Massive sunspot on the way to the earth can cause large sunburns



If you feel that the worst of 2020 is over, you are wrong because scientists have discovered a massive sunspot that will soon face the Earth and could lead to large strong torches.

New Delhi | Jagran Trending Desk: From coronavirus pandemic to floods to earthquakes to cyclones, humanity has had a lot of problems during the year 2020, making it one of the worst years. People all over the world are asking for all problems to end so that humanity can begin its normal life again. But if you feel that the worst year 2020 is over, you are wrong because scientists and scientists have discovered a massive sunspot that will soon face the earth and can lead to large strong torches.

According to a report from spaceweather.com, the sunspot AR2770, which was captured by an astronomer Martin Wise from Florida̵

7;s Trenton in the United States (USA), is expected to grow larger and will soon face the earth, which can greatly affect electrical activities and facilities on the planet.

If this sunspot grew up to 50,000 kilometers in diameter, it would turn into sun loungers that could lead to sunburn. The strong solar storm will cause “fluctuations of electric currents in space and activate electrons and protons trapped in the Earth’s various magnetic fields”, reported the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and added that it may affect radio communication, GPS (Global Positioning Systems)) connection , electricity networks and satellites.

What is a sunspot?

According to researchers, the sunspot is a dark area on the sun that appears as darker spots than the surrounding areas. Caused by “concentrations of magnetic field flux that inhibit convection”, sunspots have the ability to “expand and contract as they move across the surface of the sun” and this can lead to irregularities in its magnetic field. These sunspots can travel at relative speeds or proper motions and are also known as “solar activity”.

What is a sunscreen?

According to researchers, sunburn is a sudden flash of increased brightness in the sun that occurs due to the changes in the magnetic field and can lead to a huge explosion. They have the ability to affect all layers of the solar atmosphere – photosphere, chromosphere and corona. Researchers say an explosion of a solar flare could have the energy of up to a trillion “little boy” atomic bombs dropped by the United States on Japan’s Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War II in 1945.
