London: The sun`s magnetic field has now undergone a total reversal of its polarity, which marks Solar Cycle 24`s midpoint, which is going to be completed in 11 years time, NASA has revealed.
According to NASA, has said that the sun has "flipped upside down", with its north and south poles reversed to reach the Solar Cycle 24`s midpoint, the Independent reported.
Now, the magnetic fields have again started moving in opposite directions to finish the 22 year long process that will end in the poles switching their places once again.
