NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory captures sunspot rotating towards Earth
The Solar Dynamics Observatory, one of NASA’s space probes dedicated to examine the Sun, has just video recorded a sunspot rotating towards Earth.
Sunspots can be described as patches on Sun’s surface that are somewhat darker than their surroundings because of loss of surface tension caused by magnetic flux, a strong concentration of intricate magnetic fields.
The American space agency’s Solar Dynamics Observatory captured the imagery between 5th and 11th of July.
The agency said in a statement, “This sunspot is the first to appear after the sun was spotless for two days, and it is the only sunspot group at this moment.”
Sunspots appear to be quite small but scientists warned that the patch of intensive electromagnetic activity caused by these spots is actually quite larger than Earth.
Sunspots are not rare but as our host star approaches the solar minimum or the least active part of its eleven-year cycle, the occurrence of sunspots declines.
