Spacecraft Venus Express is watching the storm on Venus

At the beginVenusning of 2015 thanks to the European spacecraft Venus Express the researchers got new pictures and videos of the storm raging on Venus – the second planet from our sun.

This storm was raging at the South Pole incandescent solid planet. And he was captured by an infrared spectrometer spectral Infrared Thermal Imaging Spectrometer.

Such storms occur periodically on Venus at an altitude of about 70 kilometers above the planet’s surface. They may reach speeds of 400 km / h. Read the rest of this entry »

Why not occurred magnetic storm from the flare of class X?

 

magnetic earthAs you know on January 7 Sun erupted higher power class X1.2. it served as a source of active group of sunspots in 1944, is located at the time the exact opposite of our planet. Scientists, astronomers, NASA and NOAA have confirmed the direction of ejection and gave forecast for powerful geomagnetic storm, which was to begin on January 9.
The information was confirmed by scientists. All media announced the impending geomagnetic storm, but it’s January 9, and geomagnetic storm has not begun. I tracked all the monitors, but apart from the radiation storm, which reached the level of strong, no special perturbations of Earth’s magnetosphere followed. Read the rest of this entry »

The Earth has a strong magnetic storm is coming

magnetic stormSolar Observatory SDO and SOHO recorded on the Sun powerful coronal mass ejection – a giant cloud of plasma, which is heading towards the Earth and tomorrow may trigger geomagnetic disturbances on the planet, according to NASA

Coronal mass ejection on the Sun was recorded on Tuesday in 12.24 MSK.  The speed of the plasma cloud is about 917 kilometers per second – this is the usual rate for such emissions. Read the rest of this entry »

Explosions in the Sun

Sun explosionsSun – the only star of the solar system, the yellow dwarf, our daylight. It was around the turn other objects, the planets and their moons, asteroids, meteorites, comets and cosmic dust. And what happens to our luminary has an impact on the entire solar system.

 The usual frantic shining

It seemed that there were no signs of the next cataclysm for yellow dwarf in one of the arms of the Milky Way. For several billion years in its core thermonuclear fire raged. Every second, stood out a monstrous energy, equal to the number of explosions difficult Computing  the most powerful thermonuclear bombs. The tremendous heat of the nuclear furnaces poured evenly dazzling radiance, supporting life on the third planet. It seemed that it always will be, and in front, especially against the background of short sparks of lives forever… Read the rest of this entry »

The sun coincided with a large magnetic storm on Earth

Sun stormA large magnetic storm began on Earth almost simultaneously with a full solar eclipse, but these events are almost certainly not related, according to a statement on the Sun laboratory X-ray astronomy of the Lebedev Physical Institute (LPI).

Maximum phase of a total eclipse of the sun, which is November 14 could be observed just to the north of Australia, has fallen to 02.00 MSK medium, and at the same time on Earth was recorded beginning sufficiently large magnetic storm. Storm continued for about 12 hours, according to 14.00 MSK, the index of geomagnetic disturbances Kp, measured by a network of ground magnetic stations has dropped from 6 to 5, which indicates some weakening of the storm.

Earth is a magnetic storm

Earth stormMagnetic Storm – is a consequence of solar activity. In addition to the light (photons), the Sun emits a generous set of completely weighty charged particles – protons, helium nuclei, and electrons.

They form the so-called solar wind. Charged particles, managed to fly to the vicinity of Earth, it interacts with the magnetic field.

Our planet – a magnet, the south pole is located near the geographic north. The closer to the magnetic pole, the greater the intensity of the geomagnetic field – near the Arctic Circle is one and a half times more than in Moscow.

15,000 Washington residents remained without electricity because of the storm!

Around 15,000 people were left without electricity in the U.S. capital, Washington DC and the surrounding area after the storm, said the power company Pepco.

In the second half of the day Tuesday in the capital region has been heavy rains, accompanied by gusty winds. Storm warning, announced a few hours earlier, continues to operate until the end of the day. Read the rest of this entry »

Maya- a solar storm and the end of the world

 the worldCivilization of Maya were great scholars in the field of celestial phenomena, the sun, moon and other celestial bodies are seen through the eyes. But what tools they used? How are they formulated their theories? They certainly did not have sophisticated technical tools that we use today to study the Sun and planets. It remains only that they relied on the cyclical nature of celestial phenomena.

In the famous Mayan calendar was probably not quite right before the end of the world and future events and the expected date of the end of the world changed many times, as the event approached.
