    The soundtrack is misleading, though. It makes it seem like you’re hearing the sun, which in a vacuum, would not be possible.

    This is all the more impressive when you consider that the flaming plasma raining down on the surface is falling from a distance that looks to be about 4 times the diameter of the Earth.

    When the image of Earth is superimposed and scaled next to this massive erupting Solar flare, just imagine how much solar radiation hits/microwaves earth, from this very “average” solar/plasma flare.

    Has anyone alerted the man-made globull warming Al Gore to this “new” danger as yet?

    How many years the entire planet need to switch off their engines, in order to off-set the damage done by that one solar flare alone? The UN really need to do something now!
