Aussie Solar Storm Pic Is Pretty And Informative

Aussie Solar Storm Pic Is Pretty And Informative


If I recall the saying correctly, “Red sky at night… mean that the sheep are on fire.”. This isn’t a case of burning quadrupeds, though, but a shot taken by NASA near Flinders of Last week’s Solar storm. And it’s not just a good looking shot.

That looks stunning, but head over to NASA’s picture site, and you not only get the full-sized version, but also mouseover awesomeness that gives you detail on what you’re actually looking at. I could stare at this image for days…
