The Sun has been a mystery for centuries.
What exactly is happening on our Sun?
We now have the technology to see what is happening on the surface of the
sun thanks to these magnificent satellites SOHO, Stereo A and B, and ACE.
Our Sun is not as calm as it appears.
With this new technology we have discovered a phenomenon called
We also discovered what is known as the Solar Winds.
We are able to witness massive eruptions on the sun
known as CME’s (Coronal Mass Ejections) in real time.
These massive eruptions effect our entire solar system
Earth sometimes finds itself directly in the path of those massive eruptions on
When those solar particles reach Earth and penetrate our atmosphere we are
treated to a spectacular light show.
This light show is referred to by a few different names the Aurora Borealis,
Northern Lights, and Southern Lights depending on where you live. .
The Northern and Southern lights occur when the solar wind particles are brought
into Earth’s atmosphere.
Earth’s Magnetic Field does its best to protect us from dangerous
particles from the Sun.
The Solar Wind reaches out to Saturn and produces the same light show as on
Earth only on a much grander scale.
The Solar Winds and CME’s are a huge threat to us all.
Solar Flares and CME’s can knock out our power for days and maybe even years.
You can never prepare yourself for what the Sun is going to throw at us. Make sure
you stock up on key items.
In the event of a total power loss the most important thing next to water is food.
Non perishable foods that can last for months or even years.
Don’t wait until a solar disaster happens to prepare chances are you’ll be to late.
Inform those around you of the potential dangers of the Sun and what they can do to
prepare for the worst.
