"Early this morning (Sept. 6), the sun released two powerful solar flares - the second was the most powerful in more than a decade.

The surge of activity might seem surprising, as the sun is approaching its solar minimum, with the lowest levels of activity in its 11-year cycle.

"We are heading toward solar minimum, but the interesting thing about that is you can still have events, they're just not as frequent," Steenburgh said. "We're not having X-flares every day for a week, for instance - the activity is less frequent, but no less potentially strong."
