Very Active Region Coming Our Way

A new, very active region is approaching over the left side of the sun. It has already popped off 12 flares (C and M class) in 2 days (Oct. 8-10). The region may be a harbinger of geo-effective activity to come. Credit: NASA/SDO

We are approaching the solar maximum period now, which is roughly an 11 year cycle. We need to hope it doesn't get much worse. Instead of our infrastructures becoming more resilient, with each solar peak we seem to be in a more fragile state. Power grids and communications, including GPS systems are particularly vulnerable to powerful storms.

It would be nice if it were just fear-mongering, but it's not and there is a very real possibility of widespread problems if we get a big one.

The Sun brings life to our planet...except when it burps.
