NASA video shows “graceful” solar flare


NASA has released images of a solar flare captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory.

This particular solar flare was released on April 2nd.

According to NASA, harmful radiation from a flare can’t physically affect us, but when they’re intense enough, they can disrupt communications, including GPS technology.

NASA says this was a mid-level “M” class flare. The larger flares fall into the “X” category.
