Massive X-Class Flares Strike Earth

maxresdefault

Two massive X-class solar flares have just hit the planet.  The second flare was an X9.3, the most powerful solar flare to strike earth in 20 years.  Strong’s 93 is “injustice, unrighteousness, divine disapproval.”  NASA is reporting sporadic radio and navigation blackouts across the sunlit side of the earth:

Nasa’s Space Weather Prediction Centre (SWPC) said that the energy of the flare had knocked out radio communications on Earth. It led to a ‘wide area of blackouts, loss of contact for up to an hour over [the] sunlit side of Earth’ and hit systems that are used for navigation, the agency said.

Footage of a much smaller solar flare was captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory just a few days ago.  The footage below gives you an idea of what a solar flare looks like.  The flare below pales in comparison to what happened today.
