Experts at the X-ray Laboratory and Solar Astronomy of the Institute of Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences announced that the sun entered a “depression” stage after the flares that occurred in early December.
And experts add, on the official website of the laboratory, so it is in the New Year holidays and perhaps until the end of January does not wait for any activity of the sun. That is, the sun will be calm and comfortable geomagnetism.
According to their data, there are currently no sources of rapid solar winds on the side of the sun facing Earth, as well as on the other side. And the X-rays emitted in 2020 are at the lowest levels. There were no noticeable flares over the last two weeks, even very weak ones.
According to scientists, this dormancy in the sun’s activity is a normal occurrence for the onset of a new solar cycle. “As a rule, this energy is sufficient for relatively short flares, such as those that occurred at the beginning of December, which are usually followed by a prolonged recession, beginning at the end of December 2020 and expected to continue until the end of January 2021,” the laboratory statement said.
