Solar radio bursts are short duration radio wave emissions from the sun’s surface usually coinciding with coronal mass ejection events (disturbances on the sun’s surface). These bursts are like a radio transmitter on the sun and the signal can well be received on earth. In fact, unlike terrestrial radio, the solar radio bursts cover a wide spectrum of frequencies from UHF down to HF (shortwave). Solar radio bursts are relatively rare. Now, with the onset of a new solar cycle (# 25) they occur more frequently and the above image shows such an event recorded by a solar observatory in Australia on 26th August, 2021 at about 23:22 UTC (GMT).
