No not really, but I have noticed that the sun seems to be alot brighter but that could just be my eyes.

The sun certainly seems brighter and more radiant. I haven't noticed any stinging sensation though.

Huh.... got some in my family that have been expressing the same thing lately in light of it being a good bit warmer for this time of year. Personally, I think something is/has been going on with the sun. I think it may be affecting us on some level, and maybe the entire solar system. It seems brighter and more intense to be in even if I account for the fact that summer is approaching. Buuuuuuut... that's just one tin-foily biased opinion based on my own experience amoung seven billion people on the planet.

If this is true, you should make sure that you are eating vitamin D rich foods, such as oily fish and eggs. Vitamin D is important for your immune system and bone health. As the body naturally produces it from the sun, if you don't go in the sun you run the risk of a vitamin D deficiency. I think that fears over the risk of sun damage may be leading to increased vitamin d deficiency levels in the western world. Obviously you should still be careful in the sun and avoid damaging sun burn, especially if you're sensitive to the suns rays.

In saying that, I haven't noticed any difference to the sun here in New Zealand. We had a rather wet and cold summer, but our autumn has been fantastic, and I have been outside whenever I can.

Well, there is little doubt that something "odd" is happening to the sun. This is not new. The SOHO has been monitoring this activity for several years; however, it seems to be increasing.

Yes, but I've been feeling it sting since last year.
I'm glad it's been cloudy here.

I found a blog on the subject of climate change-the article was kind of uninteresting (to me) but the comments were ...and it is from 2011, people claiming the sun was "stinging" and felt painful.

poleshift.ning.com...

These people are saying identical things and they appear to be from around the world...

It's pretty overcast here today, so I was not in much pain


So, it's not imaginary. I guess I'm less concerned about the cause than the effect. The cause is probably out of our control, but what might the Sun be doing to us as it creates the stinging sensation? I for one will not avoid sunlight. I lived in the shadows for years, fearing the Sun because of my fairness. For the past 5 years I've been exposed pretty safely and responsibly over a period of time and have never been happier. When I lived in the city and never got any sun, I was prone to bouts of depression. If it kills me, it kills me, but I'll die happy!

I was out in the yard cleaning up and planting, etc. and noticed that the sunlight "stings". It is actually painful.

Interesting thread, very interesting thread. Two pages of discussion trying to explain the mysterious phenomena of why the Sun stings and burns the skin. Gosh - the threads on ABS really are getting exciting.

i feel a difference. last year and this year is even worse. i think it's due to the atmosphere. we just aren't as protected as we used to be.

i also got a severe sunburn a month ago at 10 am. i was only out for about an hour and it wasn't even hot. now i'm super cautious outside.

That's amazing! It is so wonderful that this topic has provided you with endless hours of entertainment, I mean, wow...you haven't laughed this hard in ages?!

You really should get out more! If you get off by making fun of someone when they are just being honest & starting a conversation within a community then good luck to you cause you are definitely going to need it.

Do you guys lack melanin?

I personally don't sting in the sun, but you should start buying sunscreen or something good to protect that. I don't think the sun should sting you.

You are more than welcome. I love laughter more than just about anything. Glad to be of help.

I am glad to hear it wasn't just me.
Went outside day before yesterday and after 1 minute or so, I felt like it was already burning me. I even said out loud " wow that's weird, it burns already" I'm part native Indian, but I'm getting red after 30 minutes this year. I'm beginning to wonder what's goin on....really.

This year I have found it hard to get any kind of sun tan/burn. I have been working more outside this year than any other. Started a garden and such, been out painting the house and garage...no burns yet. I am white as the great white north so burning is usually what I do first. Last year I was having a heck of a time with my eyes and being out in the sun. This year I haven't had the same problem so....I don't know what's up, but I am enjoying it for sure.

The sun bothers me much more than it used to. I don't take any prescription medication, or do anything differently than before. I spend a good amount of time driving for work and lately even the sun shining through the windshield has been bothering me so much that I cover my arms with a light blanket. My parents are both in their 60's, they used to live on the beach and they state that they know that the sun feels much more harsh that it ever has before.

I would like to hear from any of you folks who spend a lot of time outdoors. This year since Spring has come so early, I was out in the yard cleaning up and planting, etc. and noticed that the sunlight "stings". It is actually painful. I was wondering if anyone else noticed this. I spoke to a pal of mine in TN who is a landscaper and one of his employees and he both mentioned that they had also felt this.

I looked for some information on the subject and could only find articles about sunburn. I am careful not to get burned, I had melanoma years ago. If you are out only a few minutes, it hurts. I don't remember ever experiencing this before. I'm wondering if it's just me getting old and more sensitive; something common, nothing to fret about, or WHAT!

It charges me up - we have staring contests occasionally. s/he usually wins.. well, always.

I've noticed it too and not just that, but when I go outside it actually hurts my eyes and I'm an outdoors person and never dealt with that before.

To me, the sun feels quite a bit stronger. Most of my life, I've never burned. I would have to spend at least 7 - 8 hours in direct sunlight before I did. Now, I set out reading and smoking a cigar, I notice the start of a burn after only 3 hours. The sun does have a "sting" for want of a better word.

I read somewhere that the Sun is suppose to be putting out more infrared light now then before. I think this is what the chemtrailing is about.

The Sun goes through an 11 year cycle. Try downloading a picture of the Sun (EIT 284) for the same day, every year, for the last 11 years and see the difference. (Example July 1, 2012, July 1, 2011, etc.)

I've noticed it. Since I'll be back in New Orleans soon, I dread to think of what July, August and September will feel like...last summer was so hot, you could hardly go out for long.....like 110-113 heat index.
