MessageToEagle.com – According to recent info from Space Weather Prediction Center on September 28, 2012 at20:37 TC – G2 (Moderate) Geomagnetic Storming is expected.
A filament eruption near end-of-day September 27th resulted in a brief S1 (Minor) radiation storm.
However, the Earth-directed coronal mass ejection (CME) associated
with this event is en route and is expected to affect Earth mid to late
day on September 30th (Eastern time), with storming continuing into the
“The sun erupted with a wide, Earth-directed coronal mass ejection (CME) on Sept. 27, 2012 at 10:25 p.m. EDT” we read on NASA’s website.
“CMEs are a phenomenon that can send billions of tons of solar
particles into space that can reach Earth one to three days later,
affecting electronic systems in satellites and on the ground.
Experimental NASA research models estimate that the CME is traveling at
around 700 miles per second and will reach Earth on Sept. 29.”
“The CME is associated with a fairly small solar flare that was
measured as C-class, which is third in strength after X- and M-class
flares. The flare peaked at 7 p.m. EDT and came from an active region on
the sun labeled AR 1577.”
