The magnetic field of sun will change in a few months
Sun expect big changes. According to data from the observatory telescopes NASA, soon the huge magnetic field of the Sun “roll over”.
From a complete change of polarity separates us no more than 3-4 months. The amendment will have a ripple effect on the entire solar system – says physicist Todd Hoeksema of Stanford University.
Sun’s magnetic field changes its polarity approximately every 11 years. It happens at the peak of each solar cycle after repeated self-organization of the internal magnetic dynamo of the sun, writes news resource Phys, covering events from the world of science and technology.
Coming inversion marks the middle of the 24th solar cycle. The first half, we have already experienced, the second is pending.
Hoeksema led Wilcox Solar Observatory at Stanford University, one of the few observatories in the world, looking for the polar magnetic fields of the Sun. The inversion of poles promises change. Like scientists, observing the polar regions of our planet in search of signs pointing to climate change, the researchers of the sun do the same work in relation to the large luminary. Record changes in the magnetic field of the Sun is the Wilcox Observatory since 1976. The upcoming inversion will be the fourth in a row.
The phenomenon describes the physicist Phil Scherrer of Stanford University:
Polar magnetic field of the sun weakens, and there are reset again, but with reversed polarity. It is perfectly normal for the solar cycle.
The inversion of the magnetic field of the Sun is literally a big event. The scope of the solar wind (the heliosphere) extends billions of miles beyond Pluto.
How will that affect the climate of our planet , we will find out soon.
