Hm. We had, “Last Day to Jump,” on our calendars for today… and then this happened…
…early this morning:
Some of us also felt… a hot/warm area *above* the belt-line (ahem) last night, pulsing on and off, followed by uber-champagned-ness energy all over… and it occurred right before the above jump.
Also, it looks like the recent flare/CME energy made landfall:
Here it is hitting the Tixie riometer:
Hacks like SpaceWeather tow the party line with their “coronal hole” noise. [insert Aussie accent: “The Coronal Hole TOOK MY BAYBEE!”] But wait, there’s more!
And in case you were wondering: “GOSH, might there be some muonic telltale beating in the floor??” Well, you’re psychic Timmy! Thar she blows!…
And a little Kiruna zoomage:
The current peak of the latest incoming solar energy (regular) is around 11:00 am PST. Wave X energy will be of course increasing till either your CNS melts or you find yourself “on the green” at Downton Abbey, as it were.
Speaking of timeline jumps… not sure we’ve mentioned these before, but sometimes the sun just “turns things on” in what’s called, “solar dimming”:
Check out these little animated snippets:
That’s enough for meow… er, now.
And this shows you how unreliable Spaceweather.com is:
That’s a HAARP hole, not a “fallstreak hole.” We’d written off this site long ago, anyway.
As for the aforementioned sun anomaly, we don’t have time to work up an animation, so here are two images you can use:
For those interested, download the above images then run through them quickly, and observe the faint dark blobs that appear at the sun’s equator, oscillating on and off occasionally. We’ve been seeing this activity for some time, and it’s getting more and more prevalent.
We had stopped looking at MIMIC since they dropped the old system (that was easier to use to pick up HAARP and Wave X activity, hence the drop), but the new system actually showed what the old system was picking up: total Wave X swampedness:
We’ve never seen this microwave meter do this.
Sorry for the delay, we’re always slow on the uptake on Saturdays. We had another high-energy night last night (that is, early Saturday morning). It is the first time we think that *all* the CATs slept late — till 10:00 am! The below happened right in the middle of it (08:01 UTC is midnight PST):
This was all that CME/flare energy come home to roost:
And we had a muon thing a little while ago…
…and an SR blip:
More as it happens.
