A massive double-barrelled sunspot that has doubled in size in the past few days could now send a series of solar flares towards Earth.
Though the severity of the disruption is yet unknown, some scientists are predicting the spot could send off medium-scale solar flares.
These could cause radio blackouts and disruptions in the Earth’s polar regions.
According to SpaceWeather.com, the sunspot in active region 1416 could send out ‘beta-gamma’ magnetic energy in what is known as an M-class flare.
