Planetary Solar Mirrors
By Guy Cramer
A recent story on Space.com titled, "Natural Space Mirrors Reflect Sun's Hidden Outbursts" discusses using Jupiter and Saturn as remote-sensing tools to monitor the opposite side of the Sun based on the reflection of solar X-rays off these planets back towards Earth if the sun is in-between the planets. The research was detailed in the May 10, 2005 issue of the journal Astrophysical Journal Letters. A few months previous a similar report from Space.com discussed "Jupiter Acts as Giant Mirror to Sun's Back-Side Activity" The study was funded by the Particle Physics and Astronomy Research Council (PPARC).

ago Solar Shock Wave Events
and Solar Shock Wave Jan 29,
Eventually someone will take us seriously, it may just take awhile for the rest of the scientific community to catch up.
