We are about to go completely nuts here in the extreme north (well, below the Arctic circle but to most people this is really EXTREMELY FAR NORTH at appx 60 degrees). The craziness will take place at Holmenkollen which is one of the most famous world sports stadiums. The true soul and spirit of Norwegians will be revealed. We go bananas when it comes to skiing. That is just the way it is - it is genetic!

Here is how Google sees it:

And then one more from Renny, Both of his pictures are being used on commercial goods by the way - Congratulations, Renny. Way cool! :-)

This flare (bright white) was directed straight towards Earth. What a spectacle! :-)

Solar Flare

Flare, Flare!

Huge eruption on the Sun the other day hits our atmosphere now. Do not depend on GPS. I repeat, DO NOT DEPEND ON GPS. You will get lost. :-)

This is what space weather is about, warning us about the swarm of electrically charged particles heading our way from the Sun.
