NASA says they captured a massive solar flare erupting from the sun.
In a blog post, the space agency said the solar flare occurred Wednesday, peaking at 1:35 p.m. EST.
The incredible moment was captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, which is always watching the sun.
The burst was powerful enough to cause a short-wave radio blackout in some areas.
Some airplane pilots, boat captains, and ham radio operators may have noticed the disturbance.
Nasa classified the event as an x-class flare.
More powerful solar flares can pose dangers to satellites, power lines, and even astronauts in space.
