Scientists: The probability of intense flares on the sun has reached 80 percent

Scientists at the Solar Astronomy Laboratory of the Russian Academy of Sciences announced that the formation of a new active center on the Sun with the number 3713 near the large region 3712 may cause intense solar flares.

Scientists point out that the emergence of a new active center on the sun during the past 24 hours has brought the probability of intense solar flares close to 80 percent, which is close to the theoretical maximum.

It should be noted that solar flares in early May led to the longest and strongest magnetic storm on Earth since 2005, which reached maximum energy levels G5 on the night of May 11. Later, astronomers recorded another series of powerful flares on the Sun.

It is noteworthy that solar flares are divided into five categories depending on the intensity of the X-rays - A, B, C, M, and X. The lower limit of class A0.0 corresponds to an Earth orbit radiation power of 10 nanowatts per square meter. It increases tenfold in each category. Flares are usually accompanied by solar plasma emissions, the clouds of which reaching Earth can trigger magnetic storms.
