Let the Sun Shine In

Today at 6:41 PM
Eastern Daylight Time

Active Region 2192
on the surface of the Sun

erupted with another
X-Class flare
directed towards Earth.

Registering at level X1

it was weaker than
Friday's X3 flare.

Blackouts were reported

but there were no
coronal mass ejections

(or CMEs
for those in the know).

However Fox News
is now on alert

with their ongoing coverage
under the aforementioned

(and very subtle
as is their way)

"Blackout" name

as they believe Obama
is making a last-ditch effort
to usher in the Age of Aquarius

and bypassing Congress
to get it.

They are wrong

but kudos to them
for the suggestion

as such a plan would likely
be more effective.
