Russian scientists recorded moderate solar activity in 2022

Moscow, Dec 6 (Prensa Latina) Russian specialists analyzed satellite data and considered the Sun's activity was moderate in 2022, the Russian Space Agency (Roscosmos) reported.

This year, the magnetometer of the Arktika-M satellite recorded a moderate disturbance of the Earth’s magnetosphere, with small isolated peaks of solar activity.

According to Russian Space Systems experts, the Sun’s “relatively calm mood” has to do with the fact that the solar cycle is at its beginning, and a peak is yet to come, the agency’s report reads.

Roscosmos noted that heliogeophysical equipment is installed on the Arktika-M, Electro-L and Meteor-M satellites, launched between 2019 and 2021.

These two satelites make it possible to follow the deviations of the Earth’s magnetic and radiation fields caused by solar activity.

Aleksei Kovalev, head of the Russian Space Systems Onboard Target Instrument Development Department, said that no catastrophic phenomenon has been recorded on the Sun this year.

The instruments worked continuously, except for brief planned breaks during orbit correction and satellite spins, the scientist added.
