|Venus passes directly between the Sun and Earth.|
According to Mayan prophecy the year 2012 has a special significance. In June of 2012 one of the rarest astronomical events occurred. Venus passed directly between the Sun and Earth heralding,
on December 21, 2012,
"the end" and the return of the “feathered snake God” Kukulcan.
The question on the minds of many: “The end of what?” The world and/or all of mankind? Elders, Mayan and Hopi, believe the "end" is not necessarily the end of the world but rather
the end of an era – a transformation. The elders explanation doesn't offer much
clarification. Is it a physical transformation, a spiritual transformation or perhaps both? Mainstream scholars
have not “bought into” the prognostications put forth by the Mayans and others
- but what do mainstream scholars have to say about current known threats to

According to scientists who study the star's activity our sun is currently in Solar Cycle 24 and it is expected to last through 2013. Powerful solar flares release waves of radiation into space and can release bubbles of "charged plasma", Coronal Mass Ejections said to travel at millions of miles per hour, which can cause geomagnetic storms that disrupt radio communication, power grids and cause unusual displays of northern and southern "lights". According to Planetsave, “A powerful X-Class solar flare exploded from the Sun on
October 22, 2012. It released large amounts of radiation, some of
which has already caused a minor radio blackout here on Earth.”. It seems that disruptions are
not widely reported – you have to search for them. One wonders “Why?” as this seems to be a "news worthy" event - more so than the latest exploits of the Kardashian girls.
The largest known solar flare was produced by a powerful solar storm known as the Carrington event. It occurred in 1859 during Solar Cycle 10. The solar flare caused a major “CME” and a magnetic storm that struck earth. The geomagnetic disturbances were strong enough to cause the failure of telegraph systems all over
and North America. USA telegraph operators reported
sparks leaping from their equipment and some bursting into flames.
Northern lights, some bright enough to read by, were reported as far south as
and Cuba , while southern lights
were seen as far north as Honolulu . Santiago, Chile

EIA) there are 65 commercially operated nuclear power plants with 104 nuclear reactors in 31 states around the country. Thirty-six of the plants have two or more reactors. Benjamin K. Sovakool reports that there has been 99 nuclear accidents from 1952 to 2009. All of the nuclear power plants have redundant safe guards and back up power systems. The probability of an incident leading to a core melt down is statistically very small. Not a very comforting fact if you were one of the 350,000 people who were evacuated or one of the 4,000 plus people who had died as a result of the Chernobyl melt down. Nor is it a comforting fact when you think about the Carrington event and how the solar storm caused power surges in telegraph equipment - causing some of them to burst into flames. The 1989 solar storm that fried transformers in Quebec clearly reflects their destructive power and the possibility that Solar Cycle 24 could unleash CMEs that are capable of triggering the catastrophic event - bringing about the end of our "modern day" world.
