From link - BOULDER, Colo. — A devastating solar storm could send mankind back to the dark ages, according to new research. Researchers from the University of Colorado-Boulder say astronomers spotted a powerful version of this stellar phenomenon for the first time in a star system just 100 light years away. The team describes that sun’s spectacular fireworks show as “troubling” and warn that a similar event could hit Earth. The study suggests that such a solar flare would fry satellites in orbit and crash power grids which serve entire cities — causing widespread blackouts and knocking out phone networks.
The star is named EK Draconis – Latin for dragon – and it is essentially breathing fire. Researchers say it lies in the constellation of Draco in the far northern sky. Known as a coronal mass ejection (CME), stars regularly shoot out clouds of extremely hot particles (plasma) that hurtle through space at tremendous speeds. In our solar system, this is potentially bad news. Every 100 years or so, the Sun releases these clouds in our direction. “Coronal mass ejections can have a serious impact on Earth and human society,” says co-author Dr. Yuta Notsu in a university release.
Then overnight and today the devastating storms and tornadoes across the middle of the US. The headline on one article said this: At least 70 are killed by EIGHTEEN tornadoes in Kentucky's deadliest storm in 130 years: More than 100 deaths expected across six states as twisters level entire towns.
Are they related? Did the reenactment have anything to do with what happened in the stars and on Earth or is it just coincidence?
[Edit] the number of tornadoes has now been updated to 33 according to the weather channel.
I remember the Kansas storms from when I was a child. Each springtime they would produce tornados that ravaged the small towns and stuck terror into the people; but never a storm in December other than snow or ice.
Now I live in Idaho and the fall season extends through December; for the past few years. No hard freezes yet to make our days miserable.
I remember that Halloween would often be a snow day, but not now.
The worlds climate is clearly changing and for some good, and others bad. Thus, the people of the world can clearly see that something is changing. And, as we know, these changes are simply indicators that the Savior's return is close at hand.
Draw close to the Savior as often as possible for His loving reassurance that everything is in His hands. My prayers for those those who were hit by the tornados.
What's happening in the climate is that it's getting cold later in the year, but also thawing later.
socalexile and boraddict , I've thought for more than a few years that the seasons seem to be shifting. Does it possibly have to do with the shifting of the north pole? The pole has been shifting slowly to us, but historically very fast. My question to everyone is does that affect the Jewish festivals? If so, does that affect the coming of the Lord? Is that why we will not know the day or hour of the coming of the Lord?
Matthew 24:42 Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming.
Is God shifting the seasons not only so the world cannot do counts regarding the seasons/festivals, but also so satan himself cannot figure it? God is in control.
Not exactly where I'd thought this discussion would go, but praise God, Let's think about that. I'll start a new discussion thread in Signs on Earth. I'd be interested in everyone's thoughts. Thanks.
EnochWalked: It does feel like the very notion of time is being messed with, like there's a battle between the days being shortened and the days being lengthened. Perhaps Covid lockdowns have changed weather patterns? Very coincidental timing otherwise.

EnochWalked: It's really difficult to define a "neutral" stance, because children don't need to know that their teacher has a homosexual partner, but should be able to hear that a teacher believes in Jesus. Silence is itself a religious/political position.

Hischild: Encoh Walked, I am in customer service and when I tell people the date, they say, already? Time is going so fast. My standard reply is to smile and say, Yes, it is because we are getting close to the end of time/this age and Jesus is coming back soon.
