The “corpse” of a day exploded on Monday (April 11), sparking a massive release of orbits traveling to the Earth’s surface.
The solar explosion came as a result of a meteor shower called AR2987, according to SpaceWeather.com. The explosion of the sun released a lot of energy in the form of radiation, and also led to coronal mass ejection (CME) – the explosive balls of matter – both of which can cause strengthens strength. right light in the sky above the Earth. The content of that CME will hit Earth on April 14, according to SpaceWeather.
The sun has dark spots on the skin make up. They are formed because of the strength of the magnetic flux from within the sun, according to the Space Weather Prediction Center. These spots are short -lived and can persist anywhere from hours to months. The idea of a “dead” sunspot is more poetic than scientific, says Philip Judge, a solar physicist at the High Altitude Observatory at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), but the convection of the sun break down these places. leaving their awakening fragments of the soft sun.
“Sometimes,” Judge Live Science wrote in an email, “sunspots can‘ start all over again, ’with more magnetism Seen later (days, weeks) in the same land, as if a weakness had been created in the convection zone, or an unstable soil under the skin that is very good at making gardens. magnetic and below. ”

Of all the upcoming AR2987, the sun released a C-class solar light at 5:21 Universal Time Monday (April 11). Those flames are formed when the plasma and magnetic fields on the sun fall under pressure; they were running out quickly, said the judge, because they were running through a lot of things when they went down in the sun.
The C-class surface is normal and cannot directly affect the Earth. Sometimes, like today’s lava, the sun’s rays can trigger coronal mass ejections, which are large bursts of plasma and magnetic fields from the sun that run out into the sun. air at millions of miles per hour. C-class CMEs cannot be upgraded to CMEs, such as SpaceWeatherLive, and when they do, CMEs are slow and vulnerable.
When CMEs hit the magnetic field around the Earth, the particles charged in the ejection can go down the magnetic field lines coming from the North and South Poles and merge. with gases in the air, releasing energy in various ways pictures and the making of bright curtains known as the aurora – the right and left lights.
During the cooler periods on the surface of the sun, a stream of particles called the solar wind is enough to produce aurora in the polar regions. In a large CME, the Earth’s magnetic field is more sensitive, which means that the aurora can be detected in a wide area. It’s something called Eat CME travel to Earth in late March, to raise auroras in Canada, North America, and New Zealand, Space.com reported.
The CME released on Monday will provide a small geomagnetic storm (G1) on April 14, which is likely to have small effects on satellite operations and weak changes in power consumption, say such as SpaceWeather. The aurora can be seen at lower latitudes than usual, as far south as northern Michigan and Maine.
All of these activities are relevant to the field for the day, according to the Solar Influences Data Analysis Center, part of the Royal Observatory of Belgium. It was a time of increasing activity for our nearest star, going through quiet periods and activities called the solar cycle. The sun is in Solar Cycle 25, the 25th since the beginning of observation in 1755. The number of days is increasing in this cycle. expected to increase by 2025That is, more times for the storms of the sun – and auroras.
Strong geomagnetic waves were also observed on Sunday (April 10). But according to the Solar Influences Data Analysis Center, no Earth -induced CME has been seen in the past 24 hours than the one spotted by the remnants of AR2987.
