Solar Storm

I was watching the Science Channel recently. At times this facinates or horrifies me. This episode talked about a black hole in the sun that can’t be seen by the naked eye. Through this hole is escaping solar flares (bursts of radiation) which heads toward planet earth and can cause harm to all inhabitants. On arrival to our atmosohere, it clashes with the magnetic field at the pole. Those magical northern lights (aurora borealis) are the results.
