Solar unleashes highly effective X2-class flare (video)

The solar blasted out a superpowerful X-class flare on Friday afternoon (March 3), and a NASA spacecraft captured footage of the dramatic occasion.

The photo voltaic flare — an intense burst of high-energy radiation — erupted Friday at 12:52 p.m. EST (1752 GMT). It registered as an X2.1, NASA officers mentioned (opens in new tab), which means it was significantly intense. (Photo voltaic scientists categorize potent flares into three classes, with C being the weakest, M being medium-strength and X probably the most highly effective.)
