Our Solar Fireplace

Here comes the sun!  Haven’t you noticed those lengthening days?  Groundhog Day and the Super Bowl are behind us, and winter will recede regardless of Punxatawney Phil.  Whatever the vicissitudes of the climate debate, the sun is the primary driver of both the earth’s weather and its energy supply (both stored and “online”).

Space Videos has posted this streaming replay of our luminous neighbor, filmed from the International Space Station.  The video offers some spectacular scenes of activity on the solar surface, accompanied by soothing New Age style music.  So drop by when the mood strikes you and see the sights! What is office wi-fi good for, anyway? 🙂
