A large area appears on the Sun, where the strongest flare can occur. And it can cause a geomagnetic storm on Earth, writes ScienceAlert.
It was found that from May 24 in the coming days on the Sun you can observe the movement of a sunspot called AR3311. The sunniest spot can be seen even without a telescope.
“Sunspots are separate areas on the Sun, they are darker, so they stand out against the background of our star’s bright light. This is where the lines of force of the Sun’s magnetic field begin to change, leading to strong emissions. of energy and plasma. Such are solar flares and coronal mass ejections or plasma emissions in space,” the scientists said.
According to them, the sunspot AR3311 faces the Earth for several days, and its size is four times larger than the size of our planet. That is why it is visible to the eye. However, you must use special glasses with lenses that block 100% of our star’s ultraviolet and infrared radiation so as not to damage your eyes.
“A few days ago, a strong class M flare occurred in this sunspot, but it did not cause much trouble on Earth. But on Wednesday, May 24, there is a small possibility of a stronger flare – class X. These flares are considered the most powerful of all possible on the Sun. Even if this release of energy does not occur, such powerful flares may appear in the coming days, “said the scientists.
To recall, a group of astrophotographers produced an amazing image of the recent hybrid solar eclipse.
