The Sun ate at taco bell...

(And yes... a direct burst would release intense amounts of solar radiation and ionized particles. You'd have a wonderful light show from the northern lights (that would extend WAY south), and possible heavy and prolonged interruption of radio communications of various sorts.)

Further proof of alien weapons testing.

Good thing we are so primitive, maybe they will leave us alone and just study us from a distance.

This is the sort of thing I was really wondering about. I mean, that explosion was many times the size of the Earth itself.

For now... :ninja:

That was real time?

Looking at the timestamp in the video, no. It looks like from start to finish it's a couple hours. Mostly depending on what you call "finish".

Also, scale:
