The whole story

Quote :
Not just one, but two strong solar flares burst off the sun's surface this week -- and now Earth is getting hit with the aftermath.

While the solar storm headed our way may affect power lines, radio transmissions, communication systems and satellites to a small degree, scientists say it's nothing to worry about.

"We're not scared of this one," Tom Berger, director of the Space Weather Prediction Center in Boulder, Colorado, told the AP.

A strong X1.6-class solar flare erupted from a sunspot on Wednesday, following a previous flare that blasted out of the same spot on Monday, LiveScience reported. Just check out the action captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory in the video above.
