NASA’s Solar Dynamic Observatory this week (Oct 2) captured an M7.3 flare, a mid-sized flare that posed little threat to Earth. It did however provide a spectacular show for SDO to capture and send back to NASA. Capturing the immense power of our favourite star as magnetic loops larger than planets burst from the suns surface.
Presented for your viewing pleasure is the latest video to come from our eyes in the sky, SDO staring at the Sun. Sit back, relax and let the solar dance began.
