Captured on Thursday, February 24, this solar flare is considerably smaller than the Class X flare on Valentine’s Day, but still significant, Space.com reports:
Thursday’s solar flare erupted from a new spot on the sun called sunspot 1163, according to the website Spaceweather.com, which monitors space weather and skywatching events. The flare was not aimed at Earth, and so should not pose a concern to satellites or other systems.
Very cool video. I think the sun has woken up from it’s recent quiet stretch.
