A model of solar flare is proposed, taking into account the high temperature (∼109K) produced by the shock wave generated by the hydromagnetic wave at the junction of sunspot and the area just outside it and subsequent explosive hydrogen burning, producing the desired 1028–29 ergs of a solar flare.
