The Ion Plume

    Something strange is happening in the atmosphere above Africa and researchers have converged on Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, to discuss the phenomenon
    Researchers liken the plumes to smoke billowing out of a factory smokestack—except instead of ordinary ash and dust, ion plumes are made of electrified gas floating so high above ground they come in contact with space itself

    Having checked back the history on Space Weather (from Nov 18 - 22, 2003), you'll notice some intense CME's were apparent. Play about with the dates: http://www.spaceweather.com/archive.php?mo...3&view=view [RHS]

    Three weeks or so previously, one of the sunspots [after a full rotation of the Sun for the Nov 18-22 event] emitted an X28 flare..one of the biggest known.

    Fascinating read.

    Edit: Have posted this in the wrong section..sorry..could a mod be able to move this to the space WX section?..ta :whistling:

    I think the more we learn about our 'electric/magnetic' planet the more I'm caused to wonder about the subtle variations in the EMF that are around us every day and the impact they may have on the functioning of our own 'electromagnetic systems' (especially the brain).

    We know from testing that certain 'frequencies/intensities' of field can bring about mental aberrations and 'visions/euphoria' so how do the low level fluctuations in the Earths EMF impact upon our own 'sense of self'?

    Interesting question.

    Do these plumes reach ground level though?

    Truth be known we have always had these plumes and they happen more often than we think. Its only recently we have had GPS which seems to be what they have used to detect the plumes.
