Thanks for the reply mate, just wondered if any CME's at us are likely or possible?

P.

Very low odds. Nothing that would effect us.

Very best,

Sometime they can face a bit too close to us and the worry is if we get a Huge one coming our way.

Thank you.... but what do they have to do with taking pictures of the Sun?

EDIT: going to the next page I see your answer was incorrect...

Coronal Mass Ejections....

Some times the sun has sola activity facing us and we have often had small blast from the sun, these are supposed to show as small interference with radio equipment and some say cause the Northen Lights.

April 3rd, 2020

A new cycle 25 AR, #2759, has rolled around the limb and is nice and active. It contains a decent but small sunspot with a visible umbra.

April 4th 2020,

AR2759 persists, the umbra has vanished, but some new proms have appeared.

It has been 10 months since I fired up the Quark. Decided today as it was warm, 50F. Broke out the Lunt 102 and put the Quark on it.

I had to remember how to use the mount and then since I had a crash sometime back I had to download astrostakkert and registax again and then figured out the wavelets and then in PS luckily I had saved my curve presets, saved some time.
Not the greatest shot but at least I got out to do it.

Lunt 102 achro, Quark Chromosphere, ZWO ASI174mm

These photos are really amazing. I once knew a girl back in high school who had a bit of an obsession, she kept staring at the sun. Burned her corneas a few times, at least. I wonder how her vision is now...


I'm mainly here for the snacks

Watched a film on tv the other day - another of those well timmed doomsday films called 2012 it was about a very strong sun flare hitting the earth causing a disturbance to the earths core and massive earth quakes and a pole shift.

In reality, in our historical recordings of solar flares, the biggest ones we've recorded and knew what they were, were in 1989 and 2001. The 89 storm knocked out power grids in North America. The one of 01 didn't hit Earth, but was even bigger. Over 100 years ago, in the 1800's there was one that hit us that was big enough to knock out telegraph communications. Something like that hitting us today would cause major issues with electric grids and most communication services.

But no Earthquakes or Pole shifting. :)
