Dramatic Image Reveals How Much The Sun Has Changed in Two Years : ScienceAlert

The solar cycle has been reasonably well understood since 1843 when Samuel Schwabe spent 17 years observing the variation of sunspots. Since then, we have regularly observed the ebb and flow of the sunspots cycle every 11 years.More recently ESA's Solar Orbiter has taken regular images of the Sun to track the progress as we head towards the peak of the current solar cycle.Two recently released images from February 2021 and October 2023 show how things are really picking up as we head toward solar maximum.Startling…

Sun hurls out strongest solar flare since 2017, two other X-class flares! Know the solar storm danger

The current solar cycle is expected to peak this year, according to scientists. Consequently, we've seen an increase in the number as well as the intensity of solar phenomena such as solar flares, solar storms, CMEs and more. In a new incident, the Sun has hurled out as many as three solar flares towards Earth, and one of them is the strongest solar flare of the solar cycle 25! This poses a potential solar storm danger. Know details.Solar storm dangerAccording to NASA, the Sun spewed out two solar flares just 7 hours…

Astronomers found quasar fueled by black hole that eats sun per day

The brightest object in the universe—at least, the brightest we’ve seen yet—shines 500 trillion times brighter than the sun, and it eats a sun a day. Objects like these are rare, and despite their objective brightness, remain elusive and hard to spot. This record-breaker was first spotted in 1980 and mischaracterized as a regular old star. Then, in a study conducted by a team out of Australia using the Siding Spring Observatory, it was recast as a quasar. Observations published Monday in Nature Astronomy and collected by…

X2.5 Solar Flare Unleashed – NASA’s SDO Captures Powerful Spectacle

A significant solar flare, peaking at 1:53 a.m. EST on February 16, 2024, was observed by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory. Classified as an X2.5, it represents a high-intensity energy burst with potentially disruptive effects on technology and space missions. Credit: NASA/SDOThe Sun emitted a strong solar flare, peaking at 1:53 a.m. EST on Friday, February 16, 2024. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, which watches the Sun constantly, captured an image of the event.Solar flares are powerful bursts of energy. Flares and…

Brightest object in the universe swallows a Sun every day

You’d assume that the brightest object in the known universe would be a pretty easy thing to discover, but astronomers have only just spotted it. This overlooked show-off is a supermassive black hole with the mass of 17 billion Suns, and counting – it swallows another Suns’ worth of material every day, making it also the fastest-growing black hole ever found.There’s a couple of obvious questions you’re probably asking about this. First, black holes are the blackest things that can exist, and light famously can’t escape…

The Brightest Quasar Ever Seen Eats a ‘Sun’ Every Day

February 20, 20244 min readThe quasar, as bright as 500 trillion suns, has evaded astronomers for over 40 years because of its incredible luminosityBy Robert Lea & SPACE.comAn artist's impression of the record-breakin quasar J059-4351, the bright core of a distant galaxy illuminated by a supermassive black hole. This black hole has a mass of 17 billion times that of our sun, and consumes an entire sun's mass of material per day. A newly discovered quasar is a real record-breaker. Not only is it the brightest quasar

Fastest-Growing Black Hole Is Eating a Sun Per Day

Our Sun is about 330,000 times the mass of Earth, yet it is dwarfed by the black holes that lurk at the centers of galaxies. A team of astronomers recently found the fastest-growing of this group: a 17-billion solar mass black hole in the distant universe, which is growing at the rate of one solar mass per day.Why Bitcoin won’t reach $1,000,000The black hole is actually a quasar, aka an actively feeding black hole at the center of a galaxy. When quasars accrete matter—which is to say, as their strong gravitational fields…

Brightest object in Universe found: It’s “500 trillion times more luminous than the Sun”, experts say

Astronomers and researchers have been studying the Universe for decades with the help of advanced telescopes and equipment around the world. Now, with the help of the European Southern Observatory's (ESO) Very Large Telescope (VLT), astronomers have located the brightest object in Universe. It is a quasar. Experts believe that this is the most luminous object ever found in deep space. And the brightness does not stem from something ordinary. The quasar is said to be energized by what is reported to be the fastest-growing…

Brightest Object in the Universe Discovered – Powered by Supermassive Black Hole Eating a Sun a Day

This artist’s impression shows the record-breaking quasar J059-4351, the bright core of a distant galaxy that is powered by a supermassive black hole. Using ESO’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile, this quasar has been found to be the most luminous object known in the Universe to date. The supermassive black hole, seen here pulling in surrounding matter, has a mass 17 billion times that of the Sun and is growing in mass by the equivalent of another Sun per day, making it the fastest-growing black hole ever known.…
