I look at it like this;  If the Sun is going to go there is not anything we can do about it, so why worry?  Personally, if it is going to go, I hope it does it before April 15.

If it makes you feel any better, I hear taxes aren't due until April 17th this year.   :cheers:

Wow, Skuzzy, I never knew that you were into astronomy.  I was wondering how it got that shape.

I have a simply view of unusual sun activity... It is what it is and if it isn't a good thing, well, we're SOL....  ;)

William Herschel

His Genius Changed the World Because

He discovered Uranus, Oberon and Titania

But He Was Also Convinced of This handsomehunk Theory:

The sun's surface is cool, and inhabited by aliens with enormous heads.

William Herschel was a prominent astronomer in the late 1700s whose homemade telescopes utilized new principles still used today. By 1790, his discovery of Uranus and several of Saturn's moons placed him at the forefront of his field. So it was with great reverence that the scientific community regarded his 1795 paper, "On the Nature of the Sun and Fixed Stars." That is, until everyone realized that it was a bunch of impossible hogwash.

For starters, Herschel claimed that, although it certainly did look like a blistering ball of angry fire, the sun was cool on the surface. The discrepancy, Herschel claimed, was due to, like, clouds and stuff.



You can't see it because of all the fire,
but it's actually raining

Herschel was also obsessed with the notion that all planets were habitable and probably house aliens. Since he considered the sun to be a planet, Herschel explained that aliens on the sun would have to have special body parts to deal with all the sunshine. According to Herschel's calculations (yes, he actually sat down and tried to work this out on paper), anyone with a normal-sized head would explode on the sun. Which pretty much resembles all of our doodles from grade school. An alien on the sun, Herschel reasoned, would have to have a huge head so it wouldn't explode.



They must not have any eyes, because of
the constant blinding light surrounding them.

Herschel's assertions were placed under the scrutinizing eye of the astronomy community. Within 50 years, nearly all of his wild claims about Planet Sun would be disproved. We can only assume his claims were the result of staring at the sun with a giant telescope.


He saw it coming over 2 centuries ago.  It's time to surrender and hide the women.

For some other famous people.
