36 Zee Media Bureau Boulder, Colorado: A powerful solar flare was emitted from the sun early Tuesday, the US scientists said. According to the Space Weather Prediction Center of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, the solar
Earth's magnetic field also flips While the sun's magnetic field flips about every 10 to 13 years, the Earth's own field also flips, meaning that a compass that points to the north would eventually turn to the south...Scientists estimate a flip
The Sun's magnetic field will soon make a dramatic flip, which it does every 10 to 13 years, and scientists are keeping a close eye to see if that reverses the bizarre behaviour they've been seeing for the past decade. Last week, the sun unleashed
A solar flare is a sudden brightening observed over the Sun's surface or the solar limb. Pepe Manteca Solar flares eject clouds of electrons, ions, and atoms through the corona of the sun into space. Pepe Manteca Radiation from solar flares can reach
Physicists at Stanford University are preparing to monitor a somewhat rare event and one whose effects will reverberate through the solar system. Every 11 years the sun reverses its polarity, when its magnetic north and south ‘flip’.
7 November 2013 2 View comments The sun fired off its strongest solar flare of the year this week causing a wide-area blackout of high frequency signal. The powerful flare peaked at 10:12pm GMT on Tuesday and was classified an X3.3, falling into the
X-class denotes the most intense flares, while the number provides more information about its strength. An X2 is twice as intense as an X1, an X3 is three times as intense, etc. The Sun emitted its third solar flare on Oct. 25 and fourth on Oc.
2 November 2013 4 View comments More than two dozen solar flares have erupted from the Sun in the past seven days, catapulting radiation towards the Earth that could potentially play havoc with global communications...National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Harmful radiation from a flare is unable to pass through Earth's atmosphere to physically affect humans on the ground, however -- when intense enough -- they can disturb the atmosphere in the layer where GPS and communications signals travel. This
The sun emitted its solar flare on October 25, 2013, which peaked at 11:03 a.m...This flare has been classified as an X2.1 class while "X-class" denotes the most intense flares, while the number provides more information about its strength.
