Massive Solar Flare poses danger
A massive solar flarehit earth sometime 10 am tuesday ET. This poses a big danger for airline flights. A large amount of electromagnectic burst ( full of dangerous uv radiation)enter the atmosphere, putting a tough fight with our depleting ozone layer. The ozone layer is depleting from global warming. This flare is stronger that the flare since the halloween stroms of 2003. Astronomers believe that we are on the way to the 2013 peak. These types of flare will be more common and potenially more dangerous. But as we move up the scale to X Class flares we will have radio disturbance and other events like that. Astronomers say this will not cause any damage. But as a precaustion, all polar flights are re directed.
