Sunny Sunday

LARGE CORONAL HOLE TURNING TOWARD EARTH: A large hole in the sun’s atmosphere has formed and it is turning toward Earth. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory took this extreme ultraviolet image of the structure on Dec. 3rd:


This is a “coronal hole”–a region where the sun’s magnetic field has opened up, allowing solar wind to escape. A stream of solar wind emerging from this coronal hole could reach Earth as early as Dec. 7th and influence the near-space environment of our planet for several days. G1-class geomagnetic storms and high-latitude auroras are possible when the solar wind arrives.

      Let it be known to the Neo-fascists, real Americans are willing to fight for what is right.

      Next the fight should be to end the use of Immigration Detention Centers, Google it to see why it is so important.

    In a statement, Standing Rock Tribal Chairman Dave Archambault II applauded the news.

    “We wholeheartedly support the decision of the administration and commend with the utmost gratitude the courage it took on the part of President Obama, the Army Corps, the Department of Justice and the Department of the Interior to take steps to correct the course of history and to do the right thing,” he said.

    The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and all of Indian Country “will be forever grateful to the Obama Administration for this historic decision,” Archambault added. He noted his hope that the incoming Trump administration would respect the decision.

    “My hands go up to all the water protectors who have stood up to protect tribal treaty rights and to protect Mother Earth,” National Congress of American Indians President Brian Cladoosby said in an emailed statement. “Thank you for Standing For Standing Rock.”
