    GLOBAL ALERT: The Sun Magnetic Field Fully Reversed, Solar Maximum Already Here


    GLOBAL ALERT: The Sun Magnetic Field fully reversed, Solar Maximum already here.


    December 30, 2013 - Sun has 'flipped upside down' as new magnetic cycle begins


    The sun’s magnetic field has fully reversed its polarity, marking the midpoint of Solar Cycle 24, which will be completed in 11 years time


    Now, the magnetic fields will once again started moving in opposite directions to begin the completion of the 22 year long process which will culminate in the poles switching once again.


    "A reversal of the sun's magnetic field is, literally, a big event," said Nasa’s Dr. Tony Phillips.


    "The domain of the sun's magnetic influence (also known as the 'heliosphere') extends billions of kilometers beyond Pluto. Changes to the field's polarity ripple all the way out to the Voyager probes, on the doorstep of interstellar space."
