"Forecasters keep eye on looming 'Solar Max'"


 
Hey John and all Doves,
 

First time poster here.  I really enjoy your site!  I’ve been reading it since I first found it back in October of this year.   Anyway, I came across this article on yahoo:  “Forecasters keep eye on looming ‘Solar Max’
 

http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20101229/sc_afp/sciencespacesuntelecoms

 

The following quote from the article caught my eye:  “In 2005, X-rays from a solar storm disrupted satellite-to-ground communications and GPS signals for about 10 minutes.”

This immediately made me think of Revelation 8:1 (NIV) : “When he opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.”

I’m not sure if it means anything or not, but I thought it was interesting.  I always thought that this verse meant actual silence in heaven with the angels and everyone else, but I know that sometimes ‘heaven’ can be interpreted in scripture as the sky/atmosphere, is that the case here?   I don’t know for sure, but it’s an interesting thought.

These are exciting times!

Love In Christ,

Matt
