Keeping An Eye On The Sky
Right now, as you’re reading this, the sun is going mental. I’m keen to avoid blinding you with science, but there’s no other way of saying it. It’s got the grumps, big style. In layman’s terms, it’s hurling “space nasties” right at us. If all the science nerds’ predictions are correct, it ought produce beautiful Aurora’s or “cosmic disco lights” in the night sky sometimes over the next 24 hours.
Here in the UK, we don’t get to see the aurora borealis much, if at all. Only those lucky (and freezing and isolated) souls in the Shetland Isles tend to get to see them. Seems though, if the geeks have done their sums correctly, there’s a chance almost all of the UK should get to see something green and “glowy” tomorrow night. Exciting!
I’ll keep you posted and leave you with this photo I took a moment ago of the constellation ‘Orion’. Check out his snazzy belt! Admittedly, it’s a terrible photo, but I’ll hopefully have something better tomorrow.
