The magnetic field of the sun is larger than previously thought

UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Researchers have discovered that the magnetic field of the sun’s rays is 10 times larger than previously thought, and this changes all perceptions of solar activity.

“The magnetic field controls everything that happens in the outer shell of the sun, but we have little measurements of its strength and spatial properties,” said David Zaridze of the University of Abervitit in an article published on

“These are critical and very important indicators of the sun’s rays “This is like trying to understand the Earth’s climate, with no possibility of measuring temperature in different geographical locations.”

Caridze and his scientific team were able to achieve a unique measurement of the solar field of the sun’s rays by observing the solar glow with the optical telescope (SST).

In September 2017, astronomers watched the sun for 10 days in the hope of seeing intense glare and focused their observations on one site, about 1 percent of the Sun’s disk space. They actually succeeded, as on September 10, 2017, the intense flurry of this site occurred, although it was less severe than on September 6.

“This is the first time we have been able to measure the magnetic field of the core rings of the sun’s rays with such high precision,” he said.

According to these measurements, the amount of magnetic field at a height of 25 thousand kilometers on the surface of the sun is equivalent to 350 Gauss (Gauss unit of measurement in electric magnetism), which exceeds the Earth’s magnetic field a thousand times. This figure is ten times higher than previously thought.
