LATEST SOLAR NEWS:
(Feb 1, 11:45 UTC) Solar wind from the coronal hole surged energy into the magnetosphere last night, causing geomagnetic storm conditions. Elevated solar wind intensity is expected for days but the geomagnetic conditions should stabilize after the stream reaches a plateau.
Seismic and Volcanic activity has been correlated to changes in our sun.
The recent global uptick in earthquakes and volcanic eruptions is likely attributed to the drop-off in solar activity, coronal holes, and the increase in Galactic Cosmic Rays penetrating silica-rich magma.
