If you live at a high northern or southern latitude, watch for some spectacular lights in the sky Tuesday night.
The sun unleashed its strongest solar flare of the year Sunday, and the cloud of radiation it spewed will hit Earth's magnetic field Tuesday, NASA said.
NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded a brief but intense flash signaling the ejection of a cloud of ultraviolet radiation.
The source of the flare, sunspot 1158, is growing rapidly, the observatory reported.
Hey it's "The Year of the Jackpot" by Robert A Heinlein. Yahoo it..lol
Biggest solar flare of the year: It's fricking February for crying out loud.
Comcast Cable now offering specials on the basic and premium packages and is not prone to flare-outs...take that DirecTV.
Erm, Comcast uses satellite feeds to provide that coverage to your cable. Go to their office and look at the dishes.

I thought Flare was the buttons that Jennifer Aniston had to wear as a waitress in the movie "Office Space". I think it had to be a minimum of 15 pieces of Flare or Flair.
Rod Serling, a man way ahead of his time, gave us the Twilight Zone episode of the intense sunlight and the woman whose paintings were melting from the heat of the sun, there was no water to drink, and when they found her at the end, she had frozen to death.
