On March 23, 13 powerful solar flares occurred, 12 of which were M-class and one even more powerful, X-class. These data were submitted by the heliogeophysics service of the Institute of Applied Geophysics (FGBU IPG).

The first high-class X1.1 flare lasted 54 minutes and occurred in the X-ray range at 04:33 Moscow time on March 23. Later, 12 more M-class flares of different strengths were recorded in the same sunspot group, starting with M1.0 at 09:55 and ending with M5.4 at 17:02.

A representative of the institute explained that such activity is associated with the upcoming peak of solar activity. Flares may impact Earth, causing disruptions to radio communications and navigation, but the situation is currently under control.
