Quotes

"These tidal tails are thin, elongated streams of gas, dust and stars that extend away from a galaxy into space. They occur when galaxies gravitationally interact with one another, and material is sheared from the outer edges of each body and flung out into space in opposite directions, forming two tails. They almost always appear curved, so when they are seen to be relatively straight, as in this image, it is clear that we are viewing the galaxies side-on."
"It is weird, but it's not super weird," solar physicist Tony Phillips wrote on his website, Spaceweather.com, according to the Los Angeles Times. "To have a spotless day during solar maximum is odd, but thenthen again, this solar maximum we are in has been very wimpy."
All this, taking into account opinion of Phillips, only highlights how little is known of Heliophysical about what was happening on the Sun. "The main conclusion which can be drawn from this event is that we just can't predict the behavior of the Sun" , - the scientist believes...
Tony Philips, physicist and writer of spaceweather.com, told Inquistr, "It is not altogether that usual to have a Big Quiet event."
