Total Eclipse: Solar Research Thrives in Darkness

Sunspots, that seem as dim rags on a sun’s surface, called a photosphere, imply heated captivating activity. At 7,000 degrees Fahrenheit, these areas are cooler, and so darker, than a surrounding aspect area, that can strech temperatures of 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit.

 

Sunspot activity waxes and wanes during an 11-year cycle. During a solar maximum, when sunspots are some-more numerous, a Earth’s atmosphere is rocked by geomagnetic storms, that impact all from communications networks to satellites.

 

Interestingly, an NSF-funded investigate also found that a Earth is bombarded by high speeds of solar appetite during even still phases, called a solar minimum, when sunspots are fewer or have disappeared.
