Unusual Solar
X-Class Flare Activity

By Ted Twietmeyer
The size and duration of this X-class flare is almost unprecedented. I have been monitoring the sun daily for about 12 years now, using these charts originally from NOAA below. NASA operates and controls these satellites for NOAA.
All images below were captured on January 15th 2005. The proton flux chart you see below has marked "Jan 14" labeled on the X axis. On this data you see normal radiation levels typical of our sun. It appears something unusual is happening now as illustrated in the ongoing, upward trend in these charts.
The X-ray intensity chart below also has a space station impact. Although we hear deafening silence from NASA, it is well known that extended space station irradiation also has a large impact for those onboard the station. Astronauts cannot venture outside the protection module on the station for any length of time, if at all. Doing so could result in harmful doses of gamma radiation. Almost all space station modules afford almost no radiation protection, except for one specially designed protection module.
Note the long spike in the curve, has repeated with greater intensity. This is also extremely unusual. It appears another upward trend is developing:
In the white light spectrum, massive sun spots are safely visible only for those with properly filtered telescopes. These sunspots are the size of hundreds of earths across, and are far larger than they appear below. The two small sunspots are the normal size of visible light spots. The massive, concentrated cluster near the center of the image is somewhat unusual:
Our sun is supposedly a highly chaotic and random process. Yet we see events this taking place. This repetition makes these events highly unusual. Is this the result of outside tampering? Considering that "solar max" was *supposedly* over more than two years ago. Since excessive solar activity has not subsided, perhaps experiments or tampering using advanced technology is indeed the case:

To begin with, I'd like to point out an important fact about the proton chart shown in the post up above. The green plot line represents 100 MILLION volt level particles. This green plot line (which always has a noise factor always present in it) very RARELY leaves the baseline on the chart. Even though the red and blue lines may elevate from the baseline for a period of time. This is because so few particles are detected by the satellite at that high energy level.
Below is a new image, posted late today (1/16/05) by NASA. It is of our sun, taken at 30.4nm (nanometers.) This up near the X-ray spectrum, and above ultraviolet. (To help you compare this to visible light, Lasic eye corrective surgery uses 100nm. laser light, which is in the far ultraviolet. It cannot be seen by the eye at all, and will not pass through the lens of the eye to protect rod receptors.)
What I find most interesting are the data dropouts. A dropout (black block) at the top of the image is visible, but not impossible. It could have easily been corrected. The statistic probability of two dropouts resulting in two parallel bars, is beyond words. Further, having observed these images for many years such dropouts in images are VERY rare. And yet this happens during a time of intense flare activity. Some people will argue this is because of interference from the sun, corrupting data transmission. There are many problems with that argument. Data that you see in all these satellite images, are STORED in satellite processor memory before transmission. This is similar to what the Mars Rovers do to send images to earth.
When errors and dropouts occur, ground controllers can simply direct any of these satellites to RE-TRANSMIT the image as many times as required, to fill in missing blocks. I know from my previous work with NASA that even back in the late 90's, 50+ megabit/second data rates were not uncommon. Such an image would require only a fraction of a second to re-transmit and correct. Remember these are all gray scale images, with false color added later.
I've previously chronicled how these convenient "data dropouts" were used several months ago in the fall of 2004. I've found them in several panoramic images from the Mars Rovers, and you can see them here on my website at
So the question remains- just what is it we were not supposed to see? Perhaps the excitation source of the excessive solar activity is taking place at this wavelength and would appear in the image?

Below is another image posted late today by NASA at 28.4 nm. Note the interesting flag-like RECTANGULAR area in the upper left part of the sun. In the middle of this zone, is a tiny white horizontal line one pixel thick. If this were a dropout, it would be a black line (like the stellar background.) It is unclear what this white zone actually represents here. It may be sensor saturation. This large, dark flag-like area also appears in other NASA images taken at 17.1nm. and 19.5nm. It is also faintly visible in the above image (30.4nm.) which has the missing data.

The X-class flare event has now been degraded to an M-class flare. I will continue to monitor this long event for other changes.

The Solar Cycle of eleven years was both unique as well as interesting in this last cycle. First, the activity during the Solar Maximum was very large, with an unprecedented number of severe solar storms, each one deadlier (potentially) than the last. However what was most interesting is that the Solar Maximum ended abruptly rather than taper off as is normal.
The solar maximum should still be somewhat active based on previous maximum's but as we can see, it literally turned itself off just a few short months ago. This particular storm is, therefore, not exactly unprecedented but it is unusual, occurring alone on an otherwise peaceful surface of the sun.
Solar activity of this nature (likely less severe than this particular event) is to be expected. It is not necessarily a portent of something other than a very large sunspot during a time when the sun should be more active than it is at this present time. If the reader has been following sunspot activity, then the reader will know that this past summer and fall gave us sunspots and solar activity which was very severe. But it is not unusual for random events like this one to take place.
Further, the Solar Maximum does not always just turn off. And, the Solar Maximum was not over two years ago. As stated, the maximum most often tapers off slowly. That this recent Solar Maximum was not in the mainstream, that this particular and recent lack of activity is also not mainstream, that this particular large class event is also not mainstream, are all quite true, however.
I do not believe that any government has as much power as to cause the type of solar flare we've just witnessed.

As an aside, it was well known that whenever nuclear tests took place on earth, sunspots activity followed. Underground nuclear tests caused earthquakes [1] not just where the detonation took place, but also on the other side of the globe near India. What was not publicly disclosed are the effects on spacetime by nuclear detonations. Nuclear explosions must couple into zero point energy (ZPE) and subsequently the related component of time. Those who have built devices that tapped into ZPE, have found changes in both gravity and the flow of time. It's conceivable that such a ripple in time could travel tremendous distances out into the universe. Such a ZPE ripple could be perceived as a pain wave by some species that are sensitive to it. From some air force circles, this is why nuclear testing was stopped.
With this limited public historical proof, it would be foolish indeed to think that no technology could exist to disturb the sun. Just 20 years ago, mentioning weather control in a conversation would result in snickers and laughter. Not anymore, as it has quietly entered mainstream thinking. In fact, back in the 90's the military stated they will control the weather. HAARP would be one of the tools to do it. Chemtrails are another related tool. What is not clear, is how weather control might affect the sun. The earth and the sun work together as a system [3], therefore affecting one may very affect the other.
The military uses "acceptable risk" in developing weapons technologies. That is, risk to the public from using any given technology should something go wrong, or in evalutating "collateral damage." This had been the case in the past, but depleted uranium proves they don't care anymore. It would not surprise me that they may have already rationally explained away that a new weapon that creates solar activity of the type we see (intentional or not) is "acceptable."
Public knowledge of the workings of gravity are sketchy at best. As pointed out in the above paragraph, nuclear weapons do indeed affect the earth and sun. Perhaps military and other research has found what component of an explosion affects the sun, and a means to generate that component has been created.
Such a weapon would be the worst ever created, with unforseen effects reaching into the far future. A theory to explain the effects on the sun from nuclear explosions, may be found in the Richard Hoagland's Hyperdimensional Physics theory on the website. Indeed, there are many things out in space that are only now begining to be understood, such as Magnetars [2].

Most likely origin of Texas lights:
Yes, these are lights for real sure - and most likely the cause of four consecutive flares from the sun over the past few days. I've written about this recently at
An X class, an M class, an X class and now today, another M class.
The chart above is average over several days, so the four different flare events are not clearly shown.The Kp index on this NOAA chart has been up near the top of the chart. In simple terms this means that the sun's aurora (normally only visible at the pole) can now reach down into the southern regions of the US. I've seen it myself here in western NY in the past. It often manifests as waves of faint, pink light sweeping through the night sky, although a localized manifestation of a different type is certainly possible as was seen in Texas. It would be nice to capture just a tiny part of this energy. Located high up in the ionosphere, it has been estimated to generate billions of watts of electrical power.
If it wasn't for a few of days of snow here, we would certainly be seeing it here again. Imagine being on the space station right now - forced to stay in one of only two safe areas that are "radiation proof" (or so they tell the astronauts.) The astronauts will find out in a few months or years, when they see their doctor about some unexpected bleeding just how well it worked. But we'll never hear about it.
Personally, give me the earth's magnetic field for protection or 6" of lead sheeting, instead of the station's charged aluminum plates !
