- A super solar flare-could it happen again? Reneke, Dave // Amateur Astronomy Magazine;Fall2008, Issue 59, p8
The article describes the phenomenon of solar flares and its effect over planet Earth. On September 1, 1859, Richard Carrington, a British astronomer, observed two brilliant beads of white light appear over the sunspots, contracted and disappeared, the next day brilliant red, green and purple...
- SunSpots. Roberts, Harry // Amateur Astronomy Magazine;Summer2013, Issue 79, p66
The article discusses the developments in the field of astronomy, particularly on the study of the sun. It focuses on the so called flare loops and post flare loops. It claims that the modest sunspot group, AR11748, hosted a very strong GOES X3.2 flare on May 14, 2013. It examines the creation...
