The forces of rotation caused red hot masses of stones to be torn away from the Earth and to be thrown into the ether, and this is the origin of the stars.

Where are they NOW !

Not concerned about the lack of Sunspots but more so as to where are the bats, mosquits, and flying insects in general.  Since the report of bats having a white substance on their nose and wings which seems to be the cause of their dying, I have notice that the bats normally flying in my area are no longer here.  They definately kept the mosquitos away.  Last week there were some mosquitos flying around my head (at night), that's when I noticed that the bats were gone.  A couple of nights later, no flying insects.  The street lights had no flying insects around them, nor did I see or feel them. Where are they NOW ? Does the letter "B" have anything to do with it (Bees, Bugs, Bats) and now I notice some of the birds are having fits of biting throughout their bodies.  Are they becoming victums?  Especially the Robins.  Other birds here are small, fast, colorful and seem not to be affected.  Cardinals seem to be ok as well.

Where are they NOW!

I don't know about your area, but the mosquitos are horrible in Clifton.
