Researchers detected a mysterious ‘heartbeat’ signal of a C-class solar flare from the sun’s surface that repeats every 10-20 seconds.

The research team, led by the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), explained that uncovering the solar flare's source will help them understand the disastrous level of solar storms.

Determining the ‘beating pattern’ is crucial to understand how solar flare energy is released. Here is more information about solar flares that you need to know.

What happens during a solar flare on Earth? A solar flare can temporarily increase the ionization of the atmosphere.

Hence, it will interfere with radio communication and expand the Earth’s outer atmosphere.

Can solar flares affect Earth? Solar flares can heat the ionosphere and make it expands, causing a potential danger to artificial satellites in low-Earth orbit.

Will solar flares disturb human life? Humans are protected from the impacts of solar flares by the Earth’s atmosphere and magnetic field.

Will a solar flare hit Earth in 2025? According to NASA, solar flares will increase and cause problems for Earth through 2025.

The sun is in its solar cycle and will reach the maximum phase in 2025.

What will happen to the Sun in 2025? Scientists expect a solar maximum in July 2025, with a peak of 115 sunspots.

The last solar maximum phase happened in 2014.
