Why does an article written today say that we should expect radio blackouts today/tonight, link to a site that specifically says radio blackouts will occur 3 days ago? September 10th

MindStalker: Why does an article written today say that we should expect radio blackouts today/tonight, link to a site that specifically says radio blackouts will occur 3 days ago? September 10th


I'm not going to read the article, but maybe because we've had a couple of flares, include 3 and 4 days ago, so they're referencing different possible interruptions?

Answer in article:

The Sun is supposed to be approaching solar minimum - a period where hardly a ripple marks its surface. But observations over the centuries have shown that when a solar 'hot spot' does emerge at this time, it tends to be very hot. It's times like these that have produced some of the biggest solar flares recorded.

But people don't have the societal mass memory retention to adjust to something as log as an 11-year solar cycle and remember what happens.

THIS
Enough already. The solar cycle tracks the sunspot number and it's still...er... spot on. This is what we call an outlier. These happen. Why is it that we can have an increase in the yearly averaged global temperature for decades and people deny it, but one active sunspot at a slightly unusual time and it's "OMG! the sun's going rogue"?

/This is why we need to teach statistics in grade school.

Lack of virgin sacrifices during the eclipse.

Also solar minimum does not mean no flares or weaker. It just means a lower quantity of sunspots for the period.

But mostly it is the lack of virgins.

Aliens?

All of a sudden, we're within the brink of nuclear war, and a series of hurricanes distract the ever-loving fark out of the US, and solar flares take out North Korea's ability to launch. 

Aliens!
