For the second day in a row we have a Tropical Storm "power up" and as you have seen in my previous report my interpretation of this is that there is a major shot of solar activity going on, but its just...er..invisible.....indicating magnetism rather then the effect of a CME
In a statement Solar Climate Change and Hurricane "Sandy", issued on the 1st November last year, I gave an account of Hurricane "Sandy" powering up TWICE during a similar R5+ period, and now Cyclone "Felleng" seems to have done the same.
Most if not virtually all the people who followed the Hurricane "Sandy" situation missed the major Earthquake story in Canada (M7.7) due to the USA elections. Take it from me, the TWO events WERE related.....what next?
From an analysis made on the Piers Corbyn R4+ periods, there IS a higher then average chance of a M6.5+ or M7+ Earthquake likely to happen any time soon.....more to follow.
What is the current cause of the Tropical Storm "power up"?
Currently there appears to be not much going on, on the surface of the Sun, however as we can see by the Tropical storm "power up" indicator, it would seem that there IS a lot going on in regard to solar activity and the location of the coronal hole is a key factor in all this.
The latest news from SpaceWeather.com.....MAGNETIC FILAMENT: A bushy filament of magnetism is snaking over the sun's northeastern limb. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory took this extreme UV picture of the structure, which stretches more than 150,000 km from end to end, during the early hours of Jan. 30th
If this filament becomes unstable, as bushy magnetic filaments often do, it could erupt and hurl a portion of itself into space. Amateur astronomers with backyard solar telescopes are advised to monitor developments.
If the filament does erupt, it will likely be the only solar activity today. No sunspots are actively flaring. NOAA forecasters estimate a slim 1% chance of M-class solar flares during the next 24 hours.....click SpaceWeather.com link for more
From the 31st Jaunuary to the 3rd February there is a Major Solar/Lunar event taking place with a top rating of R5+.....stay tuned for more CLICK to read all recent articles
