    A Giant fissure has opened across the Sun and is spewing rapid solar winds toward our planet. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory got wind of the massive hole on Friday morning. This coronal hole is a vast region where the Sun’s magnetic field tears apart, allowing solar wind to escape. Super-charged solar winds flowing from the Sun’s atmosphere are expected to reach Earth on April 23 or 24. According to the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, this could whip up a “moderately strong” geomagnetic storm.

    We're the United states nothing can bring us down or take our power out. We live on planet fantasy where nothing is ever wrong, and nobody can ever take our nation down. Yeah i'm being a smart ass.

    A G1 (Minor) geomagnetic storm Watch has been issued for 22 April 2017 due to influence from the 18 Apr CME. G1 (Minor) geomagnetic storm condition

    G2 (Moderate) Geomagnetic Storm Watch Issued for 23 April

    SWPC Forecasters have issued a G2 (Moderate) geomagnetic storm watch for 23 April followed by a G1 (Minor) geomagnetic storm watch for 24 April due

    G 2 Moderate
    Power systems: High-latitude power systems may experience voltage alarms, long-duration storms may cause transformer damage.

    Spacecraft operations: Corrective actions to orientation may be required by ground control; possible changes in drag affect orbit predictions.

    Other systems: HF radio propagation can fade at higher latitudes, and aurora has been seen as low as New York and Idaho (typically 55° geomagnetic lat.).

    End Times is being silly. A G2 is not going to be major.

    For thousands of years the sun has been shrinking 5 foot a day.
    I'm not worried.

    Time for an update to the MindWars Doom-Tracker.

    1. Flu pandemic
    2. Financial collapse
    3. War with Korea
    4. Artificial intelligence run amok
    5. Mass extinctions
    6. Heavily armed Muslims in the US
    7. Russian Bombers
    8. Wild fires out of control with some secret reason they started
    9. Nuclear war wipes out everyone
    10. Massive power outage with boilerplate FEMA reference
    11. FEMA Operation Gotham false flag
    12. Cell phones causing brain cancer
    13. Coronal hole from giant fissure on the sun

    As always, thanks again for MindWars for the vigilance! I've stopped contributing to my 401k since obviously doom is around the corner.
