I hope everyone is safe from the rages of Ophelia. Not forgetting the poor frightened animals too. xx
Hearing all the stories here. 3 people have died so far in Ireland with trees hitting cars. Can't for the life of me understand why anyone would venture out in a car in a hurricane!!!
A really strange golden hue in the atmosphere here in London. And a weird but slightly familiar smell in the air - reminds me of just before a sandstorm in Libya.

1 September 2014

The US Space Agency Nasa has released new footage showing a series of powerful solar flares.

There have been a number of eruptions on the surface of the sun in the last week.

Some have warned that this explosion of energy might have a serious impact here on earth.

The BBC's Tim Allman explains.

Fantastic footage.  Isn't it great how they are able to capture such wonders as well as explaining what it's all about.

I've always been fascinated by the Aurora Borealis (spelling?) or "Northern Lights" but never knew anything about how or why it happened.

Thanks so much for posting KK.  tacat
