On February 15, a strong glow erupted on the sun and according to scientists, solar activity “Won’t slow down” During the last weeks of February. Scientists warn that the flares will be “Intense” in the coming days.

According to experts, this time the information was confirmed by the Solar Orbiter spacecraft, which is approaching the star and Share the latest solar activity report.

“The prominence seen by the Solar Orbiter is the largest such event captured in a single field of view along with the solar disk, opening up new possibilities for seeing how events like these connect to the solar disk for the first time,” European Space Agency (ESA) indicates in its report.

Now, is the Earth affected by this activity? Not at the moment, it turns out that if those flares had directly affected Earth, There could have been a strong geomagnetic storm, That can affect communications, satellites and electronic devices. The European Space Agency report warns that these flares “It’s a reminder of the unexpected nature of the sun.” Because of this, it is so important to try to monitor the behavior of the Star King.

And now, he is transcendent. Since the sun is destined to reach its maximum “Moving” In a few years time it will be producing more energy than usual, which translates into solar flares and coronal mass ejections They will affect the Earth constantly.

It must be remembered that this is called the solar cycle and it is the period of the star, which occurs every 11 years, its magnetic poles change places and during the sun’s minimum, the sun’s magnetic field tends to be “Little” weaker than normal.

When is the peak activity? According to NASA’s Solar Cycle 25 Prediction Committee, noted This point can be reached in July 2025, But that could give its first “indications” of its intensity in October 2024. So by this time, it is estimated that severe solar storms that could generate “Explosions” in Sunspot.
