Have you ever heard the sun? Listen to the strange sounds of solar flares erupting.


Do you know how a solar storm sounds like?

This solar eruption sounds like waves crashing on a beach during a thunderstorm.

As already introduced in a previous post, a large solar flare erupted from an unexpected sunspot on July 8, 2014. And this M6-class flare had a noisy side-effect (solar radio emissions) as recorded by amateur radio astronomer Thomas Ashcraft in New Mexico.

This video gives an idea of what a 8.4-class solar flare sounds like… Impressive!

The audio sample and video capture the dynamic character of the solar flare, which definitively sounds like a raging sea crashing on a sandy beach… Amazing!

What are solar radio emissions?

Radio bursts are created by shock waves moving through the sun’s atmosphere, which excite sun plasma instabilities that emit static-y radio waves. To each plasma instability corresponds a solar radio burst type. Those recorded by Thomas Ashcraft are from Type II and Type IV.
