an active region and it has no name


An unstable nest of magnetic fields emerged over the sun's northeastern horizon yesterday, and it is crackling with C-class solar flares. Astrophotographer Pete Lawrence sends this picture from his backyard observatory in Selsey,




Although the maelstrom does have a small dark core, technically making it a sunspot, it has not yet been sunspot-numbered by NOAA. Readers with solar telescopes are encouraged to keep an eye on the no-name active region--it's where the action is.

It's a sunspot that the NOAA hasn't numbered yet...

I've heard solar flares could potentially wipe us out...So what would really happen?

This object has already been observed pulling a flare from the sun . Am i correct that its on the suns north side ? (not sure here)

solar flares wont wipe us out the worst a flare could do is wipeout our communication systems and power....here is an expo if u want 1


Scientists classify solar flares according to their x-ray brightness in the wavelength range 1 to 8 Angstroms. There are 3 categories: X-class flares are big; they are major events that can trigger planet-wide radio blackouts and long-lasting radiation storms. M-class flares are medium-sized; they can cause brief radio blackouts that affect Earth's polar regions. Minor radiation storms sometimes follow an M-class flare. Compared to X- and M-class events, C-class flares are small with few noticeable consequences here on Earth.


hope that helps

Well radiation could do it...Depends on how well the planet can block it...Anyways It's all good...

It's a light bloom from the camera. Objects in orbit don't pull flares.

Here's an explanation that was posted last year:
www.badastronomy.com...


There is a picture posted at www.cyberspaceorbit.com... which is called the "Ra" image because there is a feature that looks like the symbol for the Egyptian god Ra. This is a perfect example of a bright object blooming. If you go through the SOHO archive, you'll see this happening whenever a bright object is in the image. Venus is the brightest thing you'll see, and it blooms quite a bit. I don't know what was in the SOHO field in the Ra image, but it was bright and it bloomed (it may have been a very energetic CR). Those "wings" are not real. They are simply electrons that overflowed inside the CCD itself.

You can see several examples on this page: www.iwonderproductions.com... In fact, the explanation given by Joe Gurman on that page is correct, and the webpage author didn't believe him. The cosmic rays and bright objects give the same shape every time because what's happening is inside the CCD, not on the sky.

Somewhere on ats there is a video of this object doing just that , at the time phage thought it might be mercury . I will post the vid on this post when i find it .

OK ,The double effect is due to a phenomenon called "blooming" I guess
