by Alex Myles,

Solar Storm Now very Active. It takes a few days for the Coronal Mass Ejection (up to 10 billion tonnes of plasma) that is released with a Solar Flare to reach Earth, as it is so dense and heavy, which is why it has taken until today for the “active” Geomagnetic Storm status to be reached.

However, the energy from a Solar Flare, which is bright and light and slightly different, only takes 8 minutes to reach our planet – so it’s likely that those who are highly sensitive will have sensed the Solar Flares over this past week and Now BE feeling the full impact of this Storm.

Solar Storms temporarily disturb the Earth’s Magnetosphere as Solar Winds and Flares interact with Earth’s Electromagnetic Field. We all have a personal Electromagnetic Field that surrounds us (our aura) and any Electromagnetic Energy that affects the Earth also affects our own Energy Field.

Just as Earthly weather can affect us emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and physically – so too can the weather out in the Universe, particularly when it hits our Earth.

Over the past 24 hours Solar Wind has been increasingly intense, and this Incoming Energy can impact everything that exists on this planet.

One of the main things that those who are highly sensitive to energy will be noticing is a disturbance in their sleep patterns, as research has found that Solar Storms desynchronise our circadian rhythm, which is the internal biological clock that controls our sleep and wake times.

This is because the Electromagnetic activity from the Geomagnetic Storm is causing our Pineal Gland to produce an increase in Melatonin – which disrupts our sleep routine.

Solar Flares are known to affect the Schumann Resonance (Earth’s Heartbeat), which also affects our own inner beat. This is then believed to influence our brain activity, and general balance, well-being, and sense of stability in the world. Flares are also believed to directly impact our Nervous System, causing us to feel extra edgy, cautious, and generally as though we are existing on “fight or flight” mode.

Therefore, we may be feeling extra fearful right now, and generally thinking the worst in every situation we are involved in. We may even have noticed we are stressing over past mistakes, or feeling terrified of what the future holds.

This is all due to our lower vibrations being pulled upwards by the NEW Higher Vibrational Energy coming in from this Solar Storm, and it is all for our Higher Good and helps us make significant changes that moves us away from our past so that we move positively into the present / future.

Old unprocessed emotions (stored cellular memories) and past open wounds will also be rising to the surface so that they can be acknowledged and healed – which when resolved will lift our vibration Higher.

This may cause us to reach out to those we are estranged from, or those we have misunderstandings with, or that we have not forgiven, or who we wish to ask for forgiveness from.

We may also find we are argumentative and touchy with those around us, and we might feel as though everything external is highly turbulent right now – while this may be true, our heightened sense of awareness is having a magnifying effect.

This all sounds as though it’s going to be an extremely traumatic few days, however when we are aware of what’s occurring, and we pay attention to our thought patterns and how our body is feeling, we will realise we are totally in control and can navigate this storm with ease, just like we have done with every other one (whether consciously or subconsciously).

Intense energetic periods are always deeply transformational and are huge opportunities for Self-Growth. Many of us will notice an internal ‘shift’ occurring and over the next few days we may not feel 100% ourselves, and possibly even notice ‘out of body’ experiences. We may also be noticing an influx of Synchronicities happening, which are just little signs and affirmations alerting us that all is well and we’re heading along the right path.

It may feel as though our heads are noisy, and that even if we are entirely alone and in silence, it still seems as though everything is much too loud. Our ears may be ringing and our bodies might be feeling restless, making meditation and mindfulness suddenly feel far too difficult, if not impossible at times.

Every Cell in our body will feel on High Alert, as we sense the Incoming Energy Waves. Our Aura (our personal electromagnetic field) will naturally pick up on the incoming High vibrations in the Atmosphere and will be working like crazy to attune to this NEW Energy so that we can vibrate on the same frequency and return once again to Peace and Harmony.

On a Collective level, HUman Consciousness is receiving an invitation from the Universe to vibrate on a much Higher frequency than the one we are currently vibrating on.

For a Shift in our personal lives, as well as overall Humanity, it is essential we place trust in Divine Universal Energy and ride out the next few days of this solar storm with inner, and external, peacefulness, calmness, and faith.

Although we will feel triggered to explode, like the Sun has, if we respond with Compassion, Kindness, Understanding, and Empathy, it enhances and uplifts our own, as well as the Collective Energy of the entire Earth.
Some common symptoms people experience during Solar Storms are:

    Pressure headaches
    Feeling out of sorts, or unbalanced
    Flushes
    Dizziness, nausea
    Exhaustion
    Ear ringing
    Difficulty focusing
    Confusion, foggy mind, forgetful
    Temporarily misplacing items
    Disturbed sleep patterns
    Anxiety, stress, irritability, sadness
    Nervousness, worry, fear
    Overwhelm
    Heightened awareness, enhanced intuition, insights that seem to appear from ‘nowhere’
    Difficulty tracking time (time either feels too slow or at great speed)
    Noticing synchronicities, i.e. certain number patterns reappearing
    Premonitions, intense dreams or nightmares
    Struggles with communication
    Electronic devices messing up

This Hubble image captures 265,000 galaxies WHOA !
« Reply #1427 on: May 27, 2019, 12:13:10 PM »




This Hubble Space Telescope image represents the largest, most comprehensive “history book” of galaxies in the universe.

The image, a combination of nearly 7,500 separate Hubble exposures, represents 16 years’ worth of observations.

The ambitious endeavor, called the Hubble Legacy Field, includes several Hubble deep-field surveys, including the eXtreme Deep Field (XDF), the deepest view of the universe. The wavelength range stretches from ultraviolet to near-infrared light, capturing all the features of galaxy assembly over time.

The image mosaic presents a wide portrait of the distant universe and contains roughly 265,000 galaxies. They stretch back through 13.3 billion years of time to just 500 million years after the universe’s birth in the big bang. The tiny, faint, most distant galaxies in the image are similar to the seedling villages from which today’s great galaxy star-cities grew. The faintest and farthest galaxies are just one ten-billionth the brightness of what the human eye can see.

The wider view contains about 30 times as many galaxies as in the Hubble Ultra Deep Field, taken in 2004. The new portrait, a mosaic of multiple snapshots, covers almost the width of the full Moon. Lying in this region is the XDF, which penetrated deeper into space than this legacy field view. However, the XDF field covers less than one-tenth of the full Moon’s diameter.

First known ‘intergalactic bridge’ discovered 10 million light-years away

10 Jun, 2019
A so-called ‘intergalactic bridge’ that stretches between two galaxies has been spotted 10 million light-years away by scientists who are hailing it the first discovery of its kind.

The mysterious trail of magnetic fields and electrons connects two clusters of galaxies named Abell 0399 and Abell 0401. The find offers astronomers new insight into the “cosmic web” of filamentary structures that connect distant objects in the universe.

“Until today, a magnetic field had never been observed in the filaments that connect the clusters between them. The filaments of this web are in fact extremely rarefied and difficult to observe,” read the statement announcing the findings.

The Milky Way galaxy which serves as home to Earth is likely the result of an epic galactic collision, according to a new study from researchers at the Rochester Institute of Technology.

Science Alert reports that the collision probably took place with a smaller galaxy which is orbiting the Milky Way:

    “Antlia 2, the ‘ghost of a galaxy’ orbiting the Milky Way, is a dark horse in more ways than one. Not only is it so faint it was only just discovered last year, it may now be responsible for curious ripples in the hydrogen gas that makes up the Milky Way’s outer disc.

    “Antlia 2’s current position is consistent with a collision with the Milky Way hundreds of millions of years ago that could have produced the perturbations we see today.”

Earth hit by highest energy photons ever recorded from the Crab Nebula
MIT Technology Review
Fri, 21 Jun 2019
The Tibetan Plateau is a vast elevated plain almost five kilometers above sea level, sometimes called the Roof of the World. It is bordered to the south by the world’s highest mountain range and to the north by desert lands. It is one of the most isolated places on Earth.

But the extreme altitude makes it a useful place for scientists. In 1990, they built an observatory here to study the showers of subatomic particles that rain down from the upper atmosphere whenever it is hit by a high-energy cosmic ray. This work is better done at high altitude because there is less atmosphere to absorb the particles.

Since then, the so-called Tibet Air Shower Array has recorded vast numbers of high-energy cosmic rays, particles accelerated to huge energies by astrophysical phenomena such as supernovas, active galactic nuclei, and mysterious as-yet-unidentified sources.

But the array also picks up air showers caused by a different source-high-energy photons. These mysterious photons are also created by astrophysical phenomena such as the interaction between high-energy particles and the cosmic microwave background. Consequently, they can provide a unique insight into these processes and the environments in which they occur.

Over the years, the Tibet Air Shower Array has spotted plenty of these photons with energies up to dozens of teraelectronvolts (TeV 1012). That’s roughly equivalent to the highest-energy photons that can be created on Earth. But nobody has ever observed more powerful photons.

Until now. Today, researchers from the Tibet Air Shower Gamma Collaboration say they have observed photons with energies above 100 TeV for the first time, including a remarkable photon with an energy of almost 500 TeV. This single photon has about the same energy as a falling Ping-Pong ball and is the highest-energy photon ever recorded.

Astronomers see 'warm' glow of rings around Uranus
« Reply #1431 on: June 29, 2019, 02:08:59 PM »

Composite image of Uranus’s atmosphere and rings at radio wavelengths, taken with the ALMA array in December 2017. The image shows thermal emission, or heat, from the rings of Uranus for the first time, enabling scientists to determine their temperature: a frigid 77 Kelvin (-320 F). Dark bands in Uranus’s atmosphere at these wavelengths show the presence of molecules that absorb radio waves, in particular hydrogen sulfide gas. Bright regions like the north polar spot (yellow spot at right, because Uranus is tipped on its side) contain very few of these molecules.
The rings of Uranus are invisible to all but the largest telescopes-they weren’t even discovered until 1977-but they’re surprisingly bright in new heat images of the planet taken by two large telescopes in the high deserts of Chile.

The thermal glow gives astronomers another window onto the rings, which have been seen only because they reflect a little light in the visible, or optical, range and in the near-infrared. The new images taken by the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) and the Very Large Telescope (VLT) allowed the team for the first time to measure the temperature of the rings: a cool 77 Kelvin, or 77 degrees above absolute zero-the boiling temperature of liquid nitrogen and equivalent to 320 degrees below zero Fahrenheit.

The observations also confirm that Uranus’s brightest and densest ring, called the epsilon ring, differs from the other known ring systems within our solar system, in particular the spectacularly beautiful rings of Saturn.

“Saturn’s mainly icy rings are broad, bright and have a range of particle sizes, from micron-sized dust in the innermost D ring, to tens of meters in size in the main rings,” said Imke de Pater, a UC Berkeley professor of astronomy. “The small end is missing in the main rings of Uranus; the brightest ring, epsilon, is composed of golf ball-sized and larger rocks.”

By comparison, Jupiter’s rings contain mostly small, micron-sized particles (a micron is a thousandth of a millimeter). Neptune’s rings are also mostly dust, and even Uranus has broad sheets of dust between its narrow main rings.

“We already know that the epsilon ring is a bit weird, because we don’t see the smaller stuff,” said graduate student Edward Molter. “Something has been sweeping the smaller stuff out, or it’s all glomming together. We just don’t know. This is a step toward understanding their composition and whether all of the rings came from the same source material, or are different for each ring.”

Rings could be former asteroids captured by the planet’s gravity, remnants of moons that crashed into one another and shattered, the remains of moons torn apart when they got too close to Uranus, or debris remaining from the time of formation 4.5 billion years ago.

This week our planet will cut across a vast swarm of meteors, including some big enough to wipe out a major city with the violence of a nuclear weapon.

Known as the Taurid Complex, the cosmic debris has already been implicated in the Tunguska Event of June 30, 1908, when a huge meteor exploded over Siberia unleashing the power of 1,000 Hiroshima atomic bombs.

Now Earth is about to make its closest approach to the same swarm since June 1975, when instruments put on the moon by the Apollo missions detected enormous numbers of meteors pummelling our nearest celestial neighbour for several days.

Exactly what will happen over the coming days is unknown, but astronomers around the world are preparing to observe the contents of the Taurid Complex as the planet sweeps through.

The plan is to peer into the cloud of debris looking for meteors similar in size to the 100-metre wide object responsible for the Tunguska Event.

By determining the orbit of such objects, astronomers believe they can identify those on a collision course Earth early enough to take action against them.

They also hope to test the theory that the Taurid Complex is just the remnant of a colossal comet-like object that entered the solar system thousands of years ago and whose disintegration still poses a threat to our planet.

NASA just dropped an astonishingly elaborate map of more than 4,000 exoplanets known to exist outside our Solar System, which takes the form of a video that shows how many exoplanets we’ve discovered each year since 1991.

Exoplanets are not only interesting to us because they orbit a different star, but also because they have the potential to harbor life.

Imagine two incredibly massive black holes — each approximately 800 million times larger than our sun — colliding with each other. What would that look like? And exactly would happen when they do meet?

According to research in The Astrophysical Journal Letters, the black holes in question are located 2.5 billion light years from Earth, meaning that it will take some 2.5 billion years for astronomers to even detect the explosion of cosmic waves that will be generated by the collision.

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 voltagecollapse of 64% on the North Dakota to Manitobainterconnection 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.

We may have discovered thousands of exoplanets, but few have astronomers as excited as a newly discovered system located just 73 light-years away.

It could not only tell us about planet formation, it could lead us to the discovery of a habitable world.

Around an unusually quiet red dwarf 73 light-years away, the planet-hunting TESS satellite has identified three planets – one rocky world just a little larger than Earth, and two sub-Neptunes about twice Earth’s size.

And they seem to be linked in a chain of resonance, interacting gravitationally to produce a pattern in their orbital periods.

The star has been named TOI-270, and its planets TOI-270b (the rocky planet), TOI-270c and TOI-270d.

“TOI-270 is a true Disneyland for exoplanet science, and one of the prime systems TESS was set out to discover,” said astrophysicist Maximilian Günther of MIT’s Kavli Institute for Astrophysics and Space Research.

“You can really do all the things you want to do in exoplanet science, with this system.”

To be clear, none of the three planets are likely to be habitable themselves. TOI-270b, a rocky planet about 1.25 times the size of Earth, is the closest to the star, whipping around in a complete orbit once every 3.4 days.

Although the star is a lot cooler than the Sun, and just 40 percent of its size, that is still too close for liquid water on the surface, one of the primary metrics for determining habitability.

Of the two sub-Neptunes – one 2.42 times the size of Earth, the other 2.13 times the size – the larger one has an orbit of 5.7 days; this is also too close to the star for habitability.

The smaller sub-Neptune has an 11.4-day orbit, which means that its outer atmosphere could be habitable temperature-wise; but it likely has a very thick atmosphere that creates a greenhouse effect, leaving the surface far too hot for survivability. (Sounds a bit like Venus.)

Residents of Far-East Russian Region Wake Up to Bizarre Pitch-Black Morning


The people of Siberia’s Verkhoyansk district got a feeling of deja vu last Friday when they woke up to total darkness at an hour when the sun should have been high in the sky. A similar phenomenon occurred in the region just over a year ago.

This time of year, dawn breaks at around 4 am in Verkhoyansk, but photos taken by locals at around 8 in the morning show no sign of the sun, as entire settlements are bathed in almost complete darkness with a bizarre yellow tinge to it. Luckily, locals were used to such unusual phenomena, as just last year, in July, Verkhoyansk and other Yakutian regions experienced another pitch black morning. In fact some people took to social media to ask if this is becoming some sort of weird tradition.

I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world.
You don’t know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind
