Is it just a coincidence or something else. Tonight, when we will be lighting fireworks and firecrackers on the festival of Diwali in every corner of the world including India, then only ‘divine’ fireworks will be seen in one area of the earth. Tonight the Sun itself is going to do such a feat in our solar system. The effect of which will be seen on earth.
what is the matter
Indeed, a magnetic storm has recently arisen from the Sun, whose effect is going to be visible on Earth today i.e. on November 4. Due to this magnetic storm, strong light will be seen in the polar regions of the Earth, ie the areas adjoining the North and South Pole.
According to a report in the Indian Express newspaper, this amazing event is being watched by space scientists around the world. Many institutions of America, including the Center for Excellence in Space Sciences India (CESSI) in Kolkata, are engaged in studying this amazing phenomenon.
diwali solar storm
In a conversation with the Indian Express, Professor Dibyendu Nandi of CESSI said that if this storm comes to Earth, then it can be called Diwali Solar Storm.
Actually, whenever a solar storm comes, it has been named according to the day of its arrival and the day of its collision with the earth. For example, in the year 2000, there was a solar storm. That storm was named Bastille Day. Similarly, the storm that came in the year 2003 was named Halloween Day. There was a storm in the year 2015. It was named St Patrick’s Day.
Solar flares produce magnetic storms
Actually, solar flares are often born on the Sun. It is a physics term. In this process extremely bright light is produced without any explosion. Many times a lot of light and energy is generated during this process. Sometimes it is confined to the vicinity of the Sun, but sometimes it escapes from the very strong magnetic field of the Sun and ends up in space. In this sequence, this light also illuminates some parts of the earth.
How dangerous is this light for humans
During the solar storm, many dangerous rays are also released. Sometimes X rays that harm us also come out. But these rays do not reach us. According to Professor Nandi, most of the dangerous rays are absorbed in the outer atmosphere of our earth. In such a situation, when light spreads on the earth, it does not harm us. The solar magnetic rays coming today will be very weak. This will not have any negative effect on human health.
was guessed as
Suvadip Sinha and Professor Nandi, PhD student of Kolkata-based institution CESSI, had estimated this solar storm through their research. After this, the American organization released the estimate data about this storm. In this way the guess of the Indian researcher was confirmed. Now it is believed that today this incident will happen 100 percent and we will be able to see the sight of a beautiful light on the earth.
In this regard, Professor Nandi says that estimating space weather is a challenging task. They say that solar storms can change their attitude at any time like a hurricane. We will be able to understand only today i.e. on the night of Diwali whether this wonderful sight will be visible or not.
