According to Space.com, the explosion occurred Tuesday June 7 and had its peak at about 2:41 am. The coronal mass ejection’s type M flare that accompanied the eruption extended itself outwards for a period of three hours to then get back to the sun’s surface.

The explosion ejected solar plasma and particles at temperatures estimated around 143,540 degrees Fahrenheit or 79,727 degrees Celsius. “It’s nothing we really have to worry about,” said C. Alex Young, a solar astrophysicist at NASA.

Our sun is experiencing activity related to its eleven year cycle identified as solar cycle 24. Although scientists estimate that this eruption should not have major consequences on Earth, history shows that the only thing we know about the sun, is that we still have a lot to learn.

Japanese Earthquake predicted. Again.

Earthquake and volcanic activity danger extended up until April 11, according to Solar Watcher’s prediction from April 1.

Solar Watcher
April 7, 2011

Moving into a significant celestial period that may produce several large earthquakes through to April 11.

Main coronal hole is situated in the Southern Hemisphere 16-18 Degrees south latitude. Possible areas at risk for a 6.7+ magnitude earthquake could be Southern Peru, Potosi-Bolivia or Tarapaca-Chile.

Other significant coronal holes that may be Geoeffective during this watch period sits 7-10 Degrees south latitude. Possible areas that could receive a significant earthquake are Chagos Archipelago Region, Carlsberg Ridge in the Indian ocean or the Solomon Islands region.

Northern Hemisphere coronal hole expected to be earth facing April 5-6 is symmetrically mapped at 18-23 Degrees North latitude, best fit matched regions are Taiwan or Mariana Islands. there is also further possible volcanic activity in the region of Hawaii during this watch.

Extreme Weather and Earthquake Danger coming, warns Piers Corbyn

WeatherAction.com

The very active solar region which emerged from the SE limb of the sun on the morning of 21st March is crackling with dangerous activity including extreme UV radiation and up to 50Mev proton bursts and its appearance along with other active regions on the sun fits our WeatherAction.com long-range WARNING for significant weather extremes and earthquakes in the period around 23rd-27th March, issued during February.

Solar activity details: http://spaceweather.com/archive.php?month=03&day=21&year=2011&view=view ( = http://bit.ly/h13CuA ) and http://www.lmsal.com/solarsoft/latest_events/ Note the Spaceweather link already shows a solar wind stream from a coronal hole will hit Earth 23/24th March, the newly reported activity on the sun will lead to earth hits following that.

We warned of these dangers – with weather event detail for USA, West Europe, Australia, New Zealand and BanglaDesh in forecasts issued around the end of February and repeated on the posting “15/16…March THE DANGEROUS TIMES THE WORLD IS IN….”  http://bit.ly/enMFIy

Piers Corbyn says “The recent extreme Earthquake events in the world were preceded by extreme events on the sun – specifically X level solar flares and related proton bursts. It appears to us that it is always the case that extreme weather and earthquake events are preceded by extreme events on the sun and historically proton events which are usually associated with X flares are an especially reliable warning of extreme weather, storm formation and earthquake events. We have no forecast of specifically where the earthquake events are most likely except to say that the Pacific ‘ring of fire’ is very vulnerable and new serious earthquake events in Japan and /or the West USA are very possible. Some other researchers** have also been making warnings of earthquake events around the present period. My main risk periods are a bit later than theirs because although lunar tidal effects (such as ‘Supermoon’ 19th March) are important we find the solar hits are crucial determinants. **Links to these forecasts of others which include comments on possible regions are available via the link above – http://bit.ly/enMFIy

“The weather events are expected in two waves ~23/24th and ~26/27th and extreme earthquake events risk is significantly enhanced all through this period 23-27th but probably more enhanced later with high risk continuing a day or so after 27th.

“The long range predicted weather events in the double period 23-27th March include:

– Snow deluges / cold blasts in N/ NE Britain & NW Europe

– USA A double whammy of major snow & blizzards (esp 25-27th) Great Lakes & West thereof; Tornadoes in South

– Australia Tropical Cyclone formation likely East of Queensland and Tornado possible New Zealand (North Island) prob 23/24th. Tornado formation risk is high in Bangladesh 26/27th

Japanese Earthquake Predicted a Month Ago

Predictions were based on calculation related to solar activity; more specifically Coronal Mass Ejections in the northern hemisphere.

A couple of days ago, astrophysicist and meteorologist Piers Corbyn, who conducts weather, climate and tectonic plates studies based on solar activity supported the version on the video by saying not only that solar activity is part of the cause of the current ‘planetary unrest’, but also that the Super Full Moon (the moon is passing by closer to Earth in March) is also contributing to the such geological and magnetic activity.

“Christchurch, South Island New Zealand was struck by a damaging shallow level earthquake on 21 Feb and is suffering severe aftershocks,” cites Weatheraction.com.  “This event follows the world wide increase in volcanism and earthquakes in the last year or two and confirms the general statistical fact that more – and more serious – earthquakes, and volcanic activity, tend to occur around solar cycle minima.”

Corbyn’s description of events previous to the largest snow storms on the northern hemispheres this winter was also accounted for on his website.  “Major storms are also associated with solar proton events and significantly we had important solar proton events on January 28 just before our predicted world double whammy of the simultaneous mega blizzard USA and mega Tropical Cyclone Yasi hitting Queensland”.  Both Corbyn and the Solar Watcher base their observations and conclusions on solar activity.

The 9.1 -upgraded from 8.1- earthquake that hit Japan lifted the continent by eight feet and moved the planet’s axis by 10 inches or about 25 centimeters.  According to the data presented by Solar Watcher dated February 17-20, other places like south western California, India and New Zealand could be at risk of being hit by a significant event like the one experienced in Japan.

The tectonic events, says Solar Watcher, are due to major solar activity, characterized by X class solar flares occurring both in the northern and southern hemispheres of the sun.  According to the video, solar activity has been increasing and some of that activity has been more directly facing planet Earth (in the northern part of the Sun, 24-26 degrees north latitude), which makes its effects more meaningful.  “Once the solar spot moves from the Earth-facing position, we’re gonna be receiving more solar winds”, said the author, who warned the most likely region on planet Earth to experience a serious earthquake would be the Japanese islands.

Watch the video below.

In a more recent video, dated March 14-19, Solar Watcher issued another warming with lots of specificity for the Japanese islands, where it is believed another important event possibly two- will take place and could have magnitudes of around 7.5.  The reason? The symmetry between the areas where the sun is experiencing important activity, which according to the author is a cross-coronal area and the location of Japan, makes it very likely the next quake will hit that area of the planet. Equal attention is given to a possible event at or around the Saint Andreas fault.

Solar winds that currently blow at about 598 kilometers -up from 400km/sec- will decrease by about 200km/sec, which is the moment when Earth will more likely experience another major quake.  Such event could also occur in the vicinity of Baja California, moving down to the Saint Andreas fault at latitudes 29-33 degrees north.  Along with the pacific coast of the United States, the author southern Japan and southern Iran as well as Eastern China.  A major event could also spark activity at the La Palma Volcano in the Canary Islands.  This volcano has kept everyone’s attention due to the potential consequences an eruption there could have.

According to NASA after several years without a single X-flares, the sun produced two powerful explosions in a month; one on February 15th and the other on March 9th. The current activity is part of the beginning of ” the sun’s regular 11-year cycle and confirms that Solar Cycle 24 is indeed heating up”.  Additional activity is expected progressively as the Sun walks toward the so called solar maximum which experts see happening around 2013.

Extreme Super (Full) Moon to Cause Chaos?

Mar 1, 2011

Coming up later this month (March 19 to be exact) the moon will make its closest approach to Earth (called lunar perigee) in 18 years. A new or full moon at 90% or greater of its closest perigee to Earth has been named a “SuperMoon” by astrologer Richard Nolle. This term has been recently picked up by astronomers. An extreme “SuperMoon” is when the moon is full or new as well as at its 100% greater mean perigee (closest) distance to earth. By this definition, last month’s full moon, this month’s and next month’s will all be extreme “SuperMoons”.

Please visit Richard’s website by clicking here.

I have read several “new age” forecasts that go something like this: “Extreme SuperMoon this month (March 2011) will bring strong earthquakes and storms and/or unusual climate patterns.” Google the term ‘extreme SuperMoon March 2011’ and see for yourself what comes up. The validity of these types of forecasts can be debated ad nauseum.

There were SuperMoons in 1955, 1974, 1992 and 2005. These years had their share of extreme weather and other natural events. Is the Super Moon and these natural occurences a coincidence? Some would say yes; some would say no. I’m not here to pick sides and say I’m a believer or non-believer in subjects like this, but as a scientist I know enough to ask questions and try to find answers.

We obviously know that there are scientific laws that say the moon affects the Earth (i.e. tides). There are also less proven theories that propose that the moon affects the Earth in other ways (i.e. abnormal behavior during a full moon). Can the Super (full) Moon contribute to extreme weather and other natural phenomenon?

AccuWeather Facebook fanpage member Daniel Vogler adds, “The last extreme super moon occurred was on January 10th, 2005, right around the time of the 9.0 Indonesia earthquake. That extreme super moon was a new moon. So be forewarned. Something BIG could happen on or around this date. (+/- 3 Days is my guess)”

So what can we expect this time? Earthquakes? Volcanic eruptions? I guess we can only wait and see.
