Sungrazers are small comets that create comas and tails as they come close to the sun. The visible sungrazers range in size from 3.5 to 63 meter in diameter. Every year, the sun attracts hundred of sungrazers, which collide with the sun and produce hundreds of sunspots.

The explosions range from millions to trillions of Megatons of TNT. On July 23, 2002, researchers using NASA's RHESSI spacecraft took pictures of solar flare's gamma and x-ray radiation, which is millions to billions of times more energetic than visible light. After the explosions, the lingering metric ton of antimatter could have powered the United States for two years.


The 23,000 metric ton, 30 meters in diameter antimatter sungrazer created a billion Megatons of TNT explosion that could have supplied the World's total energy needs for 10,000 years.

On November 4, 2003, physicists observed a record-breaking X-45 class solar flares. The movies show the solar explosions and flares from the antimatter sungrazer that collided with the sun.


The solar flares produced x-ray radiation that was equivalent to 5,000 Suns.

Another sungrazer created an enormous sunspot and record breaking X-Class Solar Flare on November 5, 2003. Other examples are: December 23, 1996, June 2, 1998, and October 28, 2003.
