Yup !! You have heard about the "man in the moon" haven't you ? But have you heard about the men in the sun who are probably emitting flares from it? Our Earth is warming up because somebody up there in the sun is throwing flares our way.
I am waiting for some warmist loony to come up with "man responsible for sun flares" pretty soon. Gonna happen. Wait and watch. It's us puny humans bringing on the global warming, not the Sun, us, us, us.
....NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory spotted the summer's first 'X' solar flare on Friday - a huge outburst from the sun right at the top of the scale.
This came on the back of 12 'M' flares in just six days, with a M6.1 flare knocking out radio signals across the planet on Thursday - hinting at the destruction the sun could reign on our technology if Earth takes a full blast across its blow.
The sunspot group behind the flares - named as AR1515 - stretches across 118,681 miles (191,000km) of the sun's surface.
This makes it's width more than 15 Earths set end to end, said NASA solar astrophysicist C. Alex Young....
And more here on stuff that happens over which we puny humans have no control whatsoever.
SCIENTISTS have captured the moment a giant solar flare from a distant star scorched one of its orbiting planets, blasting the upper atmosphere away.
NASA's Swift Telescope detected a huge X-ray flare from the star 63 light years from Earth and then the Hubble recorded the pictures as it ripped into an orbiting gas giant known as "HD 189733b".
While the planet managed to survive the experience, scientists calculated it received three million times as many X-rays as Earth receives during a solar flare.
At least 900 tonnes of gas was ejected from the planet's atmosphere per second at a speed of more than 482,803km/h.....
