Epic Geomagnetic Storm Erupts

October 25, 2011 Comments off

Psalm 68:2 2 As smoke is blown away, so You blow [them] away. As wax melts before the fire, so the wicked are destroyed before God.

“as wax melts before the fire” – Yahweh’s SCORCH PROPHECY remains in effect through the end time.

Judgment is upon all nations of the earth and Yahweh uses Her arsenal of weapons found in nature, which includes the sun, to bring wrath upon the wicked. “so the wicked are destroyed before God.”

Right this moment, there’s an epic magnetic battle raging above our heads.

On Monday, at around 2 p.m. ET, a coronal mass ejection (CME) slammed into the Earth’s magnetosphere. According to NASA’s Space Weather Laboratory, the conditions were just right for the CME’s magnetic field to compress the Earth’s magnetosphere so much that, for a short time (between 3:06 p.m and 3:11 p.m. ET), energetic solar wind particles penetrated as deep as geosynchronous orbit — home to hundreds of communication satellites.

Although the interactions between solar plasma and Earth’s magnetic field are often invisible, tonight is an exception. Vast aurorae are rippling through the atmosphere at very low latitudes.

At time of writing, the US was being given a dazzling show as Spaceweather.com reports:

Northern Lights have spilled across the Canadian border into the contiguous USA. Sighting reports have come from as far south as Arkansas, Wisconsin, Michigan, Tennessee, Missouri, Illinois, Nebraska, Kentucky, Indiana, Oklahoma, Kansas, Maryland, New York, Ohio and central California.

Yes, central California! To see some of the auroral displays, the Universe Today has a few reader’s photos featured. My personal favorite is an earlier photograph taken in Norway. – DiscoveryNews

They’re back and scientists aren’t exactly sure why: Red night aurora burst over U.S. skies

A coronal mass ejection (CME) hit Earth on Oct. 24th at approximately 1800 UT (2:00 pm EDT). The impact strongly compressed Earth’s magnetic field, directly exposing geosynchronous satellites to solar wind plasma, and sparked an intense geomagnetic storm. As night fell over North America, auroras spilled across the Canadian border into the contiguous United States. Indeed, the display spread all the way down to Arkansas. “When I saw the alert, I ran outside and immediately saw red auroras,” reports Brian Emfinger from the city of Ozark. “Within a few minutes the auroras went crazy! Unbelievable!” Auroras were seen or photographed in more than half of all US states including Alabama, Wisconsin, New Mexico, Tennessee, Missouri, Illinois, Nebraska, Kentucky, North Carolina, Indiana, Oklahoma, Kansas, Iowa, Maryland, New York, Montana, Ohio, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Washington, Minnesota, Maine, Michigan, Oregon, Arkansas and California. Many observers, especially in the deep south, commented on the pure red color of the lights they saw. These rare all-red auroras sometimes appear during intense geomagnetic storms. They occur some 300 to 500 km above Earth’s surface and are not yet fully understood. The storm is subsiding now. Nevertheless, high-latitude sky watchers should remain alert for auroras as Earth’s magnetic field continues to reverberate from the CME impact. –Space Weather

Magnetic pole shift means new Hillsboro runway name

September 20, 2011 Comments off

The slowly drifting location of Earth’s magnetic north pole means the Hillsboro Airport’s main runway underwent a name change early this week — from 12/30 to 13/31.

The new numbers were painted at one end of the runway early this week as part of general maintenance, said a spokeswoman for the Port of Portland, which owns and operates the airport.

Pilots and clients of the airport were mailed notices to be on the lookout for the runway work, but the airport was never shut down, as was rumored, said spokeswoman Kama Simonds.

Runways are designated according to the points on a compass, and the changing location of true magnetic north meant the runway sometimes is renamed.

Experts say magnetic north is slipping slowly from above the Arctic Ocean in a north-northwestern direction toward Siberia, at about 34.2 miles per year. When the magnetic points were recalibrated, Hillsboro, like some other airports, had to renumber its main runway. – Oregon Love

Daniel 2:21 “He changes the times and seasons; He removes kings and establishes kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.”

Matthew 24:22 “Unless those days were limited, no one would survive. But those days will be limited because of the elect.”

Dictionary: “limited >adjective 1 restricted in size, amount, or extent. 2 not great in ability. 3 (of a monarchy or government) exercised under limitations of power prescribed by a constitution. 4 (Limited) Brit. denoting a limited company.”

The AMOUNT of days are cut short.

If Yahweh did not cut the time short, NO ONE WOULD SURVIVE. Why so? Mankind is a wild card that would destroy itself with no help from anyone. Even Satan, if left alone, could not save mankind from its own self. Mankind’s disposition is destruction. Without Yahweh’s guidance, they would eventually kill themselves. But even so, only a remnant will be harvested from this crop of evil. The rest are doomed to eternal death by the hand of Yahweh.

The sun shows a bit of flare: Stunning image shows explosion so powerful it may damage electrical grids on Earth

The largest solar flare in four years may cause spectacular Northern Lights displays over Britain

If your satnav suddenly sends you the wrong way, don’t blame your gadget’s irritating electronic voice, blame the Sun.

Our star has unleashed its most powerful explosion in four years – and as it slams into the Earth’s atmosphere it could play havoc with all sorts of electronics.

The X-class flare, one of three solar flares emitted this week, was accompanied by a huge cloud of charged gas.

As this hits Earth’s magnetic field in the coming hours, experts warn it could disrupt power grids, satnavs and mobile phone networks – as well as producing spectacular displays of solar lights.

The U.S. National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration said: ‘Ground-to-air, ship-to-shore, shortwave broadcast and amateur radio are vulnerable to disruption during geomagnetic storms.
