Provided we don't all die on Sunday...
Let's tie some stories together:
SOLAR ACTIVITY: Hours ago, something on the far side of the sun exploded and hurled a massive cloud of debris (a CME) over the eastern limb. Using a
coronagraph to block the sun's glare, the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) photographed the cloud expanding into space: Play the movie
On Dec. 21st, another solar wind stream will arrive, only this time it will hit Earth directly. The stream is spewing from a coronal hole that
straddles the sun's equator, which puts our planet squarely in the "cross hairs." The longest night of the year could be a green one; Arctic sky
watchers should be alert for auroras.
Now, if you were Israel, wanting to do a special forces attack on Iran's nuclear facilities, complete with NVGs, when might be a good time to do
Perhaps after satellites are damaged and there's massive communication & electrical failures on the surface of the earth, on the shortest day
of the year (winter solstice) — while your submarines rests shielded underwater, waiting for the solar storm to pass.
“Could Israel use submarines against Iran?”
“Israeli sub sighted near Arabian Sea”
“Islamabad (12/16/08) Authoritative sources have reported that unidentified sub-marine was sighted in the Arabian Sea several kilometres
away from Balochistan coast and sources claimed that submarine in question was most probably from Israel.
“... The Israeli (Dolphin class) submarine can carry a team of special operation forces and travels at maximum speeds of 20 knots with a
cruising range of 4,500 nautical miles. The vessel is also equipped with 10 torpedo tubes and is capable of launching Harpoon missiles.”
FYI, Balochistan borders Iran immediately to the east.
P.S. -- We may want to watch ourselves here in the US, too: we could be vulnerable to an attack by air, land or sea ourselves!
