How a solar storm two years ago nearly caused a catastrophe on Earth

Solar Storms

On July 23, 2012, the sun unleashed two massive clouds of plasma that barely missed a catastrophic encounter with the Earth’s atmosphere.  These plasma clouds, known as coronal mass ejections (CMEs), comprised a solar storm thought to be the most powerful in at least 150 years.

“If it had hit, we would still be picking up the pieces,” physicist Daniel Baker of the University of Colorado tells NASA.

Fortunately, the blast site of the CMEs was not directed at Earth.  Had this event occurred a week earlier when the point of eruption was Earth-facing, a potentially disastrous outcome would have unfolded.

“I have come away from our recent studies more convinced than ever that Earth and its inhabitants were incredibly fortunate that the 2012 eruption happened when it did,” Baker tells NASA.  “If the eruption had occurred only one week earlier, Earth would have been in the line of fire.”

  1. Something really weird is going on, that is for certain. The question is what is causing all these different things to happen?
    Some people think the dark star, or something like it might be happening. Only the governments of the world are afraid to let anyone know. This would be a sub-brown dwarf star orbiting the Sun in a huge comet like orbit that approaches the Solar System every 3600 years plus or minus a couple of hundred years. It could be anywhere from Jupiter sized to ten or even twenty times the size of Jupiter. According to the educated guesses, it comes up from the Deep Southern Hemisphere at about a 50 degree angle off the orbits of most planets. Only if it came around the time of Jesus Christ’s birth, then it should be about 2 light years out right now.
    And that is a big IF. Something attracted the astrologers of Jesus Christ’s time. A star unknown in the sky acting like a planet moving across the constellations?
    The largest infra-red survey of the skies just found no evidence of such a body. Are they looking in the wrong places? Don’t know.
    Something is disrupting the Sun. Our own planet is showing signs of a rather big change happening.
    My guess is that if something big is happening, the rats are preparing to leave the ship. That would be those wealthy people that run the entire show on this planet including a particular Devil we have all read about in the Bible.
    It is said in legends that when the world was flooded, the “gods” all got in their ships and waited it out in the heavens. When it was over with, they came back.
    I have no doubt that there are beings out there in the universe a little more advanced on the food chain than we are. Whether they are amongst us, I do not know.
    But that near miss would have shook me up if I were one of them.
