A group of giant sunspots, called AR3576, is currently located directly opposite Earth. Astronomers are watching it closelyBecause it can be a source of powerful flames, damaging satellites and power grids.
Cluster AR3576 was first observed by NASA's Perseverance rover, which is why it got its name “Martian spots”. MastCam acquired the group in late January, and since then the size of the sites has increased dramatically and they are now facing us.
According to SpaceWeather, the sunspot cluster extends over a huge distance. Sizes Approximately 150,000 km. Furthermore, at least four of the visible spots are larger than Earth. These enormous sizes allow sunspots to be viewed from Earth only with ISO-certified eclipse glasses.
