You must be surprised to hear the blast inside the Sun, but this incident has happened. There is a big explosion in the sun. This is the biggest explosion ever since 2017. Its video has also been released by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Due to this blast, strong solar flares were seen on the surface of the Sun on July 3. After the explosion, the X-ray rays came towards the Earth at the speed of light and hit the upper part of the atmosphere. This caused a shortwave radio blackout in the Atlantic Ocean and its coastal areas.
NASA released video
According to the news, this was the biggest fireworks in the universe in the last 4. In the video released by NASA, massive fires can be seen emanating from the upper right part of the Sun. Solar flares are also called solar storms, which originate from dark spots formed on the Sun. According to officials of the US Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC), this dark spot formed overnight. It has been named the AR2838 and the event is considered an X-1 class event.
Energy equivalent to several hydrogen bombs
Astronomer Dr. Tony Phillips, who monitors space events, says, ‘This sunspot became as if the clouds suddenly started moving rapidly in the clear sky. Until a day ago, this sunspot did not exist and no such solar activity was expected. He further wrote on Spaceweather.com, ‘There is a possibility of more such solar storms. ‘
NASA claims that the energy released due to this blast is equivalent to millions of 100 megaton hydrogen bombs. This event is exactly like the explosion of millions of hydrogen bombs at the same time. Even after this, it is only one tenth of the total energy of the sun.
Solar storms emerge from dark spots
According to NASA, a lot of energy is released from the dark spots formed in the sun. This energy looks like a flame, which are called solar storms. The eruption of solar storms is one of the largest explosive events in the solar system, which lasts from a few minutes to hours. According to the news, as fast as the AR2838 sunspot was formed, it disappeared as fast. On July 4, this sunspot moved to the north-western part of the Sun. This will go away further in the next 2 weeks.
