Over the course of just one day a tiny active region grew to became almost as large as its many-days-old neighbor (Aug. 23-24, 2018). Active regions, which are areas of intense magnetism, appear brighter in wavelengths of extreme ultraviolet light and are often the source of solar storms. Credit: Solar Dynamics Observatory, NASA.
Jim Green: Well, what would happen to our technologies today if an event like that occurred?
Alex Young: Well it could be quite catastrophic and there have been studies by the National Academies, estimates certainly billions and billions of dollars of damage, estimates up to even trillions of dollars because it would have such a global impact on our technology infrastructure. We could see power outages across the globe and in interconnected power grids especially. There would also be impact to communications, but another aspect--satellites. We would possibly lose many satellites.
After much reading, researching and thinking,I am leaning toward something going on with the sun. That seems like the theory with the most evidence, including the lack of information.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has issued a storm watch for a G2-level solar storm which is considered 'moderate' on the 5-level scale (5 is the highest).
Geomagnetic storms are ranked on a severity scale, with G at the bottom, R in the middle and S at the top.

I also thought that. But, I kind of also think he is just dismissing the MSM's alien narrative. Kind of funny how out of all the theories, they choose aliens and make it seem like that's what everyone is discussing..

So maybe this is part of the footage the Director is talking about. If so, despite saying ‘unaltered’, it seems to be altered based on the modified date you found. Wasn’t there an article about something obscuring the sun a few days back? Something about the moon photobombing the sun?
