Solar Storm Hits Earth! Believers In Maya Prophecies Scared!
"Our planet is being bombarded by high-energy particles unleashed by the strongest solar storm since 2005, scientists say.
The charged particles are mostly a concern for satellites - which they can disrupt - and astronauts.
But they can also cause communication problems for aircraft travelling near the poles."
The year 2012 started on an ominous note, when dead birds fell from the skies over Beebe, Arkansas for the second year in a row on New Year`s Eve.
Now our little blue planet is being bombarded by high-energy particles unleashed by the strongest solar storm since 2005.
Every event of tiny or cosmic significance is being viewed through the prism of the end of the world as we know it foretold by the Maya calendar.
This solar storm is of concern only to satellites and astronauts, scientists say that the six astronauts on the International Space Station don`t have to take any actions to protect themselves from the solar storm.
But is there going to be another solar storm in December that will destroy our communication systems and affect every person in the world?
As we approach the projected end of the world on December, 21, 2012, will there be more and more omens? It`s incumbent on the media, government and scientists to provide the public with rational explanations for these strange events to prevent hysteria and panic.
