Well, going on Mayan theory, the 2012 movie (which I happened to watch yesterday for the first time) and recent sunspot activity I’d say 2012! But, honestly… I’m not a scientist, a geologist or anything like that. The eruptions from the sun must be doing something to our planet, whether it’s as serious as the 2012 movie portrays it, I have no idea. We’re not near the peak of sunspot activity for this cycle. Either something like sun activity or world leaders blowing the hell out of the world will be the end.

Solar activity has been low for weeks, but a new active region on the far side of the sun appears set to break the spell of quiet. For the past two days it has exploded repeatedly, hurling bright coronal mass ejections into space and sending shock waves billowing through the sun’s atmosphere. Although the region cannot be seen directly from Earth, NASA’s STEREO-B spacecraft, stationed over the sun’s eastern horizon, has a great view. Visit http://spaceweather.com for movies and updates as this region turns toward our planet in the days ahead.
