Absolute co-incidence that I wrote the post on Aurora Borealis last night and today I hear about the solar flares hitting earth! The anxious me has already imagined 10 horrible world-end scenarious but for the time being, I’m going to shut it and think about the gorgeous Aurora Borealis videography I’ll be able to watch!
Below is a picture of our Sun right before the solar flare.
Once again, these events show us just how insignificant and helpless we are in front of the universe! Like we are carefully moving forward, balancing ourselves on threads that could snap any second, but they don’t.
Head over to Sky for more information on the solar flares.
