    Solar Flares from the Giant Sun
    Solar Flares from the Giant Sunby Dr Margaret Aranda Looking at the moon and stars, the galaxies beyond command our minds be taken from the earth to all of creation, to infinity. When the moon turns blood red, people watch. People talk. When there is a shooting comet approaching,...

    #12 @Dale Masters: I love the word you used: quiescent. It has so much onomatopoeia, and I'm going to incorporate it in my writings more. Oh! And what else was your point - little distraction there - oh! Good! 1800's was just yesterday to the sun! So he shouldn't be looking at us to be having any fire-burning fun LoL!

    #4 They happen all the time. The Carrington Event in the 1800's foreshadows what would happen if an X-flare hit us today. Luckily for us, the Sun is quiescent.

    #4 CME...I got really confused because to me CME = Continuing Medical Education for doctors. Looked it up, CME here is Coronal Mass Ejections. i'm confused again because you stated they don't happen or haven't happened for 4K years....however, this is a 2012 image of a solar eruption, not an ejection. Pray tell more. Thanks. I'm thoroughly confused and request clarification. I did not use the acronym CME in my Buzz, so that's how my confusion began. Whew!

    #5 Sweet! I'm heading right over to continue to receive the love and then share it once again! And isn't it just grand, the anticipation of it all?

    #1 Oh lol! Better watch what you're eating or drinking when I write, for surely you may have soda erupting from your nose and mouth, making great projections to the wall, your clothes, and all around you! Oh! hahahahaha! jajajaja!

    Dr @AliAnani, I note how much he has spurred many of us on to internal awareness and self-expression through writing. Furthermore, he binds our group together with his altruistic character of acceptance, love, integrity, passion, encouragement, and yes! The flame that sparks the flame in us all!
    I am very thankful and grateful to your kind words my beloved friend @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD. Your "flame" of appreciation is beyond description with its weaving a web of love to you and your great soul.
    BTW_ my newest buzz is on what Is Love? and the fklame of love here might help us in finding a "proximity" answer to this question.

    Keep the flair Margaret with your deep thinking and passion to others. Again, I am moved by your sheer and genuine love-ly love

    It's not quite likely CME would happen in the near future. No one has seen for more than 4000 yrs ......

    @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD, while I concur with your praise of the brilliant @Ali Anani, I also want to raise awareness about a certain type of solar flare for which many people are unaware: a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME). This type of solar flare can easily knock out the power grid of an entire content, shutting down the water supply, nuclear plants and all things that run on electricity. The worst possible CME can cause widespread destruction on Earth, theoretically ending human civilization. The interest point here is that one one hand, the sun gives Earth life; while on the other hand, the sun can easily disrupt or destroy life -- sending us back to the Stone Age. Just an FYI https://www.spaceweatherlive.com/en/help/what-is-a-coronal-mass-ejection-cme

    That was beautiful (light-years away from description...I gagged on my cheese laughing. Nice pun!)
    Please don't catch me unawares like that again. :)
