CME hits Earth's Magnetic Field


CME IMPACT: A coronal mass ejection (CME) hit Earth's magnetic field at 0617 UT on Jan. 22nd. At first the impact did not appear to be a strong one: the solar wind speed barely lifted itself to ~400 km/s when the CME passed by. Now, however, in the wake of the CME, a dense and increasingly geoeffective solar wind stream is blowing arround Earth, setting the stage for possible auroras on the night of Jan. 22nd.

... derived from the Equation of Time & the Declination of the Sun

Astronomical cycles such as the Mercury Cycles, the cycle of the star Sirius, the Lunar Cycles, the Earth/Sun Cycles and the Equation of Time (EOT) can be used for timing potential turn dates in the stock, forex and commodities markets.

Earth in Perigee = Jan 05 
EOT @ minimum  = −14 min 15 sec  = 11 February 
SPRING EQUINOX = March 20
EOT @ zero = 15 April
EOT @ maximum = +03 min 41 sec = 14 May
EOT @ zero  = 13 June
 
SUMMER SOLSTICE = June 20
Earth in Apogee  Jul 05
EOT @ minimum = −06 min 30 sec = 26 July
EOT @ zero = 1 September
 
FALL EQUINOX = September 22
EOT @ maximum = +16 min 25 sec = 3 November 
WINTER SOLSTICE = December 21
EOT @ zero = 25 December
