NASA Catches Solar Flares On Camera

NASA caught a few solar flares on camera this week.

The pictures were taken from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory.

It watches the sun 24/7.

The photos show three mid-level solar flares from Sunday and Monday.

Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation that, when intense enough, can interrupt GPS and communications signs on Earth.

This type of radiation does not affect people.
