From March 7th up until March 11th our sun has released an X5 flare and M6 CME and now an M8 CME. So our sun is becoming highly active once again. This is expected to continue and its becoming headline news but something else potentially quite extraordinary has happened in between these dates and Im sure this wont be seen in the main stream news.
A very observant individual has spotted a large sphere ( the size of Jupiter ) attached to our sun by a plasma type umbilical cord ?! Very odd indeed !
In the movie below the sphere appears to detach itself !
No, aliens haven't chosen a more wintry medium in which to leave their mark.
These snowy 'crop circles' are in fact the work of a lone artist who has spent hours, and a whole lot of effort, trudging around a French ski resort.
The patterns, some of which span the size of six football pitches, come in a range of designs from intricate snowflakes and spirals to cubes and rather more abstract creations.
Snow going: One of Simon Beck's wintry 'crop circles' which he created at the French ski resort of Arc2000 with a lot of dedication, patience and energy.
Cubist design: Mr Beck used a type of orienteering methodology to plot the intricate shapes before walking the lines in snowshoes.
N-ice work: Some of the designs stretch to the size of a football pitch and can take Mr Beck several hours to complete .
'The main reason for making them was because I can no longer run properly due to problems with my feet, so plodding about on level snow is the least painful way of getting exercise.
'Gradually, the reason has become photographing them, and I am considering buying a better camera.'
More of Mr Beck's handiwork can be seen on his Facebook page at www.facebook.com/snowart8848
Mountainous effort: The energy needed to create the designs could get you half way up Mount Blanc.
Good exercise: Mr Beck says setting out the design serves as the warm-up before the real effort begins to walk around it.
Snowing off online: Mr Beck has put pictures of his art on his Facebook and Yahoo Group! pages
Mr Beck, who studied Engineering Science at Oxford University, said the designs were created at the Arc2000 ski resort in Savoie, France.
Many take as long as five hours to construct and can equal the effort needed to climb halfway up Mount Blanc, he said.
He added: 'I usually keep at it until I get too tired, using a headlamp if it gets dark first. It takes typically five hours until I can't go on, but that can depend.
'The setting-out serves as the warm-up then the real training is completing the design. Once this second stage is started, I put on my personal stereo.'
Therapy: Mr Beck said the main reason for making the patterns was because he can no longer run properly due to problems with his feet, so he took to the snow instead.
Otherworldly: At first glance, some of these designs may send paranormal enthusiasts into a spin as they look remarkably like those of their crop-circle cousins.
Eye for style: Mr Beck said he initially set out on his artistic pursuits for fitness, but he says its now as much about taking the pictures afterwards.
Spiralling hobby: Another of Mr Beck's creations
Does this look familiar - remember crop circles from 2010 ?
And here's the man himself...

Close encounters of the Home Counties kind: Two 'alien aircraft' sightings in one week in 'UK's UFO hotspot'

They hover in close formation against the backdrop of a cloudy Kent sky.
The two mysterious bright lights were photographed on January 6 floating over Chatham.
Less than a week later four similar lights were seen over Essex, shining brightly against the dawn.
The remarkable sightings were made just 30 miles apart in an area now dubbed the country's UFO hotspot.
The first image was captured by Ernestas Griksas, 21, who was taking a picture of a cherry-picker outside his home in Chatham at around 1pm.
Unexplained: These two bright discs were seen over Chatham in Kent on January 6
Double trouble: A week later these four glowing discs were seen 30 miles away in the sky over Essex
When he looked at the image afterwards he saw the bright disc-shaped objects.
He told the Sun: 'There are two white discs I can't explain. I'm nowhere near a flightpath. One is slightly fainter as if it is further away or going at a different speed.'
The second sighting came last Friday at 7am when car salesman Josh Cummins spotted four bright objects in the sky as he drove to work through Loughton, in Essex.
Mr Cummins, 21, told the newspaper: 'I nearly crashed. I stopped to take this picture with my mobile. It was like the UFOs were surfing the clouds. They were there for 15 seconds then vanished.
'I wasn't a believer in UFOs but this made me think again.'
UFO fanatics will no doubt lay claim to the sightings as evidence to support their theories of alien life.
Expert Nick Pope said: 'Assuming the images are genuine, they're interesting, though the smaller objects (in the first picture) weren't seen at the time, which raises the possibility of some glitch with the camera.
'As for the large one, I'm not sure. It might be some sort of atmospheric plasma phenomenon, but it's difficult to say.
He added: 'The South-East does seem to be a hotspot at present. I'm not sure why.
'One possibility is that it's a self-fulfilling prophesy, where one media report smokes out more from the same area.
'Another is that it's a consequence of population density as there are more potential witnesses if there's anything odd in the sky.'
Both sightings were about 75 miles, as the crow flies, from Rendlesham Forest, in Suffolk, which became known as the UK's Roswell after a group of servicemen went into the forest to investigate some mysterious lights and came out convinced they had seen seen an alien spacecraft.
Meanwhile, TV presenter Chris Evans reported an unexplained sighting yesterday.
He tweeted: 'Approx 40 mins ago went out to walk the dog. Something passed overhead - alight, too low for a shooting star and then disappeared. Berkshire.'
He added: 'Looked too fast for a Chinese Lantern. Hope it was something exciting.'
Sightings of strange objects in the sky are often explained away as aircraft, reflections in camera lenses, satellites, flares and ball lightning, among other phenonmena.

The US government has formally denied that it has any knowledge of contact with extraterrestrial life.
The announcement came as a response to submissions to the We The People website, which promises to address any petition that gains 5,000 signatories.
Two petitions called for disclosure of government information on ETs and an acknowledgement of any contact.
The White House responded that there was "no evidence that any life exists outside our planet".
More than 17,000 citizens joined the two petitions, and the White House has since amended the requirements for response to a minimum of 25,000 signatories.
"The US government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race," wrote space policy expert Phil Larson of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.
"In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public's eye."
The post went on to outline the efforts that are underway that may add evidence to the debate, namely the space missions Kepler and the Mars Science Laboratory.
Kepler is searching for Earth-like planets around far-flung stars, and the Mars Science Laboratory will sample the Red Planet's geology looking for the building blocks of life - though it will not explicitly look for life itself.
Perhaps the most famous effort in the hunt for alien life is the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (Seti), once funded in part by US space agency Nasa, which continues to listen to and look around the cosmos for signs of intelligent civilisations elsewhere.
Mr Larson summarised the numbers game that a hunt for ETs necessarily entails.
"Many scientists and mathematicians have looked... at the question of whether life likely exists beyond Earth, and have come to the conclusion that the odds are pretty high that somewhere among the trillions and trillions of stars in the Universe there is a planet other than ours that is home to life," he wrote.
"Many have also noted, however, that the odds of us making contact with any of them - especially any intelligent ones - are extremely small, given the distances involved."
