Heavenly fireworks

A reader sent:

Father Z – – there were three spectacular coronal mass ejections
(CMEs) today, right on cue for the anniversary of Our Lady of
Guadalupe and Gaudete Sunday!!

Note the symmetry!! Looks like an angel?? The heavens proclaim the Glory of God!!


Sadly, I don’t think we are going to get any Northern Lights from these… nor are our electronics going to be fried or our brains melted.

    The one on the right looks like a baby developing in the womb. Fantastic.

    It does sort of look like an angel if you tilt your head and squint.

    Tonight (December 13) is the Geminid meteor showers. Look east to the constellation Gemini.

    Geminids were sort of a bust here. Maybe 4-5 in half an hour. Of course the Atlanta metro light pollution extends way out into the country now.
