NASA Claims Sun's Polar Shift Due In 2012
February 15, 2001
Solar System - Did you notice? In February
2001, the Sun did a magnetic polar shift. The next one is
due again in 2012.
NASA scientists who monitor the
Sun say that our star's awesome magnetic field flipped 22 months
ago, signaling the arrival of a solar maximum. But it wasn't so
obvious to the average human.
The Sun's magnetic north pole, which was in the northern hemisphere
just a few months ago, now points south. It's a topsy-turvy
situation, but not an unexpected one.
"This always happens around the time
of solar maximum," says David Hathaway, a solar physicist at the
Marshall Space Flight Center. "The magnetic poles exchange
places at the peak of the sunspot cycle. In fact, it's a good
indication that Solar Max is really here."
The Sun's magnetic poles will remain as
they are now, with the north magnetic pole pointing through the
Sun's southern hemisphere, until the year 2012 when
counts, plotted here against an x-ray image of the Sun, are
nearing their maximum for the current solar cycle. [more
reverse again. This transition happens, as far as we know, at the
peak of every 11-year sunspot cycle -- like clockwork.
Earth’s magnetic field also flips, but with less regularity.
Consecutive reversals are spaced 5 thousand years to 50 million
years apart. The last reversal happened 740,000 years ago. Some
researchers think our planet is overdue for another one, but nobody
knows exactly when the next reversal might occur.
The Sun's basic
magnetic field, like Earth's, resembles that of a bar
Although solar and terrestrial magnetic fields behave differently,
they do have something in common: their shape. During solar minimum
the Sun's field, like Earth's, resembles that of an iron bar magnet,
with great closed loops near the equator and open field lines near
the poles. Scientists call such a field a "dipole."
dipolar field is about as strong as a refrigerator magnet, or 50
gauss (a unit of magnetic intensity). Earth's magnetic field is 100
When solar maximum arrives and sunspots pepper the face of the Sun,
our star's magnetic field begins to change. Sunspots are places
where intense magnetic loops -- hundreds of times stronger than the
ambient dipole field -- poke through the photosphere.
"Meridional flows on the Sun's
surface carry magnetic fields from mid-latitude sunspots to the
Sun's poles," explains Hathaway. "The poles end up flipping
because these flows transport south-pointing magnetic flux to
the north magnetic pole, and north-pointing flux to the south
The dipole field steadily weakens as
oppositely-directed flux accumulates at the Sun's poles until, at
the height of solar maximum, the magnetic poles change polarity and
begin to grow in a new direction.
Hathaway noticed the latest polar reversal in a "magnetic butterfly
diagram." Using data collected by astronomers at the U.S. National
Solar Observatory on Kitt Peak, he plotted the Sun's average
magnetic field, day by day, as a function of solar latitude and time
from 1975 through the present. The result is a sort of strip chart
recording that reveals evolving magnetic patterns on the Sun's
"We call it a butterfly diagram," he
says, "because sunspots make a pattern in this plot that looks
like the wings of a butterfly."
In the butterfly diagram, pictured
below, the Sun's polar fields appear as strips of uniform color near
90 degrees latitude. When the colors change (in this case from blue
to yellow or vice versa) it means the polar fields have switched
In this "magnetic
butterfly diagram," yellow regions are occupied by south-pointing

At mid-latitudes the diagram is dominated by intense magnetic fields
During the sunspot
cycle, sunspots drift, on average, toward the equator -- hence the
The uniform blue and
yellow regions near the poles reveal the orientation of the Sun's
underlying dipole magnetic field.
The ongoing changes are not confined to the space immediately around
our star, Hathaway added. The Sun's magnetic field envelops the
entire solar system in a bubble that scientists call the "heliosphere."
The heliosphere extends 50 to 100 astronomical units (AU) beyond the
orbit of Pluto. Inside it is the solar system -- outside is
"Changes in the Sun's magnetic field
are carried outward through the heliosphere by the solar wind,"
explains Steve Suess, another solar physicist at the Marshall
Space Flight Center. "It takes about a year for disturbances to
propagate all the way from the Sun to the outer bounds of the

days) solar magnetic fields corkscrew outwards in the shape of an
Archimedian spiral. Far above the poles the magnetic fields twist
around like a child's Slinky toy.

prepared this figure,
which shows the Sun's
spiraling magnetic fields from a vantage point ~100 AU from the Sun.
Because of all the twists and turns, "the impact of the field
reversal on the heliosphere is complicated," says Hathaway. Sunspots
are sources of intense magnetic knots that spiral outwards even as
the dipole field vanishes. The heliosphere doesn't simply wink out
of existence when the poles flip -- there are plenty of complex
magnetic structures to fill the void.
Or so the theory goes....
Researchers have never seen the magnetic
flip happen from the best possible point of view -- that is, from
the top down. But now, the unique Ulysses spacecraft may give
scientists a reality check. Ulysses, an international joint venture
of the European Space Agency and NASA, was launched in 1990 to
observe the solar system from very high solar latitudes. Every six
years the spacecraft flies 2.2 AU over the Sun's poles. No other
probe travels so far above the orbital plane of the planets.
encounter with Jupiter in 1992,
spacecraft went into a high polar orbit. It's maximum solar
latitude is 80.2 degrees south.
"Ulysses just passed under the Sun's
south pole," says Suess, a mission co-Investigator. "Now it will
loop back and fly over the north pole in the fall."
"This is the most important part of
our mission," he says.
Ulysses last flew over the Sun's poles
in 1994 and 1996, during solar minimum, and the craft made several
important discoveries about cosmic rays, the solar wind, and more.
"Now we get to see the Sun's poles during the other extreme: Solar
Max. Our data will cover a complete solar cycle."

Pole Shift &
Pole Reversal in
by Patrick Geryl
In 2012 the next polar reversal will
take place on earth. This means that the North Pole will be changed
into the South Pole. Scientifically this can only be explained by
the fact that the earth will start rotating in the opposite
direction, together with a huge disaster of unknown proportions.
In my books I reveal the immense cataclysm that is going to torment
the earth in the near future. It is presently assumed by most people
and the general scientific world at large, that the rotation of the
Earth is stable, however, as expounded in my previous works on this
subject, this is not the case. The gruesome reports of the previous
catastrophes should, hopefully, be clear to all.
The historical exploration of cosmology in previous books is founded
on the translation of hieroglyphs, cracking of codes, unveiling of
the magnetic reversal of the sun, study of old maps, decoding of
astronomical clues, geological research, and the discovery of the
most exciting archaeological find in modern times.
Considering these I came to the following conclusions:
With clock-like regularity, sudden
reversals and pole shifts are natural to the Earth. The result
is worldwide destruction, and is supported by paleo-magnetic
evidence and early manuscripts.
The reversal of the poles is
attributed to the harmonic cycle of the magnetic fields of the
Polar reversals can be calculated
precisely on the basis of the sunspot cycle theory or the
magnetic field theory, which the Maya and the Old Egyptians were
privy to. These secrets are contained in the Labyrinth of Hawara
a huge complex consisting of three thousand rooms.
The question of the labyrinth has also been studied by David Rohl,
who thinks that there is a connection between Avaris and the
Labyrinth of Hawara or Aueris (i.e. 'Avaris', meaning 'house of the
department') in the Faiyum, described by the Greek traveller
Herodotus. This enormous building next to the pyramid of Amenemhet
III was called 'the Labyrinth' because of its endless maze of
courtyards, corridors and rooms. Interestingly, it was built just
before the Hyksos period.
I explained abundantly clearly that life
after a polar reversal is nothing but horror, pure unimaginable
horror. All securities you presently have at hand, like - amongst
others - food, transport, and medicines, will have disappeared in
one big blow, dissolved into nothingness. As will our complete
civilization. It cannot be more horrifying than this; worse than the
worst nightmare. More destructive than a nuclear war in which the
entire global arsenal of nuclear weapons has been deployed in one
Are you grasping the facts?
The earth will be subjected to total destruction. It will be many
times worse than my description. Terrible hunger, cold and pain, and
more will rule your daily life: without hope of a quick recovery,
because all knowledge and resources will have been completely
destroyed. That will be the reality of your daily life after the
forthcoming polar reversal. And it is in this scenario you will have
to try to survive.
The Riddle of the Magnetic Field Solved
At present scientists still do not know much about the mechanism
that generates the magnetic field of the earth, which is more than
frightening. Without doubt, our continued existence depends upon
this. Thousands of years ago our ancestors knew that when this
magnetic field tilts, a worldwide destruction takes place. The
present geologists, astronomers and physicists know little about
this. For that reason we are running towards our end, without a
single acknowledgement from official sources.
So, what do our professors indeed know?
Next to nothing. In short,
the scenario is as follows: a solid central core rotates in the
center of the earth. It is surrounded by a liquid iron-like layer,
on top of which the earth's crust is continuously drifting. This
whole structure therefore appears to be a huge rotating dynamo. In
addition, the liquid layer rotates in the electrostatic field of the
sun, recharging itself.
However, this is not at all efficient: more electrical potential is
lost than gained. Just like a battery that is almost empty, it is
difficult to recharge and it becomes exhausted more easily and
quickly. This is the situation with the "battery" of the magnetic
field of the earth. For this reason one sees the force of the
magnetic field diminishing, almost 60% over the last two thousand
At this rate there will not be much left within a couple of decades!
And then one can expect a reversal of the poles. But nobody knows in
what way this will happen, nor what the consequences will be, in
contrast to the Maya and the Old Egyptians who knew the terrible
consequences only too well. Their science, their religion and way of
life were completely based on them. They encoded their knowledge in
Holy Numbers and in their architecture.
I needed days, weeks, months and years to follow their carefully
applied clues and decode them. After an exasperatingly long search,
I found out that these codes were connected with the catastrophic
events on earth that were caused by pole shifts. Some of the codes
were terribly complicated, although not incomprehensible. Once you
have figured out the cipher, you are able to decipher the different
levels of their scientific language. Then you can literally peel
away layer after layer until you reach the ultimate result: the
naked scientific figures regarding the background of these
Unknown Sunspot Cycle Theory Gives the
The answers to these questions are alarming and devastating. All my
deciphering points to a complex and ingenious science. Let me
explain. When you, as a scientist, stumble upon results that the
present astronomers do not know, you have, without doubt, stumbled
upon something terribly important. Everybody will have to admit it,
and that is exactly what I have done: I discovered an echo of a
long-lost technological terminology; a majestic building with
immensely sophisticated keys. Many numbers were based on the sunspot
cycle, which they had discovered. A theory that is irrefutably
correct and not known by our physicists! It cannot be more alarming!
This theory, in turn, correlates with the periodical polar reversals
of the earth. I succeeded in cracking the whole puzzle and a
large-scale structure appeared. Its development was such that the
mathematical matrix ends on the day of the next polar reversal!
Just like the way we count down to the launching of a rocket, they
counted down to the End of Times. On the last day of the calendar
the magnetic north of the earth will change into the south. They
knew this would not only mean the end of their civilization, but
also of the whole civilized world!
Solar Lightning Causes the Polar
From legends and the sunspot cycle theory of the Maya, we can
reconstruct the cause of a polar reversal. It has long been known
that when a beam of lightning strikes a magnet, a reversal of the
magnetic poles takes place. Let's apply this principle on a broader
Our earth is a huge magnet, with its own North and South Poles. A
short-circuit with another external "beam of lightning,” or magnet,
can end in a catastrophic polar reversal. This means that the
magnetic North Pole changes place with the magnetic South Pole. But
what sort of external beam can cause this? What force is powerful
enough to stop the rotation of the earth and revert it?
Only one object can cause this: our sun. You know from the book, The
Orion Prophecy that the magnetic field of the sun undergoes a
drastic change every 11,500 to 12,000 years. Once a crucial point
has been reached, it reverses instantaneously. Chaotic outbursts
accompany this phenomenon and an immense cloud of plasma is
catapulted into space. Then a shock wave of particles reaches our
planet and the polar reversal of our earth commences.
With unknown power this solar lightning strikes our planet and
causes a gigantic short circuit. That is the catastrophic truth
behind a polar reversal of the earth. But how can we scientifically
describe this fact? What is the precise physical cause that produces
this polar reversal?
Solar Storms Cause the Pole Shift
In the book
Earth under Fire I
came upon the correct theory. More precisely, in the chapter
entitled "Solar Storms and Geomagnetic Flips."
Paul La Violette writes
“Field flips have been accomplished
experimentally, by shooting large quantities of loaded particles
on a strong bipolar magnet. These particles are then caught in
the magnetic fields and cause a "ring-stream" in them. At a
certain moment this stream speeds up to such an extent that the
field of the magnet reverses completely.”
In an equivalent scenario the field of
the earth can reverse in just the same way. Astronomers know that
the particles of a solar storm can compress the earth's magnetic
field and temporarily speed up the power of the earth's field.
When the solar particles reach our planet, the
electromagnetically-loaded particles will move in a spiral along the
magnetic lines: from the magnetic north pole to the magnetic south
pole and back. While passing this north-south axis, they will move
into the direction of the equator. When they arrive there, they will
join into a super powerful "ring current."
This "ring current" generates an intense magnetic field that is
opposite to the earth's magnetic field. In order to overpower the
earth's magnetic field you need a solar flame a hundred times more
forceful than the biggest one we have ever seen. At the reversal of
the magnetic field of the sun this degree will certainly be reached.
From here on, my point of view deviates from that expressed by Paul
La Violette. Not only will the poles reverse, but also the earth
will begin to rotate in the opposite direction! This can only occur
when the "ring current" pushes the inner core of the earth in the
Everybody knows that when you change the poles of an electric motor,
it will start turning the other way. The same holds for the interior
of the earth. When an external short circuit takes place, the core
cannot do otherwise but start turning in the opposite direction!
Destruction & Renewed Life
This catastrophe will not only result in the massive destruction of
life on earth, but also its continued existence, however
incomprehensible this may sound. Let me explain this.
The magnetic field of the earth is not an accident of natural
science. Its primary task is to protect us against cosmic and solar
radiation. Without this field, life is practically impossible and in
a short time, life on our planet would be extinguished. An
all-burning, deadly radioactive radiation would torment the earth's
So here we are talking about an incompatible duality: despite the
fact that a huge amount of people, animals and plants will die, life
will continue to exist, because the exhausted battery of the earth
will be reloaded by the enormous solar storm. During thousands of
years the magnetic field of the earth can therefore remain stable,
protecting the flora and fauna against the damaging radiation. While
doing this job, the inner battery of the earth will run out again
and another cycle of destruction followed by creation and mutation
will start anew.
