Using Kyoto University's new 3.8M Seimei Telescope, in collaboration with the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan, astronomers succeeded in detecting 12 stellar flare phenomena on AD Leonis. One of these flares was 20 times larger than those emitted by our own sun, categorizing it a 'superflare'. Subsequent data analysis presents new insight into these explosive phenomena.
