Fear the Sun ... Coronal Holes Threatening Birds & GPS

Recommended Posts

Should we be afraid of doom from the black holes in the Sun? 

According to the article:

"Birds flying north for the spring and humans relying on global positioning satellites to navigate could get a little lost this weekend.  Three coronal holes spread across the sun are pointing at the Earth. As a result, a minor geomagnetic storm alert has been issued for Saturday by the U.S.  Space Weather Prediction Center in Boulder, Colorado, and theSpace Weather Operations Centre of the U.K. Met Office in Exeter.  'Early on Day 3 (2nd April), a high-speed stream from coronal hole 67 is expected to reach Earth,' said the Met Office.  Forecasters in the U.S. and U.K. predict this could confuse migrating birds and other animals, cause minor problems with satellites and make an aurora visible as far south as Maine and Michigan."

Here's a supposed picture of the coronal holes:  http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-04-01/holes-in-the-sun-are-threatening-to-throw-birds-gps-off-course#media-2 

Fearing the loss of our "global positioning satellites" :qFbfZwK:, I went out just now and took a few pictures of the Sun to get a picture of our impending doom.

I can't wait for satellites to start falling from the sky. Will there be craters or will they conveniently fall into the ocean?

If you think about "coronal mass ejection" it's kinda funny like a matrix joke. If the moon is female then the sun must be male or not! This is transgender territory.

Speculations of the sex of the moon.
