The sun emits a huge solar flare from the new sunspot that comes into view

On Tuesday (May 3) the active sun emitted a powerful X-class glow, our star’s strongest experience, but not in the direction of Earth.

The solar flare peaked at 9:25 am EDT (1325 GMT) and was filmed by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, the agency tweeted. No specific guidance on the effects on Earth has been discussed, but the auroras are unlikely to be amplified as this event took place on the sun’s left lower limb.
