The Hawaii-based James Clerk Maxwell Telescope (JCMT) has discovered a stellar flare of 1

0 billion times more than the sun's solar flares. planets, giving insight into how these celestial bodies were born.
                                


"A discovery of this magnitude could have happened in Hawaii," Dr. Steve Mairs, astronomer and leader of the team that discovered the stellar flare. "Using the JCMT, we are studying the birthplace of the youngest stars."

The JCMT Transient Survey team recorded the 1,500-year-old flare using the telescope's state-of-the-world. high-frequency radio technology and sophisticated image analysis techniques. Identified by astronomer Dr. Steve Mairs, supercooled camera known as "SCUBA-2," which is a frigid -459.5 degrees Fahrenheit

The flare is thought to be caused by a disruption in an intense magnetic field actively funneling material onto a young, growing star in it gains mass from its surroundings. The Orion Nebula.

Located near the summit of Maunakea, the JCMT is the largest and only telescope in the northern hemisphere capable of making this type of discovery. The Stellar Flare Observation was made as part of a monthly tracking program.
