    Just as an exercise ... does this mean that the GMT+8 zone (will be around noon there) will
    be facing the sun optimally when it arrives ? (I know there is still an +/- 6 hours uncertainty)
    I think it will be more like in the evening as 10 pm EST is around 2 am over there (+/- daylight thingy).

    See: I posted 10 pm EST and my post time is 2 am GMT.

    *Edit*

    Oooops, sorry Operator I flunked the "exercise"... didn't pay attention to the + 8...

    G'day Operator,

    Yes that is correct.
    Also for our purposes UT* (such as UTC) is the same as GMT.

    From Spaceweather.com:

    Quote ANOTHER X-FLARE: Earth-orbiting satellites have detected another strong flare from sunspot 1283. The X1.8-class event at 2238 UT on Sept. 7th produced a bright flash of extreme UV radiation and hurled an inky-dark plume of plasma into space. Click to view the movie from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory:

    SOLAR RADIO BURSTS: This week's sharp increase in solar activity has turned the sun into a radio transmitter. Bursts of shortwave static are coming from the unstable magnetic canopy of sunspot 1283. Tuesday in New Mexico, amateur radio astronomer Thomas Ashcraft recorded some samples at 21 MHz: listen. Radio listeners should remain alert for this kind of solar activity as sunspot 1283 continues to seethe.

    ANOTHER X-FLARE: Earth-orbiting satellites have detected another strong flare from sunspot 1283. The X1.8-class event at 2238 UT on Sept. 7th produced a bright flash of extreme UV radiation and hurled an inky-dark plume of plasma into space. Click to view the movie from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory:

    This is the third significant flare from sunspot 1283 since Sept. 6th. All three eruptions propelled CMEs in the general direction of Earth. Not one of the CMEs, however, will hit our planet squarely. Glancing blows from the three clouds will commence sometime on Sept. 9th and continue through Sept. 11th, possibly sparking minor geomagnetic storms. Solar flare alerts: text, voice.

    X-flares of Solar Cycle 24: There have been only a handful of X-flares since the beginning of new Solar Cycle 24. Here is a complete list so far, all in 2011: Feb. 15 (X2), March 9 (X1), Aug. 9 (X7), Sept. 6 (X2), Sept. 7 (X2). Before these five, the previous X-flare occured on Dec.14, 2006, (X1) during old Solar Cycle 23.

    G'day All,

    Sunspot 1283 seems to be almost "pulsing" daily...
    1283 M6 class flare at 15:46 UTC.
    Solar wind is still low (330km/sec), Kp low (2) and Bz is still "North" (1.3nT).
    All clear on the Southern front.

    Kind Regards,

    G'day joedjemal,

    I don't think it did.
    Kp has been low (1).
    Bz still "North" (means less likelihood of CME getting through).
    Solar wind low (305Km/sec).

    I don't reckon this series are a threat as they are reported to be "glancing" the Earth.

    Opinions anyone?

    Same thought here ... I additionally wonder if all the chemtrailing changed our atmosphere in such a way
    that via conductivity or maybe reflection the arrival of a CME could end up on all kind of unexpected places.

    P.S I also realize it probably did not arrive yet

    And..Solarsoft says there was an M-class flare this morning around 6:00 UTC. There has been another M-class flare....but it isn't up on the graphs yet.

    Well that matches exactly with my 'exercise' ... GMT+8 zone would be west Australia

    I'm in GMT-4 and it's almost noon here ... so in about 12 hours it will be midnight here and noon of September 10th
    in west Australia. The expected arrival time is in approx. 12 hours.
