It’s really bright
Ok, so you knew that, but did you know that it’s brighter than 85% of everything else in the entire Milky Way?
It’s not the brightest thing on Earth though
That record belongs to the skybeam at the Luxor Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
It was a monster
At least that’s what they used to think back in the day. One legend said it was a man with 3 eyes and 4 arms that was abandoned by his spouse for being too bright.

The proof is in the pudding
The American Revolution, French Revolution, Paris Commune, and both Russian Revolutions fell near times of maximum solar activity.
