Amateur Astronomers Zero-in On Downed Satellite; Serious Escalation In Solar Activity

by Mitch Battros - Earth Changes

NASA's decommissioned Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) fell back to Earth between 11:23 p.m. EDT Friday, Sept. 23 and 1:09 a.m. Sept. 24, 20 years and nine days after its launch on a 14-year mission that produced some of the first long-term records of chemicals in the atmosphere.

Amateur astronomers associated with the American Meteor Society believe their cross reference to NASA's official calculation as stated above indicate debris may have fallen near Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Rob Matson, a member of the American Meteor Societysaid in his correspondence with members: "I think we've got a good match -- looks like reentry would have occurred around 21:20 PDT (24 Sep 04:20 UT) south of Calgary, Alberta... If true, pieces should be recoverable."

The precise re-entry time and location of debris impactshave not been determined by NASA. During the re-entry period, the satellite passed from the east coast of Africa over the Indian Ocean, then the Pacific Ocean, then across northern Canada, then across the northern Atlantic Ocean, to a point over West Africa. The vast majority of the orbital transit was over water, with some flight over northern Canada and West Africa.


And here is a bit of humor on the finding of the satellite:Video: 

Serious Escalation of Solar Activity  
Now In Effect

Solar activity remains very high. After an X-class flare peaking at 9:40 hours yesterday morning, as much as eleven (11) M-class flares were observed. The main source region was sunspot region 1302 with an M7.1 (peak time 13:17 UT yesterday), M3.1 (17:25 UT), M2.8 (18:15 UT), M3.0 (19:21 UT), M5.8 (20:36 UT), M4.4 (02:31 UT today), M7.4 (04:50 UT) and M3.1 (08:49 UT).

The other contributing sunspot regions were 1295 with an M1.8 flare peaking at 16:59 UT yesterday and region 1303 with an M1.0 flare around midnight peak time 23:57 UT and an M1.5 flare peaking at 09:34 UT today. With the GOES X-ray flux background at high C-level, we can certainly expect more M-flares, with a reasonable possibility for another X-class event.

Several CME's (coronal mass ejection) were observedassociated to the flares mentioned above. The M7.1 event yesterday was accompanied by a partial halo CME observed in SOHO/LASCO starting from 12:48 hours. Its speed was estimated to be around 1,050 km/s (652.43 miles/s) based on the STEREO coronograph data.


Other CME's observed by STEREO A and B and SOHO/LASCO can be associated with the M3.0, M5.8 and M1.0 flares yesterday as well as with the M4.4, C7.9, M7.4 and M3.1 class flares today - originating from sunspot region 1302.

PROBA2/SWAP and SDO/AIA data show a clear EUV wave associated with the M7 flare today. As none of the source regions of these CME's are in the center of the solar disk, we only expect possible glancing blows from these events.

The GOES proton flux level remains elevated (>10MeV) and is further increased by the current solar activity. A shock is observed in the solar wind parameters measured by ACE around 11 UT this morning, possibly related to the CME associated with the X-class flare on September 22.

The total magnetic field strength jumped
 to 10 nT, while the solar wind speed increased to 380 km/s (236 miles/s). Current geomagnetic conditions are quiet. We expect them to increase to unsettled to active starting late this evening as a result of al the CME's in the past hours.     
Mitch Battros Research of the Sun - Earth Connection and 2012

Mitch Battros presents fascinating, and sometimes shocking, research from the world's top scientists. After years of dialogue with these experts, Mitch has been accepted into the guarded halls of NASA, NOAA, ESA, Royal Observatory, the US Naval Observatory and other highly esteemed scientific bodies. In addition to the latest research on the Sun's influence on our "weather".

Mitch also presents ground-breaking evidence of how the Sun and other celestial orbs produce 'charged particles' and their impact on humanity.

Just as the Sun's solar activity affects the Earth's magnetic field which has a dramatic affect on Earth's "weather" i.e. earthquakes, floods, volcanoes, hurricanes; so does this wave of electrical currents affect the human body's magnetic field. Mitch also reveals a little-known development from modern medicine known as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). TMS provides empirical evidence of how magnetic fields can influence human emotions.  

Solar Cycle 24 has begun - and it has been predicted by NASA, NOAA and ESA to be up to 50% stronger than its 'record breaking' predecessor Cycle 23 which produced the largest solar flare ever recorded. The Sun will reach its 'apex' (maximum) in late 2011 into 2012.

"I believe it will be the magnetic influence produced by the Sun which will usher in what is described by our ancient ancestors as "the transition" bringing us to a new state-of-being". (Mitch Battros)
