A massive solar flare affecting the Earth has caused problems ranging from power outages in some areas. This massive explosion was captured by the Solar Dynamics Observatory.
There was a strong solar flare on March 28, 2023. This event caused some limited and temporary radio interference and occasional power outages in the sunny part of our planet. Asia and Oceania were located in the affected area at the time of the incident.
These explosions are the most powerful explosion class according to the logarithmic classification that divides explosions into classes A, B, C, M or X. He was in the X class . X is ten times as big as M and M is ten times as big as C, but any C explosions or lower class explosions won’t affect Earth. The most recent explosion It was the X1.2 explosion.While this eruption is quite large, it’s not one of the most powerful we’ve seen in this solar cycle, especially in the last few months.
If you think you’ve seen a lot of news about explosions, coronal mass ejections and holes in the Sun lately, it’s because the Sun is very active right now. The explosion increase is expected as the Sun moves towards the maximum of its activity in the 25th solar cycle we are in, which has been observed since the beginning of the records. But even if we accept that the Sun has fully “awakened”, The last few months have been much more active than models predicted.
There’s still a lot we don’t know about the Sun’s variability and potential longer duration cycles that could increase or decrease how active our star is. Although this eruption may have affected our planet, solar flares could become much more powerful. The strongest eruption, determined using modern methods, was recorded in 2003 and at least we know there is an X28 class.This explosion was so powerful that it overloaded the sensors measuring it.
The new eruption was imaged and reported by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, which constantly monitors the Sun.
