End of WeDG

Hi all,
Due to well over two years of a clear lack of interest in this board, I will be closing it when the hosting is up next month (24 Aug). I see no reason to continue this with the lack of readership and participation.

It's been a wonderful 27+ years, with tons of ups and downs, but with all the excellent resources available to us online via Telegram, YouTube and other platforms - we've outgrown our purpose. I do not believe any huge modification/improvements to the site would help, plus that has always been way beyond my knowledge/skill set.

Y'all know how to reach me.

    That is very pretty MTC. I have some of those from last year too.

    I'll gladly trade some of those northern lights for a big bucket full of spring.

    Issachar, hoping we get at least one more big snow storm this season ... it's still winter ya know .


    Are you crazy?

    I saw robins yesterday so I'm praying they know what they are doing coming back early. No more snow for me thank you.

    Naw...tis spring, here. Everything is blossoming and we have 70's every day forecasted for the next 10 days. That'll probably change 10 times per day but we're pretty much through with winter...which is FINE with me!

    Cherry trees are BEAUTIFUL right now...FULL bloom.

    I'm not Boston, but no, it won't. In fact, that snow in your yard is probably one of the few defenses the earth has against these things.

    http://spaceweather.com/

    March 9th ended with a powerful solar flare. Earth-orbiting satellites detected an X1.5-class ( http://spaceweather.com/glossary/flareclasses.html ) explosion from behemoth sunspot 1166 around 2323 UT. A movie from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory shows a bright flash of UV radiation plus some material being hurled away from the blast site:

    A first look at coronagraph images from NASA's STEREO-B spacecraft suggests that the explosion did propel a coronal mass ejection (CME) toward Earth. This conclusion is preliminary, however, so check back later for updates.

    After four years without any X-flares, the sun has produced two of the powerful blasts in less than one month: Feb. 15th and March 9th. This continues the recent trend of increasing solar activity, and shows that Solar Cycle 24 is heating up. NOAA forecasters estimate a 5% chance of more X-flares during the next 24 hours.

    not many will notice the impact other than staticy am radio, but this one is getting up there in intensity

    right now the Interplanetary Mag. Field is also “south” adding to the impact potential
Working...
