A long solar flare just erupted from the sun. See the video.

The sun flexed its considerable magnetic muscles today (June 13), and two solar spacecraft captured the show on video.

Earth’s star unleashed a long-duration solar flare early this morning, blasting high-energy radiation into space for about three hours. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), which has been studying the sun from Earth orbit since 2010, observed the dramatic event in multiple wavelengths.
