Did you know the sun can sing?
A secret melody emanates from its core,
but we’re too far away
(93 million miles to be exact)
to hear the sun’s song.
Researchers at Stanford University
say the sun vibrates
from a pattern of acoustical waves,
kind of like a bell,
that bounce from one side of the sun
to the other in about two hours.
By tracking movements
on the sun’s surface
with a special instrument
(ironic, I know),
it’s now possible to hear
a concert by that fireball in the sky.
The frequencies are too low
for a human to hear,
so they’ve been sped up 42,000 times
and we can now hear
My mind is officially blown.
