7 March 2012 Last updated at 16:12 ET Help A pair of scorching explosions on the Sun's surface is sparking the biggest magnetic storm the Earth has experienced in five years.

Images of this region show a complex network of sunspots indicating a large amount of stored magnetic energy.

The storm may disrupt power grids, GPS systems and satellites, and has already forced some airlines to change their routes around the polar regions.

All this activity means there is a good chance of seeing the northern lights at higher latitudes, if the skies are clear. It may be possible to see them in the UK on Thursday night.
Other solar magnetic storms have been observed in recent decades. One huge solar flare in 1972 cut off long-distance telephone communication in the midwestern state of Illinois.

The Earth is currently being battered by a storm of charged particles from the Sun, which could disrupt power grids, satellite navigation and plane routes.

The storm was triggered by a pair of solar flares - the largest of their kind - earlier this week.

The effects will be most intense in polar regions, and aircraft may be advised to change their routings to avoid these areas.

Paul Cally, a professor of solar physics at Monash University in Australia, explains why.

The Earth is currently being battered by a storm of charged particles from the Sun, which could disrupt power grids, satellite navigation and plane routes.

The storm - the largest in five years - will bombard the Earth's magnetic field throughout Thursday.

It was triggered by a pair of solar flares - the largest of their kind - earlier this week.

As a result, the Northern Lights may be visible at lower latitudes.

The effects will be most intense in polar regions, and aircraft may be advised to change their routings to avoid these areas.

SOLAR STORMS
 
The sudden release of magnetic energy stored in the Sun's atmosphere can cause a bright flare. This can also release bursts of charged particles into space.
These solar "eruptions" are known as coronal mass ejections, or CMEs
When headed in our direction, the charged gas collides with the magnetic "sheath" around Earth.  The subsequent disturbances in the Earth's magnetic envelope are called solar storms
They can interfere with technology: satellites, electrical grids and communications systems.
They can also cause aurorae - northern and southern lights - to be seen at lower latitudes

In the UK, the best chance to see them will be on Thursday night, the British Geological Survey says.

The Sun's activity rises and falls through an 11-year cycle, and has in recent months been seen to launch more of the solar flares that are causing the current storm.

The cycle is due to peak in 2013.

The flares have resulted in what is known as a coronal mass ejection, "the technical term for what is really just a big ball of gas travelling at 2,000 kilometres per second", according to Doug Biesiecker from the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (Noaa).

The incoming cloud of charged particles could affect satellites and will launch a geomagnetic storm in the Earth's protective magnetic field, Mr Beisiecker told the BBC.

"This magnetic field keeps harmful radiation out. Now, the geomagnetic storm isn't going to take that magnetic field away from the Earth, but... it's going to shake it.

"And if you shake a magnetic field you generate things like electric currents in the atmosphere and say, in the power grid that criss-crosses pretty much every country on the planet now."

A Solar "Super Storm" is Coming and We Will Only Get a 30 Minute Warning!

(ARTICLE from the UK, "The Independent" dated 1/7/13)
A solar "superstorm" could knock out Earth's communications satellites, cause dangerous power surges in the national grid and disrupt crucial navigation aids and aircraft avionics, a major report has found.
 

It is inevitable that an extreme solar storm – caused by the Sun ejecting billions of tonnes of highly-energetic matter travelling at a million miles an hour – will hit the Earth at some time in the near future, but it is impossible to predict more than about 30 minutes before it actually happens, a team of engineers has warned.

Solar superstorms are estimated to occur once every 100 or 200 years, with the last one hitting the Earth in 1859.

Although none has occurred in the space age, we are far more vulnerable now than a century ago because of the ubiquity of modern electronics, they said.

"The general consensus is that a solar superstorm is inevitable, a matter not of 'if' but 'when?'," says a report into extreme space weather by a group of experts at the Royal Academy of Engineering in London.

In the past half century, there have been a number of "near misses" when an explosive "coronal mass ejection" of energetic matter from the Sun has been flung into space, narrowly bypassing the Earth.

In 1989 a relatively minor solar storm knocked out several key electrical transformers in the Canadian national grid, causing major power blackouts.

Similar solar storms significantly increased atmospheric radiation levels in 1956, 1972, 1989 and 2003, the experts found.

Professor Paul Cannon, who chaired the academy's working group on solar storms, said that the Government should set up a space weather board to oversee measures aimed at minimising the impact of solar storms.

"A solar superstorm will be a challenge but not cataclysmic. The two challenges for government are the wide spectrum of technologies affected today and the emergence of unexpected vulnerabilities as technology evolves," he said.

"Our message is, 'Don't panic, but do prepare'. A solar superstorm will happen one day and we need to be ready for it.

"Many steps have already been taken to minimise the impact of solar storms on current technology… We anticipate that the UK can further minimise the impact," he added.

Minor solar storms hit the Earth on a regular basis, but these are far less powerful than the 1859 event named after the British astronomer Richard Carrington, which was the last true solar superstorm.

A similar event today would put severe strain the electricity grid, where transformers are particular vulnerable to power surges, as well as degrading the performance of satellites, GPS navigation, aviation and possibly the mobile phone network, particularly the new 4G network, which relies on GPS satellites for timing information.

"Satellites are certainly in the front line of a superstorm. They are part of our infrastructure and we have concerns about their survival in a solar superstorm," said Keith Ryden, a space engineer at Surrey University.

Enlightenme, thanks for posting that article...I had missed that...
Also here is one occurrence, I don't think I posted in 2012.

White cliffs of Dover suffer large collapse

15 March 2012 Last updated at 12:12 ET Help A large section of the white cliffs of Dover has collapsed into the English Channel between Langdon Cliffs and South Foreland Lighthouse.

Dover Coastguard say no-one was injured when tonnes of rock collapsed into the sea in the area known locally as Crab Bay.

It is thought freezing conditions over the winter may have weakened the chalk and flint cliffs.

Britain hit by second earthquake as 3.8 magnitude tremor hits East Midlands
A second earthquake in two days has struck the UK.

The latest earthquake, measuring 3.8 on the Richter scale, hit the East Midlands village of Cottesmore, in Rutland,at 10.25pm last night, according to the US Geological Survey.

It came after an earthquake with a magnitude of 2.9 was recorded in Winchester on Tuesday.

Residents took to Twitter to tell of their shock after realising an earthquake had struck.

Sally Smart wrote: ‘Earthquake wow that was a biggen!! Thought a truck was coming through the house #adrenalinepumping.’

A man called Ben wrote: ‘How was there an earthquake in England? It’s the end of the world.’

Another called Dirk wrote: ‘Meanwhile on Facebook, people from my village, where the earthquake barely hit, are making sure they’re all okay and prepared for the worst.’
Others posted photographs of framed pictures hanging on the walls slightly askew to show the aftermath of the earthquake.

The British Geological Survey (BGS) said: ‘Just looking into reports of a possible earthquake in the Leics/Rutland area. Watch this space.’

It comes after an earthquake hit Winchester on Tuesday with police receiving reports of something which ‘felt like an explosion which shook their houses’.

The quake is believed to have hit the Hampshire town at about 6.30pm at a depth of three kilometres, according to the BGS website.

A police spokesman said that no explanation or cause for the shaking could be found and no injuries had been reported.

The BGS said it had received a report from a residents who said ‘the whole bed was visibly shaking’ as well as one who said the earthquake sounded ‘like a bus’ crashing ‘into the neighbours house at speed’.

Another told the BGS: ‘At least five other households ran outside to make sense of what had shook the houses.’
