Earth can sometimes be impacted by the events that take place as a result of the magnitude of the blow-offs in the Sun. Researchers have managed to record one of these events for the first time and make a numerical calculation of it.
Back in 2017, a massive magnetic field explosion took place beside a Sunspot on the surface of the natural satellite. Violent solar flares, generated by the strong fall of magnetic energy, activated rough space weather conditions on Earth.
These solar flares were seen for the first time by the New Jersey Institute of Technology Expanded Owens Valley Solar Array radio telescope. The pictures were captured for the first time ever at the location and time when the explosion produced energy.
Scientists could measure numerically the magnetic field power that increases with data gathered in the microwave spectrum. The team also observed its transformation into other shapes of energy. The magnetic field of this sphere of light, prior called a Solar Crown, that was spotted around the Sun, could not be evaluated directly during brightness or other massive explosions.
These roundabout calculations could not accurately measure the dynamic local changes of the magnetic field.
“We can pinpoint the most critical points of magnetic energy propagation in the Solar Crown,” said Gregory Fleishman, a professor of physics at the New Jersey Institute of Technology.
The basic processes occurring, show similarities to those taking place in the most powerful astrophysical causes, such as gamma-ray bursts (GRBs).
Measurement of the Blow-Offs
The Expanded Owens Valley Solar Array telescope captured many images in seconds by utilizing numerous frequencies optics, ultraviolet, x-rays, and radio wavelengths in 1 to 18 GHz range with 13 antennas.
Dale Gary, a professor of physics at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, stated that microwave discharge is the only mechanism delicate in connection to the magnetic field setting of the Sun Crown. Professor Gary also utilizes these statements about measurements:
“Measurements are made possible by high-energy electrons circulating in the magnetic field of the Sun Crown, dominating the magnetic-sensitive radiation in the microwave range. The connection of particles that accelerate with the explosion and particles that are shocked with shock is important in understanding which explosions are threatening and which are harmless. ”
