A Monster Solar Flare

A Monster Solar Flare

A solar flare occurs when there is an eruption of high energy radiation from the sun’s surface. According to Science magazine, the second one was the most powerful flare in more than a decade. 

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Space Weather Prediction Center, the solar flares resulted in radio blackouts and a loss of low frequency communications used in navigation for approximately an hour.
