Today, Jan. 19th at 1340 UT, Earth-orbiting satellites detected the strongest solar flare in almost two years. The M2-class eruption came from old sunspot 1039, currently located behind the sun's eastern limb. Considering the fact that the sunspot is not even visible from Earth, the flare was probably much stronger than its M2 classification would suggest. Stay tuned for updates!
I don't know your opinion on it, but if NASA can't be trusted on somethings they shouldn't be trusted on anything
To immediately assume this reaction is completely normal is rather ignorant I think
With all the recent uncommon activity on the Earth (Weather, EQ's, Volcanoes) is it really hard to imagine the Sun may be going through some "changes" as well?
Yesterday's M2-class solar flare bathed Earth's upper atmosphere in X-rays and caused a wave of ionization to sweep over Europe. This actually improved the propagation of low-frequency radio signals, which use the ionosphere as a reflector to skip over the horizon
