Solar Dynamics Observatory, which keeps a constant watch on the sun, captured images of the event in multiple wavelengths. Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation, appearing as giant flashes of light in the SDO images. Harmful radiation from a
The sun fired off a major solar flare late Monday, making it the most powerful sun eruption of the year so far and one of the strongest in recent years. The massive X4.9-class solar flare erupted from an active sunspot, called AR1990, at 7:49 p.m...
Because of its location on the sun's southeastern limb, the flare is not expected to impact satellites or radio communication, scientists claim...The flare can be seen on the left had side of the sun in this image More... 'If such a fast-moving cloud
At end January, NASA’s IRIS mission, which gathers data on the sun’s atmosphere, spotted its strongest solar flare since IRIS launched in summer 2013. http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/iris/overview/index.html#.
Chromosphere regulates the flow of energy and material as they travel from the sun's surface out into space.
They wave like a flag, shimmering green with purple at the fringes, below a tapestry of stars. Sometimes they transform nearly the whole sky into their dance floor, flitting north and south in hues from blue to yellow and even pink and red...I have
17 Washington: The sun emitted a mid-level solar flare late Monday night, peaking at midnight. Solar Dynamics Observatory, shows the bright flare near the center of the sun...Harmful radiation from a flare cannot pass through Earth's atmosphere to
Revisited Massive and Complete Power Wipe Out I have mentioned the possibility of a solar flare wiping out the entire electrical grid before. The message seems to gather greater strength and serious magnitude each time. This article is being
We've been following the coronal mass ejection that headed toward Earth after an intense solar flare was emitted from the sun earlier this week. Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter to generate musical sounds and stream them on the Internet.
They are part of what's known as active regions that can be the source of some of the sun's great explosions, said the press release. Solar flares send out giant bursts of light and radiation due to the release of magnetic energy, or coronal mass
