    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The presidential seal has fallen off President Barack Obama's podium and clattered to the stage as Obama delivered a speech to a women's conference. The president was joking with the audience and getting some laughs when he realized what happened. "All of you know who I am," he quipped. Obama told the audience that somebody in the back was really nervous, referring to the staffer who hung the seal on the front of the lectern so precariously.

    DENVER - The sun is demanding everyone's attention, three weeks into perhaps the most dramatic and unexpected chain of eruptions ever observed venting from its seething, bubbling surface. There have been as many as 11 salvos since Oct. 19. And the fireworks could reach a new crescendo by Thanksgiving, the nation's busiest holiday for air travel, just one of the things that can be disrupted. "There's been nothing quite like this," said Bill Murtagh, a space weather forecaster for the National Oceanic and Space Administration in Boulder, Colo. "Another big blow is not what anyone needs." NASA scientists compare it...

    Professor Ramon Lopez, Art's first hour guest, confirmed that there are very large explosions taking place on the far side of the sun. Quite possibly these are coming from sunspot 10486. We do not know if that sunspot is now shrinking or is growing. From this side, all we are seeing are the full halos expanding out.

    Red Moon set to dive behind Earth By Dr David Whitehouse BBC News Online science editor The colour of the Moon can change dramatically A total lunar eclipse will be visible on Saturday from Europe, Africa, the Americas, and much of Asia - if the weather is kind and gives clear skies. The Moon regularly passes into the Earth's shadow and becomes dimmer. It happens about every six months or so. A lunar eclipse has no great importance astronomically but can be enjoyed by many people without special equipment. Skywatchers should train their eyes on the Moon from 2215...
  • Largest Solar Flare Ever Recorded (X30-X40) DOES have an Earth-Directed Component

    11/04/2003 6:04:19 PM PST · by John H K · 111 replies · 1,132+ views
    The X18+ solar flare has been associated with a high velocity FULL HALO coronal mass ejection. There IS an Earthward directed component. Estimated plane of sky velocity for this event is 2381 km/sec, although it is probable the true velocity is above 2400 km/sec because there is some evidence for acceleration of the CME. True x-ray intensity is unknown, but is probably near the X30 x-ray level (possibly between X30 and X40). VERY impressive event! Definitely one for the record books. We have no idea yet when this one might impact the Earth or how strong the impact might be....

  • Sun on Fire, Unleashes 3 More Major Flares

    The Sun cut loose with three severe flares in less than 24 hours through Monday morning, bringing to nine the number of major eruptions in less than two weeks. Scientists have never witnessed a string of activity like this. Colorful aurora are expected to grace the skies at high latitudes and possibly into lower portions of the United States and Europe over the next two or three nights. Satellites and power grids could once again be put at risk. Early Monday, Paal Brekke, deputy project manager of the SOHO spacecraft, was still digesting the significance of the three additional outbursts...

    Another remarkable solar flare has erupted from giant sunspot 486--an X8-class blast at 1725 UT on Nov. 2nd. Because the sunspot is nearing the sun's western limb, this explosion was not aimed squarely at Earth. Even so, a coronal mass ejection (CME) is heading our way. Auroras could appear on Nov. 3rd or 4th when the fast-moving cloud delivers a glancing blow to Earth's magnetic field. Visit for more information and images.

    A magnetic storm provided some breathtaking views in certain parts of western Pennsylvania Thursday night. Aurora borealis, commonly known as "Northern Lights," lit up the sky with a red glow. According to the DeNardo Weather team, auroras appear when Earth's magnetic field vibrates in response to a solar wind gust. People on the ground are protected from any danger by a magnetic bubble around Earth called the "magnetosphere." Visit for more information about auroras.

    'Perfect solar storm' sends massive eruption Earth's wayBY SPACEFLIGHT NOWPosted: October 28, 2003 The third most powerful solar flare ever recorded erupted from the Sun earlier today, and scientists say Earth could feel the effects with communications disruptions and loss of power. Image from SOHO today showing the eruption. Credit: NASA/ESA/SOHO  At about 6 a.m. EST (1100 GMT), satellites watched as the event occurred. The flare was significantly larger than several unleashed since last week.

    SEVERE SOLAR ACTIVITY: One of the most powerful solar flares in years, a remarkable X17-category explosion, erupted from sunspot 486 this morning at approximately 1110 UT. A strong solar radiation storm is in progress. The explosion hurled a coronal mass ejection almost directly toward Earth, which could trigger bright auroras when it arrives perhaps as early as tonight.

    SEVERE SOLAR ACTIVITY: One of the most powerful solar flares in years, a remarkable X14-category explosion, erupted from sunspot 486 this morning at approximately 1110 UT. An intensifying S2-class solar radiation storm is in progress. The explosion almost certainly hurled a coronal mass ejection toward Earth, which could trigger bright auroras when it arrives on Oct 29th or 30th. Stay tuned for details.
  • Big Solar Storm Will Hit Earth Friday

    Big solar storm will hit Earth Friday Oct 24th BOULDER, COLO. - A strong geomagnetic storm is expected to hit Earth on Friday. Scientists say it may knock out electrical grids and satellite communications. A "sunspot cluster" said to be 10 times the size of Earth could damage satellites and power grids, as well as cable TV, pager and cellular telephone service. Forecasters at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in Boulder, Colo., say it is one of the largest sunspot clusters in years. Larry Combs, a forecaster at the federal Space Environment Center in Boulder, says the sunspot cluster...
