A Large Solar Storm Will Hit Earth On July 31 Or August 1 At The Same Time That The “Black Supermoon” Happens

An absolutely massive hole has formed in the upper atmosphere of the Sun, and our planet will align with that hole later this week. Once the alignment happens, Earth will be bombarded by a “solar storm”, and nobody is quite sure yet how bad it will be. If the storm is relatively minor, we could just experience a few disruptions to satellite communications and see some pretty lights in the sky. But if the storm is really severe, our electrical grid could be fried and we could experience widespread power outages. According to the Express, “the solar storm will hit Earth on July 31 or August 1″…

Earth’s orbit around the Sun will soon align with a coronal hole – a hole in the Sun’s upper atmosphere – and solar particles will subsequently bombard the planet after they have made their way through space. Experts predict that the solar storm will hit Earth on July 31 or August 1. People in the northern hemisphere are likely to be treated to northern lights – or aurora borealis – as the solar winds bombard the upper reaches of the planet.

Of course North America is in the northern hemisphere, and so we could be in for a direct hit.

Since our satellites are outside our atmosphere, they are the most vulnerable during a solar storm. If some of our satellites get fried, that could affect GPS navigation, cell phone communication, and satellite television services

For the most part, the Earth’s magnetic field protects humans from the barrage of radiation, but solar storms can affect satellite-based technology.

Solar winds can heat the Earth’s outer atmosphere, causing it to expand.

This can affect satellites in orbit, potentially leading to a lack of GPS navigation, mobile phone signal and satellite TV such as Sky.

But if the storm is powerful enough, electronic devices all over the country could be damaged and our power grid could potentially be disabled. According to astrophysicist Scott McIntosh, a really bad solar storm could potentially even cause some of our major cities to be without power for months

McIntosh winces at the thought of what a massive storm might do: “Could you imagine DC or New York City being without power for six months, or eight months a year because of a solar event that they didn’t forecast well?”

So let us hope that this solar storm turns out to be relatively minor, because the potential for a catastrophic event is certainly there.

And our planet has definitely experienced very serious solar storms in recent history. For example, just check out what happened in August 1972

On August 4, an aurora shone so luminously that shadows were cast was seen from the southern coast of the United Kingdom[1] and shortly later as far south as Bilbao, Spain at magnetic latitude 46°.[38] Extending to August 5, intense geomagnetic storming continued with bright red (a relatively rare color associated with extreme events) and fast-moving aurora visible at midday from dark regions of the Southern Hemisphere.[39]

Radio frequency (RF) effects were rapid and intense. Blackouts commenced nearly instantaneously on the sunlit side of Earth on HF and other vulnerable bands. A nighttime mid-latitude E layer developed.[40]

Geomagnetically induced currents (GICs) were generated and produced significant electrical grid disturbances throughout Canada and across much of eastern and central United States, with strong anomalies reported as far south as Maryland and Ohio, moderate anomalies in Tennessee, and weak anomalies in Alabama and north Texas. The voltage collapse of 64% on the North Dakota to Manitoba interconnection would have been sufficient to cause a system breakup if occurring during high export conditions on the line, which would have precipitated a large power outage.

If such an event happens this time, there will almost certainly be significant power outages.

In 1859, a much more serious solar storm hit our planet, and it fried telegraph systems all across North America

On September 1–2, 1859, one of the largest recorded geomagnetic storms (as recorded by ground-based magnetometers) occurred. Auroras were seen around the world, those in the northern hemisphere as far south as the Caribbean; those over the Rocky Mountains in the U.S. were so bright that the glow woke gold miners, who began preparing breakfast because they thought it was morning.[6] People in the northeastern United States could read a newspaper by the aurora’s light.[11] The aurora was visible from the poles to the low latitude area[12], such as south-central Mexico[13], Queensland, Cuba, Hawaii,[14] southern Japan and China,[15] and even at lower latitudes very close to the equator, such as in Colombia.[16] Estimates of the storm strength range from −800 nT to −1750 nT.[17]

Telegraph systems all over Europe and North America failed, in some cases giving telegraph operators electric shocks.[18] Telegraph pylons threw sparks.[19] Some telegraph operators could continue to send and receive messages despite having disconnected their power supplies.[20]

At that time, we hardly possessed any technology that was capable of being affected by a solar storm.

If a similar event happens this week, the damage will be absolutely cataclysmic.

As I was researching this article, I also discovered that this solar storm will hit us at the time of the “Black Supermoon”

According to Farmer’s Almanac, some people call the second moon in a single month a Black Moon—this is the definition that’s used most often, and the one that applies to the full moon happening on July 31st. The term has also been used where no new moon occurs in a month, which only happens every 5 to 10 years in the month of February.

This particular moon on July 31st is called a Black Supermoon because it will be near its closest point to Earth.

I don’t know if the fact that these two events are happening so close to one another has any significance, but I did find it to be interesting.

We live in very unusual times, and our world is getting stranger every day. Global events are beginning to accelerate, and many of us feel like all sorts of craziness could start breaking loose at any moment.

Scientists tell us that it is just a matter of time before another solar storm of the magnitude that North America experienced in 1859 hits our planet again.

At this point we are completely and totally unprepared for such a storm, and so let us hope that the solar storm that will hit us this week is not of that variety.

Within The Next 7 Days A Large Solar Storm Will Hit Earth And Comet 21P Will Make The Closest Approach In 72 Years

This week, some unusual things will be happening up in the heavens. According to NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, it is being projected that a large solar storm will hit our planet on September 7th. Three days later, Comet 21P is going to make the closest approach to Earth that we have seen in 72 years. And all of this is happening during the same week as the important prophetic Biblical festival known as the Feast of Trumpets. Some are speculating that these “signs in the heavens” could be intended to communicate something to us. But is anyone out there paying attention?

This upcoming solar storm has kind of taken scientists by surprise. It was only discovered on September 3rd, and it is expected to hit our planet on September 7th

A CORONAL hole which has opened up on the surface of the Sun is facing directly towards Earth and experts are now expecting solar storms to head our way.

The hole was spotted by satellites from US space agency ANSA on September 3, and experts warn it will blast the storms towards our planet.

The solar storm is expected to hit on September 7, according to data from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory.

At this point, we really do not know how strong this solar storm will be.

A relatively minor solar storm won’t be catastrophic, but it could still greatly disrupt satellite communication

For the most part, the Earth’s magnetic field protects humans from the barrage of radiation, but solar storms can affect satellite-based technology.

Solar winds, which are a stream of particles from the sun, can heat the Earth’s outer atmosphere, causing it to expand.

This can affect satellites in orbit, potentially leading to a lack of GPS navigation, mobile phone signal and satellite TV such as Sky.

On the other hand, a major solar storm could produce an electromagnetic burst that could disable computers and electronic devices all over the world.

In other words, we would suddenly be facing the breakdown of society literally overnight. For much more on the potential for a catastrophic EMP scenario, please see my previous article entitled “The EMP Threat: All It Would Take Is A Couple Of Explosions To Send America Back To The 1800s”.

Three days after the solar storm, Comet 21P will come the closest to our planet that it has been in 72 years. The following comes from Newsweek

On September 10, the Comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner will make its closest approach to the Sun and Earth in 72 years as it journeys into the inner Solar System.

Currently travelling through space at speeds of more than 51,000 miles per hour, the object will be around 36 million miles away at its closest point to our planet. This may seem like a huge distance but in space terms it is relatively paltry and near enough that it will be visible from Earth.

Fortunately it does not appear that this comet poses any danger, but it will definitely get a lot of attention. It was originally discovered in 1900, and it circles past our planet every 6.6 years

Comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner was discovered on December 20, 1900 by French astronomer Michel Giacobini, according to Slooh. It orbits the Sun—and passes the Earth—roughly every 6.6 years. Interestingly, the comet is the parent body of the Draconids meteor shower which peaks in early October.

This time around, the appearance of Comet 21P happens to coincide with the Feast of Trumpets.

The Feast of Trumpets begins on the evening of September 9th, and it concludes on the evening of September 10th.

Is it significant that both events are happening on the same day? Author Ron Allen seems to think so

A small comet, 21-P/Giancobini-Zinner, will make its closest approach to Earth during the week of the Feast of Trumpets.

The Hebrew Feast of Trumpets occurs on the first day of the seventh month of the religious year. It is also the first day of the Hebrew secular year and is also known as Rosh Hashanah, meaning “the head of the year”. For the Christians, the feast of trumpets is one of the seven feasts of Israel, with the three spring feasts showing Christ’s coming, the Feast of Pentecost showing the coming of the Church, and the three fall feasts showing Christ’s Second Coming. The Feast of Trumpets is a prophetic representation of the trumpet call of God and the Second Coming of Christ (1 Cor. 15:52 and 1 Thess. 4:16).

Without a doubt, the Feast of Trumpets is a highly prophetic holiday. For a very detailed analysis of this, please see my book entitled The Rapture Verdict. Someday the Lord Jesus Christ will return for His people at “the last trumpet”, and every year this festival gives us a prophetic picture of that future event.

And let us not forget that there have been unexplained trumpet sounds coming from the sky all over the world in recent days.

Our world is becoming increasingly strange with each passing day, and it should be a very interesting week.

How A Massive Solar Storm Could Wreck The Global Economy

Sure, the sun gives us all the energy and warmth that we need to exist, but that doesn’t mean it can’t also be a total jerk. Case in point: A powerful release of particles and plasma known as a coronal mass ejection could wreak unimaginable havoc if it hits the planet, frying the electrical grid and leaving entire regions stuck in an indefinite blackout. And depending on just where such a solar storm hit, a new study estimates it could cost nearly $50 billion in a single day.

Solar storms of that magnitude are rare, but hardly unheard of. A powerful storm known as the Carrington event would have cost the United States alone perhaps more than two trillion dollars if it had happened today instead of in 1859. The sun did even undergo just such a powerful coronal mass ejection in 2012, but it thankfully missed the Earth. Though it’s not the sort of thing likely to happen tomorrow, the odds are that it’s a matter of when, not if a serious solar storm hits our planet and knocking out our energy infrastructure, possibly doing permanent damage to transformers that aren’t easily replaced.

Just Weeks After Obama’s Executive Order On Catastrophic Space Weather Events, A Massive Solar Storm Is Set To Hit Earth On Election Day

solar-storm-public-domain

This has already been the craziest election in the history of the country, with the most overt corruption and fraud the American people have likely ever seen.

Now, on top of everything else that’s scheduled to go down tomorrow, it is being projected that a powerful coronal mass ejection (CME) is set to hit Earth tomorrow, and not just hit earth but a direct hit is in our forecast.

According to Space Weather Live, “A coronal mass ejection (or CME) is a giant cloud of solar plasma drenched with magnetic field lines that are blown away from the Sun during strong, long-duration solar flares and filament eruptions.”

What this means is the very real potential for strong geomagnetic storms here on Earth. Potential storms from CMEs like this have been known to cause everything from lost satellite control to radio and television interference to power grid disruption and failure.

Solar Storm 2014: A New Carrington Event Could Fry Electronics Like An EMP From A Nuclear Bomb

The United States Of America At Night

Scientists are rightfully worried that our current solar cycle might trigger an electronics collapse of anything not electromagnetically shielded. The weakest link is the electric power grid — which we all depend on nowadays — and some of the aging satellite systems that do not have military grade hardware protection. Can you imagine all electronics either fizzling out or bursting into flame? The damage would be in the trillions, and there would be mass starvation since our modern style of living requires refrigeration and transportation in order to function.

The idea of a “black swan” type event isn’t theoretical since a solar storm knocked out a power grid in Quebec in 1989, and it’s claimed that a devastating CME event has a 12 percent chance of happening by 2024. Earth already dodged the bullet once in recent times. Back in July of 2012, two coronal mass ejections separated by 10 to 15 minutes was enough of a solar superstorm to be a Carrington Event, but fortunately our planet barely missed it.

According to Peter Vincent Pry, who advises Congress on homeland security issues, a large enough geomagnetic solar storm could produce effects similar to an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) generated by a nuclear weapon that “could collapse power grids everywhere on the planet and destroy EHV (extra high voltage) transformers and other electronic systems that would require years to repair or replace.” While the danger posed by a G5 solar storm gets mentioned occasionally at Congressional hearings, there really hasn’t been any major action.
