Wow! Feeling fairly tiny.

Amazing! Too bad about the music.

If the event only took a few seconds according to the video and the size of the originating event area is about several hundred Earths well, that is pretty speedy. Crossing the diameter of hundreds if not thousands of Earths in seconds is some crazy Superman stuff!

Any rocket scientists out there for a true calculation???



We are gnats.


Sun lovers should go straight to the source:
