I have reconstructed the data from this event from 12-27-2004 . Known as the Super Burst , It was from Source SGR1806-20 a ultra-magnetic neutron star -- magnetar. In this movie is the Nict Simulation for the day , And it is noteworthy that the activity that has occurred in 2009 also from a Neutron Star would suggest the recent Burst are either closer or they are stronger then this Super Burst from 2004.The magnetic field more or less snapped in a process scientists call magnetic reconnection except this was not due to the Sun but from a Cosmic Burst.The magnetic field around a neutron star -- magnetar. is about 1,000 trillion gauss, strong enough to strip information from a credit card at a distance halfway to the Moon.Gamma rays are the highest form of radiation on the electromagnetic spectrum, which includes X-rays, visible light and radio waves too.The star, named SGR 1806-20, spins once on its axis every 7.5 seconds, and it is surrounded by a magnetic field more powerful than any other object in the universe. The result of this burst saw a massive release of magnetic energy .The blast was 100 times more powerful than any other similar eruption witnessed up till now. The explosion that was halfway across the galaxy packed so much power it briefly altered Earth's upper atmosphere. The event equaled the brightness of the full Moon's reflected visible light,
