The Galactic center became active today - Paul LaViolette

A number of us are on the watch for any activity in relation to Gas Cloud G2, as discussed in past articles on transients.info. (this is of course connected and tied into the shift in consciousness) Here is a new article that Paul LaViolette just posted in relation to activity from the Galactic Center.

X-ray flare detected September 10th from Galactic center

Warning: Today a Swift X-ray spike alert was sent out.  An abrupt spike in X-ray emission was detected today coming from the Galactic center, Sgr A*.  This spike is the largest to occur in the past year and a half.  The X-ray spike that occurred 500 days ago came from a magnetar near the Galactic center.  Whether the current spike is being emitted by this same magnetar or is coming from the Galactic center itself, we can’t be sure until further data is obtained.  Because it appears to have been a brief event, the X-ray signal coming back down to its previous noise level, my guess is that this is coming from the Galactic center, possibly due to a discrete object falling into the core.  Tomorrow’s Swift data will show whether the low X-ray emission continues or whether it soars upward again.  Let’s pray that this September 11th will not  bring to the world any serious danger.  For the time being, to be on the safe side, we should begin taking precautions for possible successive events of elevated cosmic ray exposure event.

Keep in mind that this is a very small spike that would not have posed any cosmic ray exposure hazard.  When it becomes a thousand fold increase, then we have some cause to worry.
