A third and fourth flare have erupted from sunspot 1283. The third came on September 7 at 6:36 PM ET, and was categorized as an X1.8 by the GOES spacecraft, making it the second X-class flare within 24 hours.

There was a (CME) associated with all three of the recent flares, but none of them are expected to travel directly toward Earth, and the first two were unlikely to cause aurora.

NASA computer models suggest that the latest CME may give a glancing blow to Earth on the morning of September 11, and might create some aurora.

The fourth flare from this same sunspot was detected by GOES at 11:36 AM ET on September 8. This was an M6.7 flare, considered moderate.

Great news!

Now show us the line spectra so we can see what's hiding beneath that glowing sphere of waste products we call the photosphere!

Bye, bye SSM and AGW models!

More solar flare videos and emission lines of elements from solar flares, e.g.,

May confirm or deny:

a.) Evidence of an iron-rich solar interior [1-5]
b.) The AGW model of Earth's global climate, and
b.) The Bilderberg model of the Sun's constant heat [6].

This web site may help show the spectra of 1283

The links don't work.

This is extremely important information.

Please send the links to

The information is under discussion many other places today:

1. Black holes


Bye, bye Al Gore!

2. Element synthesis:

3. Global warming:


Today (9/9/11) forty years of deception in science (1971-2011) [1] are melting away faster on than ice in Greenland!

The links intech tried to post are both to the same image
... which has nothing to do with spectra, though it is a cool animation in its own right.

My inputs:
sun as a source must be linked to fields,Flows and Reflector Concepts-See Cosmology vedas interlinks.
Any protective index helps advisory services.
Many of these aspects are missing or I consider Perception needs to be developed.Time is the essence of knowledge interface.

Thanks, intech and barakn!

To see the four inner planets (dots) [Mercury (gold), Venus (green), Earth (yellow) and Mars (red)] in the constantly changing web of space weather near the Sun:

Undercuts both:

a.) The AGW model of Earth's climate, and
a.) The SSM model of the Sun as a constant heat source.

Again, thanks!

The Sun's pulsar core is not controlled by politicians nor scientists who pretend ability to control or predict Earth's changing climate.

These are illegitimate offspring from the forty (40) year gestation period of a Chinese Dragon fertilized in Peking on 9-11 July 1971:

The pregnancy was hidden more than thirty (>30) years before being cited as footnote #4 in declassified documents on President Nixons trip to China on 21-28 Feb 1972:

President Nixon gave the first public hint in announcing on 5 Jan 1972 plans to dismantle the Apollo space program:


Nixon met USSR leaders on 22-29 May 1972 but gossip at the Lunar Science Conference on 10-13 Jan 1972 that leaders would sign a peace treaty in space while orbiting the world did not materialized.

Oh what a tangled web!
