Sun to Earth “I’m going to eat you!”

Here it comes!

One of my first posts is about solar activity and its predicted increase.

Sure enough, Nasa Space Weather delivers.  On August 2nd, they noticed a giant “coronal mass ejection.”  Yesterday, on August 3rd, they confirmed that Europe was experiencing the first hit, but thankfully with no more impact than beautiful aurorae.

Hurry, if you read this in time you may have a chance to look up at the aurorae before we’re vaporized!  (just kidding… but you don’t want to miss the aurorae that should be visible all the way “down” to the Northern US.)

When you think about it… won’t that be nice?  When the final, monstrous lick of fire from the sun hits us, before we fry we’ll all see Northern Lights.  Everywhere.  That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!

I love it. The sun is spitting at us and before we die we get to see pretty lights. Works for me!
