Specs: XP/Win7/Win8, NA
Following is a service interruption alert I received from my cable provider:

Between March 1 and March 8 you might notice a very brief interruption in TV service due to Satellite Solar Outage or Sun Outage.

What causes a sun outage?

As the sun’s path across the sky gets higher each day, there are times when it goes directly behind a TV satellite and its radiation overpowers the satellite’s signal. This results in what is called a sun outage.

What is the impact on service?

TV service will be interrupted for only a few minutes and will resume automatically. During this time, you may experience interference with picture quality and sound when watching television. Satellite sun outages do not affect internet or phone service.

When do they occur?

Since sun outages are a natural occurrence, there’s nothing we can do to prevent them. Below is when to expect TV interference:

Sunday, March 1, 2015 between 8:40 AM and 4:28 PM
Monday, March 2, 2015 between 8:37 AM and 4:56 PM
Tuesday, March 3, 2015 between 8:36 AM and 4:57 PM
Wednesday, March 4, 2015 between 8:35 AM and 4:58 PM
Thursday, March 5, 2015 between 8:34 AM and 4:58 PM
Friday, March 6, 2015 between 8:34 AM and 4:57 PM
Saturday, March 7, 2015 between 8:35 AM and 4:57 PM
Sunday, March 8, 2015 between 9:36 AM and 5:55 PM

Also watch out for an increase in reports of ufo/alien activity. They will use the "outage" to further expand their cloak 'n dagger activities, in pursuit of their goal to drain the planet of the extremely rare element "terra comonsensium" (the only element able to neutralise the side effects of exposure to the not so rare "boloneyium").

It's already been seriously depleted in the last fifty years or so, with the advance of their covert infiltration into the general day to day world via hi tech applications, tv etc..

But seriously... Tak for the info XP... Causes all manner of irritations for broadcasters. Usually they offset their dishes to in efect "skim" down the side of the satellite's signal foot print for the duration; hoping not to in effect "wreck/damage" their receivers etc.; and maintain some signal.. But even then it can restrict some "live" links/interviews/coverage.

Hey trvlr - I luv your sense of humor it caused me to ROTFLMAO!

I just realized I left out another important piece of info that we should be aware of. For geostationary satellites, solar outages occur TWICE EVERY YEAR around the equinoxes, i.e. March / April and then again in September / October. At these times of year the Sun crosses the equator and it traces an arc that places it directly behind geostationary satellites. Go HERE to read detailed scientific explanation, or HERE to just view Google images cache of TV interference due to sun outage.

Ha Ha. As it happens I do believe in UFO's. After all, anything that anyone sees in the sky and has no clue what it is fits that category. It's the alien bit that gives me problems.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Well if there are aliens, and they are smart enough to travel to earth, I am relatively certain, much of our behavior should prevent a landing;) I do have an 8" Meade telescope and I'll be the first one to play the "close encounter musical scales" for them, should a landing look inevitable;)

To err is human but to really screw things up, you need a computer!

Looks like this post is now about Aliens. Anyone know which of the following Alien/Aliens in this mugshots aims to wreck havoc with our TV signal every day for 8 days?

None of those. In fact they're already here and have been for a while.

They were smuggled in with the connivance of a BBC camera man in the 60s (who made a nice living off it too...), and carefully hidden in plain sight... Easy to tell them though; mostly look like wee small bears; their main base/HQ is near a famous London station; and they have serious aversion (dislike) of Marmite...

Earlier "visitors" - actually quite a large vanguard expedition as it were (arrived in the late 50s I think it was) - resembled wee small gnomes, and lived in odd little houses; some drove around in wee small cars (often referred to as Noddy cars). Others secreted themselves cleverly by morphing into stone or similar and hid in garden centres; were "adopted" by the gullible Terrans, and given pride of place in their gardens. When no-one is about they morph back to life and often go walkies to check out the local scenery; surveying it for the next arrivals.

I am trying to picture YOUR aliens. Do the gullible Terrans look like THIS? BTW Today (March 1 2015) is Day 1 of your Aliens misbehaving!

Those are fakes; spare parts from an olde movie props/special effects department; assembled by the gnomes and look alike bears - as a red herring to throw us off the scent of the truth...

Also note the proliferation of traffic cones and barrels across the country; the latter more common in USA and cones in the UK. The cones especially are very adept in moving themselves around; yet no-one ever sees them actually do it. Many consider these "cones/barrels" to actually be transportation/dispersal devices for the gnomes at least; whilst the bears con gullible humans to transport them about..

LOL

Fortunately we have not experienced any interference in the first three days. On the 4th day (March 4) we lost Euronews (Optimum channel 103) for a couple of minutes. This interference had no effect on other channels like CNN, WPIX, etc.

Only Euronews eh...?

Suspicious...

Is that bastion of unbiased, truly balanced, reportage/news "Fox News" behind that "outage" of a "foreign" news service one wunders... But then was the BBC overseas/international service also unaffected...?

No idea. All I did was turn on the cable TV to watch Euronews - no signal detected and switched to CNN then WPIX. I didn't try to see if Euronews was finally on the air - I had to go out.
