Right before Christmas, a gargantuan black fissure opened on the Sun

It was shaped like a question mark.

Quote:
The images that make up the animation were acquired by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory spacecraft between Dec. 18 and 22, 2017. And if you’re thinking that the question mark is some sort of optical illusion, guess again. The feature is very real: an unimaginably large fissure in the Sun’s atmosphere.
There’s nothing to be alarmed about. Features like this are completely normal. Scientists call them “coronal holes.”

Just some propaganda from that old ENRON ad campaign they asked "Why?"

“Coronal holes.” That can't be good.
