As soon as a huge sunspot is detected last weekend, a large solar flare can hit the Earth. According to spaceweather.com, the sunspot in question, designated AR3038, looked “big” on Sunday, but by Monday it was really “huge”. As the New York Post points out, M-class solar flares are the second strongest type of such event, but it will probably lead to a short radio outage. “Solar flares can occur temporarily. NASA pointed out in 2013 that” the explosive heat of solar flares cannot do that, “changing the upper atmosphere, for example. Signal transmission from GPS satellites to the earth causes confusion. All the way to our earth. “

Sun, solar flare, outlook

The already large sunspots have clearly doubled in just 24 hours from Sunday to Monday.

As soon as a large sunspot is detected last weekend, a large solar flare can hit the Earth.

According to spaceweather.com, the sunspot in question, designated AR3038, looked “big” on Sunday, but by Monday it really became “huge” and “doubled in size” in 24 hours. ..

“The AR3038 has an unstable’beta-gamma’magnetic field that harbors the energy of M-class solar flares and faces the Earth directly,” the website said.

However, as the New York Post points out, M-class solar flares are the second strongest type of such event, which will probably lead to short radio outages.

“Solar flares can temporarily change the upper atmosphere, causing confusion, for example, the transmission of signals from GPS satellites to Earth, which can be yard away,” NASA explained in 2013. The explosive heat of flares cannot reach our planet. “
