The sun has been acting up and we captured some impressive solar flares. This activity spawned a space weather alert from NOAA:
Issue Time: 2021 Jan 30 0513 UTC CONTINUED ALERT: Electron 2MeV Integral Flux exceeded 1000pfu Begin Time: 2021 Jan 27 1220 UTC Yesterday Maximum 2MeV Flux: 3848 pfu
The solar activity has been on the rise. These kind of events are not too impactful to Earth but can cause issues to satellites and spacecraft not protected buy our magnetic field. To put it to scale many Earths would fit in these flares.
