The Aurora Borealis was seen this week as far south as Arkansas.
Earth is changing. The sun rises farther to the north lately and sets oddly as well. Watch in the morning and note where it is compared to where it used to be.
Birds and fish are dying enmasse. The latest round of deaths was just this month.
Volcanos are awakening and one is even inflating while scientists watch! Earthquakes and storms are increasingly more violent. Now, the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis is being seen much farther south than it should. This week it was seen as far south as Arkansas in the USA.
When it moves, it is a warning sign that earth's protective magnetosphere is weakening.
Earth's most impressive and very huge CME's were in 1859.
On September 1–2, 1859, the largest recorded geomagnetic storm occurred. Aurorae were seen around the world, most notably over the Caribbean ; also noteworthy were those over the Rocky Mountains that were so bright that their glow awoke gold miners, who began preparing breakfast because they thought it was morning. According to professor Daniel Baker of the University of Colorado's Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics people in the northeastern U.S. could read newspaper print just from the light of the aurora.
Telegraph systems all over Europe and North America failed, in some cases even shocking telegraph operators. Telegraph pylons threw sparks and telegraph paper spontaneously caught fire. Some telegraph systems appeared to continue to send and receive messages despite having been disconnected from their power supplies.
Electricity and power grids have far surpassed those of 1859 and the entire world is almost totally dependent on them.

Every 11 years the sun shoots off two or three CME's (coronal mass ejections) per day, the result of huge solar storms. This is a solar maximum which are capable of knocking out earth's entire power grid. Recovery could take years.
The next one is coming in 2012. If we are "sucker punched in the gut" as one scientist believes we will be, it could mean disaster for the world. If our power grids are destroyed by a substantial punch from a CME, things will be problematic to say the very least.
In 2007 we had a giant rip in the earth's magnetosphere that was ten times larger than scientists believed to be possible. It was breached by a punch from the sun. They attribute this to the flipping of the magnetic poles. As the magnetic poles change, the magnetosphere weakens. Evidence of magnetic pole shifts are seen at airports who have had to change markers to keep up.
When this occurs radiation is allowed to enter the world in greater amounts. Some are afraid that the magnetosphere is weakening. And with the reversal of poles, magnetic poles that is, things could become quite interesting. It could make life nasty because then when earth is hit by solar particles, they will penetrate much deeper creating nitrates that will eat the ozone. Each solar punch would rip it to shreds and then we will be living inside permanently for fear of radiation burns and cancer. It would be awful.
Plants would die, plankton would die , oceans would die, birds could not migrate, famine would be worldwide and civilization would collapse.
Our magnetic poles have flipped before say the scientists to the detriment of everyone on earth, however.
So what does it mean if you see the Northern Lights farther south? It means the magnetosphere is weak and the charged particles are getting through not just at the Arctic but now much farther south.
The Aurora is created when charged particles from the sun hit the magnetosphere and become trapped. These charged particles from space get in because of weakened places in the protective magnetosphere around earth.
So, while the auroras are spectacular, they are not something you want to see coming farther south.
The previous video spoke of this beginning at around the 6:20 mark to about 13:00 or so , if you care to see that.
