Signs in the Sun & Latest Earth Changes
Signs that the mini ice age / grand solar minimum has already started
With Total Solar Irradiance (TSI) decreasing, galactic cosmic rays increasing causing more cloud cover globally and measurable decreases in output of our Sun, it is apparent that the new mini ice age / grand solar minimum has commenced.
We need to look to the Electric Sun model to explain the changes and begin the discussion of how we as species are going to adapt to the changes that repeat every 400 years.
The volcanic urest continues and spread across the world.
Reports of volcanic eruptions of Etna (Italy), Kambalny (Russia), Turrialba (Costa Rica), Klyuchevskoy (Russia), Anak Krakatau (Indonesia), Nevado del Ruiz (Colombia), Sabancaya (Peru), Bayonnaise Rocks (Japan) in the last few days.
Rivers of lava flow onto slopes of Mount Etna after eruption
Lava can still be seen flowing onto the slopes of Mount Etna, more than one week after the Italian volcano dramatically erupted as shown in the video above filmed on March 28, 2017.
Ten people were injured in the latest violent phreatic-magmatic eruption on March 16.
The explosive eruption of the Kambalny volcano continuesThe explosive eruption of the volcano continues. Ash explosions up to 19,700-26,200 ft (6-8 km) a.s.l. could occur at any time. Ongoing activity could affect international and low-flying aircraft.
This is the first serious volcanic event at Kambalny in the modern history of scientific observations. According to researchers, a strong eruption occurred 600 years ago. There is information about its increased activity about 250 years ago.
For now it is unclear about a lava outflow and whether the volcano will continue its activity or not. The most interesting and – at the same time – the most difficult for research is that the volcano did not erupt in historical time. That is, it was silent for several hundred years, woke up and now we can just observe how it behaves.
Intensification of volcanic activity at Turrialba volcano – sudden explosions on March 29, 2017.The volcano is emitting small plumes of of water vapor and diluted ash. Intense incandescence was reported over the last 2 nights over the crater.
Today morning an ash eruption occurred and is still going on now. The direction of the wind varies between the South and Southeast, carrying ash to places like La Pastora, Finca la Central and Turrialba Centro. Ashfall has been reported in Lajas de San Ramon in Turrialba, San Antonio in Santa Cruz de Turrialba and a smell of sulfur in Santa Teresita de Turrialba.
Eruption of Klyuchevskov volcano continuesGas-steam plume with some amount of ash extended 108 km to the east-north-east from the volcano. The explosive eruption of the volcano continues. Ash explosions up to 19,700-26,200 ft (6-8 km) a.s.l. could occur at any time. Ongoing activity could affect low-flying aircraft.
Update on the volcanic activity of Anak KrakatauAfter the eruption of the 17-18th February, activity at Anak Krakatau has remained the same, or has declined slightly. A steady degassing plume can be observed, however no eruptions were observed.
Lava-glow is not seen in the crater like was the case during February.
Nevado del Ruiz explodes in ColombiaEmissions of gases and ash from the summit of the Nevado del Ruiz volcano were observed on March 25. This emission was associated with a seismic signal related to the movement of fluids inside the volcano, recorded at 08:05 (local time).
The ash and gas column reached a maximum height of 1770 m above the top of the volcano and dispersed in the north-northwest direction.
Sabancaya volcano eplodes 37 times per day since last weekSince about a week, Sabancaya volcano explodes 37 times per day. However, the earthquakes associated with the rise of magma (hybrid) have decreased in number and in power.
During the last eruption, the column of gas and ash reached ~ 2700 meters above the crater, spreading over more than 40 km to the northwest, north and south.

The water in a reservoir in the southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau, Vietnam has turned purple and stinky overnight.
Residents are concerned about pollution. or could it be a rapid growth of algae?
The 10-hectare (25-acre) reservoir, which stands next to a group of seafood processing factories, is linked to ditches and the downstream of the Cha Va River, home to hundreds of fish farms.
In recent years, Vietnamese people have become increasingly wary of pollutions driven by production expansion as the seafood industry seeks to catch up with overseas fast-growing demand for shrimp and fish.
The reservoir turns purple anytime the processors discharge wastewater. And according to residents, it’s been like that for many years and the authorities have not really done anything to stop it. The concerns of the locals are compounded as children in the area also fall sick regularly.
Officials know the problem with the waste discharge but are not handling. They now have to close the reservoir to treat the water and sediment.
Everyday, enhanced volcanic activity is reported around the world with new eruptions or signs of impending blasts.
Today, it seems that the Hekla volcano shows signs of imminent eruption in Iceland. Moreover the Fuego volcano is exploding at least 7 times an hour since more than a week in Guatemala.
Hekla volcano shows signs of imminent eruption in IcelandMost measurements that we have today indicate that Hekla is ready for an eruption, but we do not know what factor will set the eruption off,” says geophysicist Páll Einarsson at the University of Iceland.
There is more pressure in the magma chambers underneath the mountain than before the last two eruptions in 1991 and 2000.
It’s however impossible to say whether a Hekla eruption is to be expected soon or not, as eruptions come without much warning and with little correlation to other volcanic or earthquake activities in South Iceland.
According to geophysicist Páll Einarsson, four of Iceland’s volcanoes are showing increased amounts of activity in preparation for another eruption:
Fuego volcano explodes 7 times an hour in the last days in GuatemalaDuring last week, the explosions at Fuego volcano increase in energy. The volcano observatory of Guatemala reports an average of 7 to 13 explosions per hour, which have low to moderate characteristics. They generate columns of ash reaching a height of about 4,300 to 4,700 m (14,107 to 15,419 feet), which travel more than 10 kilometers in a southerly and southeasterly direction.
Incandescent pulses at a height of 150-300 meters above the crater generate falls of volcanic materials of different sizes, reaching distances of more than 200 m from the crater and weak to moderate avalanches on the crater’s outline .
These explosions are accompanied by weak, moderate and strong rumblings that have weak to moderate shock waves, causing vibrations on the roofs of houses near the volcano. Weak sounds, similar to train locomotive machines, with intervals of 10 minutes are reported. The rumblings are heard in the volcanic perimeter and in the municipalities of Escuintla, Santa Lucia Cotz., Siquinalá among others.
According to the observations, the seismic energy of the explosions continues, with the possibility that in the next hours lava flows will be generated and a new strombolian eruptive phase will develop.
The volcanic unrest is continuous and will never stop. Where in the next to erupt. Nobody knows. But get ready!

"Crazy, right? I'm driving and it was right in front of my car. It just came right across the road," the Haverstraw resident said. "It was just an amazing thing to see."
After some investigation, and a call to Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in Palisades, Connolly learned that it was, in fact, a meteor.
The object Connolly perceived as a fireball traveling across Route 9W at about 6:20 a.m. was seen across the Northeast, according to an online event log maintained by the American Meteor Society. There were 34 sightings from as far away as Michigan and Ontario that were logged by the AMS.
Connolly said the meteor "dissipated" as it crossed the road but, in fact, that was a trick of the eye. What she perceived as directly in front of her car was quite a bit farther away.
"We looked into this, and discovered that a large meteor did light up in the atmosphere roughly between northern Lake Erie and Ottawa at this time," said Kevin Krajick, Lamont-Doherty's senior editor for science news. "It was seen from Michigan to Virginia."
It's not known if this particular meteor exploded in the atmosphere or made it to the ground to become a meteorite.
"Most of the shooting stars, the fireballs, the meteors, are so small that they don't survive to the earth's surface," said Lamont-Doherty director and planetary scientist Sean Solomon. "It could have been the size of a grain of sand and still be visible."
Terry Casscles of West Haverstraw was also driving to work just before 6:30 a.m. Wednesday morning when she saw what she described as "a flash of light and then, poof," just above the treeline.
She understood that the object might have been farther away than she perceived but was incredulous when told she had seen something over Canada.
"It probably could have been three or four miles away," she said.
"Distances of meteors can often be deceptive, especially when viewed near the horizon," Krajick said.
According to Solomon, it's largely a question of brightness.
"Seeing a fireball it's difficult to gauge the distance. Meteors can be seen for hundreds of miles," he said. "It's so bright, you have a tendency to think it's so close."
That being said, a close encounter with a meteor is not impossible.
Back in 1992, a football-sized space rock punched a hole through a Chevy Malibu owned by Peekskill resident Michelle Knapp.
That meteorite made its way to the Peekskill police station, where geologist Bill Menke, professor of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Columbia University, was called in to verify its origin.
"It was quite an exciting adventure that we had," Menke said, "visiting the sight of the strike, seeing the car with the hole through it."
Menke said the story of the so-called Peekskill Meteorite has taken on a life of its own, which he attributes to movies like "Deep Impact" and "Armageddon."
"In the last couple decades meteor strikes have garnered much more attention in the popular mind,"

Images of the event immediately started appearing on social networks, with people from the cities of Stockholm, Uppsala and Örebro all reported seeing the event. Reports from eastern Uppland mention sonic boom associated with the event.
"This is something that happens a few times a year," Eric Stempels of the Swedish Allsky Meteor Network project told The Local.
"Because it can happen during the day, when it is cloudy or far from populated areas, these events usually don't get much attention," he said, adding that this one fell in the north-eastern Uppland region.
Experts believe that this particular bolide may have been unusually large and Stempels estimated that it is possible it was between the size of a fist and a football.
