Excerpts from 5MIN News December 12, 2013:
(3:13) So what about the flares you did see? They appear to be post-filament release flaring rather than causative flaring from Sunspot instability; take a point away from the Sunspots and hand it to the Earth-directed CMEs.
(3:26) It's early, but with Earth off to the left here on Stereo A we do have a good chance of getting 'glancing blows' or up to maybe a moderate Magnetic Storm.
(3:34) As for the Quakes: everyday that I am ready to raise the 'Watch Score' over 7, the power either drops off or the fields shift around, like here. We're also missing 16 hours of yesterday's fields and no, didn't raise the 'Watch Score' last night either.
(3:48) Let's get shots of our Star to close, including the IRIS rasters. Eyes open, no fear. It's 6:45 A.M. Eastern Time and that's the news. Be safe everyone.
(0:52) That's interesting…Let's get a little more complex…
Lets talk about the Space Weather...

(0:01) Hey folks, lets do a quick review of some Comet ISON Facts. We'll start at the JPL Orbital Diagram for C/2012 S1 ISON; it is currently inside of one AU (Earth's Distance from the Sun, at the white circle).
(0:16) Tilting to show the trajectory of the Comet from the Orbital Plane of Earth. You can see this Comet has a significant incline up-and-out of the system after it's fairly flat arrival.
(0:27) Now the first worry with Comet ISON was about meteors, because of how shallow the in-coming trajectory of the Comet comes in any break-up before it got to Earth's position could have left large chunks in our path, but, it just didn't happen and a dusting light show is probably the most we will see.
(0:45) But well before that, we will watch Comet ISON plunge towards the Sun. Here is the main concern at this time: despite the fervent denials of any connection between Comets and Solar Flaring by NASA and other experts, tens of thousands watching here every day and many more across the world watch Sun-diving Comet induce major flaring one after another; we'll discuss this more in a few minutes.
(0:02) Good morning folks, two huge stories today so lets blow through some quick updates.
(0:07) Drought Zone continues to appear abated in the Southwest with the flooding they took there last two week.
(0:12) Curiosity Team declares 2% water found in the Martian soil, with oxygen, CO2 and sulphur gases released by thermal induction. We've measured a ton of water from space on that planet and we did indeed expect that news eventually.
(0:26) The Telica Volcano in Nicaragua erupted this morning; pretty startling for the locals.
(0:31) The US convergence today hopefully won't dump snow like it did last night, but we could see strong storms leading the pressure cell.
(0:38) Sunspots in tandem crossing the Sun with the mixing up North, but it is separating as the umbras grow; we need some luck as flares are still on the floor and it does appear the solar wind is gonna join them down there.
(0:01) EARTHQUAKES - Earthquakes are not entirely random events. If you look at the big quakes, 6 magnitude and larger, patterns begin to emerge. Many things cause Earthquakes, and this makes "perfect prediction" impossible, but over time the upticks and quiet times can be matched with cosmic factors.
(0:20) I want to show you something…
