    08/06/13 Sun Will Flip Its Magnetic Field Soon ~ In an event that occurs every 11 years, the magnetic field of the sun will change its polarity in a matter of months, according to info from NASA-supported observatories. The flipping of the sun's magnetic field marks the peak of the star's 11-year solar cycle and the halfway point in the sun's "solar maximum" — the peak of its solar weather cycle. "It looks like we're no more than three to four months away from a complete field reversal.” Video

    Sun's Magnetic Field Will Flip Soon. Every 11 years or so, the two hemispheres of the sun reverse their polarity, creating a ripple effect that can be felt throughout the solar system. The sun is currently going through one of those flips in its cycle. That activity affects the Earth's magnetic field, which affects technology on Earth like GPS systems and power grids. The uptick in solar activity can also create brilliant auroras on Earth and on certain planets of the solar system.

some variation of this... LOVE the yarn, not crazy about the straight line, it upsets my inner nerd.

This play is filled with good scientific information but even better, it's entertaining and fun! Summary of the Play: The Sun thinks he/she is the most important thing in the Solar System and isn't afraid to let everyone know it. With the guidance of each planet, (including Venus, the diva and Saturn, the surfer) and each solar system object, the Sun realizes in the end, that each planet, moon, asteroid, comet, etc. has value.
