MASSIVE Solar Flare on February 24, 2011

Posted by WorldScott on Mar. 02, 2011

An extremely impressive solar flare was capture by NASA last week. The footage they released was vertical so I transformed it to be horizontal. This flare was captured in ultraviolet light and a false color of orange was given to the UV video. This eruption lasted for 90 minutes and this video represents those 90 minutes captured at 24 second intervals to give a smooth motion. This footage captured one of the most impressive solar prominences ever recorded by NASA.
