…Sunspots are islands of magnetism that float on the surface of the sun. This one is emerging from depth and changing at such a rapid pace that its magnetic field is likely unstable. A reconnection event in AR1678’s magnetic canopy could lead to a significant solar flare. Stay tuned!
Check out this website to see footage of the “unrelated” meteor that caused havoc in Russia. February 15th hours before the meteor event 2012 DA14 we’ve all be anticipating!
Asteroid 2012 DA14 will approach within 17,200 miles of Earth when it zooms by during its close encounter this Friday, Feb. 15. That is the closest an asteroid the size of 2012 DA14, which is about 150 feet wide, that astronomers have known about in advance, NASA scientists said.
The asteroid will not only pass between Earth and the moon’s orbit, but also fly lower than the ring of geosynchronous communications, weather and navigationsatellites that fly high above the planet. Asteroid 2012 DA14 will be 5,000 miles closer to Earth than those satellites during the flyby.
No IMPACT is expected. Well, I sure hope so! My biggest fear is a meteor impact causing mile high waves from the ocean.

Bomb causing earthquake! CRAZY!
