Note: Really feeling this hyder flare intensely. It’s been a very uncomfortable day….shaky, hard to focus & stay grounded, pressure on my crown & third eye, and just feeling jittery in general.
Hope you’re having a better ride today 🙂 Have a great week! Namaste…
Hyder’s explanation is that, in the case of the Hyder flare, some or even most of the filament material, instead of suffering acceleration and ejection, falls down the sides of the magnetic ridge and interacts with the lower chromospheric material producing the flare. If the infall process is symmetrical, then the double parallel ribbon flare will result, if asymmetrical, then only one ribbon results. If the infall is sporadic, or the material insufficient, then only bright knots of flare are produced. Hyder did calculations to show that the kinetic energy of the infalling material should be sufficient to provide the required flare energy release observed.
