As the sun enters the peak of its solar maxima phase in 2013, watch for solar flare news and solar storm warnings on the news online at Solar Wachers, at NOAA, and at other space weather and solar news related websites.
Solar flares can produce strong solar magnetic storms which can affect the electrical power grid on Earth and communication satellites in space and even cause health hazards. But we love the beautiful yet dangerous aurorae they also produce.
To know more about the sun and how it works and how it affects the Earth read the book, Sounds of the Sun, The Story of the Coming Three Days of Darkness.
