Una poderosa llamarada solar de clase X brota del sol, capturada por el Observatorio de Dinámica Solar de la NASA

El Observatorio de Dinámica Solar de la NASA capturó esta imagen de una llamarada solar, como se ve en el destello brillante en la parte superior derecha de la imagen, el 30 de abril de 2022. La imagen muestra un subconjunto de luz ultravioleta extrema que resalta el material extremadamente caliente en las bengalas y se colorea de rojo. Crédito: NASA

El Sol emitió una fuerte llamarada solar el 30 de abril de 2022, alcanzando su punto máximo a las 9:47 a. m. EDT.[{» attribute=»»>NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, which watches the Sun constantly, captured an image of the event.

Solar flares are powerful bursts of energy. Flares and solar eruptions can impact radio communications, electric power grids, and navigation signals. They also pose risks to spacecraft and astronauts.

This flare is classified as an X-class flare. X-class denotes the most intense flares, while the number provides more information about its strength. More info on how flares are classified can be found here.

Please visit NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center, the U.S. government’s official source for space weather forecasts, watches, warnings, and alerts, to see how such space weather may affect Earth. NASA serves as the nation’s space weather research arm. NASA constantly monitors the Sun and our space environment with a network of spacecraft that investigate everything from the Sun’s activity to the solar atmosphere, as well as the particles and magnetic fields in the space surrounding Earth.
