    So, we all got a free X-ray... Gotta wonder how many times this has happened in the past, but no one had any way of knowing it?

    Not a killshot if it don't hit.

    The interesting question is WHY ARE WE SO LUCKY?
    These things fling off the back side fairly frequently...I've seen more than a couple
    since I started tracking space weather....when I met Ben from S0 I asked him that exact question...
    His eyes lit up and we chatted for a couple minutes aboot it with the group....
    Nobody can explain or even give a good theory as to why the big ejecta never seems to come our way...

    Oh, you brought up divine intervention with Ben but you failed to chat about the importance of the Moon like I asked? Really?

    Yeah, seriously though -I think it's a very cool thought. Then again, maybe the odds of a kill shot actually hitting the Earth isn't as likely as it may seem. We've had many near misses that have come our way since the electric grid went live in the early 1900's, and I do believe a few instances pretty close to that time when some wires got fried, perhaps telegraph wires, but meh. I never really researched the topic much to include electricity in the late 1800's since there were so many variances with how electricity was first transmitted and the problems many had. To think of how much it was a luxury back then and the exorbitant rates that were charged, along with the competing companies each vying to tie everybody in to a grid. Still, it may take a while for a solar kill shot to actually cause significant damage. It's only been a little over 100 years, man! In the life span of our star, that's not even a blink of an eye! The solar storm of 1859 is speculated to have possibly been a kill shot, but we weren't tied into an electric grid at the time, and the same applies to the 1882 and 1921 solar activity as well for the most part.

    Key years with reported solar CME influence (that I can find) - 1859, 1882, 1921, 1989, 2000, 2003, 2012

    It's not a question of "if", but "when". No divine speculation is even needed.

    Yep, that's a fact. Why are we so lucky so far is another question, but take a second and consider this: If you imagine the sun at the center of a sphere with a radius of the earth's orbit, the surface area of that sphere is a BIG number. The earth occupies a rather small cross section of that area, leaving a lot of space to miss with random shots. Even blunderbuss scattering as a large CME does is far more apt to miss entirely than hit. Take enough shots, and one will hit; I'm sure that in geologic time scales, there have been hits. Some neanderthal is apt to have collected an unexplained sunburn. Odds? Bet against, but be ready to lose.

    Always do....what did you catch that I missed?
    The way the earth facing filament didn't let loose any ejecta?
    You think the delta class exiting to chuck a kill shot once it's not earth facing?
    I watched it again just now trying to figure out what you might be eluding to?
