NASA has said that the new sunspots on the surface of the sun, the largest solar flare since 2017, could be a sign of the sun getting up from a long slumber.
NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory has observed its strongest flare, since October 2017, on May 29, indicating that the sun will enter a new solar cycle.
According to the British Daily Mail, the solar flare is a wave of radiation from relatively cold sunspots on the surface of the sun.

In its report, NASA explains that there is also an increase in sunspot activity in the current period.
The Daily Mail noted that this flare does not pose a threat to Earth because it was not intended for our planet.
But NASA says it is a sign of the star moving to a more active stage of the 11-year cycle.
And NASA said the torches were too weak to cross the threshold at which the space weather prediction center would alert scientists on Earth.
