HI all,

The sun is very active and has awakened from a deep sleep. Have you ever wondered about the solar flares that reach earth? How big are they? Here is a new NASA video that shows you. Don't forget to wear your sunglasses and a cap when you go outside. We have had 3 and the big one (#3) is headed at us now. It may cause satellite malfunctions and a lot of hot weather.
