Thanks, I in no way meant to sensationalize anything.
Was simply browsing headlines while having coffee and saw this story.
I always find stuff like this fascinating and figured I would share.

I have learned a lot from replies, as I usually do here.

Thank you to all those who contributed.

Great post.

I am going to use this as the basis for my new 'Hollow Sun' theory.


oh lord, this made me laugh so hard

a reply to: butcherguyLmao. All our greenhouse gasses are making the sun cooler! Ohhh no we're all gonna die, need dat carbon tax! Look we have pictures. That dark spot is proof the sun is cooling from our butt stink and people not hugging enough trees! RUN FOR THE #ING HILLS, MAN!

Don't you think it would be all over the news and internet if it was? Seriously, do you have any idea how silly that question is on many levels.

What is the mystery here?

Coronal holes aren't particularly mysterious, nor do they pose a threat to us.

Everything about the sun is mysterious, unless you are god I suppose than maybe there are no mysteries for you!

The holes may well affect the Earth and all of the planets.




Holes in Sun's Surface Affect Earth's Climate
The scientists compared the Earth's temperature with the size of coronal holes reported on the Sun during a two-decade period, starting in January 1979 and ending April 1998. Results show a clear drop in terrestrial atmospheric temperature after the Sun's magnetic field activity is most intense. At this point, there is a dropping off of magnetic activity and an enlargement of the coronal holes. "This is the first time anyone has combined these modern, reliable data sets to link solar activity and climate, and to cite several alternative mechanisms that might explain this link," Posmentier explained.

A coronal hole is only a "hole" in the outer atmosphere of the sun.


ONLY? You do like to simplify something tremendous and very mysterious.



It is a dark region where the Sun's magnetic field is more open and emits high-speed solar wind. Auroras may be on tap for Earth as a result .Credit: NASA / SDO




Coronal holes are another source of ejection. Because of their open magnetic field structure, they act as conduits for steady streams of plasma from the sun.

wow, someone needs to lighten up.
It was said tongue in cheek, but if you feel better ripping my statement apart more power to ya.

Just remember, planet X isn't in the MSM. sarc/btw, for anyone wanting to rip that apart.

I'm not then brightest star in the cosmos, but I would say the sun is having a grizzle or taking a coronial dump.

I guess we'll see what happens in the Antarctic over the coming days, my guess.

I didn't know about these. I would say, "Still too hot to the touch."

aurora night youtu.be... of 4 to 5 for Murmansk is not rare but observed and in the Leningrad region

Is something that size common.


Not common as such, but not particularly unheard of either.

Remember a few years ago there was a very unusual coronal hole in Sol?

It was very unusual because it was a gigantic triangle smack in the centre of the Sun.

ROFL coronal holes don't affect the earth?!?

It's Hellmet time. Be ready to be blown of your stems in the coming years...

I don't think anyone said coronal holes don't affect the earth, rather, they're of no threat to earth.
