Solar Flare Shockwave Aimed At Earth

Luke 21:25,26 “There will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth dismay among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.

NASA reported a series of three X-class solar flares over the last two days that have produced a coronal mass ejection that will strike Earth on Friday.

The CME is part of two X-class flares that struck Tuesday, a X 2.2 and X 1.5.  Both created a coronal ejection but the second moved fast enough to join the first and project it toward Earth.   The Wednesday flare, an X 1.0, caused disruption to radio signals for a brief time but did not cause a CME.

Officials with the Space Weather Prediction Center say that CME will strike Earth sometime Friday.  The strike is believed to be a “glancing blow” that will cause geomagnetic storms at the planet’s poles.

The CME will disrupt GPS signals and satellite communications.  The disruption will be worse on the daylight side of the planet during the solar strike.

NASA says the sun is now officially at the “solar maximum” of its 11-year cycle.  However, the scientists say this cycle’s solar max is significantly weaker than previous cycles.

  1. This be only the beginning. We need to be prepared for stronger solar storms and stronger cme’s.
    I feel and believe we are at the beginning of a much larger problem.
    When we are more dependent on technogy to help us and less on God’s help, who is our god and savior then?
