More Solar Activity

Right now the sun is getting active.  What is the impact? 

The earth has entered into a busy solar cycle. 

On Sunday NASA released a video of the latest solar eruption.  It's pretty spectacular.

So, what is the impact?

As amazing as it is, the government is not anticipating serious damage.  Still, the GPS system and the power grid are being closely monitored.

If there is any impact it will be noticed on Thursday, June 9.

For more information and a very interesting video go here.
