"There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea." (Luke 21:25)
Today: Sun uncorks aurora-burnishing blast at Earth- "The sun is still on the upswing of its 11-year cycle of solar activity, with more storms expected this year through 2014." NASA reports "A long duration M-class flare began erupting on the sun at 8:42 AM ET on Thursday, January 19. The flare is shown in the above movie from the Solar Dynamics Observatory in a combination of light wavelengths. An earth-directed coronal mass ejection was associated with the solar flare. NASA's Space Weather Services estimates that it is traveling at over 630 miles per second and will reach Earth some time on Saturday, January 21, when strong geomagnetic storms are possible and viewers can be on the look out for increased aurora."
"Last year saw two solar eclipses and two lunar eclipses, meteor showers and a Sun spot cycle. One was the longest total Lunar Eclipse in 11 Years. Another was a "relatively rare lunar eclipse where the center point of Earth's shadow is on the disk." There was also a super moon where the moon appears to be bigger to the naked eye."
