So it's a Death Star?

I'm torn, because this could disrupt electronic communication. Meaning a disruption in Trump Tweets. And I can't decide if that's good, or too soon,

A HUGE hole has opened up on the surface of the sun, leaving the Earth vulnerable to solar winds which could cause making disruption to technology.


Come here and let me give YOU a coronal hole, Sean Martin.

there's a little black spot on the sun today?

So, the sun is farting in our general direction?

As IT, I'm getting a kick, as I'll be able to use this as a fallback excuse if everything else hits the fan tomorrow.

A Carrington Event? Oh please oh please oh please. This world needs a culling when society breaks down.

Does anyone else find it unusual to see the word "huge" not spelled as "yuge"?

It's just the soul of Ronnie James Dio wanting to be free. This too shall pass.

♫Solar winds, are blowin'
Neutron star, controllin'
All is lost, doomed and tossed, at what cost forever
Meteors fly around me
Comets die, and then they
And then they, you want to see how they try to surround me
I can say, here today, we shall stay forever
If you want to find us in a hurry
Oh let me tell you don't you worry
I can't say, here today, we shall stay forever♪♫

This is fark... we worry about things like this.

What the sun giveth, the sun taketh away.  Enhanced auroral propagation!  Time to haul out the 6 and 2 meter all-mode rigs.

Can solar wind wash away the rain? I'm not too clear on the physics there.

It's a large hot ball of fusing hydrogen mostly, but that's not important right now.

I thought those winds usually came from Uranus..

So, the sun is aiming it's ass towards us, and lighting it's farts?  Dunno if I should laugh or be worried.  Think I'll have another drink instead.
 
2017-01-11 08:57:47 PM  
It's like a celestial golden shower.

Blake and Krystle's wedding might have seemed opulent, but Alexis' marriage to King Galen of Maldavia had a better band, a moister cake, and some very swanky gift bags.

A SOLAR eclipse in August this year will bring with it the end of times, a group of Christians have claimed.

I'm pretty certain that "huge" is the archaic spelling.  It has always been "yuge".
