Planet-Sized Sunspot Has Grown 10-Times In Just A Few Days, And It’s Aimed Right at Earth

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


By Katie Hutton

A sunspot that is pointing straight towards Earth and is fast expanding has been seen by scientists. This sunspot has the potential to send an attack of solar energy our way in the coming days, according to Newsweek.

A few days ago, the sunspot, which was given the designation of AR3085 after the “active region” of the sun in which it first formed, was hardly a blip on the radar. According to SpaceWeather.com, it has now increased in size by a factor of ten, transforming into a pair of sunspots that each measure almost as far as the circumference of the Earth. This animation illustrates the progression of the spot over the course of about two days.

According to SpaceWeather, a number of solar flares, which are huge bursts of electromagnetic radiation that snap off from the surface of the sun and blast forth into space, have been spotted “crackling” in the area. Solar flares are a type of solar activity that can be dangerous to earth if they are large enough.

The good news is that all of the flares that are occurring right now belong to the C-class, which is the weakest of the three classes of solar flares that government satellites monitor. In most cases, flares of the A-, B-, and C-classes are not powerful enough to have a discernible effect on Earth.

According to NASA, flares of the X-class have the potential to cause widespread radio blackouts, damage satellites, and knock out ground-based power grids. M-class flares are stronger than X-class flares and are capable of causing radio blackouts at high latitudes. X-class flares are the strongest type of solar flare.

If the spots continue to enlarge over the next several days, it is possible that they could emit more-powerful flares that will go toward Earth. This could put satellites and communication systems in jeopardy. There is not, however, any immediate threat at this time.

On the surface of the sun, huge, dark patches characterized by intense magnetic fields may take the shape of sunspots. According to Space.com, the reason these areas, which often have a width comparable to that of planets, look darker is because they have a lower temperature than the rest of their surroundings.

They originate at areas of the sun’s surface where bands of the magnetic field get entangled and tight, so obstructing the passage of hot gas emanating from the inside of the sun and giving rise to colder, darker regions on its surface.

Solar flares are often caused by the accumulation of magnetic energy at the sun’s surface. When there are a greater number of sunspots present on the sun at a certain period, there is a greater chance that solar flares may occur.

There is a correlation between the sun’s 11-year cycle of activity and the frequency of sunspots and solar flares. This cycle alternates between times of high sunspot density and periods of low sunspot density around once every ten years or so.

It is anticipated that the next solar maximum, also known as the time of greatest sunspot activity, will occur in the year 2025. It is anticipated that during the days of the sun’s peak activity, as many as 115 sunspots would form on the surface of the sun.

Solar activity has been increasing over the last few years, and since spring of 2022, there have been a number of X-class flares that have swept across our globe, often occurring within a few of days of one another.

This trend is expected to continue for the foreseeable future. As time ticks away toward the next solar maximum, there is a good chance that there will be a greater rise in the number of sunspots and solar flares.

    The GREATEST LIE on Earth: Proof That Our World Is Not a Moving Globe PAPERBACK – 17 Jan. 2016

    by Edward HENDRIE

    This book reveals the MOTHER OF ALL CONSPIRACIE$. :idea:

    It sets forth biblical proof and irrefutable evidence that will cause the scales to fall from your eyes and reveal that the world you thought existed is a myth.

    The most universally ACCEPTED SCIENTIFIC beLIEf today is that the EARTH IS A GLOBE….. :idea:

    SPINNING ON IT’S AXIS AT a speed of approximately 1,000 MILES PER HOUR AT the EQUATOR……. :roll:

    WHILE at the same time it is ORBITING the SUN AT approximately 66,600 MILES PER HOUR. :lol: :idea: :eek:

    All of this is happening as THE SUN, in turn, IS supposed to be HURTLING THROUGH the MILKY WAY galaxy AT
    ………approximately 500,000 MILES PER HOUR. :grin:

    THE MILKY WAY galaxy, itself, I$ alleged to be RACING THROUGH SPACE AT a speed ranging from 300,000 to 1,340,000 MILES PER HOUR. :eek:

    What most people are not told is that THE PURPORTED SPINNING, ORBITING and SPEEDING THROUGH SPACE….HA$ NEVER BEEN PROVEN.

    In fact, every scientific experiment that has ever been performed to determine the motion of the earth has proven that the EARTH IS STATIONARY.

    Yet, textbooks ignore the scientific proof that contradicts the myth of a spinning and orbiting globe.

    Christian schools have been hoodwinked into teaching heliocentrism, despite the clear teaching in the bible that the earth is not a sphere and does not move.
    This book reveals THE EVIL FORCES BEHIND the HELIOCENTRIC DECEPTION…..and why scientists and the Christian churches have gone along with it.
