The continuing cycle, every eleven years, of Solar storms are hitting the Earth, vast flares leaping out into space from the Sun, visit the NASA site and see these amazing photo’s of nature’s energy pouring towards the Earth. The aurora borealis is visible in the UK.
Large amounts of energy are hitting our magnetic fields causing disturbances as the power is absorbed and spread around the Earth’s natural defences. But these immense amounts of energy affect our weather patterns, there will be further major climatic disruptions, do not put your snowploughs away just yet.
The Sun is our friend and enemy at the same time. If nature had not provided the Earth with these magnetic defences the energy from the Sun would kill all of us, another reason to thank our planet for protecting us.
