A perfect c-class solar flare, can it be….
The sun has been quiet for many hours and yet has decided to remind us who powers our very being and we have seen a perfect c-class solar flare. The curve on the graph(first graphic) can only make one apprecite the emmense power our sun has to offer us . No there is nothing to worry about, this is harmless although amazing, pretty and not common.
What is a solar flare?
A solar flare is a sudden brightening observed over the Sun surface or the solar limb, which is interpreted as a large energy release of up to 6 × 1025 joules of energy (about a sixth of the total energy output of the Sun each second). The flare ejects clouds of electrons, ions, and atoms through the corona into space.
Solar flares were first observed on the Sun by Richard Christopher Carrington and independently by Richard Hodgson in 1859  as localized visible brightenings of small areas within a sunspot group. Stellar flares have also been observed on a variety of other stars.
The frequency of occurrence of solar flares varies, from several per day when the Sun is particularly “active” to less than one every week when the Sun is “quiet”, following the 11-year cycle (the solar cycle). Large flares are less frequent than smaller ones.
Thank you God for such a wonderful companion to everyday of my life(see second picture)!
