Has anybody heard about the Solar Storm thats bombarding Earth with radiation? Has it affected you?
"Canada and parts of the northern United States may be in for a spectacular light show courtesy of the the sun's bombardment of Earth with radiation from the biggest solar storm in more than eight years."
Yes, I have heard of it. I did a hub on it also, because I wanted to learn more, and it is just fascinating to me. Luckily, I don't think it can do any damage to us, but it can affect power grids and other things. Ironically, I was joking today with my family how of all the days lately, today was extra bright, and sitting by the window at one point it got very warm! I was surprised we didn't hear more about it sooner, but it was great to know it when we did at least.
Also I heard it can affect moods and depress some people. Which I though was very interesting because since this past weekend I have felt unbelievably grumpy and depressed. I haven't felt this bad in YEARS!..But it was nice to read something that possibly had a link to it.
I also head of it, but it didn't affect me in any way. no change here.
It's effecting cell phones, satellite service, any signal like that, and it's supposed to be worse next year around this time.
The sun is always bombarding the Earth with radiation - 1.36 kilowatts per square meter every second on the sun-facinf side of the planet. These coronal mass ejections are just a small puff of charged particles - the radiation from the CME hit us 8.5 minutes after the storm happened.
I don't know of any studies linking high-energy charged particles in the stratosphere to mood. Though I'd certainly be bummed to find out that the aurora was visible from my latitude last night and I missed it.
We are only getting slight hits from this storm. The actual hit is going over the earth and going into the galaxy above us. The light shows are signs of us barely getting touched by these storms.

Got up this morning to this unbelievable racket that sounded like about 100 crows. It's twelve hours later and they are still at it. As near as I can tell, it isn't 100 after all, it's just a few, and they seem to be stationed in a tree in our yard (right next to the bedroom). I walked under it and...

Does anybody else think "naming" all these winter storms is annoying?The latest winter storm to hit the Northeast was called winter storm Ukko. The previous four have been named Triton, Saturn, Rocky and Q -- WHY? I have no idea. I don't know who started this trend or why they...

Anybody seen or heard from dohn? his last activity was 10 days ago. It's kind of unusual not to see him in HP for a long period of time, especially after he reached 1,000 fans / followers.
