Solar flare hurls plasma bomb causing shortwave radio blackout in eastern Australia and all of New Zealand


The young Solar Cycle 25 starts pretty explosively!

After sunspot 2781, beginning of the month, Sunspot AR2785 exploded on November 23, at 23:35 UTC, producing a C4-class solar flare.

The solar blast hurled a 250,000 km long plume of plasma across the sun as shown in the GIF below.

Sunspot AR2785 erupted during the late hours of Nov. 23rd (2335 UT), producing a C4-class solar flare.

UV radiation from the flare hit Earth, causing a shortwave radio blackout (frequencies mainly below 10 MHz) over the South Pacific, including eastern Australia and all of New Zealand.

Meanwhile, three of the biggest sunspots of young Solar Cycle 25 (AR2783, AR2785, AR2786) are either facing Earth or turning in our direction. They could become a source of geoeffective flares in the next few days.

All these sunspots pose a threat for C-class flares, with a slight chance of even stronger M-flares. So be readyfor more blackouts! More extreme solar explosions on Space Weather, Strange Sounds and Steve Quayle.

  1. Sources reported that Israeli fighter jets targeted and bombed a vehicle carrying money sent by the Islamic Republic regime to Hezbollah in Lebanon in Syria on the evening of Wednesday, November 25, 2020.

    According to the report, the money was transferred by a passenger plane of the Islamic Republic to Damascus airport, and after the plane was transferred to several vehicles to Hezbollah to Lebanon, Israeli fighters bombed the vehicles.

    Hours before the reports were released, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that eight militants affiliated with the Islamic Republic had been killed in a nighttime bombing by Israeli fighter jets in Syria.

    According to AFP, Rami Abdul Rahman, director of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said the dead had non-Syrian citizenship but it was not yet clear which country they were from.

    According to Al-Arabiya; The militants were killed after Israeli fighters targeted an ammunition depot belonging to forces of the Islamic Republic and Lebanese Hezbollah in the Jabal Mana area on the southern outskirts of Damascus. The attacks also included positions of forces affiliated with the Islamic Republic regime on the outskirts of Qantira.

    Sorry Strange Sounds news will get hotter every day in North America and Wolrd.

    Watch: F-35 Stealth Fighter Drops Mock Nuclear Bomb Over Nevada Desert
    We recently highlighted the possibility that the US and China “may well be on the road to war, and nuclear war is no longer unthinkable.” For years, we’ve discussed the relentless quest of Washington elites, preparing the empire for the inevitable collision with China as the battle for economic supremacy nears.

    The rapid modernization of the military under the Trump administration, costing taxpayers $2 trillion, was an important signal in gauging Washington Warhawks’ level of military preparedness as the threat of rising China increases by the day.

    President Trump has described the trillions of dollars allocated to the military as a “colossal rebuilding” effort – something he says has ‘never been done before.’ Trump has routinely described all sorts of new military technology, including fifth-generation stealth jets, hypersonic missiles, and increased nuclear weapon capability.

    While dangers of confrontation have increased in 2020 as US warships continue to sail through the South China Sea, or Chinese warplanes buzz Taiwan’s airspace – Trump is still president for 57 days, meaning that anything is possible in the next two months.

    In a show of force, the Air Force released a video Monday showing a Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II dropping a mock nuclear bomb at Sandia National Laboratories’ Tonopah Test Range over the Nevada desert.

    “We’re showing the B61-12’s larger compatibility and broader versatility for the country’s nuclear deterrent, and we’re doing it in the world of COVID-19,” said Steven Samuels, a manager with Sandia’s B61-12 Systems Team.
    Samuels said, “We’re not slowing down. We’re still moving forward with the B61-12 compatibility activities on different platforms.”

    We noted in June that another F-35 dropped a mock nuclear bomb at a test range in the California desert.

    In 2018, the Pentagon upgraded its B61 nuclear gravity bombs, a move that would increase the lifespan for decades.

    “The upgraded, B61-12 LEP will replace all of the bomb’s nuclear and non‐nuclear components for another two decades, and improve the bomb’s safety, effectiveness, and security. This life extension program will address all age-related issues of the weapon, and enhance its reliability, field maintenance, safety, and use control,” the National Nuclear Security Administration said in a tear off sheet.
