Solar Flare Eruption: Galactic Color by NASA
The solar flare eruption, recently captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, stretches hundreds of thousands of miles across the south side of the Sun, nearly twice the distance from earth to the moon. The flare appears darker against the sun because it is much cooler than the corona and can have effects here on earth. - Daily Mail
