Scientist: a series of flashes in the Sun won't weaken a magnetic board of Earth - RIA Novosti, 9/12/2017
MOSCOW, 12 Sep – RIA Novosti. A series of powerful flashes in the Sun and the related emissions of plasma won't weaken magnetic field of Earth and won't lead to serious consequences, the chief researcher of FIAN Sergey Bogachyov has reported to RIA Novosti. "As a rule, really large flashes even if they happen in one active area, can't happen directly one after another, and are always divided by an interval in days and more. It is connected with that, the large flash takes away practically all energy from active area then quite considerable time that new energy has been saved up is required, and the flare activity has renewed" — the scientist explains. © NASAHa Sun has occurred powerful vspyshkaposledny week the Sun again endures unknown surge in activity – on his surface there were four powerful flashes of a class X at once. One of them which has occurred on Wednesday was the most powerful for the last 12 years. All flashes have led to emission in space of large amounts of solar plasma, and one of these clouds of the heated gas has faced in the morning on Friday magnetic field of Earth and has generated the most powerful polar light. As the scientist explains, this series of flashes and emissions won't weaken magnetic field of Earth and won't lead to more serious consequences, than those which could be seen in the night sky of the northern hemisphere of Earth last Friday and in last days off. © Flickr/NASA'S Marshall Space Flight Centerastronom: the flash in the Sun won't lead to an apocalypse "In this case to the Sun after the first flash which has happened on September 6 almost days were required to renew activity and three more days to save up energy for new very strong explosion. At such considerable intervals, magnetic field and the atmosphere of Earth manage to be restored completely, and effects of flashes aren't summarized. More small flares can go and one by one, at an interval of tens of minutes. The effect of such events can be summarized, but, in general, their influence is small and isn't of great importance" — Bogachyov continues. In Sunday in the Sun there was the fourth powerful flash in a week whose force — X8.2 – conceded to the champion a little. As the Laboratory of x-ray astronomy of the Sun at Physical institute of RAS reports, she has also led to emission of a big cloud of solar plasma which will strike all four planets of internal Solar system at once this time. © Photo: NASA/SDOìá the Sun the most powerful for the last 12 years a vspyshkacentralny part of emission as scientists note has occurred, will face Venus and Mercury, and it will affect Earth and Mars only on a tangent. According to Bogachyov, this emission won't pose a threat for Earth, and further the level of flare activity will reduce to zero as the spots generating these emissions and flashes "have already moved" to side of the Sun invisible to us.
