NASA Captures Sun Emitting X-Class Flares

NASA Captures Sun Emitting X-Class Flares

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory has released the images of the solar eruptions that it captured on June 10th and 11th. The most noticeable fact is that in these two days, the sun has erupted with three different X-class flares. All three flares originated from an active region on the sun that recently rotated into view over the left limb of the sun. The flare on June 11th was classified as an X1.0 and it peaked at 5:06 a.m. EDT.

Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation, but these harmful flares cannot pass through the Earth’s atmosphere to physically affect humans. However, at high intensities they can disturb the atmosphere in the layer where GPS and communications signals travel.
