A large hole capable of generating solar winds north of a million miles per hour has appeared on the surface of the sun for the second time in a week. It is known as a coronal hole - and this one is 20 times bigger than Earth. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory spotted it, and it could send superfast solar winds of 1.8 million miles per hour hurtling towards our planet as early as Thursday.

The phrase about a mother’s work never being done is epitomized in footage shared to Instagram on March 28 from South Lake Tahoe, California, showing a black bear “mom” gathering insulation for her den, as her “cubs complain” in the background.The footage, captured by nature enthusiast Toogee Sielsch, is timestamped as being taken on March 27 and shows the bear paw at shrubbery while faint calls from the background can be heard.“Mom knows a cold, snowy, and windy storm is about to move through and does her best to gather some more bedding/insulation for her seven-to-eight-week-old cubs,” commented Sielsch on his Instagram post.“Turn up the sound and hear the cubs complain while mom is working hard to keep them protected,” he adds. A “dynamic winter storm” was forecast in the region on the evening of March 27.Sielsch has been documenting the life of the bear and her cubs over a number of recent Instagram posts, and regularly shares footage of South Lake Tahoe’s bear population.

A huge block of snow was removed from the roof of a Truckee, California, home as the Sierra Nevada mountains’ second-snowiest winter on record continued in late March.Colby Wangler recorded this video and posted it to Instagram. Wangler told Storyful his friends Brian Biega and Jimmy Haden are seen in the footage, with Biega sawing as Haden secures him from behind. Wangler said the homeowners are friends of theirs who asked them to remove the large chunk of snow.“It has been snowing in the Sierra Nevada mountains and Truckee for months now, and we are looking at the second-biggest winter on record,” Wangler said. “The house, like thousands more in the area, was experiencing severe cracking in the drywall and many other structural components. This cornice was barely attached and was a huge safety concern.”He said Biega was using an old timber saw retrofit with a shovel handle on one end to saw the cornice, and explained that he and his friends are rock and ice climbers so they “had the skills to do it safely.”The footage shows the slab of packed snow fall and crumble to the ground with a satisfying crack and thud. The UC Berkeley Central Sierra Snow Lab has recorded more than 59.4 feet of snow as of March 29, and are expecting more to come. Credit: Colby Wangler via Storyful
