NASA Scientists Say The Sun Is Going To Change,Will Flip Its Magnetic Field Soon.



The sun is gearing up for a major solar flip, NASA says.

The Sun does this every 11 years and it is considered the halfway point of the "solar maximum" — the peak of its weather cycle. The Sun's magnetic fields will weaken and then be reduced to nothing before making the change. We won't feel the change here on Earth but the reversal could spark bad weather around our solar system. The most that could happen, say researchers, is that we get brighter Northern Lights and satellites could be affected by increased solar flares. "It looks like we're no more than three to four months away from a complete field reversal," said solar physicist Todd Hoeksema of Stanford University. "This change will have ripple effects throughout the solar system." Those effects could be felt as far away as Pluto, or even beyond. "The Sun's north pole has already changed sign, while the south pole is racing to catch up," said solar physicist Phil Scherrer. "Soon, however, both poles will be reversed, and the second half of Solar Max will be underway."
