Where are gamma rays found in the Sun? That means the sun’s total gamma-ray emission is most intense along its equator at solar minimum and at its poles during maximum.
What type of rays does the Sun emit? Solar radiation includes visible light, ultraviolet light, infrared, radio waves, X-rays, and gamma rays.
Can the Sun emit a gamma-ray burst? Working with NASA’s Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO), Fermi has found that solar flares happening on the far side of the sun can trigger additional bursts of gamma rays on the side facing Earth.
Are gamma rays stronger than the Sun? But gamma rays can be far more energetic than that, and can be in the billions or even trillions of MeVs. Since the electrical charge of cosmic rays means they can be deflected by magnetic fields, and the Sun has a powerful magnetic field, only the most powerful ones can strike the Sun.
