Kp Graph of the Severe Geostorm (Which Is Now Ended) . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

Here’s the Kp graph of the severe geostorm which ended today. We had 24 hours’ worth of geostorm conditions in 3 days; 3 of the 3-hour-interval Kp bars were at Kp 8 (only Kp 9 is higher). These are NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) data ….

Dear Ones,

UP-TO-DATE SPACE WEATHER ALERTS

Because of the incoming geostorm, I’ve taken a look at “Alerts, Watches and Warnings” from the NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center, http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/ ..

More technical, more detailed, and more prolific current NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) reports can be seen here: http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/products/alerts-watches-and-warnings ..

I notice that the Australian Government’s Bureau of Meteorology’s Space Weather Service (SWS) has the current detailed space weather data for Australia nicely formatted:

Link: “Space Weather Services,” http://www.sws.bom.gov.au/index.php … In the section “Today’s Space Weather” click on “Detailed Forecast” … That information is courtesy of the NOAA’s SWPC.

NASA SPACE WEATHER PREDICTION CENTER HISTORICAL DATA

NASA SWPC offers weekly historical reports on the NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information website. It looks like these are available as pdfs a few weeks after the fact.

To access these historical data, go to https://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/stp/spaceweather.html and then, under NOAA Space Weather Products,

Each weekly pdf contains Space Weather Highlights, Space Weather Outlook, and Space Weather Data.

NOAA SPACE WEATHER SCALE DESCRIPTIONS

NOAA Space Weather Scale descriptions can be found at www.swpc.noaa.gov/noaa-scales-explanation .. These describe the

  • geomagnetic storm (G), which relate to the planetary K (Kp) index,
  • solar radiation storm (S), which relate to the flux level of greater than 10 MeV (i.e., 10 million electron volt) particles (1), and
  • radio blackout space weather scales (R), which have to do with the strength of solar flares M1 through X20. (2)

These scales are labeled G1 through G5, S1 through S5, and R1 through R5, respectively.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

FOOTNOTES

(1) “In high-energy physics, the electronvolt is often used as a unit of momentum. A potential difference of 1 volt causes an electron to gain an amount of energy (i.e., 1 eV). This gives rise to usage of eV (and keV, MeV, GeV or TeV) as units of momentum, for the energy supplied results in acceleration of the particle.” –from “Electronvolt,” in Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronvolt … WP:CC BY-SA

Note that “MeV and meV are multiples and submultiples of the electron volt unit referring to 1,000,000 eV and 0.001 eV, respectively.” –from “MEV,” in Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MEV  … WP:CC BY-SA

Thus these two … MeV and meV are worlds apart in magnitude, based merely on the capitalization of the initial ‘M’ … or the lack thereof. The term ‘MeV’, sometimes referred to as ‘megaelectron volt’, pertains to a million electron volts of energy, which would mean very considerable acceleration of a particle sent forth from our Sun during a coronal mass ejection.

It seems to me that this might have to do with the solar wind speed data we see on Space Weather, www.spaceweather.com ..

(2) As there was a solar flare variously reported as X28 and X45 in 2003, this scale might be rendered, on the far end, unhelpful. For information on the 2003 X flare, see:

“Biggest Ever Solar Flare Was Even Bigger Than Thought,” from American Geophysical Union, 16 March 2004, https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2004/03/040316072425.htm ..

Dear Ones,

I have been doing some sunspot research to find out what happened in the years 2000-2001 and 2013, which signaled large changes in my own hologram. Taking all this beyond the interpersonal and physical-astral arena, I thought I would check astrogeophysics for an explanation. Here’s what I have:

CLASSIFICATION OF SOLAR FLARES: X-CLASS, M-CLASS, C-CLASS

Scientists classify solar flares according to their x-ray brightness in the wavelength range 1 to 8 Angstroms. There are 3 categories:

  • X-class flares are big; they are major events that can trigger planet-wide radio blackouts and long-lasting radiation storms.
  • M-class flares are medium-sized; they can cause brief radio blackouts that affect Earth’s polar regions. Minor radiation storms sometimes follow an M-class flare.
  • Compared to X- and M-class events, C-class flares are small with few noticeable consequences here on Earth.

Top 50 Solar Flares, 1998-Present

Here is a link to the 50 largest solar flares since 1998 …

Link: “Top 50 Solar Flares,” at SpaceWeatherLIve, https://www.spaceweatherlive.com/en/solar-activity/top-50-solar-flares ..

HOW SOLAR FLARE ACTIVITY VARIES DURING THE PHASES OF AN 11-YEAR SOLAR CYCLE

Our Sun has 11-Year Solar Cycles (1), also called ‘Sunspot Cycles’, during which there’s a reasonably predictable variance in solar flare activity. Scientists divide these cycles into three periods, based on the sunspot activity that tends to take place: pre-maximum, maximum, and post-maximum.

The first 4 years are termed ‘pre-maximum’ with regard to the number of sunspots. The next 3 years represent maximum sunspot activity for the cycle. And the last 4 years of the cycles are called ‘post-maximum’.

The term ’11-year’ is approximate; for instance, the last full 11-year Solar Cycle, Cycle 23, (2) lasted from June of 1996 through January of 2006. (3) During that cycle, the average number of monthly X-flares (these are the big solar flares) were:

  • 1.5 per month for pre-maximum years
  • 4 per month for maximum years, and
  • 6 per month for post-maximum years (4)

THE X-FLARES OF YEARS 2000-2001 AND THE PHENOMENA OF GLOBAL TELEPATHY AND EMF-SENSITIVITY

For the years 2000 and 2001, during which many people globally began to rise to telepathic awareness, and to become EMF-sensitive, I did a search of NASA SWPC data available through weekly reports on the NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information website, (5) and came up with annual and daily figures for X-flare occurrences. I’ve included the data for 1999, a pre-maximum year, for contrast:

X-Flares Per Year
1999: 5 X flares
2000: 16 X flares
2001: 19 X flares

Daily Occurrences and Numbers of X-Flares for 1999-2001

04/23/1999 1 X

11/25/2001 1 X
12/11/2001 1 X
12/13/2001 1 X

Here is a list of X-flares from 1976 to 7 September 2017:  http://www.spaceweather.com/solarflares/topflares.html  .. 

THE CURRENT 11-YEAR SOLAR CYCLE (CYCLE 24)

The current 11-year Solar Cycle, known as Cycle 24, commenced in January 2008 and is still ongoing. I’ve checked on the number of X flares for years 2007 through 2016 (so far) and found the below statistics (6).

It looks to me like the period termed ‘maximum’ started a year early during the current cycle, so I’ve put 2011 into the ‘maximum’ period.

X-Flares per Year for Solar Cycle 24 (so far)

Pre-Maximum
2008: none
2009: none
2010: none

Maximum
2011: 8 X
2012: 7 X
2013: 12 X
2014: 4 X

Post-Maximum (partial)
2015: 2 X
2016: none as of 9/2016

X-FLARE ACTIVITY AND PLANETARY AND PERSONAL HOLOGRAM UPGRADES IN 2013

I note in particular the very active flare activity … especially X-flare activity … in 2013, which took place in only 3 months … May, October, and November … with 4 X-flares in each of them. I mention this because of the big upgrades in the planetary hologram that occurred in 2013.

For instance, in October 2013, there were four solar flares within 5 days (6):

X1.1 on 19 October 2013
M87. and X1.6 on 22 October 2013
X3.1 on 24 October 2013

By consequence, it was an eventful year for the clair crowd as well as for lightworkers, pathfinders, and wayshowers.

ON BEING PREPARED FOR FUTURE SOLAR EVENTS

For those who are beginning to develop EMF-sensitivity as one of their new clair abilities, I recommend taking R&R during X-flare events, as changes in the hologram, both planetary and personal, can have untoward effects on sensory perception. (7)

Jay Weidner has done a film, “The Last Avatar” … http://thelastavatarmovie.com/ … that displays, in the final chase and triumph scenes, some aspects of the unusual perceptual, emotional, sensory, and extrasensory phenomena that can occur during hologrammatic shifts occasioned by solar events.

The feeling of this movie, and the themes of courage, nobility, and intent to uplift humanity during times of great personal change, are good representations of the personal and global transformational energies occasioned by the Solar Events, including among others, X-flare events, taking place in this time of Awakening, of greater EMF connection with the energies of Laniakea, (7) our local star supercluster.

Here are some simple guidelines to help prepare individuals, schools and churches, military, security personnel, and law enforcement for the perceptual, emotional, sensory, and extrasensory phenomena that may be experienced during Solar Events:

Dear Ones,

This video is about a very curious sound I heard in a vase during a geostorm on 17 March 2015. Would this be like the sound when you hold a conch shell up to your ear?

There is a lightly edited Summary after the video, including a Soundtrack.

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

17 March 2015. We are in the midst of a geostorm today. I was looking at one of the NOAA/SWPC charts, and it looks like it dipped up to G9 today … just ever so briefly .. and then now it is back down to G8, I think, which is still quite a geomagnetic storm …

So anyway, I had this flower vase here …

… that I was putting flowers in, inside the house, and I was going to store it, and I held it up like this … [Shows holding the open end of the vase up towards her head] …

The back of it was facing one of the windows of the house, and I was getting ready to put it on a shelf and store it, and I heard the weirdest sound from it … the kind of sound I have never heard before.

It sounded so strange, and so different, that I was sure I was not able to hear sounds like that … But now I can hear it, you know? … It was weird.

So I brought the vase outside, where I noticed that I could hear more of a sound … like when you listen to a conch shell, you know?

And now I am going to see if I can record the sound with the camcorder. So hold on …

Soundtrack: Sound of Vase During Geostorm, 17 March 2015
(playing the same, short recording five times … the silent intervals are between the clips)

 

21 March 2015: I did not record enough of that last geostorm in the vase, so I repeated the recording five times, so that you could get the general notion. And it was a weird sound.

So then I thought: I will wait till after the geostorm, and I will do a control study, and see what the vase sounds like then. And so now it is after the geostorm, and here is the control sound … the sound when the Kp index (the planetary K index) gets down to mostly … well, it has been pinging up to 5, but mostly down to the green zone (the normal zone). So here goes; take a listen …

Soundtrack: Sound of Vase During Geostorm, 21 March 2015
