The sun is up to it’s old tricks. Massive solar flares are erupting from the surface of our boiling life giving furnace in the sky. We are entering another period of massive solar activity. The last period was in the nineties. This causes beautiful northern lights as solar particles bombard our atmosphere and magnetic field. It also causes disruptions in our GPS technology, communications and air travel. If the solar storms get severe enough much of our technology could be rendered useless for days on end.
