Uploader comment: The sun emitted a significant solar flare, peaking at 2:14 pm EDT on October 20, 2012 NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) captured this image of an M9-class flare on Oct 20, 2012 at 2:14 pm EDT. This image shows light at a wavelength of 131 Angstroms, which corresponds to material at 10 million Kelvin, and is a good wavelength for observing flares.
