This is the solar flair on the earth’s sun close up.
Natural phenomenon and radiation is fascinating to me – we know the moon controls the tides of the ocean and affects many things. Couldn’t a solar flare cause different things to happen to humans? Here is the news on it.
A massive solar flare erupted from the sun on Tuesday (Jan. 7), rising up from what appears to be one of the largest sunspot groups seen on the star’s surface in a decade, NASA officials say.
NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory captured a video of the huge solar flare as it developed, showing it as an intense burst of radiation from a colossal sunspot region known as AR1944. The sunspot group — which is currently in the middle of the sun as viewed from Earth — is “one of the largest sunspots seen in the last 10 years,” NASA officials wrote in a statement. It is as wide as seven Earths, they added.
