Giant Sunspot on the Sun has Doubled in Size in 24 Hours and is Pointed Towards Earth
Wednesday 22nd, June 2022
A large sunspot known as AR3038 on our Sun has been seen to double in size in 24 hours and is pointed towards Earth.

A sunspot is a dark spot on the sun that can send out intense bursts of radiation, the spot appears dark in colour as it is cooler than the surrounding area on the sun.

The sunspot is cooler due to the fact that the sun's magnetic field can be so strong to prevent some heat reaching the surface from the inner sun.

These sunspots can sometimes suddenly release a large explosion of light and radiation which is propelled away from the sun in what is known as a solar flare.

The website said, "Yesterday, sunspot AR3038 was big. Today, it's enormous,", additionally, "The fast-growing sunspot has doubled in size in only 24 hours."

Rob Steenburgh, the acting lead of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Space Weather Forecast Office said, "This is what sunspots do,", followed by, "Over time, generally, they'll grow. They go through stages, and then they decay."
