    Another small M 1.6 from the big guy. I have never seen the baseline energy run so High, and for so long, it's like a constant C 2 to C 4 flaring.

    So far today, giant sunspot 2192 has produced 3 M-flares:

    M1.0 peaking at 08:20 UTC
    M1.2 peaking at 10:01 UTC
    M1.4 peaking at 14:33 UTC

    It will soon be turning to the backside of the Earth-facing sun.

    From spaceweather.com:

    Quote SUPER-SUNSPOT PREPARES TO DEPART: The biggest sunspot in nearly 25 years is about to leave the solar disk. This picture from Sergio Castillo of Corona CA shows AR2192 approaching the western limb on Oct. 27th:



    "For its final trick, AR2192 is going to treat us by mimicking a Giant Skull," says Castillo, one of many readers who has noted the resemblance between the sunspot and a skeletal face. "Say Happy Halloween as it gets ready to turn away from us. "

    As AR2192 approaches the sun's horizon, it is no longer facing Earth. However, the odds of an Earth-directed radiation storm are higher than ever. The reason is, the western limb of the sun is well-connected to Earth. Solar magnetic fields springing out of that region spiral back to our planet. If a sunspot passing through the area explodes, those spiralling magnetic fields can funnel energetic particles in our direction.

    In only a few days, the behemoth sunspot will begin a 2-week transit of the far side of the sun, carried around by the sun's 27-day rotation. However, that doesn't mean we've seen the last of this magnificent active region. Big sunspots typically persist for two or three solar rotations before they decay. After it departs in October, AR2192 will probaby return in November.

    Flare update... two more M flares to add to the list:

    M1.0 peaking at 16:20 UTC from sunspot 2192
    M1.3 peaking at 18:50 UTC from sunspot 2192

    And new (old?) entry:
    M2.3 peaking at 21:22 UTC from sunspot 2187 (?)

    So I guess we won't be seeing any large flares in a while then.

    even with the AR2192 at the edge where it is at, western hemisphere, there is a field couple to the earth.. so for a while as it gets over the edge, it could still affect earth thru CME's..

    Update of M-flares:

    M1.3 peaking at 00:37 UTC from sunspot 2192
    M3.5 peaking at 01:35 UTC from sunspot 2192
    M1.2 peaking at 04:28 UTC from sunspot 2187

    Thanks to the solar activity since Oct 16 produced by sunspot 2192, the cosmic ray index has been in a downfall, but now that solar acivity has decreased, the cosmic ray graphs are showing increases:

    My time now: 9:45 PM EST

    I hope this one does not come true but this afternoon during my afternoon meditation session, I saw, in my minds eye, a large swelling of the ocean along a coastline where people in long gowns (one of them wearing an orange gown) carrying things on their head were walking on land further into the distance. They seemed oblivious about what was going on on the ocean at that time. The vision could mean that a tsunami is going to occur or there will be a tsunami watch after a large earthquake occurs somewhere. Just jotting this down for documentation purposes.
