A few days ago the Sun fired off two huge solar flares that are going to reach Earth at some point on Thursday.  It will most likely shake things up a bit, but the world is not ending.

Two of the largest solar flares of the past few years exploded out of the Sun on March 6th.  It has taken a couple of days, but these are going to be reaching the Earth on Thursday, and many suspect that it will be making a mess of power grids, radio broadcasts and possibly airplane routes.

The effects of the solar flares will last about 24 hours, but people who will need to clean up the space mess have been all alerted.  Hopefully nothing will come of this, but if it does, don't forget you can get Q103 on your phone with Radiopup and stream us online too.
