Sun erupted 2 solar flares radio blackout in many parts of the world
SpaceWeatherLive reports that this solar flare caused a temporary radio blackout over the Pacific Ocean on Monday. Not only this, after some time due to another solar flare, a similar situation arose in Japan, South Korea and eastern areas of China.
This is all because of a sunspot that has emerged in the Sun, which is called AR3429. Another sunspot named AR3423 can also become a problem for Earth and other planets. The size of AR3423 has increased by 1 lakh kilometers since last Friday.
Solar flares are created by the light and particles emitted when the Sun releases magnetic energy. These flares are the most powerful explosions ever seen in our solar system, releasing energy comparable to billions of hydrogen bombs. The energetic particles present in them travel at the speed of light.
Like solar flares, coronal mass ejections also put the Earth in trouble. These are large clouds of solar plasma. After a solar explosion, these clouds spread in space in the Sun's magnetic field. Due to their rotation in space, they expand and often reach a distance of several lakhs of miles. Many times they collide with the magnetic fields of the planets. When their direction is towards the Earth, they can cause geomagnetic disturbances. Due to these, short circuits may occur in satellites and the power grid may be affected. If their impact is severe, they can also put astronauts in Earth's orbit in danger.
