WW8II-BRUCE: I have been reading and studying research papers on the sun and how it does not emit a steady flow of energy but rather blows it out in what can be called BLOBS of energy.   So when they hit earth's magnetic field that too is a lot of different BLPOBS of energy hitting at different times and angles. JUST a thought.
