Galactic core still calm.

Swift X-ray Observations of the Galactic Center as of February 6th, 2015

Swift X-ray Observations of the Galactic Center as of February 6th, 2015

Swift is finally back online after a lapse of almost 3 months.  For what reason?  They do not say.  Things still look quiescent at the Galactic center as of February 6th.   The G2 cloud has long passed its pericenter andthere have been no signs of enhanced activity other than the brief spike around September 10th.  As I had predicted last year, no activity should be expected from the Galactic core due to the expected infall of gas and dust stripped off from the G2 cloud because the cosmic ray wind from the Galactic core is so strong that such gas and dust would be blown away from the core.  The only activity expected would be from bodies such as comets or planets tidally stripped off and slowing down sufficiently to fall into the core.  So far such infall events have not been observed.  This X-ray chart will be updated on an approximately monthly basis, unless there is an activity alert.

At this point the general consensus of astronomers is that the G2 cloud contains one star.  As stated before, the unanswered question is whether if the G2 cloud contains a star with a planetary system and if the Galactic core is able to tug comets or planets away from the parent star, whether hydrodrag effects of the core’s ion and cosmic ray wind will be sufficient to cause such bodies to spiral into the core and trigger energetic activity.  This possibility has been explored in the May 19th posting.  Currently, there is little chance that the G2 cloud system will trigger a superwave outburst.

Keep in mind that we should always be prepared for the occurrence of any unexpected space weather event.

    It seems that the Swift observed further X-rays. Aslo the ART-XC/SRG is noticing something. This is from august 9 & 18 2019. Is this an increase in activity or is it normal?

  2. Ava says:

    great blog I no longer buy The Sun newspaper here

  3. Bruce Katz says:

    Some of the Swift data has been updated. Though not complete, it appears as suspected, x-rays gone wild!

  4. Kurt Sarrica says:

    It looks like the much-anticipated uptick in galactic core activity from the G-2 cloud has finally materialized:

    • Jim Charles says:

      Does anyone know the latest on this? Unless I am missing something the Swift site has again been “down” for some time.

  5. David says:

    Dear Dr. LaViolette,

    Some good news and some bad news…

    The Good news is, it appears NASA is considering your SuperWave possibility is Happening NOW!!!

    “The new study reveals that Sagittarius A* (Sgr A* for short) has been producing one bright X-ray flare about every ten days. However, within the past year, there has been a ten-fold increase in the rate of bright flares from Sgr A*, at about one every day. This increase happened soon after the close approach to Sgr A* by a mysterious object called G2.”

    So perhaps you will become vindicated for your views.

    The Bad news, is sometimes it not good to be right.

    • Bruce says:

      Unless, and until, the reason for the missing data is provided, we cannot really know for sure. All science is suspect these days…

      • Kurt Sarrica says:

        Well, I know this suggestion would never get any traction among “serious” scientists, but as someone who knows that “psi” phenomena and remote viewing are indeed “real,” it might be worthwhile for us to conduct some of our own RV experiments to try to observe what is really going on inside the G2 cloud. I recall reading in one recent research paper that “the center of gravity of the G2 cloud at its periapsis passed the GC at five times the distance from Neptune to the Sun,” or roughly 150 AU. There may yet be a “dark companion star” inside the G2 cloud which has already been tidally stripped from the G2 cloud’s center of gravity. However, it may still take a couple years for such a dark companion star to accrete into Sgr A*. I recently heard remote viewing guru Maj. Ed Dames state that he believed that the impending “Killshot” catastrophe he has been predicting for the past 20+ years would be triggered by “something coming from the galactic center.” In the absence of
        totally reliable or trustworthy astronomical observations from mainstream science, it might be useful to give the Remote Viewers a shot at these questions: Is there a dark star plunging toward the GC? How far away is it from the GC, relativistically speaking? How fast is it heading toward the GC? The answers to these questions could give us an approximate time-frame for anticipating when the galactic core will become “active.”
        You may wonder why I wouldn’t just ask the remote viewer: “When will the galactic core explode?” The problem goes back to the thorny paradoxes generated by relying on an “instantaneous signal carrier” as “psi energy” appears to be. Remote viewers have been notoriously bad at predicting dates because the event they are viewing “happens when it happens,” without regard to the observer’s location in space and time. From an Earth-bound remote viewer’s perspective, the galactic core explosion produced by the G2 dark companion hitting Sgr A* would have happened some 23,000 YBP. This is not too helpful in setting a “future” date for the galactic superwave to arrive in our solar system. I would suggest anyone reading this comment who is of an inclination to give this RV experiment a try, please send your RV “observations” to Dr. LaViolette, who should hold off on posting all of these “observations” until he can gather an unbiased consensus from multiple remote viewers indicating how long it will take the dark companion to impact the GC. Or we can all just wait around twiddling our thumbs until the Swift team decides to throw us another observational bone.

        • Paul LaViolette says:

          Remote viewing sounds like a good idea. Who knows some object may be lurking around in close orbit of the GC.

  6. Bruce says:

    It could well be the science has once again been altered or omitted as it applies to the Swift monitoring program. While it was down, the x-rays may have gone wild. Despite several attempts to contact the program administrators by a few of us, it appears that no emails were ever returned. Another “scientific” cover-up? We’ll likely never know…

  7. Stephen Griffin says:

    Hey Paul, I few days ago I referenced GRB 20150131A coordinates RA 18:04:07 Dec -34:18:43 very near the Galactic center in a comment here. I just noticed another Gamma Ray Burst extremely near the direction of the aforementioned GRB, the newer is GRB 20150206B coordinates RA 18:04:04 Dec -34:19:03 … this may or may not be significant, but at a minimum seem interesting, any reply would be appreciated, thanks.

  8. Bruce says:

    After nearly three months of no data, the Swift SGR A* is back up. Are there other sources for that missing data, Paul?

    • Paul LaViolette says:

      I don’t believe anything happened during the missing data period. As you see the output of the Sgr A* region is back to the same baseline it had a year and a half ago.

      • Bruce says:

        I sent several emails to researcher Nathalie Degeneer during the outage, asking for commentary as to why the monitor was down. No replies. It makes you wonder… 😉

        • Paul LaViolette says:

          I didn’t get a reply from her either. Yes, it makes you wonder about her integrity as a scientist.

          • Bruce says:

            And also whether or not the site can be relied upon for accurate output. It would not be the first time that financial interests superseded honest scientific output.

          • Mary says:

            Thank you for emailing her regardless
            Dr. Paul. We all appreciate your efforts
            and your comment. Agreed.
            All the best,

  10. Stephen Griffin says:

    Did you see GRB 20150131A from the direction of the Galactic center; RA 18:04:07, Dec -34:18:43 ?

  11. Louis says:

    Scientists have recently confirmed through optical photographs that G2 is a binary star that collapsed into a single star. Dr. L was right again! When this happens, the star is enveloped in gas for about a million years. It is not unusual for a star to come so close to the galactic center (GC). A few stars orbit much closer to the GC on elliptical orbits. While some in falling gas from G2 might occasionally result in small burps from the galactic center, we probably have more to fear (in the near term) from more local stellar events.

    • Paul LaViolette says:

      That scientist’s theory is wrong. It is not correct that the star inside G2 was once a binary system and that it collapsed to form the present star. They only said this because it is over luminous for a star of that mass ~1 to 2 solar masses. They have no idea how it got so luminous and have suggested this rather outlandish binary star merger explanation, whose probability of occurring would be one chance in a billion. The reason why the star is over luminous is primarily because a) gravity potential effect of Sgr A* on its genic energy output and b) the high cosmic ray flux coming from Sgr A* and being absorbed by the star’s greatly expanded photosphere. For more on this, read through the postings on this website because I have discussed this many times before.

  12. Bruce says:

    Since Sagittarius is merging with the Milky Way and it has been suggested that we a part of Sagittarius, is SGR A* part of the Milky Way, Sagittarius or both? Same question about the G2 cloud?

    Thanks in advance,

    • Paul LaViolette says:

      In my opinion the standard propaganda about the Sagittarius dwarf galaxy being a galaxy colliding with our Milky Way at a steep angle to the galactic plane is wrong. It is based on the flawed theory that presumes that galaxies grow by accreting neighboring galaxies. I believe that our galaxy is in the process of being turned into a polar ring galaxy and that this “Sagittarius galaxy” is a stellar stream making up one of these rings around our galaxy. More about this can be found in the 4th edition of Subquantum Kinetics. Obviously, the Galactic center is part of our Galaxy; in fact it generated our galaxy. I recommend you read SQK or Genesis of the Cosmos. Since all you need to answer your questions is there.

    A Happy New Year everyone!

    The youtube channel “Suspicious Observer” got my attention yesterday by showing this Nasa News Release wich seem to support the superwave theory:
    and here:

    There is also another thing that I was wondering about for some time now.
    Perhaps a smaller wave or gamma-ray-beam already hit earth in the from of the late march 2011 GRB-event called the Draco Kill Shot ( ).
    It triggered an unprovoked aurora ( ) and increased radiation was detected on the ground(!)

    What do You think Dr. LaViolette?
    & thank you for your updates.

  14. Kurt Sarrica says:

    Dear Dr. LaViolette,
    You probably heard this news already, but for the benefit of your website followers I would like to share the following two “official announcements”:


    My highly suspiscious nature tells me that the U.S. government knew the galactic superwave was coming all along, but they are just now starting to acknowledge the reality of it in a gradual “public sensitization process” to conceal the fact that they have been spending trillions of tax-payer dollars over the past couple of decades to construct deep underground bases to shelter the “elites” when all hell breaks loose.
    Happy New Year!

  15. Justin says:

    Hi Dr. LaViolette,

    Was just wondering if you have done any calculations on approximate time periods when a superwave could excite/push Solar energy into the Earth similar to what Padre Avondios saw, when the Earth is roughly lined up with the Galactic Center-Solar line? Mid January, end of January, mid February, etc?

    I figure that it might be hard to calculate exact timing, but maybe an approximate range is possible?

    Thank you

    • Paul LaViolette says:

      That would happen only if a superwave was already impacting and when the Sun was between us and the Galactic center.
      The galactic center is about 6° of arc below the ecliptic (8 solar diameters), but it would be nearest the GC on December 17th. This date should be designated as “Galactic Center Day”. So anytime during December would be a time to watch out during a superwave disaster.

  16. David says:

    Happy Holidays to Everyone.

    The Voyager thing is haunting me Dr. LaViolette. How can we we have a 10 month event occuring from our Sun and no other Data has appeared recording this event?

    The remark from the Voyager team should sell some of your books. lol

    ” Voyager 1 detected the most recent event in February, and it is still going on as of November data. The spacecraft has moved outward 250 million miles (400 million kilometers) during the third event.

    “This remarkable event raises questions that will stimulate new studies of the nature of shocks in the interstellar medium,” said Leonard Burlaga, astrophysicist emeritus at NASA Goddard Spaceflight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, who analyzed the magnetic field data that were key to these results.

    It is unclear to researchers what the unusual longevity of this particular wave may mean. They are also uncertain as to how fast the wave is moving or how broad a region it covers.”

    I hope some of the Voyager people get on board with you Dr. LaViolette, and start considering the possible consequences of the influences of our Sister stars and the Mother Star of our Galaxcy on our little blue Planet and our Pilotless Sun as we make our Galatic Journey. Myself, I would dearly love to know what this 10+ Month event is going on with our Star, and what does it mean?

    • Bruce Katz says:

      Good point. I’ve been wondering the same thing.

    • Nicolas says:

      Im hoping we get some insight from Paul about the extraordinary x ray outburst observed from the gc.
      Would this potentially mean that the g2 was absorbed? If so, what’s the time frame for events to come?

  17. David says:

    You are going to need a box full of feathers and a bigger hat to put them in Dr. LaViolette, I saw this report from the Voyager Mission this Morning.

    The Voyager 1 spacecraft has experienced three “tsunami waves” in interstellar space. Listen to how these waves cause surrounding ionized matter to ring like a bell.

    • The Voyager 1 spacecraft has experienced three shock waves

    • The most recent shock wave, first observed in February 2014, still appears to be going on

    • One wave, previously reported, helped researchers determine that Voyager 1 had entered interstellar space

    The “tsunami wave” that NASA’s Voyager 1 spacecraft began experiencing earlier this year is still propagating outward, according to new results. It is the longest-lasting shock wave that researchers have seen in interstellar space.

    “Most people would have thought the interstellar medium would have been smooth and quiet. But these shock waves seem to be more common than we thought,” said Don Gurnett, professor of physics at the University of Iowa in Iowa City. Gurnett presented the new data Monday, Dec. 15 at the American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco.

    A “tsunami wave” occurs when the sun emits a coronal mass ejection, throwing out a magnetic cloud of plasma from its surface. This generates a wave of pressure. When the wave runs into the interstellar plasma — the charged particles found in the space between the stars — a shock wave results that perturbs the plasma.

    “The tsunami causes the ionized gas that is out there to resonate — “sing” or vibrate like a bell,” said Ed Stone, project scientist for the Voyager mission based at California Institute of Technology in Pasadena.

    This is the third shock wave that Voyager 1 has experienced. The first event was in October to November of 2012, and the second wave in April to May of 2013 revealed an even higher plasma density. Voyager 1 detected the most recent event in February, and it is still going on as of November data. The spacecraft has moved outward 250 million miles (400 million kilometers) during the third event.

    “This remarkable event raises questions that will stimulate new studies of the nature of shocks in the interstellar medium,” said Leonard Burlaga, astrophysicist emeritus at NASA Goddard Spaceflight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, who analyzed the magnetic field data that were key to these results.

    It is unclear to researchers what the unusual longevity of this particular wave may mean. They are also uncertain as to how fast the wave is moving or how broad a region it covers.

    The second tsunami wave helped researchers determine in 2013 that Voyager 1 had left the heliosphere, the bubble created by the solar wind encompassing the sun and the planets in our solar system. Denser plasma “rings” at a higher frequency, and the medium that Voyager flew through, was 40 times denser than what had been previously measured. This was key to the conclusion that Voyager had entered a frontier where no spacecraft had gone before: interstellar space.

    “The density of the plasma is higher the farther Voyager goes,” Stone said. “Is that because the interstellar medium is denser as Voyager moves away from the heliosphere, or is it from the shock wave itself? We don’t know yet.”

    Gurnett, principal investigator of the plasma wave instrument on Voyager, expects that such shock waves propagate far out into space, perhaps even to twice the distance between the sun and where the spacecraft is right now.

    Voyager 1 and its twin, Voyager 2, were launched 16 days apart in 1977. Both spacecraft flew by Jupiter and Saturn. Voyager 2 also flew by Uranus and Neptune. Voyager 2, launched before Voyager 1, is the longest continuously operated spacecraft and is expected to enter interstellar space in a few years.

    JPL, a division of Caltech, built the twin Voyager spacecraft and operates them for the Heliophysics Division within NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington.

  18. Paul it seems to be in a phase or dilating instead of becoming spagetti,,, all that goes outward explodes…. so what do you think now?

  19. Time is dilating and maybe we believe it is faster and it is not. Do we have the timings right, so far everything is later than we think

  20. David says:

    Dear Dr. LaViolette,

    Perhaps you can help me with this. It is not about Galactic Core, but a lil closer to home.

    An X-100,000 Solar Flare 60 light Years away

    It seems that:

    “The “superflare” came from one of the stars in a close binary system known as DG Canum Venaticorum, or DG CVn for short, located about 60 light-years away. Both stars are dim red dwarfs with masses and sizes about one-third of our sun’s. They orbit each other at about three times Earth’s average distance from the sun, which is too close for Swift to determine which star erupted.

    In April 2014, NASA’s Swift mission detected a massive superflare from a red dwarf star in the binary system DG CVn, located about 60 light-years away. Astronomers Rachel Osten of the Space Telescope Science Institute and Stephen Drake of NASA Goddard discuss this remarkable event.

    The largest solar explosions are classified as extraordinary, or X class, solar flares based on their X-ray emission. “The biggest flare we’ve ever seen from the sun occurred in November 2003 and is rated as X 45,” explained Drake. “The flare on DG CVn, if viewed from a planet the same distance as Earth is from the sun, would have been roughly 10,000 times greater than this, with a rating of about X 100,000.”

    I was wondering if a CME from this event is possibly on the way, and when it would possibly arrive.

    Thank you in advance for your attention.

  21. David says:

    Yes, Dr. LaVioLette I think it is time to give the Black Hole myth it’s own thread.

    It certainly has me thinking about how many of these Super Dense objects are out there and what they might be capable of in Generating your Super Waves. One might say, the odds have just increased for a Super Wave Event, because I believe any “Black Hole” probably has the energy to get really nasty should something mess with it.

    To put this in perspective, here is a table of magnetic field strengths

  22. Patricia Lagrange Martínez says:

    Thank you for you update. Saludos

  23. David says:

    Math proves Black do NOT Exist:

    By merging two seemingly conflicting theories, Laura Mersini-Houghton, a physics professor at UNC-Chapel Hill in the College of Arts and Sciences, has proven, mathematically, that black holes can never come into being in the first place. The work not only forces scientists to reimagine the fabric of space-time, but also rethink the origins of the universe.

    Put another feather in your cap Dr. LaViolette…….

    Your are right again and again and again…. LOL

    Good Point Petra! You are on top of your game and if we see a reading again to be this high or at least elevated, we have about two (2) days before a majority of the rays arrive. Please be vigilant! RL

    Please Dr. L:

    I see a spike in yesterday’s SWIFT graph that is very large see: . Does this mean that the wave maybe propagating this way now? You did indicate that we should expect the event around this time?

  31. David says:

    Dr. LaViolette,
    I was checking out the space weather this morning and one of the places I check is:

    This site showed the series of large Solar flares and CME bursts on the Back side of the Sun this morning and it also showed our satellite jumping and getting some fuzz.
    After thinking about it all day I thought something else must have come through to make that satellite jump, and the only thing I could think of was maybe a gravity wave came through. Of course several things anywhere could send us a gravity wave, but the most likely candidate might just be the G-2 Cloud.

    I thought I should mention this event because one might want to see what happens over the next few days and see if anything else comes our way.

    I have never seen our satellite jump before, and the solar events were on the backside, so did something hit our sun and the satellite?

  32. David says:

    Good Morning Dr. LaViolette. I was reading about Magnetars this morning since apparently they are capable of sending us X-Class flares on a regular basis (and have sent them) that are as powerful as anything the Sun sends us, except the appear to arrive on a fairly regular basis. Even from 45,000 light years away, they are a force to be reckoned with. Apparently they have found 21 of them (now they are looking for them) in our Milky Way, since they have determined they are an important influence on our Heliosphere and everything in it. I guess they could be sending us what you could call a mini or sub-compact model of your Super Wave. In fact it seems the Magnetar SGR 1900+14 Has sent us 5 of the micro Super Waves since 1998, and there has been an estimated 10 arrive in total at the time of the linked article.

    Solar Flares on Steroids
    Solar flares that scorch Earth’s atmosphere are commonplace. But scientists have discovered a few each year that are not like the others: they come from stars thousands of light years away.

    Apparently a Gentleman thinks he has figured out how Magnetars are formed out a Binary Star system. Ben Richie, co-author of the May 2014 paper . Suggests that instead of the ever popular Black Hole being formed, in certain instances Magnetar’s are formed during a Super Nova event of one of the Binary stars. All of which is supposed to explain away the existence of Magnetar’s at all, instead just Black holes.

    The fore going reminded me of the possibility of the G-2 Cloud being a Binary Star system and other possibilities coming out of this close encounter of the G-2 with our Galactic Core.

    Thanks for your attention to my meanderings, and I would greatly appreciate hearing your ideas about these happenings

    Received: 14 April 2014
    Accepted: 19 June 2014
    Context. The stellar population in the central parsec of the Galaxy is dominated in mass and number by an old (several Gyr) population, but young (6 ± 2 Myr), massive stars dominate the luminosity function. The most luminous of these stars is an M1 supergiant, GCIRS 7.
    Aims. We have studied GCIRS 7 in order to constrain the age of the recent star formation event in the Galactic centre and to characterise it as a visibility and phase reference for observations of the Galactic centre with the interferometric instrument GRAVITY, which will equip the Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI) in the near future.
    Methods. We present the first H-band interferometric observations of GCIRS 7, obtained using the PIONIER visitor instrument on the VLTI using the four 8.2-m unit telescopes. In addition, we present unpublished K-band VLTI/AMBER data and build JHKL light curves based on archival data spanning almost 40 years, and measured the star’s effective temperature using SINFONI integral field spectroscopy.
    Results. GCIRS 7 is marginally resolved in the H band with a uniform-disk diameter θUD(2013) = 1.076 ± 0.093 mas (RUD(2013) = 960 ± 92 R⊙ at 8.33 ± 0.35 kpc). We detect a significant circumstellar contribution in the K band. The star and its environment are variable in brightness and in size. The photospheric H-band variations are modelled well with two periods: P0 ≃ 470 ± 10 days (amplitude ≃0.64 mag) and long secondary period PLSP ≃ 2700 − 2850 days (amplitude ≃1.1 mag). As measured from 12CO equivalent width, ⟨Teff⟩ = 3600 ± 195 K.
    Conclusions. The size, periods, luminosity (⟨Mbol⟩ = −8.44 ± 0.22), and effective temperature are consistent with an M1 supergiant with an initial mass of 22.5 ± 2.5 M⊙ and an age of 6.5–10 Myr (depending on rotation). This age is in remarkable agreement with most estimates for the recent star formation event in the central parsec. Caution should be taken when using this star as a phase reference or visibility calibrator because it is variable in size, is surrounded by a variable circumstellar environment, and large convection cells may form on its photosphere.

    I once heard that the real purpose, why the pyramids
    in Egypt were built thousands of years ago was that
    they should be something like a generating plant
    which has to be activated shortly bevore the cosmic
    radiation will affect earth. Those who built the pyramids
    knew about this event which is a cyclical thing..
    What do you think about this theory?
    Brigitte from Germany

    • Paul LaViolette says:

      I have no knowledge of any such intention. If there is high tech apparatus of that sort hidden in or below the pyramid, then it is a tightly kept secret. Based on what is publicly known about the pyramids, I believe that the Sphinx and Great Pyramid were constructed as a marker to commemorate the long series of catastrophes that humanity passed through at the ending of the ice age. I have posted on this subject before.

  36. Skylark says:

    Dr LaViolette, I’m not sure I understand the telegram, I must be missing something. They say they have established the compactness of the source, confirmed lack of significant activity, and from that conluded periastron not yet reached. How does that follow? Is their conclusion sound?

  37. Charlie Knoll says:

    This study concludes that G2 has not reached periapse:

    • Paul LaViolette says:

      This is very interesting. I will make a separate post about it. It seems something may still happen in the coming months. We should upgrade our alert level. Here is the posting about it:

      • Light speed is the limit, but according to Hawking, when a mass turned to energy on a galactic scale such as this event happens, in order to preserve the speed limit, time will adjust to allow the expansion of the energy and not break the laws of physics. We can observe super luminal speeds in other parts of the universe since we are not involved in that event. Due to our proximity, we are inside the sphere of influence so time is going to have an effect on us.
        Hawking has also said he believes time travel into the past would be impossible due to a sort of feedback loop that would be caused by quantum particles rushing into the opening of the (for lack of a better phrase) hole in time repeatedly.
        What are your thoughts on a change in the directional flow of time? Could we be seeing a reversal of time at GC? Is it an illusion or a reflection off of a ripple in the space time continuum? Is this a proof of some type, suggesting that a body of some type has been consumed causing an event?
        I believe that an event such as this would send shocks through time, both forward and backward. I also believe that we may find the human mind does transcend the concept of time and that time distortions have no effect on our ability to observe the world around us. The biggest negative effect on our minds from this type of realization would be the inability of some individual minds to accept the fact that time is a manufactured constraint.

          Ruffle the Teacher: Apparently you have not read any of my papers or any of my books like Genesis of the Cosmos or Subquantum Kinetics. If you had you would know that my position on time travel to the past is that it is totally science fiction. I agree with Hawking’s view, but for different reason. The universe is driven by a etheric flux that relentless proceeds unidirectionally. Hence time has a vector always forward, never backward. Please read my books and papers on subquantum kinetics and don’t take up my time again with such questions.

          • Pachakamakin says:

            ….Unidirectionally, or omnidirectionally? Sorry I am interested.

          • Paul LaViolette says:

            Evidence suggests that the cosmic ray wind is omnidirectional, not confined to a beam as most of the astronomical community maintains. Indeed the wind may be a few fold stronger in the axial direction. But this is no reason to ignore the rest of it which is blowing outward quite forcefully in all directions.

    The calm before the storm?
    I just heard this interesting report from NASA which lends support to your theory that the galactic superwave will
    force cosmic dust from interstellar space into the Solar System. Interstellar space is FORTY TIMES DENSER than
    space within the Solar System:
    Thanks for the update!

    • Paul LaViolette says:

      Actually that report does not refer to the dust density in interstellar space. It says that the plasma density is 40 times higher. This plasma consists mainly of hydrogen and helium ions. This higher density is expected because outside the heliopause there is a shock region where such plasma piles up due to encountering the helopause barrier.

  39. kealia says:

    Dr. LaViolette, a recent study postulates that black holes can sustain a magnetic field as strong as its own gravitational field, and that a gas cloud trapped in the magnetic field of the black hole could levitate in position. If that were the case wouldn’t there be a whole bunch of debris floating around a black hole? I keep hearing the disembodied voice of Morgan Freeman in my head reciting that nothing escapes the gravitational pull of a black hole? Would a binary star within the gas cloud levitate as well? So now we are to believe that a black hole is a picky eater?

    • Paul LaViolette says:

      The group putting out PR about their finding of strong magnetic fields in the vicinity of a galactic core appears to focus on this and blow it out of proportion. There is more going on in the core vicinity than just a strong gravitational field and a strong magnetic field. There is also the very strong cosmic ray and ion wind that blows out from the core. This news report makes no mention of this. In the case of the Galactic core, astronomers have determined that at the distance of the G2 cloud orbit this wind is so strong that it blows the G2 cloud gas outward with no possibility of core infall. The claim that a gas cloud would levitate through the action of gravity and magnetism is an ivory tower case that does not correspond to reality. The other problem with this claim is that, even in this ideal case of no core wind, if the gas from the cloud contained ferro magnetic and paramagnetic material the core’s magnetic force acting on this material would act in the same direction on this material as its gravity force (inward), hence there would be no levitation occurring. Bottom line is this balancing act claim does not hold much water.

  40. mitchell hawkins says:

    Dr. LaViolette, if what i heard on my local news station this evening is correct. Then there have been two stelar events in our galaxy with in ten days of one another. The latest was 20,000 ltyrs away from earth. I would like to know how far from the galactic core these latest events were? The one before todays was rather close in galactic standards. Also, if you could look up data on what the gravity telescopes have picked up over the past month, that would awesome. Hopefully, they weren’t down for repairs again. Also Etna exploded again. 🙂

    Thanks Sir, your works are a marvel.

    Dr. LaViolette:
    Thank you very much for your updates. Thank you also for the exiting learning roller ride. Cheers and God bless you. Thank you everybody for your comments.

  43. Charlie Knoll says:

    New observations indicate that the gas cloud does indeed contain a star: “We conclude that G2, which is currently experiencing its closest approach, is still intact, in contrast to predictions for a simple gas cloud hypothesis and therefore most likely hosts a central star. Keck LGSAO observations of G2 will continue in the coming months to monitor how this unusual object evolves as it emerges from periapse passage.”

  44. Kathryn says:

    Better to be wise than blind-sided by an event involving our Galactic Core. I will hope for the best, until further notice form you, regarding a 2nd cloud or sudden change in the G2 cloud that might lead to a potential galactic wave event! Thank you for your persistence in this research.

  47. albert says:

    Hi Dr LaViolette, thanks for being aware! So now that the G2 cloud has passed pericenter,does that change any statistics in terms of the core pulling something out. Or are we in the same boat?

    • Paul LaViolette says:

      There have been no reports of a split in the G2 cloud, but still it is possible that a planetary or brown dwarf companion could have been stripped off the primary star within G2 and that this separating component is not evident because it is not generating a second cloud. I have revised my calculations to take into account that the primary star is estimated to be traveling at around 6300 kilometers per second as it rounds the core at epicenter. If we assume that G2 is 200 AU from the core at epicenter and figuring the gravitational pull of the core at this distance (0.07 g), it will take some time for this pull to counter the companion’s orbital momentum and redirect it inward. A rough estimate predicts that it will take about 4.5 months from its separation from the primary star when G2 is at epicenter. So counting from April 1st, this implies that the companion could plunge toward the core and possibly impact the core around mid August, 2014. Previously, I had incorrectly figured 2 – 3 weeks for the infall time, an estimate that failed to take into account G2’s high tangential velocity as it circles the core. So for at least the next 3 months it is likely that not much will be happening in terms of emissions from the core. Thereafter we should be alert.

      Sorry, I cannot take time to advise people on a person by person basis on matters of survival. Form your own support group. Besides we don’t have definite evidence yet that a superwave will imminently arrive, only probabilities and prophecies. Though, it is good to be prepared.

    • estoy perdido says:

      Patricia, I am preparing as if there will be no electricity following the wave, so even a generator is almost pointless except for a few days. I don’t believe that a “temporary’ shutdown of electricity is possible. I am preparing with food and water, shelter of mi casa, windows will have to suffice.

  54. Solar Comets says:

    Dear Dr LaViolette, I’ve been interpreting comets as Solar messengers for a while, sometimes with eerie accuracy. Recently we had a grouping led by ISON, you may be interested in a coming arrangement that has a strong galactic component. They are C/2014 E2 Jacques, C/2012 K1 Panstarrs, C/2013 V5 Oukaimeden and C/2013 A1 Siding Spring. Pan. connects to the previous group, Jacques is the leader of the present. The fun starts in late June: Jacques is occulted by the Moon on the 27th, has perihelion on 2 July, then during July 7-13, Jacques and Ouk. meet in a tight alignment with Mercury and Venus, with Jacques then passing within 4 degrees of Crab nebula just as Venus is passing it within 22 arc minutes. Following this, Jacques speeds up exactly along the galactic plane through Auriga, Perseus, Cassiopeia, Cepheus, across wing of Cygnus, ending its apparition in Aquila the Eagle. Meanwhile, Ouk. speeds along the same path that Jacques was on through Monoceros and below Hydra, retracing the path in reverse. The match is beyond coincidence. Then, October 16-22, Ouk. and Siding Spring cross the ecliptic at the same time as they align with Saturn and Mars respectively. A few days earlier Siding has passed the sting of Scorpio and is now aligned with the galactic core! By early Jan 2015, they have both cut across the two ends of the Serpent carried by Ophiuchus, ending their apparition.

    Dr LaViolette, I don’t like to interpret comets negatively, but the most obvious interpretation here is that of signalling a galactic outburst. Crab pulsar is shown as pointing to the core, whose superwave will travel out across the galactic plane. I will try harder to find a positive interpretation, but for now I have some questions I hope you can answer.

    1) Could the outburst be of low enough intensity that there are no “fireworks”, perhaps not even detected with the instruments, but nevertheless resulting in a superwave that disrupts us?

    2) Could there be more than one outburst?

    3) Is the pulsar network in some way marking the path of Jacques as outlined above?

    4) Much of the cometary story is told in numbers – if you could show some numbers that are significant in relation to the galactic core and its possible outburst, what would they be?

    Thank you and best wishes.

    I found this March 22nd report.

    As part of an ongoing community service observing program to follow the expected encounter of the G2 cloud with the black hole Sgr A* in 2013/2014 (, the NRAO Very Large Array observed the Sgr A region starting 2014 March 22 12:45 UT for two hours, cycling through the standard observing bands at their default 8-bit (i.e., up to 2 GHz bandwidth) continuum frequencies. The data from the monitoring program are publicly available through the NRAO data archive immediately after observing has completed, and the flux densities are published by NRAO staff as soon as the data are reduced. The March 22 data were reduced with a modified VLA CASA pipeline, and the flux density of Sgr A* was measured as listed below. The cumulative results of the monitoring effort are posted on the service observing web page and so far do not indicate a significant brightening of the emission from the direction of Sgr A* over the period 2012 October to 2014 March, within the calibration uncertainties. Measurements of 2014 March 22: 1.5 GHz (0.68 Jy upper limit) 3.0 GHz 0.68 +/-10% Jy 5.5 GHz 0.78 +/-10% Jy 10.0 GHz 0.84 +/-10% Jy 14.0 GHz 0.99 +/-10% Jy 21.2 GHz 1.16 +/-10% Jy 32.0 GHz 1.39 +/-10% Jy 41.0 GHz 1.53 +/-10% Jy

  61. albert says:

    Dr Laviolette hi great work! A couple of questions, I live in the great valley in northern california. Could an ice age strike here in the event of a superwave? I heard a while back anything above Kansas City is in the iceage zone

    • Paul LaViolette says:

      ice ages take hundreds of years to onset. You will be long gone from this planet before you have to worry about that.

      • albert says:

        Dr LaViolette, thanks for the reply. I didn’t really want to deal with an iceage anyways!

        So my other question was, say l had an electric device in a Faraday box in the event of a superwave, would it be safe to take out the device after the first three days of the wave? Or would it be wiser to wait longer for the device to work if at all.

        • Paul LaViolette says:

          I don’t know what device you are referring to. But I am guessing that it should be OK as long as it is not plugged into a wall outlet, as there could be current surges in the grid if a superwave were to occur. So perhaps a Faraday cage is not necessary.

  62. warpedweaver says:

    the above link refers to the BICEP2 telescope which is supposedly capable of detecting gravity waves. Could it be used as a resource for information regarding the possible gravity wave preceding the galactic center superwave?

    • Paul LaViolette says:

      No use doing gravity wave investigations for that. When it comes, it will come suddenly and you will know it from the seismic disturbance it will create. No way to predict its arrival.

  63. Charlie says:

    A new paper has been published that examines the accretion of the G2 cloud into the SMBH: In all modeled cases including an embedded binary star, 90% of the mass of the cloud was accreted into the SMBH. It is also interesting that the latest data from swift on 3/26 shows a spike in luminosity, the second strongest of the year.

    • Paul LaViolette says:

      In this paper the authors do consider at the end of their paper the possibility that G2 Cloud contains a binary star system. They may have included this as a last minute modification to their paper after two of the three authors (Karas and Eckart) had received my email in January describing the plausibility of the binary star scenario. Also I had posted on about the binary star scenario back in August 2013, a month before the authors had submitted their paper; see However, their analysis does not touch on the important point of what the probability would be for a companion star to become accreted by the core.
      In regard to the recent spike in the Swift data, this is not anything spectacular. It is in the range of the present noise level and is not originating from the Galactic core. All of the X-ray variability that is currently seen is coming from the nearby magnetar which is still in the process of cooling down from its outburst of one year ago. It’s X-ray noise still is high enough to mask the X-ray emission coming from the GC.

    Hi Dr. LaViolette,

    I was wondering, could a galactic superwave cause intensely “red skies”? Awhile back, i was shown red skies in relation to earth changes, but i assumed it was related to a strong solar event akin to the Carrington event. But i’ve been wondering of late, if a superwave could also cause something like this?

    Also, just want to mention that i’ve been receiving info or reminders (via various ways, dreams, intuitive feelings, meditation waking dreams or audio like messages, etc) about the earth changes for a couple of decades, but it’s only been quite recent that the messages that my wife and i have received have changed in nature and tone (and frequency has picked up). Never before have we been given any kind of time line, or told soon, get fully prepared like we have in the last few months or so.

    I can’t say for any certainty this is related to a galactic superwave because i haven’t been shown that specifically. However, before my wife and i became aware of the G2 cloud and your talking about it’s possible interaction with the G.C., she had a dream indicating that a collapse was coming soon and got the sense that we needed to prepare in earnest. A little while after her dream, i had a strong intuitive nudge to check out your site again, after awhile of not looking at it. I was surprised to find out about the G2 cloud and the possibility of a soon to come superwave. Might have been a synchronicity type “message”.

    Anyways, thought i would share this. However, i feel the best way for people to get info is directly from within. I find a combo of the following to help a lot in this. Meditate and set a specific intention of something like (say in your mind or preferably out loud), “I deeply desire and ask for the help, guidance and wisdom of only the most spiritually mature, loving, helpful, aware and expanded sources (for me this is Christ, Source and those fully intune with these but these labels aren’t necessary if you use the former).

    Then remember a time wherein you felt a lot of Love. Bring up that memory, focus on the feeling of Love, let it well up inside. Give sincere and heartfelt thanks for any and all help you receive from those above sources.

    Clear your mind of all preconceptions. Ask your questions, and then just get still and listen. Don’t preconceive how and when it will be answered–there are many ways and avenues to get answers, but be rest assured, if it’s helpful for you and your growth and you are sincere, you will get some kind of answer.

    This combo method has helped me, and i’ve had definite verification way beyond chance of info and messages received before. Another thing i sometimes practice in combo is to say, “Please bring to my conscious awareness, that which would be most helpful for me and/or the Whole to become aware of now”.

    • Paul LaViolette says:

      Thank you for sharing your meditation technique for acquiring clairvoyant information. Yes, red skies could result from a superwave event of the more prolonged kind. A superwave having a duration of many decades could bring cosmic dust into the solar system and this could surround the sun and change its spectrum more to the red. Also dust entering the upper atmosphere might create a reddening effect. There might also be effects from superwave cosmic rays ionizing the upper atmosphere but am not sure what spectral effects this would have.

      • Justin says:

        Thank you for the reply Dr. LaViolette. Btw, i made a small donation–would have made more but i really am pretty broke right now. If there is a superwave to come in the next couple of months, then i suppose money won’t matter much at all. It will become about survival skills, community, gardening, hunting, etc.

It seems to correlate, and the data was shown on Bartol and then removed, but now it is back. Perhaps it was at first thought to be in error but found to be correct:

I think the swift telescope would be the most accurate indicator as of an impending galactic wave as it is space based with a radius of 10″ pointed directly at SgrA*. The swift telescope is measuring .03 ct/s whereas the ground based neutron monitors are measuring 30 – 200 ct/s and must be observing other radiation sources.

    For what it’s worth, I just had a very powerful intuition that perhaps the announcement made by the International Space Station on Saturday regarding their two-week time frame before they shut the data feed to the public was, in truth, a countdown to the Event/Wave.

    Perhaps the Lagrange point of the G2 cloud was reached on Saturday and thus they made their announcement but in ‘coded’ fashion giving those ‘in the know’ a two-weeks notice of sorts.

    • Paul LaViolette says:

      Very interesting thought. It is good to be a bit paranoid at a time like this. I will need to shoot an email off to some GC investigators to see if they have seen any evidence of the G2 cloud splitting in two.

    Lastly, we have the latest Hobbit movie where, again we see the archer/Sagittarius theme played out as the dragon Smaug is taken out by the archer. Smaug is then analogous to the ‘matrix’ or grid which has held humanity hostage as well as keeping our own treasure from us as Smaug jealousy guarded his hoard. The good news is that after the ‘dragon’ was killed the treasure could be divided amongst the free peoples. This is also analogous to the new global monetary system that is, according to rumor, supposed to be implemented right following ‘The Event’ and the arrest/dissolution of the cabal/dragon. This could be good news for everyone indeed but we must remember it all comes AFTER The Event. Let’s all hope the oncoming ‘wave'(s) will be primarily evolutionary in nature as opposed to massive seismic and geological events so that we can have our proverbial cake and eat it too:)

Then, the following week on April 4th one day before the ISS feed goes dark we have the new Captain America movie; The Winter Soldier, which again plays to themes of a global blackout which makes one think back to the first ever National Blackout Excersise held just this past November.

    Further movie hints at what 2014 will hold can be found in the titles of the recent Thor sequel; The Dark World and then there was the last Star Trek movie last May; Into Darkness.

    ” Synopsis: Earth as Giant Gravitational Wave Detector
    Synopsis Image
    M. Coughlin and J. Harms, Phys. Rev. Lett. (2014)
    Upper Limit on a Stochastic Background of Gravitational Waves from Seismic Measurements in the Range 0.05–1 Hz

    Michael Coughlin and Jan Harms
    Phys. Rev. Lett. 112, 101102 (2014)
    Published March 13, 2014

    Gravitational wave (GW) detectors range from meter-wide test masses to kilometer-long laser interferometers. The Earth itself is also a potential GW receiver that outputs its signal in seismic waves. A new analysis of seismograph data constrains the amount of GW radiation in the Universe at frequencies just below 1 hertz (Hz). The derived upper limit, presented in Physical Review Letters, is orders of magnitude lower than the previous bound at these frequencies.

    Gravitational waves are ripples in the fabric of spacetime, predicted to arise from the accelerated motion of massive bodies, such as orbiting neutron stars. When a GW passes through an object (like Earth), it can induce very small, potentially detectable vibrations. The physicist Freeman Dyson speculated in 1968 that one might detect the GWs from pulsars in seismic wave data. However, several past attempts failed to find a verifiable signal. In fact, no detector of any kind has directly observed a GW as of yet.

    Michael Coughlin of Harvard University and Jan Harms of the National Institute of Nuclear Physics in Florence, Italy, take a fresh look at the GW-seismic wave connection. Instead of searching for a signal from a specific GW source, they consider the sum of all GW emission over the sky in the largely unexplored frequency region between 0.05 and 1 Hz. This uniform GW background would presumably contribute to random seismic wave noise. Therefore, by estimating the noise in a global network of seismographs, the researchers place an upper bound on the energy density of sub-hertz GW radiation. This limit is not very stringent when compared to other limits at higher and lower GW frequencies. But the new bound is a factor of a billion better than previous limits at similar frequencies provided by precision laboratory mass measurements. – Michael Schirber ”

    • Paul LaViolette says:

      The gravity wave of a superwave, if it could be detected by some of these detectors would have a frequency far below 1 Hertz. The gravity wave could have a rise time of one day with possible ripples in the minute range (0.01 Hz) I am just guessing. But keep in mind, these are not ripples in space-time; they are ripples in gravity potential, i.e., in G ether concentration. There would also be a G ether wind driven outward from the Galactic center which would cause a relativistic time dilation effect, as if we were momentarily traveling at a high velocity relative to the local rest frame. This is something not predicted by standard theory. In the Sphinx Stargate world, special and general relativity and the space-time concept stand disproven in multiple ways, as described in my books. They are replaced by the ether physics concepts of subquantum kinetics.

    Thank you for the update Dr. L!

    I have sensed that the core will not throw a tantrum and spew its’ energy our way.
