Yet another series of solar flares(opens in new tab) series shimmied out from the sun on Friday (Aug. 26) after a dazzling show of green-hued auroras(opens in new tab) crashed through the atmosphere just days ago.
"Sunspot AR3089 is crackling with a series of intensifying M-class [moderate] solar flares," SpaceWeather.com(opens in new tab) said in a Friday update. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captured an especially powerful flare at 7:16 a.m. EDT (1116 GMT) as populations in Europe and Africa experienced a brief radio blackout.
A huge ejection of charged particles from the sun(opens in new tab), known as a coronal mass ejection, may strike our planet on Monday (Aug. 29) and spark auroras around the Arctic Circle, according to a statement(opens in new tab) from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Thanks for posting! Space weather in fascinating.
racist sun causing minorities in africa and women in europe to be hardest hit
Absence of light-out.
A shock wave about 50x the size of earth...lol
Perhaps someone can tell me how Climate Change caused this.
I still love that crackling sound.
Let me know when fake news gets knocked off the air
That flare was from man made global warming.
THIS will explain Europe’s excess deaths
“someone can tell me how Climate Change caused this.”
Well actually it was white systemic racism and colonialism that caused the flare to reach Africa.
Climate has been changing for 5 BILLION years.
That is nothing new. There are ice ages, followed by global warming, going on for Billions of years.
Only difference is man is too puny to cause climate change.
Sun is million time bigger than earth. Our climate is at the mercy of cycles of the mighty Sun.
“Well actually it was white systemic racism and colonialism that caused the flare to reach Africa.”
That makes sense - so it was re-directed by a Globalist Satellite to do most of its destruction on Africa, because most Africans are black.
I wish the sun would do something that kills fire ants.
Twisted wires take care of this.
Get a magnifier.
‘’Lashes Earth’’. Wow. That sounds Biblical.
