In Which I Indulge In Solar Physics From My Patio

My iPod Touch has brought me lots of fun,
Podcasts and tweets al fresco, but there's more,
For 'mongst the apps I've got is 3D Sun
(I went a little crazy at the store
This first month). Each new day, my gadget brings
New data from our two STEREO probes
That orbit Sol, our star. They snoop on things
That once were stellar secrets. How the lobes
Of my brain light up like a solar flare
(Occipital, parietal and, indeed
The frontal, too!) whenever I look there!
Auroras and coronal masses! Need
I say more? Just today, for me to crave
The program played some wild sunspot shortwave!
