Solar Shock Wave Events

NEW: Jan 29, 2002 Markets fall due to rare Solar Shock Wave

Solar Shock Wave Event Dec. 18, 1995 The Jupiter Event is expected to have caused the world markets to plunge due to the Solar Shock Wave from Jupiter hitting the Earths atmosphere and increasing the surface negative ion ratio. The Dow had one of the largest drops in years of almost 2%. The Stock charts called the drop a double head and shoulders (not matching the constant progress). The market analysts called it a needed correction to the increasing market.


 Solar Shock Wave Event Jan. 24, 2000 The Neptune Event is expected to be the cause of the world markets dropping above and beyond of the forecasted Ion Ratio for Jan. 24th. The Dow Jones dropped 243.54 or over 2%. According to the Province Newspaper, Jan 25, 2000 p.A32 "The reasons for yesterday's abrupt declines weren't clear. Some analysts pointed to anxiety over interest rates; others sited lack of confidence in corporate profits."


The Jupiter Shock Wave Event of Dec. 18, 1995: The above movie shows the event from the perspective of someone in New York beginning at 7:30 am EST (3:30 pm Universal time) and ending 11 hours later at 6:30 pm EST. Notice the skimming of Jupiter on horizon of the Sun. This skimming is when the maximum Solar Shock Wave from Jupiter is hitting the Earth. 


The Neptune Event of Jan. 24, 2000 is slightly different from the Jupiter Event of 1995. The Movie begins at 5:30 am EST (1:30 pm Universal time) again from the perspective of someone in New York. By the time the markets open in New York at 9:30 am, Neptune is behind the horizon of the Sun. It is only at 1:38 pm EST that Neptune is apparent on the Horizon of the Sun. It is at this time that all Markets show the large abnormal drop as seen in this Nasdaq graph. This coincides with the expected Solar Shock Wave rebounding from Neptune. With the volatile market of late, this event was not as noticeable as the Jupiter event, in which we had a considerable drop over the norm. 


Now that the Solar Shock Wave has again shown a large effect, future Ion Ratio Forecasts will take this into account considerably improving the ability to forecast accurately.

Background information on the Solar Shock Wave:

In a paper I wrote July 11, 1996 the following information was given:

On December 18, 1995 the Sun was going to pass very close to the position of Jupiter. I knew that Jupiter radiates twice as much energy as it receives from the Sun and that this factor may show this antenna effect I was theorizing. The Dow Jones Industrial plunged -101.52 or -1.96% of the total market. All other world markets also plunged that day. The biggest drops in years. The market analysts called it a needed correction to the increasing market. Why do hundreds of thousands of people all decide one day to sell on a whim? The Stock charts called the drop a double head and shoulders (not matching the constant progress)...The Sun only passes most planets one time per year. Again the proximity of the planet location to the Suns orbit can show a difference in the effect from year to year.

On Oct 19, 1996 I ran across a scientific explanation for this Jupiter effect:

A planet passing on the other side of the Sun from the Earths perspective will cause changes in our bio systems. The answer to the cause may lay in the SOLAR SHOCK WAVE.

The following information comes from an article in the Geophysical Research Letters, Dec. 1990, by Craig T. Russell of the University of California, Los Angeles.

The Sun produces a continuous outpouring of electrically charged particles called the Solar Wind. As the Solar Wind Collides with the magnetic field of a planet, it creates a shock wave on the sunward side. This triggers the emission of radio waves that radiate back towards the sun. The widths of the arc shaped shock waves that spawn the radio signals from the planets vary widely depending on which planet the shock wave originated from, though the signals from all the planets are quite similar. This information comes from new analysis of spacecraft data more then 15 years old.

The size of the planet and the size of the electromagnetic field will determine the size of the shock wave produced. In the case of the Earth, the shock wave is about ten times the diameter of the planet. The shock wave from Mercury is 5 percent that of the Earth's, this is due to the weaker magnetic field of Mercury and the smaller size of the planet. Venus nearly the same diameter of the Earth, derives it's weak magnetic field from the collision of the solar wind with the upper atmosphere. The shock wave from Venus is only 10 percent as wide as the Earth's. (Only Mercury, Venus, and Earth are referred to in this report. We must assume that the outer planets with their much stronger electromagnetic fields and larger size spawn similar shock waves with possibly larger signals. g.c.)

Sunward - radiating radio waves spawned by these vastly different-sized shock waves share a number of common properties, the space physicists found. For instance all radiate at extremely low frequencies--about 1 to 3 cycles per second. They also leave the shock wave around each planet at approximately the same range of angles. And the amplitudes or strengths of the radio signals--which naturally decrease with distance--appear comparable when measured at about the same distance from their source.

The new analysis also appears to have answered a long-standing question about which type of solar wind particles trigger the radio waves: negatively charged electrons (negative ions) or positively charged particles such as protons (ionized hydrogen atoms).

Previous studies, including one by Russell himself, had suggested that the solar wind ions took a "left handed" spiral around the planetary magnetic field lines that captured them a sign that the ions were positively charged. But in the new report, Russell's team concluded that the spiraling only appeared left-handed owing to the spacecrafts' motion relative to the solar wind. By analyzing the spiral's direction with respect to the flowing solar wind, they have determined that it's actually right-handed, Russell says. This indicates the radio waves are really spawned by electrons (negatively charged ions), his team now reports.
