Solar Flap

The sun has circled the center of the Milky Way about twenty-five times. Each orbit takes about 250 million years at a speed of 250 kilometers per second. The Earth and its companion planets are dragged through the cosmos without protest, although the sun absorbs the blunt of this peregrination through Space and this week a plasma cloud was flayed from the solar surface.

Probably enough energy to power the American SUV fleet through eternity or scorch our celestial home to a charred cinder.

We survived the event and continue our voyage into the heavens.

Where we stop no one knows.

Not even the Baptists.
