Nasa's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) has captured images of the sun producing solar flares. At least one mid-level flare has been identified from last week, followed by six less intense flares. The SDO has now released a video that captures the flurry of activity.
Should We Be Concerned?
While a solar flare is an intense burst of radiation, we can be rest assured that it is not able to penetrate the Earth's atmosphere to harm anything on Earth. However, if the flares reach a certain intensity, they can disturb GPS and communication signals in our atmosphere.
