The Airborne Laser May Has Risen Again Turning California Into Ashes!
The Airborne Laser program can be traced back to the Reagan years, and after billions in development dollars were spent and a custom-built 747 prototype was built, what was to be a super-weapon that could shoot down ballistic missiles over their countries of origination turned out to be a super-flop.


Now, with the drastic advances in laser capabilities over the last half-decade, the Defense Department wants to resurrect the airborne laser, albeit in a very different form. Outstream Video

APPROACHING EARTH FACING SUNSPOT AND INCREASING SOLAR ACTIVITY EXPECTED BY JULY 10, 2018


Today, the face of the sun is blank. Tomorrow, we may have a sunspot. A new active region is hiding just behind the eastern limb of the sun. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory photographed its magnetic canopy towering over the edge of the solar disk on July 7th:


At the bottom of those magnetic loops probably lies a dark sunspot, which yesterday unleashed a C-class solar flare. Solar rotation is turning the region toward Earth, and it could emerge into view as early as July 8th. Amateur astronomers with backyard solar telescopes are encouraged to monitor developments.

A potential active region will begin to turn into Earth view during the next several days. Solar activity has been stuck at quiet levels for all of 2018 so even the slightest increase in flare activity would be welcomed. More updates in the days ahead. Image by SDO/AIA.
