Often on the surface of the Sun, the source of heat and light on our planet. sunburst
Explosions called appear. The effects of the large-sized ones of these flares can also be felt on our planet. The last of such explosions took place in the past few days.
with Turkey time on July 3, 2021 at 17:29, The largest eruption since 2017 has occurred. A Sunspot named AR2838 was cited as the source of this explosion. NASA managed to capture images of the explosion.
Radio communication failed
US Space Weather Forecast Center, classified the eruption as a “XI class Solar event” in a statement. It was stated that with the explosion, short-term disruptions occurred in radio communication on Earth.
NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory was also able to record images of this big bang. In the prepared video, the fireball emerging from the upper right point on the Sun’s surface with the explosion can be clearly seen.
The Solar Dynamics Observatory is actually a spacecraft and in 2010 was launched by NASA to observe the Sun more closely. Similar impressive images had come from the vehicle before.
The most powerful type of explosion on the sun
Explosions in the X class are known as the most powerful explosions on the Sun. If the plasma scattered into space in these explosions moves directly towards the Earth, astronauts and satellites in space may be in danger. Even the electrical networks on earth can malfunction because of this.
Scientists consider solar flares into five different categories separates. These categories have A at the bottom and B, C, M and X explosions above that. M bursts also amplify the phenomenon known as the northern lights, resulting in impressive images.
