Powerful Solar Flares Recorded on NASA Camera

The sun gave a dramatic light show on June 10, with a sunspot emitting two bright solar flares in quick succession. NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory captured the release of the flares, which were powerful enough to temporarily interfere with radio communications in Europe. Solar flares are measured by class, with the X-class being the most powerful as they emit X-rays and UV radiation. The flares on June 10 measured X2.2 and X1.5.
