I was astonished recently to find myself able to look directly into the sun without experiencing impairment of vision as a result. I have done so many times since but there are occasions when the light is too bright. What I saw when I looked at the sun was quite awe inspiring. The outer rim would turn gold and send spirals of colour outwards and then all would be obliterated by a bright white flash. This cycle repeated and I cannot understand how this is even possible that I could have such an experience. Having said that I am aware of the existence of particles in the lower atmosphere presently that may be screening the UV light. Does anybody know of a policy to protect us from harmful solar explosions by the use of nanoparticles for example or does anybody have any explanation as to what these particles are.
