Sun flare

NASA added to its stunning collection of videos of solar activity with the 12 second video hosted here of a solar flare on September 8. NASA’s press release tag: “Just as sunspot 1105 was turning away from Earth on Sept. 8, the active region erupted, producing a C3-class solar flare (peak @ 2330 UT) and a fantastic prominence. This is a three color closeup of the activity taken by Solar Dynamic Observatory.”
