What is a solar storm? How a solar flare impact affects the Earth


Big news! NASA predicts a solar flare will hit Earth in 2025.

It reports that a powerful solar flare erupted on Aug 5 but had no resounding effects.

A solar flare is a burst of radiation from releasing magnetic energy associated with sunspots.

The first major sunspot spike occurred in Dec 2022, when the sun reached an 8-year sunspot peak. 

NASA’s SDO said there is a danger of a recent sunspot releasing an M-Class solar flare in Earth’s direction.

They can wreak havoc on electronics and communication systems.

The largest solar storm on record is called the Carrington Event from 1859.

A new NASA system called DAGGER that uses AI will better predict sun flares up to 30 minutes in advance.
