The sun shines like this on the new year, a solar flare came out, NASA shared an image

The American space agency NASA has shared a surprising image of the Sun on the occasion of the ‘New Year 2023’. NASA has given the Sun credit for the new year. The space agency tweeted that #HappyNewYear from the ‘Star of the Show’ who made all of this possible. As we know, the Earth takes about 365 days to complete one revolution of the Sun, that is, a full year. And now the Earth has started revolving around the Sun again. The distance from the Earth to the Sun is about 150 million kilometers.

Along with this spectacular image of the Sun that is 4.6 billion years old, NASA has also given more information. The Sun is said to be at the center of our solar system. It is about 8 lakh 65 thousand miles wide. Its maximum temperature is 15 million degrees Celsius. The Sun is what holds our Solar System together.

This image of the Sun was taken by the Solar Dynamic Observatory (SDO). Through a spacecraft, this observatory monitors the activities happening on the Sun. Solar flares can reportedly be seen coming off in the image of the Sun. When the Sun’s magnetic energy is released, the light and particles that emits create solar flares. Solar flares are the most powerful explosions in our solar system, releasing energy comparable to billions of hydrogen bombs.

When the direction of solar flares is towards the earth, it can affect our planet in many ways. Radio communications, power grids and navigation signals may be affected. Solar flares also pose a serious threat to spacecraft and astronauts. Significantly, our Sun is going through its 11-year cycle and is in a very active phase. Because of this, solar flares are coming off the Sun and coronal mass ejection (CME) events are occurring.
