The Sun to “Super-Flare” during the Summer of 2023?

While the Grand Solar Minimum will cause enough headaches and struggles to keep the human race occupied, there is an even more destructive threat looming: the shifting of Earth’s magnetic poles and the resulting depletion of our planet’s magnetic field (our protective shield against space weather).

One of the top scientists on the subject, David Mauriello of the Oppenheimer Ranch Project, has gone so far as to call the intensifying magnetic reversal his biggest worry: “It is my firm opinion that the magnetic reversal is more severe than the Grand Solar Minimum could ever be,” says Mauriello, because new research suggests that the combined effects of 1) a waning magnetosphere (a side-effect of the magnetic reversals/excursions, which can drop Earth’s magnetic field strength to below 10 percent of its maximum), coupled with 2) a powerful plasma discharge from the Sun could be due in as little as 2 years.

Citing a new study, “Discovery of an Extremely Short Duration Flare from Proxima Centauri Using Millimeter through Far-ultraviolet Observations,” one of the largest flares ever recorded in our galaxy –100 times more powerful than those emitted by the Sun– recently left Proxima Centauri, our star’s nearest neighbor.

Proxima Centauri is a red dwarf –the smallest, dimmest and most common type of main sequence stars in the galaxy– located approximately 4.25 light-years from Earth — Mauriello considers this distance one of two key factors when calculating the impact of a newly discovered threat, with the other being the dating of the mega flare.

In the recently published study, researchers used nine ground and orbital telescopes –including the Hubble Space Telescope, the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array and NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite– to closely monitor Proxima Centauri for a total of 40 hours over several months in 2019. On May 1, 2019, the team captured the super flare, which shone for just 7 seconds and was mainly visible in the ultraviolet spectrum.

Even at just 7 seconds, the outburst would have been the equivalent of an X-200+ escaping the Sun. And note, the highest-rated flaring ever recorded was the X-45 registered back in 2003 (needless to say, the flare was not Earth-facing), while the infamous Carrington Event is also generally considered to have been around an X-45.

Solar flares are tremendous explosions in the atmosphere of the Sun. They are capable of releasing as much energy as a billion+ megatons of TNT. The result of the sudden release of magnetic energy, in just a few seconds flares can accelerate solar particles to incredibly high velocities, and heat solar material to tens of millions of degrees. And while these periodic outbursts of energy posed little to no threat to the civilizations of the past, even just a moderate flaring (a low X-flare) would cause the instant collapse of our modern tech-driven society.

So, given the two key factors pertaining to Proxima Centauri’s mega-flaring —May, 2019 and 4.25 light-years— it is Mauriello’s supposition that, if recent advances in the understanding of the galactic current sheet and its mimicking of the solar current sheet hold true, then the cosmic “wave” that hit Proxima Centauri –causing it to super-flare– could now be racing towards our own solar system, meaning it could only be a matter of time before our Sun flares in a similar way — you can think of it as a surge of electricity running through a cable, in this case through the galactic Birkeland current that connects every astronomical object. Doing the math –with the admittedly limited factors that are known– that time can be easily calculated: May 2019 (the date of Proxima’s flaring) + 4.25 years (the distance in light-years that the galactic current wave has to travel before it reaches our solar system) sees our Sun mega-flaring during the summer of 2023 (near the solar maximum of Cycle 25–now due in 2024, according to NOAA). Further supporting Mauriello’s supposition, and suggesting the wave is indeed headed our way is the fact that Barnard’s Star –at 5.978 light years away– also recently super-flared, before Proxima Centauri, and at the expected interval.

Such an event would send us modern humans back to the Stone Age.

The flare wouldn’t even need to be Earth-facing, as such an outburst would likely cause a “halo effect.”

This would be the end of the grid, and game-over for life as we currently know it.

In addition, the ongoing waning of the magnetosphere would mean the Sun wouldn’t even need to outburst all that much — even a low-to-moderate X-flare would be enough to take out 90+ percent of the global population via the failure of our “systems”–namely food delivery infrastructures.

Also worth considering, this inbound galactic wave could-well be the trigger that flips Earth’s magnetic field into a full reversal.

Time will tell, of course, but we potentially don’t have much of it.

“You need to be ready (prepared) by the August of 2023,” concludes Mauriello.

22 Thoughts to “The Sun to “Super-Flare” during the Summer of 2023?”

  1. le_berger_des_photons

    you want to explain how you can know that something flared at proxima centauri “recently” when it would take 4.25 years for the light from that flare to get here? Perhaps you mean that there’s some even that happened a little more than 4.25 years ago (4.5 plus “recently) that is coming here at sub light speed? If that’s what you meant, you didn’t make it very clear. Maybe I’m the slowest one in the class, but that’s how I’m seeing it.

    1. Anonymous

      This was my immediate thought too. Wouldn’t that mean that this current wave would reach Earth just as we saw the flare? Or perhaps it’s delayed, but it still doesn’t make sense that we would have to wait the amount of years the light would travel since seeing the flare there, since we’ve already waited that amount of time.

    2. Luís Barros

      You don´t understood. The super flare that happened in the Proxima centauri, will also happen with our sun, it would take in 4.25 years. It has to do with the electrical system of our galaxy, which triggers this event.

  2. Keith

    I’m struggling with the astro-navigation. Barnard’s is 5.97LY away, above the ecliptic, while Proxima lies 4.25LY away, below the ecliptic from our perspective. They’re not in a straight-line from our perspective, meaning they’re actually 5.873 LY from each other.

    So on the current front described above, does it curve from Barnard’s to Proxima to the Sun? And does that mean Barnard’s super-flare occurred in 2014?

  3. Excellent article there Cap, I concur with David Muriello’s supposition here as there is plenty of data around too support this. The flare actually will be more damaging than most people would believe possible due to the weakening in the earths magnetic field, which will not be able to deflect the powerful blast when it occurs. Keep up the great work mate.

  4. Joel Dyer

    Uh, question. The flare on Proxima Centauri was detected here on May 1, 2019. It occurred there 4.25 years earlier. Any galactic current wave, moving at the speed of light, would have reached us at the same time as the electromagnetic radiation from the flare.

  5. Petr

    Re Proxima flare – we found out about it when light arrived, not instantly. Therefore the cosmic “wave” had to arrive at the same time. I do not think that that any “top scientist” would make such a basic mistake. Not much happened so far anyway. Steady as she goes…!

  6. Fin

    What I don’t understand about that: If light has travelled for 4.25 years until reaching earth, why should the galactic field need the double of that? Does ist travel at half of the light’s speed? Or if it travels at light’s speed, why didn’t it hit us in 2019?

  7. jo

    This is wrong. Proxima Centauri event on May 2019 was seen on Earth because it happened already 4,25 years ago, but light of this event travelled through space for more than 4 years to be captured on Earth on May 2019. Therefore David Muriello try to fool us. There will be no “galactic wave” but the changes will be on March 31st 2025, when new era begins.

    1. noumenon

      What will happen on March 31st, 2025, and how do you know? Sounds oddly specific; are you related to Nostradamus?

  8. Theodor Witter

    If there was a wave, which caused the flare at Proxima Centauri and then moved towards us with the speed of light, if would reach us at the same time as the light from the flare, i.e. May 1st, 2019. The whole theory is therefore complete nonsense, that every high school student should be able to debunk.

  9. Cap Allon

    I’ve put peoples comments re the speed of the “galactic wave” to Mauriello.
    It must clearly be sub-the speed of light for the calculations to work, though this is not clearly explained.

    I’ll keep you updated.

    1. noumenon

      Yeah, that’s what I found odd as well. It makes sense for it to propagate slower than the speed of light for sure, but it doesn’t make sense that this delay would be exactly the same amount of time it takes light to travel here in the first place, that would mean the wave would be moving at exactly 0.5c, which there doesn’t seem to be any specific reason for.

      It’s a very interesting thought in any case, the notion that there are current surges in our galactic neighborhood which would light up different stars in relatively close temporal proximity. Even if there is no superflare within a few years, I’m sure you’re familiar with Doug Vogt’s prediction about a micronova in 2046, although I have my doubts regarding the precision of these specific dates and years.

      At least it’s something to keep in the back of one’s mind, in order to not be totally unprepared if it should occur.

  10. Qtface

    Correct calculations or not, our Sun will micronova “soon”. It’s a given, it happens every 12,00 years or so. It is survivable or we wouldn’t be here today. It will be very disruptive. It is wise to prepare now. See Suspicious Observers for very detailed info.

  11. mk

    Yeah, something doesn’t sound right here. Anyway, if we assume there’s a “constant” galactic current sheet and we cross the sheet plane cyclically, then the speed of light has nothing to do with all this and we can only say both Bernard’s and Proxima have already passed this plane, but I have no idea where the Solar System currently is in this setting… On the other hand, if it’s a kind of plasma/current pulse, or a kind of a galactic mass ejection from the galactic centre, then what matters is the distance of the two above-mentioned stars from the centre and the distance of Earth from the centre. If we knew the distance of these two stars from the centre than we could calculate the speed of the wave based on the difference in distance and the time separating the two superflares.

  12. Dr Clement Jewitt

    I wonder whether Eta Carinae, at c.8thou lyrs away, would factor in to this ‘wave’, from galactic centre maybe? If not, where from?

  13. FlyingSaucer

    A ‘wave’ is simply that: a wave. You can see an explosion long before you feel the wave impact.

  14. Peter

    Speed of the wave. Good question.

    1. FlyingSaucer

      Yes, think nuclear blast. You see it…..then later it hits you.

      1. JD

        You see the nuclear blast first because light travels at the speed of light. You hear the blast and feel the shock wave later because the air wave is traveling at the speed of sound. Speed of light is much, much faster than the speed of sound.

  15. Robert Campbell

    If it is typical of a coronal mass ejection then the charged particles do not travel at the speed of light – a solar flare does but does not pack the punch of a CME, typified by the Carrington Event.
