I would think we would see a burned out dark star coming, if it was close enough to do that to the solar wind. Unless that is a glitch, that is some serious ship. Ive viewed these before and never seen the solar wind make a pattern anywhere near this one. I wonder how far we could see a black star from?
Too many weird things at the same time. If something big is going down. This is somehow related to things going on in politics
On the plus side, we would know we are about to become extinct.

Solar wind comes from the sun. Not from behind earth.
The video is of him showing and explaining the different sat data.
He doesn't really waffle on, IMO.
No he just doesn't understand what he's seeing. Magnetic reconnection occurs in a plasma where you have opposite running magnetic field lines. Think of it as an electrical short circuit and this will always occur opposite the solar wind since that is the source of the energy. Solar flares can cause reconnection to occur in the near-Earth magnetotail (a narrow magnetic field structure located on the night side many Earth-radii away). The tenuous plasma in that region is then accelerated down magnetic field lines into the polar regions, striking Earth's atmosphere and exciting nitrogen and oxygen atoms as well as other atoms present in our atmosphere. The immediate de-excitation of these atoms then emit the wonderful and often intricate display of light we know as the aurora or northern (and southern) lights.
So what he sees is solar energy being redirected back to earth and if he understood what he was reading he would know why.

I don't suppose this would be connected to our planet rotating slightly faster last year?
Time stamp 2m 12s
And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
Exactly. And since Earth's surface at the equator is farther from the rotational axis than it is at the poles, guess what happens? The mass moves "outward" as it moves toward the equator. Again, think about a spinning ice skater extending her arms.
As the polar regions redistribute because they get warmer it causes mass to move from the polls to the equater.
The other form of resistance is arctic and antartic currents warm water causes these currents to slow down and effects the atmosphere.
The Earth spin speed changes in response to such events, in this case moving faster, to conserve angular momentum.

This is what you said.
Warm water alows the earth to spin better than cold water because of its viscosity.
This is incorrect.
