This is pretty cool [emphasis added] We all know what comes out of the bottom of thunderclouds: lightning. But rarely do we see what comes out of the top. On August 10th, astronauts onboard the International Space Station were perfectly positioned to observe red sprites dancing atop a cluster of storms in Mexico. A few minutes after … Continue reading Sprites and Trolls at the Edge of Space
A new telescope has peered into the Sun to see solar magnetic flux ropes for the first time. Severe flux rope twists have been described as being like “earthquakes” on the sun, and are linked to eruptions of large solar flares that change magnetic fields, and cause radiation and energetic particles to rain on Earth. We … Continue reading Jo Nova – ” The Sun does not affect Earth’s climate. (Good boys and girls. You are fit for a government grant.)”
https://youtu.be/CTghS0UYQSE The filament is the long strip on the right that looks like something from a Dulux paint advert. A small 'pizza slice' coronal hole is just passing center disc, with a much larger but weak one in coming (top right). This is the last 48 hours in 193 Angstroms. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V63dLP86RO0 As the filament was lifting off … Continue reading Enormous Solar Filament Erupts – Tropical Storm Forms
https://dailymotion.com/video/x2o2k78 Above and below the Nepal earthquake captured as it happened. It is all the more poignant when you see how every day normal life was happening only to be snatched away in an instant. The BBC reported on a previous time when the same fault ruptured - Saturday's magnitude-7.8 earthquake struck to the north-west … Continue reading Nepal Earthquake – Similar pattern seen at start of Little Ice Age
Ben Davidson discusses the solar factors leading to the Nepal earthquake. Unlike the vile but deluded believer on Twitter claiming a link to Climate Change, Ben has been warning what was to come for days. Not some vague CO2 horseshit excuse. What is the mechanism you complete douchebags? You have nothing. How about I believe … Continue reading Watch “M7.9 DISASTER IN NEPAL | S0 News April 25, 2015” on YouTube
This post is just to record some observations related to an ongoing conversation over at the Talkshop between Bob Weber and Ren. In case you are unaware there is a strong geomagnetic storm in progress. Auroras will be seen at lower latitudes - if the clouds part! I'll start with a quote from Dr. Tony … Continue reading Observing the ‘Strongest Geomagnetic Storm’ of Solar Cycle 24
A very interesting report by the BBC which shows why Total Solar Irradiation (TSI), has always been a red herring. "If you've got more thunderclouds [from climate change], you get more lighting but I still think the triggering of that lightning could be dependant upon the Sun and its magnetic field." Piers Corbyn of WeatherAction … Continue reading BBC – Sun’s magnetic field boosts lightning strikes across the UK
This video is a few months old but still well worth spending half an hour of your Sunday on. http://youtube.com/watch?v=y8EE0p9kx5o
Over at the Talkshop, Tim Channon has had a look at the Met Office's recent outlooks ahead of ex hurricaine Gonzales which sadly killed two in London*, recording gusts of 108mph in the Cairngorms, 88mph in Oban and 60-70mph in many parts. It caused wide disruption but nothing like the storms of last October and … Continue reading Predicting Gonzalo’s Path
Potential Correlation Between +M8 Earthquakes and Solar Polar Fields (August 3, 2014 – Columbus, OH) KAHB LLC announces the discovery of a potential method for predicting the largest (+M8) earthquakes, using polar magnetic fields of the sun. Using more than 35 years of data from the Wilcox Solar Observatory at Stanford University and from the … Continue reading DOES THE SUN TRIGGER LARGE EARTHQUAKES?
Nice observations, not so sure about the theory. http://youtube.com/watch?v=Hg5tla7s-ys

They found that petunias became slightly more positively charged after a bee visited them, according to ScientificAmerican. That revised electrical charge acts as a kind of "No Vacancy" sign to other bees, which learn to trust the signals that the flowers emit. "This … Continue reading Bees, Flowers and Electric Charge
Note: Warning periods are given with an advisory of +/- 1 day. The above forecast was produced four weeks ago. Earthquakes sourced here. The coronal hole has just passed a central position. Density increased seen by the upwards bump in the orange line below. Notice the red negative connection between sun and earth.

LIGHTNING strikes damaged three Oxfordshire houses this morning, the fire service has said.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MC5grec3u4s Ball lightning has been reported to appear during thunderstorms as a glow, ranging from the size of a golf ball to several metres across. There are a number of reports of such glows injuring or even killing people and setting buildings alight. In a letter to the Daily Mail in 1936, for instance, a … Continue reading Ball Lightning Captured by Spectrograph
