Our Solar System the brightest star of Sun Looks very active this year. It is at the peak of its solar cycle. last week three solar flares As well as generated 18 coronal mass injections and 1 geomagnetic storm. But it won’t always be like this. Many times it also happens that all the spots on the surface of our Sun completely disappear, then our Solar System This star of it seems to be sleeping.
Researchers at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) have uncovered what happens when activity on the Sun ends, how a star gains energy back to explode itself, and how. After the explosion, the dangerous flames of the star cause damage beyond its solar system.
An article about this research has appeared in the Monthly Journal of the Royal Astronomical Society. In this research it has been told that even though the star is sleeping, there is constant movement in its polar locations and within the star. Researchers have discovered that the Sun’s internal dynamo mechanism, which maintains the cycle of our solar system, barely works during the star’s quiet period.
When does the sun sleep?
There have been some times on the Sun when its activity has been slowest, during which there were no sunspots. This time is known as the Grand Minimum. During this there is a decrease in solar radiation and particulate output in the Sun, which is characteristic of the Grand Minimum period.
Scientists have discovered that between 1645 and 1715, there were very few sunspots on the Sun. This is not a standalone event but an app halt of this age of the sun. The age of the Sun is 4.6 billion years.
