Did you feel the full-on, amazing proton flux event on May 8? As we approach Solar Maximum, geomagnetic storms and solar flares are more common so we’re becoming accustomed to a buzzier atmosphere but this was different.
FYI: the most recent Solar Maximum was in 2014 – I was in love and didn’t know a thing about Space Weather so perhaps I was misattributing the buzz.
Anyway, the May 8 phenom occurred between 11.00 – 14:00 Universal Time and while it is associated with a high solar wind, the actual event is known as a “Polar Cap Absorption Event”- see below.
I didn’t know any of this at the time yet I was suddenly elated and aware of something I can only describe as cosmic consciousness, along with a newly vivid appreciation of music. Ophiuchus had just risen and the Sun was conjunct plus parallel Uranus but even so, it was remarkable.
Later I checked out the Space Weather and voila! Of course it could have been down to many factors but the timing was bang on. It may also have been a rise in Schumann Resonance but it’s difficult to get info re this as the scientific data does not call it Schumann Resonance, as such.
Solar storms are usually agitating and inspirational but unsettling, this was different. If I could have paused it, I would have.
Could it have been from the proton flux en route to the South Pole (not implausible, it travels along magnetic lines) temporarily absorbing all the low-frequencies/shortwave radio/electro-pollution?
Did you feel anything unique, amazing and/or off algorithm on May 8?
