NASA Captures Giant Solar Storm

Last Thursday, the sun delivered the goods, unleashing a beautiful solar flare. The eruptions lasted somewhere around 90 minutes, and the plasma flares were all captured in high def by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, a project dedicated to studying the sun and its impact on space weather. This footage comes soon after another groundbreaking NASA video – the First 360 Degree View of the Sun.
