The sun produced a very impressive Earth directed X-Class flare on September 10th, 2014.

The animated .gif image below shows the powerful solar event “up close” (close in astronomical terms that is to say).

This video seen below is an accurate forecast.

The solar forecaster (Tamitha Skov) sums up what we can expect from the incoming Earth directed Solar blast resulting from yesterdays (9/10/2014) X-class flare.

As for what to expect from this Earth facing flare….. radio blackout issues, GPS issues, possible limited electrical grid failure, and also the threat of larger Earthquakes.

I recommend subscribing to the premier solar forecasting channel for future updates:


The incoming blast will arrive late on September 12th going through early on the September 14th.
