Scientists have found AR3038 Sunspot : The sun is the most important part of our galaxy. Because of this there is life on earth, there is light. Now that the sun is so important, scientists keep a close eye on the events happening in the sun. Scientists have seen a ‘giant sunspot’ on the sun. Scientists are keeping a close eye on this sunspot. Its size has doubled in the last 24 hours. According to scientists, this unstable patch present on the solar surface is present directly towards the Earth. In such a situation, if it explodes, then a solar flare will flare up on the way from the Sun to the Earth.
What is Sunspot?
A sunspot is a dark area present in the Sun. Sunspots can last from a few hours to a few months. Not all sunspots cause solar flares, but when it does, it gets attached to the earth and has an effect on the earth as well.
What is Solar Flare?
When the Sun’s magnetic energy is released, solar flares are formed from the light and particles emitted from it. According to reports, these flares are the most powerful explosions ever in our Solar System. These solar flares release energy comparable to billions of hydrogen bombs.
The Sun reports
According to the report of The Sun, this solar flare is not expected to hit the Earth yet. This is good news, but if the sunspot continues to grow, it can behave in an unstable manner. Regarding the sunspot named AR3038, scientists have said that its size has doubled in a very short time. This is an M-class solar flare.
What does M-Class mean?
Storms emanating from the Sun are classified according to their intensity. This allows scientists to determine how dangerous a solar storm is. Understand from the points given below.
- The weakest solar storms in this classification fall into the A-class, B-class and C-class.
- M-class storms are the most dangerous and powerful and there is a possibility of them hitting our earth.
