It is incredible to think what is hovering above us without us knowing about it! Congratulations Sydney Uni student Cleo Loi!
Yesterday's confirmation by a young Aussie scientist that we have gigantic plasma tubes hovering and moving above Earth sent me on a NASA search to see what they had known about these tubes previously.
Along the way I found this 2008 article that has just made my solar-flare loving self so happy, and explains even more why we can all feel solar activity so acutely so quickly: Magnetic portals connect our Earth to the Sun, and they open every 8 min! How much do you love that?!!! It's no longer a matter of 'imagine a portal linking you to the Sun' ...there IS a portal!!!
