INCREASING CHANCE OF FLARES: There are now 3 sunspots facing Earth with unstable ‘delta-class’ magnetic fields: AR3181, 82 and 83. NOAA forecasters say there is a 40% chance of M-class solar flares and a 20% chance of X-flares on Jan. 8th. Solar flare alerts: SMS Text.
CHANCE OF FLARES TODAY: NOAA forecasters say there is a 20% chance of X-class solar flares today. If it happens, it will probably come from sunspot AR3182, now turning to face Earth:
AR3182 has already produced X-class events on Jan. 3rd and Jan 6th, so another one would be in character. Of equal interest is sunspot AR3181, which has doubled in size in the past 24 hours and is now directly facing Earth. Solar flare alerts: SMS Text.
Joint pain, headache and just feeling crappy is normal. Drink water, be quiet, and rest. Coffee helps the brain. Happy lights or infrared lamps do as well.
