A major solar storm is hitting Earth.
The storm was generated by a large CME, and a series of M-class flares from March 15 , which originally followed a X2.2 flare on March 11 2015.
The particle blast always takes 2-3 days to arrive at Earth (physical travel time of the charged particles).
The X2.2, and this newest solar storm can BOTH be seen on the MIMIC microwave background imagery. This is an unintended use of the total precipitation 32GHz morphed composite view of the Earths weather systems.
As it turns out, whenever there is a large Earth facing solar flare, or a large Earth facing CME (coronal mass ejection), this particular system actually shows the incoming blast as it reaches Earth.
This screenshot shows the newest incoming blast about half way through, today March 17 2015:
In the past, we’ve seen other strange anomalies appear on this system.
August 2011, at a time of heavy solar activity, we saw this event… August 10-11, 2011.
After this event seen below, a series of rare earthquakes occurred, including the Virginia East Coast 5.9M earthquake, the Colorado 5.3M earthquake, and multiple 6.0M+ events across the Pacific.
