NASA astronomer Tony Philips reported that the sun is in a phase called the ‘Closing phase’ that interrupts all solar activity commonly known on large scales.
This phenomenon can considerably alter the conditions of the Earth’s climate and, therefore, the appearance of different phenomena, such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions or even severe frosts.
“The solar magnetic field has weakened, allowing extra cosmic rays to penetrate the solar system,” explains Philips.
Likewise, a general NASA study ensures that this solar phenomenon is likely to alter the Earth’s climate. “However, researchers are realizing that even these seemingly small variations can have a significant effect on Earth’s climate,” explains NASA.
IT IS NOT THE FIRST TIME THAT THIS PHENOMENON OCCURS
This situation happened three times in the past: in 1790, 1815 and 1830; years of earthquake and volcanic eruption seasons, such as those experienced by Mount Tambora in Indonesia.
