Sun blast!

I had a sudden burst of 'Oh my Goodness, it's all so high tech' as I looked at NASA's sun burst images just now.

An intense, X-class solar flare occurred on Wednesday afternoon, originating from Active Region 2158. This is the second major flare in two days from AR2158, and could provide an intense aurora show Friday night if the associated coronal mass ejection is earth-bound. (NASA)

I come form a time of flares of the trousers not the sun - of sherbert filled flying saucers, and lego in the shape of a simple cube.

Looking at NASA images, sent by a facebook friend - wow!

I hope we get to see the aurora over the UK with our real, flesh and blood eyes tomorrow: )
