Solar Storm Forecasts Improve as Sun’s Fury Increases
Image: Solar Dynamics Observatory captured the flare, shown here in red/orange as that is the color typically used to show light in the 304 Angstrom wavelength. The flare began at 10:38 PM ET on Jan. 22, peaked at 10:59 PM and ended at 11:34 PM. Credit: NASA/SDO/AIA
If this week’s raging solar storm was any indication, the sun is ramping up its activity — and scientists will be ready for it. By meticulously studying our planet’s star, they are able to predict these potentially dangerous space weather events better than ever before.
A huge solar flare erupted Jan. 23, triggering the strongest radiation storm in nearly a decade. A wave of charged particles, called a coronal mass ejection (CME), bombarded Earth yesterday (Jan. 24). The bombardment is over now, but some minor disruptions to spacecraft and power grids were reported.
Scientists’ forecast for the arrival of the disruptive wave was off by only 13 minutes, far more accurate than in the past. And with much of the world’s networks interconnected and populations increasingly reliant on technology, the ability to predict and track potentially harmful space weather events will become ever more crucial.
Solar flares and CMEs are expected to increase in frequency as the sun emerges from the dormant phase of its 11-year activity cycle.

Over the holidays, I launched a website for my photos. I finally made the decision to do away with Flickr. The service has long been obsolete for me for a number of reasons, but the most important was presentation.
This new blog utilizes the Hi Res Theme created by the incredibly talented duo, Justin Ouellette and Noah Kalina. There is no question that the presentation of my photos in this theme is way better than what any photo website has ever had to offer. Combine that with Tumblr, and you have what I believe to be the best solution for sharing the photos you care about.
