Flare



Solar storm,
Racing
Towards Earth.


Solar storm
Growing,
Speeding,
Outward from the sun.


Dazzling auroras,
Northern Lights,
Will peak tonight.
But a full moon
Will make them harder to see.

The solar storm may disrupt power grids, GPS, and cell phone service, and may also force the rerouting of some flights to avoid high levels of radiation. Our lives are always subject to natural forces. Enjoy the show.
