Sun Produces Another Monster Flare!

Those who see the concert of the Universe, who read Genesis and see that God put the Sun up there both to mark the day and "for signs" will no doubt see that all of this solar activity is a portent of something big that is about to happen.

To the rest, it will be pointed out that this happens all the time but then so do earth changing events!

From BBC NEWS | Science/Nature | Sun produces monster solar flare:

"The Sun has unleashed its largest recorded solar flare, capping 10 days of unprecedented activity for the star.

The blast sent billions of tonnes of superhot gas into space - some of it directed towards our planet.

Scientists say the Sun's current spate of activity has produced the most dramatic events seen on the solar surface since regular monitoring began.

Space weather forecasters have been kept busy tracking the impact of geomagnetic storms on the Earth.
