SOLAR ACTIVITY SURGES: A sunspot on the sun's eastern limb is crackling with powerful X-class solar flares. Just-numbered AR1748 announced itself during the early hours of May 13th with an X1.7-class eruption (0217 UT), quickly followed by an X2.8-class flare (1609 UT) and an X3.2-class flare (0117 UT on May 14). These are the strongest flares of the year so far, and they signal a significant increase in solar activity. NOAA forecasters estimate a 40% chance of more X-flares during the next 24 hours.

POSSIBLE CME IMPACT ON MAY 17: A coronal mass ejection (CME) hurled into space by the X1-flare of May 15th might deliver a glancing blow to Earth's magnetic field on May 17th. NOAA forecasters estimate a 40% chance of polar geomagnetic storms when the cloud arrives. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras tonight. Aurora alerts: textvoice.

M3-FLARE: Sunspot AR1748 unleashed an M3-class solar flare on May 17th at 0858 UT: image. Although this is not the strongest flare we've seen from AR1748, it could be the most geoeffective. The sunspot is facing Earth more directly than before, and the explosion might have hurled a CME toward our planet. Stay tuned for updates. Solar flare alerts: textvoice.

8.2 earthquake off the coast of Kamchatka a few hours ago...

http://www.cnn.com/2013/05/24/world/asia/russia-earthquake/index.html


A magnitude 8.2 earthquake struck the Russian Far East on Friday, the U.S. Geologicial Survey reported.
The epicenter for the extremely powerful quake was located in the Sea of Okhotsk, just to the west of the Kamchatka Peninsula, and about 600 kilometers (nearly 375 miles) underground.

i think this is the right place to put news about a giant piece of Antartic ice crumbling into the ocean...

Huge iceberg breaks away from the Pine Island glacier in the Antarctic
http://phys.org/news/2013-07-huge-iceberg-island-glacier-antarctic.html

On 8 July 2013 a huge area of the ice shelf broke away from the Pine Island glacier, the longest and fastest flowing glacier in the Antarctic, and is now floating in the Amundsen Sea in the form of a very large iceberg. Scientists of the Alfred Wegener Institute - Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research have been following this natural spectacle via the earth observation satellites TerraSAR-X from the German Space Agency (DLR) and have documented it in many individual images. The data is intended to help solve the physical puzzle of this "calving". 

Scientists from the American space agency NASA discovered the first crack in the glacier tongue on 14 October 2011 when flying over the area. At that time it was some 24 kilometres long and 50 metres wide. "As a result of these cracks, one giant iceberg broke away from the glacier tongue. It measures 720 square kilometres and is therefore almost as large as the city of Hamburg", reports Professor Dr Angelika Humbert, ice researcher at the Alfred Wegener Institute.i think this is the right place to put news about a giant piece of Antartic ice crumbling into the ocean...

in shocking news, fracking causes earthquakes.  lots of them.  pretty big ones.

Energy production causes big US earthquakes
 Fluids injected into wells lubricate faults and increase slippage.

Most of these quakes have been small, but some have exceeded magnitude 5.0. They include a magnitude-5.6 event that hit Oklahoma on 6 November 2011, damaging 14 homes and injuring two people, says William Ellsworth, a seismologist at the US Geological Survey in Menlo Park, California, and the author of one of the papers1.

He says that the annual number of earthquakes record at magnitude 3.0 or higher in the central and eastern United States has increased almost tenfold in the past decade — from an average of 21 per year between 1967 and 2000 to a maximum of 188 in 2011. A second study2, led by Nicholas van der Elst, a seismologist at Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in Palisades, New York, finds that at least half of the magnitude-4.5 or larger earthquakes that have struck the interior United States in the past decade have occurred near injection-well sites.

North Pole is now a Lake!

I don't know if this is normal just thought I would post it so you al could have a look.

Strange times indeed.
