First solar storm from huge sunspot reaches Earth and knocks out satellites - and more could be on their way

First solar storm from huge sunspot reaches Earth and knocks out satellites - and more could be on their way

  • Solar radiation knocked out some radio communication on Earth yesterday
  • It came from a giant sunspot seen on the surface of the sun recently
  • Sunspot AR12192 is 14 times larger than Earth and almost as big as Jupiter
  • The Met Office tells MailOnline it might be the largest sunspot in 25 years
  • It is so big that it can be seen in images of the sun from Earth's surface
  • This particular flare from the sunspot was brief but strong
  • It follows three days of severe storms on the sun
  • 'It would seem to be just a matter of time before another strong explosion occurs,' said spaceweather.com's Tony Phillips 

A monster storm on the sun's surface has unleashed a solar flare in the direction of Earth - and there could be more to come.

The event temporarily blacked out a few radio communication systems before weakening. 

The storm came from a large group of sunspots and hit Earth between 10 am and 11 am EDT (2pm and 3pm BST) yesterday.

'It would seem to be just a matter of time before another strong explosion occurs,' said Spaceweather.com's Tony Phillips

An X1.6 class flare erupted from the lower half of the sun today, as seen in the bright flash of light in this image from Nasa's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). This image shows extreme ultraviolet light with a wavelength of 131 Angstroms, which highlights the intense heat of a solar flare
