NASA's SDO Provides Images of Significant Solar Flare

The sun emitted a significant solar flare, peaking at 7:49 p.m. EST on Feb. 24, 2014. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, which keeps a constant watch on the sun, captured images of the event.

This flare is classified as an X4.9-class flare. X-class denotes the most intense flares, while the number provides more information about its strength. An X2 is twice as intense as an X1, an X3 is three times as intense, etc.

SDO footage of February 24, 2014 X4.9 flare in three wavelengths: 304, 171 and 1600 angstroms.
