The foremost differentiation between solar flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs) is the scale on which they transpire. Solar flares are rather little and local, occuring in the low solar atmosphere, near sunspots, where magnetic field lines are concentrated. CMEs on the other hand are huge. They can even be bigger than the sun itself!
However, this has not happened and it’s starting to make secular scientist themselves admit that our sun is special and unique in design, because it does not emit these monster super flares like the ones produced by Proxima Centauri. The question is, could our sun send out such a flare powerful enough to even melt the ice on Jupiter’s moon’s, destroy earth’s ozone layer and even obliterate all our satellites? Well the answer is yes. Scientist have studied other sun like stars in our galaxy and discovered that they produce these super flares about once a century. But, they have no explanations as to why our sun does not produce such solar
Sunspots are dark spots on the Sun caused its magnetic field. The spots are dark because they are cooler than the area of the Sun that surrounds them and are often as big as the Earth.
In Egyptian myth, the appearance of death and disease took place when humans began to plot against the sun god. The sun god sought out advice from the other gods, who suggested destroying the humans. In order to do so, the Eye goddess transformed into a lioness and slaughtered many people before the Sun God attempted to save the remaining humans. Additionally, it is also stated that criminals were occasionally sacrificed to the lioness goddess and that contagious diseases were her “messengers”. Ultimately, death and disease had become a part of humanity.
Solar wind is a continuous stream of charged particles – protons and electrons – with some atomic nuclei. It is produced by the hydrogen fusion reactions at the Sun’s core with
--On approach to mars, a solar superstorm erupts. A solar flare is a quick release of energy from the Sun’s surface. Flares are classified logarithmically, like the Richter scale, with the highest being X class. An X10 flare would be ten times as powerful as an X1, and an X1 ten times as powerful as an M1 (the next lowest letter).
According to (Wikipedia 2015), sun spots are temporary areas on the photosphere of the sun that visibly appear darker than compared to the surrounding regions due to less energy expended. Sunspots are caused by different concentrations in the suns magnetic field that results in areas with a reduced surface temperature compared to the rest of the photosphere (Taylor Reid 2015). The Maunder Minimum is
Sunspots are disturbances that occur on the suns surface as a result of magnetic activity in the Sun’s interior. They appear as dark spots composed of a darker centre called the umbra that are surrounded by a lighter area called the penumbra.
2nd P: To understand the effects of solar plasma on Earth’s magnetosphere, one must look at the creation of plasma in the early days of the sun. The sun’s creation is similar to the process in the explosion of a hydrogen bomb, only with the energy created equaling the force of 10 billion hydrogen bombs per second. When the sun was originally forming, hydrogen gas in the middle was crushed from weight above. Eventually, the pressures and temperatures reached such an intense point to where the hydrogen atoms broke apart into electrons and photons, thus, creating plasma. Photons from the explosion of electrons and protons are made so fast and so many at a time that it creates the observed power of the sun. This reaches us as sunlight. Even though the process of the energy created is relatively quick, the process in which the photons travel to Earth happens over a long time within the Sun’s layers. The energy of sunlight that shines down on us today is over 100,000 years 1
The corona is the hotter than the surface of the sun (Fox). The ribbon-like strands surround the freckled skin with hair, frizzing. The flares are zits popping off the bubbling surface, the magnetic seasons in cycles. Even the sun has mood swings.
Sunspots are regions on the surface of the sun, which is called the photosphere. Sunspots are cool, dark and temporary. The surface temperate of the sun is 6000 Celsius and sunspots are about 1500 Celsius. They can last up to hours or even months. Sunspots usually expand and contract as they move across the surface of the sun and can be as large as 80,000 km in diameter. Sunspots are magnetic fields on the sun, which are thousand times stronger than the magnetic fields on the earth. The magnetic field is the strongest in the darker parts of the sunspot, which is called umbra. The field is weaker in the lighter part, which is the penumbra. These are solar "storms", a kind of "burp" where the Sun ejects high-speed and energetic particles, which
Solar flares are cyclical, usually over a period of eleven years. There are three basic stages to a solar flare. The first stage is the precursor stage, where the release of magnetic energy is triggered. In the second or impulsive stage, radio waves are emitted. During the third or decay stage, the gradual build up and decay of soft x-rays can be detected.
Have you ever heard of a solar flare? A solar flare exists after a sunspot has existed for a long time and the magnetic lines of force usually become jumbled. As a result of this jumbling, magnetic energy is stored in the Corona (region of atmosphere above the chromosphere). The energy may be released in a spectacular discharge, which is a solar flare. A solar flare can be as wide as 367,000 miles and as high 500,000 miles out into space. A solar flare is nothing more than helium erupting from the sun like a volcano.
