Sun Putting On Display of Fiery Eruptions

From Times Wire Reports

The sun fired at least three more salvos of highly charged particles toward Earth, and scientists said more explosions were likely.

The eruptions brought to six the number of huge flares noted since Wednesday, one of the most turbulent periods in solar observations since 1940.

The sunspots generating the flares, which pose no direct danger to humans, probably will rotate out of view in the next day or so, according to scientists at a Boulder, Colo., facility.
