Wednesday Memos

As the stats increase, where do you think people are going? It would seem 11:11 is the place. Obviously there is momentum building. I'm so glad I chose to have a class that day.

While in the energies of the New Moon in Scorpio - which is about new beginnings that 'might' come to fruition in 6 months from now - play with these energy and see what happens. We know that the program doesn't work the way it used to - the landscape of reality has changed - but fun is fun and this is Halloween. Make this a magic moon moment. Think ... "this is what I would like for 2012, or just bring the element of surprise."

Personally, if I had one wish it would definitely be teleportation as things down here move way too slowly. From above it is like looking at a program in slow motion as it is slowing down to zero point - magnetics decreasing - frequency increasing.

The story ... the journey ... all myth, math, metaphor and magic

CMEs, Planetary Magnetics and Auroras in Strange Places

Northern lights go way, way south
  MSNBC - October 25, 2011

A solar outburst sparked surprising displays of the northern lights as far south as Arkansas, Mississippi and North Carolina tonight, marking one of the farthest-reaching auroral shows in years. As word spread about the geomagnetic storm, photos streamed onto the Web from the usual places, such as Norway, Sweden and Iceland, but also from locales that are typically too far south to see the northern lights.

All-Sky Auroras
  National Geographic - October 26, 2011

The northern lights seem to create a big red spot amid a sky full of green auroras in a picture taken very early Tuesday from Marquette, Michigan. The sun has been ramping up its activity over the past year, heading toward the next maximum in its roughly 11-year cycle. Eruptions from the solar surface have been linked to coronal mass ejections (CME), huge clouds of particles that can come hurtling from the sun's upper atmosphere in any direction. Monday's auroral display was most likely caused by a CME on Saturday that was aimed at Earth. More frequent CMEs have some experts worried about the risks sun storms pose to satellites and the power grid-but often the particles' most noticeable effects on Earth are brilliant auroras.

A coronal mass ejection (CME) hit Earth on Oct. 24th at approximately 1800 UT (2:00 pm EDT). The impact strongly compressed Earth's magnetic field, directly exposing geosynchronous satellites to solar wind plasma, and sparked an intense geomagnetic storm. As night fell over North America, auroras spilled across the Canadian border into the contiguous United States. A US Department of Defense satellite photographed the crossing.

"This shows the auroras on Oct. 25th at 0140 GMT," says Paul McCrone of the Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Center in Monterey, California. He created the image using visual and infrared data from the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program's F18 polar orbiter. DMSP satellites carry low light cameras for night time monitoring of moonlit clouds, city lights and auroras. Some of the auroras recorded by the F18 on Oct. 25th were as bright as the city lights underneath.

This "big picture" from orbit makes sense of what happened next. The bright band swept south and, before the night was over, auroras were sighted in more than thirty US states: Alabama, Wisconsin, New Mexico, Tennessee, Missouri, Illinois, Nebraska, Kentucky, North Carolina, Indiana, Oklahoma, Kansas, Iowa, Maryland, New York, Montana, Ohio, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Washington, Virginia, Texas, Arizona, Minnesota, Maine, Michigan, Montana, Oregon, Arkansas and California.

Many observers, especially in the deep south, commented on the pure red color of the lights they saw. These rare all-red auroras sometimes appear at low latitudes during intense geomagnetic storms. They occur some 300 to 500 km above Earth's surface and are not yet fully understood. (See Photo Gallery)
