Can we feel a heat change when a solar flare happens?

    Solar flares are “felt” by humans more through electric currents, not through a temperature change.

    Solar flares are thought to be caused by sudden magnetic field changes in areas where the sun’s magnetic field is concentrated. Solar flares are accompanied by the release of gas, electrons, visible light, ultraviolet light and X-rays. When this radiation and particles reach the Earth’s magnetic field, they interact with it at the poles to produce the auroras. Solar flares can also disrupt communications, satellites, navigation systems and even power grids. The radiation and particles ionize the atmosphere and prevent the movement of radio waves between satellites and the ground or between the ground and the ground. The ionized particles in the atmosphere can induce electric currents in power lines and cause power surges. These power surges can overload a power grid and cause blackouts.
