September 2017 Starts With Flare

Solar storms result from an accumulation of magnetic energy in some places.

Due to the distance from the sun and protective atmosphere of the earth together formed unexpectedly a huge radiation burst, which was occurred on Wednesday, 6 September, 2017. Harmful radiation from a flare cannot pass through Earth's atmosphere to physically affect humans on the ground, however - when intense enough - they can disturb the atmosphere in the layer where Global Positioning System and communications signals travel.

NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), a satellite that has continuously studied the Sun since 2010, captured images of both flares, which appear as bright flashes of light coming from the solar surface.

As the researchers explained, actually capturing the birth of such a solar flare was a rather hard process as a tyical X-class flare can burst and reach its peak in as little as five minutes, meaning astronomers need to act fast to ensure they catch the crucial opening moments of the flares evolution. The collected information from the solar flare can be channeled in to a number of billions of pounds of the weather industry of the space to well protecting satellites from the sun's dangers. An X2 is twice as intense as an X1, an X3 is three times as intense, etc.

One eyewitness said the boy had earlier crossed a safety barrier warning visitors not to approach the volcanic vent. Another of the couple's sons, a seven-year-old, survived amid reports he was able to scramble to safety.

"The sun is now in what we call solar minimum".

The Sun emitted two powerful flares on Wednesday, September 6, followed by a coronal mass ejection (CME) that could damage Earth-orbiting satellites and shut down electronic communication and power grids while also producing attractive auroras.

Currently, the Sun is supposed to be entering the quietest phase of its 11-year cycle, but that hasn't stopped it from blasting forth some of the largest solar flares on record. Luckily, the flare was not aimed directly towards Earth.

The second storm was an X9.3, the strongest since 2005 and severe enough to cause the sun to spew out plasma from its surface in a coronal mass ejection.
