Three X-class Flares in 24 Hours

The sun erupted with an X1.7-class solar flare on May 12, 2013. This is a blend of two images of the flare from NASAs Solar Dynamics Observatory: One image shows light in the 171-angstrom wavelength, the other in 131 angstroms. Credit: NASA/SDO/AIA

Solar Eruptions - A Coronal Mass Ejection The swirling inner layers of our sun cause charged particles to generate magnetic fields. As charges accumulate on the surface, magnetic field lines readjust themselves and release huge quantities of matter and electromagnetic radiation into space. This particular Mass Ejection is traveling at over 900 miles per second and has an energy level equivalent to 160,000,000,000 megatons of TNT. Credit: NASA/Solar Dynamics Observatory/Goddard…
