   from the bring-me-a-keiser-helmet dept.
   [1]idontneedanickname writes "The BBC is reporting about the [2]newest
   flare unleashed by the sun. According to NASA's [3]SOHO website,
   "Today word came from the [4]SEC that their best estimate was X28. We
   have a new number 1 X-ray flare for the record books." As usual there
   are magnificent images to be admired." This one's not headed straight
   for us...
