The sun was ‘smiling’ in a NASA photo. It might be a warning for Earth

JayMak

It turns out that anyone who drew a smiley-faced sun as a kid has been scientifically proved – somewhat – right. Last week, NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory captured an image of the biggest object in our solar system looking like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from “Ghostbusters,” the baby-faced “Teletubbies” sun or a jack-o’-lantern (if you’re into the Halloween spirit).

 

But what looks like a Scrub Daddy sponge set ablaze might not be as cute as it appears. For us here on Earth, the solar emoji could produce a beautiful aurora sighting – or it could signal problems for the planet’s telecommunications systems.
