I agree. But they should go at night, so it's safer...

Impossible to locate the sun during night as it emits no light.

Have to go during the day. All they need is some NASA grade sunscreen.

It is exploding all the time. but if u are referring to a super nova it will never happen, our sun isn't big enough.
and as for the time it takes to notice, the limitation is the speed of light, no signal can take less than 8 min traveling
from our sun to earth, so our sensors wouldn't know before we did anyway.

just my 2 cents

NASA already has an estimation as to when the Sun will become a red giant, which would engulf Earth.
It basically is a super slow and less intense version of a supernova.

If NASA is around that time, I'm sure they can predict exactly what time the "Red Giant Event" will begin.
In which case we would know when it starts beforehand, and 8 minutes after it started we would see the effects.

In any case, this is all besides the point.

The point I was making was that although anything we witness happening to the Sun is 8 minutes after it actually occurred, for "all intensive purposes" it actually is happening instantaneously because to us the event doesn't occur until the light from the event hits us.

they should make a movie about this......no just the earth cracking up and volcanoes....but having the sun getting biggger and biiggger and BIIGGGERRRR

then it explodes and the main characters are evaporated just after some climatic intimate notion

I was wondering if it was relativistic effects that caused the plasma to not fall in a straight line but it is just the magnetic field, pretty awesome though to see the effect of a magnetic field this way.

This is pretty cool looking, but it isn't as outrageous as Gizmodo makes it out to be, I'm pretty sure it's a fairly common occurrence.

Indeed, but it's probably very hard to record it because you can only record it when it is "at the edge" of the sun, if it is in the middle from our viewing angle then we wouldn't see much.

Would be a cool movie, but in reality the Sun will get bigger, lose mass, lose heat, and engulf our planet (without exploding). Basically our entire planet slowly melts. 99% of all life forms will be extinct due to the extreme heat before the Sun touches Earth.


Then it will eventually lose so much mass and heat it will collapse back down into a White Dwarf and produce almost no heat and gravity for the Solar System. Most of everything will become an ice ball wandering through space.
