Sorry, we fell asleep at the switch again. We’ve had Yet Another Timeline Jump.
We’re going to carry some of the previous post updates forward.
We has this Wave X burst this morning. It looked like it was gonna hurt:
We said this morning that we might feel its effects quick, and feel it we did:
As expected, the above solar blast is being felt NOW, as both a timeline jump (that many have written about experiencing today), as well as a triple ouchie blast (see it there on the far right?).
It showed up elsewhere:
It also showed up as a CME:
It’s been felt from the top-down, from the most sensitive to the least sensitive of the CATs, usually in that order. It seems to have let some if us go for the time being, but symptoms included sudden headache, extreme fatigue, somatic heat, and an itching then inexplicable closing of the eyes (even if you’re not tired). There was also a feeling we can’t quantify, like we’re thirsty… but we’re not thirsty… we have a craving for something… yet don’t want to eat or drink. We have no idea what that one means. Could just be us.
Don’t forget to Ground (to either the OE or the NE), Protect, and BREATHE through the energy. If you have a paper lantern… wear it.
Around the time of the above timeline jump, this little bundle hung out in one CAT’s Japanese maple for ten full minutes this morning, which is quite unlike them. They usually flit about, but this guy was very calm… and very yellow:
Look at MIMIC get swamped by the Wave X energy:
Another CME, a pretty big one…
…it’s gonna hit Stereo B hard… but it doesn’t work, anyway. No idea when we’ll feel the effects of this, if we do.
Also, there are so many ships coming out of Portal One that it’s almost not worth covering. Here are a few clips, and the whole timelapse:
There were also a couple other energy events. Here’s one of them:
[FYI, we moved this post up one.]
Here’s what that CME looked like:
Here’s a view of the *next* one:
These are being listed as CMEs and flares, but CACTUS (seen at bottom) is treating them all as CMEs. We’re gonna guess that we’ll feel the effects of these beginning this evening, and then one after the other, as there were more mini-CMEs in-between:
Then there’s another event, that looks like the opposite sort of the above energy:
Here they all are:
These are the root events that drive the “solar wind” that some people keep citing.
More as we find it.
