April 12, 2013. The consequences of which occurred on the eve of a solar flare Land feel the weekend. Planet will cover the powerful magnetic storm.
Flash was recorded on Thursday near the center of the solar disk. As noted by the Center for space weather forecasts of the Institute of Terrestrial Magnetism (
Phenomenon was given class M6. Solar flash depending on the power of X-ray radiation can be divided into five classes: A, B, C, M and X. Minimum class A0.0 corresponds to the radiation power in the orbit of the Earth in 10 nanowatts per square meter. When you move to the next letter of the power is increased tenfold.
In IZMIRAN noted that flash accompanied by the ejection of solar material. The flux of protons reached dangerous for space applications. In general, according to experts, the Sun is in a relatively quiet state — in the winter there was not a single magnetic storms. In NASA reported that the peak of solar activity will occur in late 2013. New flash can cause auroras in polar latitudes.
Strong solar storm could affect the operation of the equipment. Primarily, this will affect the satellites and electric loudspeakers across and navigation systems.
But most of all be affected by the solar activity meteodependent people and those who suffer from hypertension or cardiovascular disease. During magnetic oscillations changes blood flow in small blood vessels that can occur due to lack of oxygen. In addition, in the blood increases the amount of adrenaline, which affects the tone of blood vessels.
Doctors warn that such days should not abruptly get out of bed — it can cause dizziness and fainting. During the day, do not overeat, it is better to give preference to fruits and vegetables.
