A Nasa satellite has captured spectacular images of a solar flare erupting from the eastern side of the sun.

Judged only to be medium-sized by the US space agency, the powerful flare erupted from the sun on Monday and was caught on camera by Nasa's SDO satellite.

The ejections of plasma, known as coronal mass ejections (CME), can cause electrical storms and vivid displays of the aurora borealis phenomena on Earth, but this flare was not fired in our direction according to scientists.
