Solar Storm

I wouldn't touch this charcoal briquette with a 149,600,000 km cattle prod.
                                             .

Cool, eh?

Link with more pictures.

  3. Hi Craig and China,

    Isn't that awesome? Mrs. UC didn't take this one. It's a NASA pic. Follow the link to see a slideshow of the badassest solar pics ever.

  5. Hi China,

    This flare was mild, 1.4 on the scale. Silicon Graybeard says we had a 5.4 in March. I think I'd miss my Innertubes if a big ol' EMT hit.

    1. Hi Lisa,

      Yes. And to think our piddly little sun is just so-so when compared to some of the monsters out there.
