Flares on an inactive Sun

29 May 2018

This is a cracker NASA images of massive flares unleashed by the Sun. There is currently a lack of sunspots but the Sun is highly active at the moment – via coronal holes. Go to www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-5784685/NASA-spacecraft-spots-ma… … and we are told that while the Sun can influence atsmospheric activities and the climate on Earth only certain wavelengths of radiation are able to make it to the surface to actually heat it up. When the Sun is in a period of high magnetic activity it produces more intense radiation – and by tracking these fluctuations it is thought researchers are able to determine how such activity influences climate on Earth.
