100 nm in diameter and are formed at a height of about 85 km (54 miles), higher than any other clouds. In the northern hemisphere, the best time to observe them would be during local summer, between mid-May and the end of August. 

This year, they were briefly spotted late May over Denmark, Germany and UK, but that’s when something happened and they mysteriously disappeared.

Sudanese authorities said Sunday, June 25, 2017, they have recovered fragments of meteorites which struck a remote area of the state of White Nile in the south of the state at dawn on Wednesday, June 21. Eyewitness reports mention loud sound and a bright light that illuminated the night sky of several regions in the state. The meteorite matter is reportedly the size of a small car.

According to the Sudan Tribune, the head of the geological team, dispatched by the General Authority for Geological Research (GAGR), and the technical arm of the Ministry of Mineral, Osman Abu Aqla, said they surveyed all the areas where the meteorites had been observed in the White Nile State and collected some fragments of the meteor in Alabbasiya area of Kosti locality. “The retrieved samples are stone meteorites,” Abu Aqla said.

The first samples were collected on Saturday, June 24, Alrakoba reports.

What’s next? NASA Creates ‘Artificial SPACE CLOUDS’; The canisters dispensed barium, strontium, cupric-oxide, which interacted to form blue-green & red vapors

After multiple scrubbed launch attempts over the last 30 days, a Terrier-Improved Malemute sounding rocket finally blasted off from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia at 4:25 a.m. on June 29th.  The resulting display of “space clouds” was worth the wait……(or not?)

Christopher Becke captured this star-trailed image from Williamsburg, Virginia. “I was 82 miles from the launch site but had no trouble seeing the rocket or the clouds,” he says.

During the 8-minute flight, the rocket deployed 10 canisters about the size of soft drink cans more than 100 miles above Earth’s surface. The canisters dispensed barium, strontium and cupric-oxide, which interacted to form blue-green and red vapors visible from New York to North Carolina. According to the space agency, the chemicals “pose[d] no hazard to residents along the mid-Atlantic coast.”

“As the canisters fired, the erupting colors were vivid and brilliantly apparent,” reports onlooker Susan Milligan of Williamsburg VA. “The photos hardly do them justice.”

Such clouds allow scientists on the ground to visually track particle motions at the edge of space, giving them new insights into the dynamics of Earth’s ionosphere.

(great solution more rockets and more chemicals to fix what is not possible to fix…right on!)

Generally speaking, Cosmic Rays are increasing throughout the Entire Solar System..!

Posted in 2017, astronomy, Galaxy with tags , , , on June 27, 2017 by theboldcorsicanflame

newhampshirevscalifornia_strip.png

For the past two+ years, Spaceweather.com and the students of Earth to Sky Calculus have been monitoring cosmic rays in the atmosphere above California using high-altitude space weather balloons. After more than 100 flights, they find that dose rates have increased over the Golden State by 13% since March 2015.

The Earth to Sky team has flown balloons over Maine and New Hampshire four times since 2015, most recently on June 15, 2017. Although the data are relatively sparse compared to the better-sampled west coast, the results are clear. Radiation in the stratosphere over the northeastern corner of the USA is not only stronger than California, but also intensifying much faster–a 19% increase in New England vs. 13% in California.

What’s happening? Generally speaking, cosmic rays are increasing throughout the entire solar system. This is because of the sunspot cycle. The sun is currently plunging toward a deep Solar Minimum. As it descends, the sun’s weakening magnetic field and flagging solar wind provides less and less shielding against high-energy particles from deep space. Every planet in the Solar System is getting an extra dose.

The difference we see between California and New England is telling us something local about Earth. After the sun’s magnetosphere deflects many cosmic rays, Earth’s magnetic field and atmosphere provide another line of defense. Our data show that central California is better defended by geomagnetism than New England.

Cosmic rays penetrate commercial airlines, dosing passengers and flight crews enough that pilots are classified as occupational radiation workers. Some research shows that cosmic rays can seed clouds and trigger lightning, potentially altering weather and climate. Furthermore, there are studies ( #1, #2, #3, #4) linking cosmic rays with cardiac arrhythmias in the general population.

Jellyfish Sprites Over Europe, 80 km high above the clouds

On June 20th, a thunderstorm in Austria unleashed a spectacular display of lightning. Observers on the ground witnessed blinding flashes of crackling light. The most amazing aspect of the outburst, however, was to be found high above the clouds. 80 km high, to be exact, in the realm of the sprites

Martin Popek photographed the display from his private observatory in Nýdek, Czechia, more than 500 km away from the storm. Such distances are ideal for seeing above the tops of towering thunderclouds: diagram.

“Jellyfish sprite events like these are produced by very impulsive cloud-to-ground lightning flashes draining positive charge from the stratiform rain region in large thunderstorms,” explains lightning scientist Oscar van der Velde of the Technical University of Catalonia, Spain. Somehow, in a process that researchers only partially understand, the resulting electric fields draw jellyfish forms out of the cloudtops.

The tops of the sprites were surrounded by a saucer-like halo of red light, notes van der Velde. “The halo is evidence of intense electric fields at 80-90 km shaking up the electrons (colliding with nitrogen to produce light) for such a short time that sprite streamers cannot form. At lower altitudes the field exists longer, allowing the jellyfish sprite streamers to grow from electron avalanches.”

Although sprites have been seen for at least a century, most scientists did not believe they existed until after 1989 when sprites were photographed by cameras onboard the space shuttle.
