I said more or less the same thing a few pages back.We see the sun,through our atmosphere,we cant see what it really looks like and we see the sky colored blue,but it really has no color at all,its clear,invisible...

Surely this would have more to do with the make up of the Earths atmosphere, through which we view the Sun.
Have similar observations been made from above the atmosphere ? (though we can't depend upon NASA revealing such)

I find it hard to stomach that clear personal feelings and experience have to be mediated past a rearguard of zealous posters here. What tripe.
My experience is that of the OP. The Sun is different to the 70, 80s Sun.
It is more intense, it is more luminous, it beats down on you.
That is my experience, don't try to tell me it isn't.

In the past and up into the 1970's and 1980's,people were not being met with barrages of doom and gloom from every possible angle simultaneously...
people who lived in the not so long ago past,were not being relentlessly assaulted by end of the world thoughts and ideas every day of the week...
and so i wonder if we were having our minds posessed by end times notions and possibilities in the past,like we are now,would we have seen the sun as appearing to become brighter and brighter?
Meaning the more and more instilled with end times fear and panic we are made to feel,the closer we think the end of the world is upon us,the more and more the things we see and hear around us appear to be changing and moving into end of the world directions,like the sun brightening,like those ominous rumbling sounds...
Knowing that ultimately,everything is taking place inside our brains and nowhere else,within our minds,that could be whats actually going on...edit on 7-4-2012 by blocula because: (no reason given)

To the OP, I was going around last week telling people the same exact thing. The Sun is Brighter period... The notion of as you get older you become more sensitive is laughable.... I find it extremely interesting that two people can that do not know each other at all, can concieve a thought together. Then come together in the information age we have today....
The activity of the Sun over the last 11,400 years, i.e., back to the end of the last ice age on Earth, has now for the first time been reconstructed quantitatively by an international group of researchers led by Sami K. Solanki from the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research (Katlenburg-Lindau, Germany). The scientists have analyzed the radioactive isotopes in trees that lived thousands of years ago. As the scientists from Germany, Finland, and Switzerland report in the current issue of the science journal "Nature" from October 28, one needs to go back over 8,000 years in order to find a time when the Sun was, on average, as active as in the last 60 years. Based on a statistical study of earlier periods of increased solar activity, the researchers predict that the current level of high solar activity will probably continue only for a few more decades.
The research team had already in 2003 found evidence that the Sun is more active now than in the previous 1000 years. A new data set has allowed them to extend the length of the studied period of time to 11,400 years, so that the whole length of time since the last ice age could be covered. This study showed that the current episode of high solar activity since about the year 1940 is unique within the last 8000 years. This means that the Sun has produced more sunspots, but also more flares and eruptions, which eject huge gas clouds into space, than in the past. The origin and energy source of all these phenomena is the Sun's magnetic field.

Sun Energy Output At Over 1,000 Year Peak
Sami Solanki, Professor at the Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich Switzerland, says the Sun has been burning more brightly over the last 60 years than over the previous 1090 years.
“We have to acknowledge that the Sun is in a changed state. It is brighter than it was a few hundred years ago, and this brightening started relatively recently – in the last 100 to 150 years. We expect it to have an impact on global warming,” he told swissinfo.
The sun's brightness hasn't changed much over the last 20 years. But it has been brighter for the last 60 years than it has been at any time in the last 1,150 years.
According to scientists, the Sun’s radiance has changed little during this period. But looking back over 1,150 years, Solanki found the Sun had never been as bright as in the past 60 years.
The team studied sunspot data going back several hundred years. They found that a dearth of sunspots signalled a cold period - which could last up to 50 years - but that over the past century their numbers had increased as the Earth's climate grew steadily warmer. The scientists also compared data from ice samples collected during an expedition to Greenland in 1991. The most recent samples contained the lowest recorded levels of beryllium 10 for more than 1,000 years. Beryllium 10 is a particle created by cosmic rays that decreases in the Earth's atmosphere as the magnetic energy from the Sun increases. Scientists can currently trace beryllium 10 levels back 1,150 years.

Then theres the most vital possibility of all,to explain the suns apparent brightening,the fact that the sun might be starting to expand into a red giant and if it is,its goodbye to everything we've ever done and aloha to all we know,forever and ever those thing will just be gone and just imagine if humanity had only spent the last hundred years not desigining ever more effective ways to kill eachother off and engineered massive collective efforts and trillions of dollar towards weapons of war and genocide and had instead focused on working together with the same drive and determination,maybe we could have been able to save at least some of humanity,who would have than possibly been able to go to another world and begin again,far away from the unstoppable expanding red giant sun...
I have read that the sun is actually cube shaped and only appears round to our limited senses because its spinning super fast...Shattering the Cube,by Amitakh Stanford-2004 > www.canng.com...

The sun is changing yes because it is becoming a 4th dimension sun along with the rest of the solar system. You are correct about the change. Blue is more common with 4th d energy. Comment Holmes has turned into another blue star. Read tolecs work at www.andromedacouncil.com he will fill you in. Yes there is more earth changes coming how can there not be if we are changing.
