Astronomers believe that December 21, 2012 - the day that very mistrustful people waiting for the end of the world - will be the most common. According to them, the Sun will have no outbreaks, and will not even magnetic storms.
"Even the magnetic storms on that day will not be", - said the director of the Astronomical Observatory of Irkutsk State University Sergei Yazev.
According to him, Russian scientists from Irkutsk, Moscow and Novosibirsk watched a total solar eclipse on the northern coast of Australia.
Now astronomers have obtained the first evidence photographs solar corona. Star entered the stage of its maximum activity, which this time will last an unusually long time - about three years, they predict.
Solar activity is connected with the formation and decay in the atmosphere of a star with strong magnetic fields. These processes concern the world's population as flares and magnetic storms, which is considered to be affected by the technique, and the well-being of people. Despite the protracted phase of maximum, nothing much to expect from the sun is not necessary, the scientists believe.
"In 1957, at the peak of the solar cycle 19 the level was about three times higher than now and nothing happened. Who does not know that and did not notice, "- said Sergey Yaz.
