ALERT! Solar Proton Spallation Event Watch

A strong Solar  X-class flare on 7/6/12 may result in a large Earthly proton bombardment. Under the right conditions, these protons could impact airborne Fukushima fallout and produce a veritable witch's brew of radioactive iodines and other spallation products.

Typically when these events happen, the effects are first reported in the Nordic countries as radioiodine detections of indeterminate origins.  We suspect that the recent upswing in Fukushima fallout may result in unusual phenomena tied to this X -class flare. Please watch for and share any reports of any unusual activity.
