Dear readers and followers,
after many rumors and hearsays on the web and social networks since the last week, +NASA confirms that NONE full day of darkness will occur this year in the days in December 21st, 22nd and 23rd. The land will NOT remain during these three days without sun. The rumor talked about a huge solar storm, but it will not be the case. There are many solar storm each months. In February 2014 a powerful X4.9-class solar flare has been recorded by NASA . This solar flare is the most intense flare of 2014 so far, and one of the most intense of the current solar cycle. Solar flare are really critical, specially for the spacecrafts orbiting Earth. Few weeks ago, the Orb-1 mission of the Antares rocket delayed due to high space radiation environment induced by a high class solar flare. Fortunately, the solar flare was not Earth directed.
The head director of +NASA Charles Bolden did a announcement witht he aim to stop the rumors and ask people to stay calm.
