Important space and weather related evetns of 2018!

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

1. The most important event perhaps is the emergence of a sunspot with reverse polarity in august 2018



Sunspot AR 2720. This heralds the transition to solar cycle 25 and this is important because sunspot activity determines whether our planet becomes geomagnetic active or not.

Solar wind energizes our planet while it does that it causes earthquakes, strenghtens and create new hurricanes and storms around the globe, it causes volcanic activity, and many other upheavals like tornadoes and extreme weather for example. 

But the most profound effect is heating of our planet, yes the rise in global temperatures is entirely attributed to sunspot activity. In fact since we entered the solar minimum of solar cycle 24 temperatures have dropped dramatically on a global scale almost to cause global temperature anomaly maps to go negative! 

What worries me the most is all the predictions (psychic predictions) of a sudden rise in solar activity at some point: perhaps the sun is about to enter an active phase. Space weather has been quasi non existent in this quiet period of solar cycle 24 but this could perhaps change with solar cycle 25.

2. Another important aspect of our sun is 21 december 2018!


Because this might be the real 2012 Mayan calendar date and by this I don’t imply that the world is going to end.

In my opinion it is a date of transition of our solar system: it is going to be subject to something or nothing at all. Perhaps the emergence of a bright star in the night sky or luminosity caused by the wave of a distant supernova. 

This would indeed cause our sun to suddenly increase in activity and thus cause natural upheavals as consequence, but nothing as dramatic as the much hyped Hollywood movie from 2012 which is utter nonsense. 

Such destruction can only be caused by a galactic super wave as mentioned in the work of Paul la Violette but that sort of event happens once every 12000 years so no worries about that. 

Anyway this is an important date well at least if I’m correct, I say this because I have no evidence whether 2018 is the correct date. I read once a detailed article about the Mayan calendar which was based on facts, in that article they stated the real date was off by six years! (2012 + 6 = 2018)

So maybe it’s true and then again maybe not, you should not concern yourselves with this too much, if you see this winter a glow appearing in the sky well then you know what caused it… 

I think if 2018 is the real 2012 there will be some sort of celestial event but not something that causes the “end of the world” something akin to strange aurora’s perhaps. 


3. Another notable event that took place in 2018 was the position of the planets in our solar system: they were all on one side of our sun!

This is indeed very peculiar and important because planetary alignments are believed to create torque in our sun’s inner belt which determines the activity of future solar cycles…

So perhaps this not important immediately, still it might herald a new period of increased solar activity in the coming years! (perhaps an active solar cycle 25?) 


4. A strange aurora like light Called STEVE (Strong Thermal Emission Velocity Enhancement) 

This is not really an important event just the discovery of a sky glow that is not attributed to auroras nor have the same mechanism.

 It’s interesting to see a celestial event that has been photographed while scientists know very little if nothing at all about it.


This new phenomenon produces thin, bright ribbons of green, white, and purple lights that appear only a few times a year and appear much closer to the equator. 

While auroras are caused by charged particles raining down the ionosphere no such particles have been detected with the STEVE sky glow phenomenon! So essentially the energy that causes this sky glow comes from somewhere else: a different mechanism which is currently unknown to scientists. 

This shows that outer space is still full of mysteries and that new discoveries are bound to happen. 


5. Let’s take a look at our own planet now, one important event is the appearance of the Wedell polynya in Antarctica.

A polynya is a large ice-free area in otherwise frozen ice sea, these polynya’s occur regularly in the coastal regions of the Arctic and Antarctica. 

They play an important role in the formation of sea ice and deep water, in the open ocean however they are a rare phenomenon. In fact so rare that the well known Wedell polynya has only been observed once in the mid 1970′s.


Now 40 years later this phenomenon shows up again, it’s recurrence hints about a deep layer of warm water sitting below colder fresher surface layer waters. The polynya acts as a pressure valve so to speak: it releases latent heat to the surface causing the ice to melt. 

Why is this important, after all the polynya is a well understood phenomenon (at least that’s what they say in the scientific community). Well it shows that despite Antarctica having a large surface area of ice there is latent heat underneath all that ice. 

In fact I have read an article that states that the growth in surface ice in Antarctica is caused by the warm water underneath it which prevents that super cold water to descend as it should, to contribute to the creation of deep water. 

In other words it acts as a lid for that cold surface water which cannot descend anymore to the bottom as it should be! So in essence all the ice in Antarctica amounts to an illusion since there is a vast pool of warm water just underneath the surface layers. 

To put it bluntly Antarctica might experience a sudden loss of ice in the coming years or decades and by that I mean significant areas or volumes of ice! But this is only speculation and my own opinion. 

Still I’m shocked to see that little importance has been attributed to this event: a few articles at most, this is truly outrageous. 


6. Since we are talking about the Arctic and Antarctic regions there is another event I want to point out: the emergence of ice free zones north of Greenland for the first time since human recording began!

This is a major event because north of Greenland lies the oldest and thickest ice of the Arctic, in fact that thick ice always survived the summer melt period until this year!

This is undoubtedly proof that the Arctic ice is disappearing at an alarming rate, in fact for years I have been looking at the Arctic development by watching charts about sea ice thickness and sea ice area.

What I concluded (and it’s actually quiet obvious) is that the loss of ice is not recovered, the ice thickness keeps dropping year after year. 

So even if the Arctic is covered again by ice it’s thinner less compact which is prone to melt more easier in summer periods. 

I also think that the quality of that ice is going down, dark particles of ash caused by forest fires in the past in the northern regions of the US (carried by wind and deposited on the ice) might have facilitated the absorption of sunlight in the ice in summer for example… 

Anyway this event shows that we are ever closer to an ice free Arctic region in the summer periods of the coming years. In fact some predict this to happen within 2 or 3 decades but in my opinion it won’t take that long anymore …
