Umm, that doesn't look too good. I knew it was getting a little hot in here. Just to be safe, use spf 80+

I think this is absolutely a georgous picture...until you look at what is happening here!!

"A solar flare occurs when magnetic energy that has built up in the solar atmosphere is suddenly released. Radiation is emitted across virtually the entire electromagnetic spectrum, from radio waves at the long wavelength end, through optical emission to x-rays and gamma rays at the short wavelength end. The amount of energy released is the equivalent of millions of 100-megaton hydrogen bombs exploding at the same time! This gas normally has a temperature of a few million degrees Kelvin. Inside a flare, the temperature typically reaches 10 or 20 million degrees Kelvin, and can be as high as 100 million degrees Kelvin.
These happen in 11 year cycles occuring all the time just at different strengths."

Sounds like it could seriously be doing some damage to earth doesnt it??!!

This is not good, hopefully a miracle happens and we cool off. We already live in Las Vegas, we don't need to get any hotter.
