Turns Out Solar Flares Caused A Bunch Of Mines To Explode During The Vietnam War
In 1972, during the Vietnam War, pilots watched the unexplained explosions of 20 to 25 sea mines for around a 30 second period.
????And a new declassified report by the U.S. Navy says that extreme solar activity rom the sun is the likely cause.
????Many of the mines were designed to detonate when they detected changed in the magnetic field.????And in the early August of 1972, we saw some of the most intense solar activity ever recorded that set off a series of powerful solar flares among other things.
????And the report suggests that there is a high probability the mines were detonated by the solar storm activity.
????Obviously understanding the cause for the explosions is very useful in preparing for the effect that future extreme solar activity has on certain weapons.
