Origin and Scope of the Eruption

  • The eruption, originating from three sunspots and a large magnetic filament, covered approximately one-third of the solar surface facing Earth.
  • Sympathetic flares occur due to multiple eruptions across the Sun's magnetic field, linked by massive magnetic field loops above the solar surface.
