    Default Sun will 'flip upside down' within weeks, says Nasa

    The sun is set to “flip upside down” within weeks as its magnetic field reverses polarity in an event that will send ripple effects throughout the solar system.

    Although it may sound like a catastrophic occurrence, there’s no need to run for cover. The sun switches its polarity, flipping its magnetic north and south, once every eleven years through an internal mechanism about which little is understood.

    The swap could however cause intergalactic weather fronts such as geomagnetic storms, which can interfere with satellites and cause radio blackouts.

    Nasa said in August that the change would happen in three to four months time, but it is impossible to give a more specific date. Scientist won’t know for around another three weeks whether the flip is complete.

    The impact of the transfer will be widespread as the sun’s magnetic field exerts influence well beyond Pluto, past Nasa's Voyager probes positioned near the edge of interstellar space.

    The event will be watched closely by researchers at Stanford University’s Wilcox Solar Observatory, which monitors the sun's magnetic field on a daily basis.

    Todd Hoeksema, director of the Wilcox Solar Observatory, said the polarity change is built up throughout the eleven year cycle through areas of intense magnetic activity known as sunspots which gradually move towards the poles, eroding the existing opposite polarity.

    Eventually, the magnetic field reduces to zero, before rebounding with the opposite polarity. “It's kind of like a tide coming in or going out,” Hoeksema said. “Each little wave brings a little more water in, and eventually you get to the full reversal.”

    One of the most noticeable effect on Earth will be a boost in the occurrence, range and visibility of auroras - the Northern Lights. “It’s not a catastrophic event, it’s a large scale event that has some real implications, but its not something we need to worry about,” added Hoeksema.

    OMG!! Everyone needs to go buy an electric car to keep the sun from doing what the sun.......uhh....naturally does.


    Anyway, I am glad the sunny side up flips over once in a while.
    Just go for it!

    No, it's because not enough people have signed up for Obamacare. We all have to get the word out and maybe we cane save the sun.

    Cool story. Although, I'm a bit suprised that the spinning left media hasn't really picked up on this story and tried to blame @Phil Robinson for causing this polar shift of the sun.

    God knows he shifted things on earth Tuesday!

    Obama must be enjoying the break from not being blamed for the Sun's polar shift. Goes for George W, as well. Guess ole poor Phil will be the new whipping post for the cry babies for awhile!

    Phil can handle the pressure, I'm sure!

    Well, if the sun takes after Obamacare, it won't be able to flip because it will crash instead.
