Solar Storms Sending Biggest Threats to Earth Today and Tomorrow
Global positioning system and radio transmissions may be degraded through tomorrow as two solar eruptions strike Earth and affect its magnetic field.
The U.S. Space Weather Prediction Center is tracking two two coronal mass ejections, “huge expulsions of magnetic field and plasma” that shot out of an area near the center of the sun’s disc.
“Essentially the sun just shot out a magnet and it is about to interact with another magnet, Earth’s magnet,” William Murtagh, program coordinator of the U.S. Space Weather Prediction Center, said yesterday. When the ejections reach Earth, they will touch off geomagnetic storms that are forecast to last at least until tomorrow. . . .
Will this solar storm affect helicords’ display? Will anyone provide backup observation (like going to Lake FUBAR and looking at it)?
At 4 a.m. Lake FUBAR got the grumbles. we doubt it is cultural noise as work doesn’t usually start there before sun up.
We should pay attention to the weather now as storms from the east close in. Extra rain means extra weight on fragile cavern walls in Lake FUBAR!

ICELAND – “It Will Be Unlike Anything Ever Seen in Recorded History”
►”Scientists are now gravely concerned that the crater floor will soon collapse into a miles deep underground cavern filled with boiling white hot magma.
►”There’s 1 trillion gallons of water in the ice in Bardabunga crater.
►”When that falls into a lake of magma it will instantly flash into steam expanding 600 times in volume.
►”The magma, suddenly no longer contained by the crater floor and 1 trillion gallons of water will act like a shaken soft drink can when the top is popped.
►“It will be an event unlike anything ever seen in recorded history.
