It’s been awhile since I posted anything about solar flares. (Though, it’s also been awhile since I’ve written about anything in general  … Hopefully the astronomy news hanging out in the dark tunnels of my email archive will soon see the light.) Anyway, here’s a video of X-Class solar flares, a first for 2013.

The video was taken earlier this month when, within a 24-hour time period, the sun emitted three fairly large flares.
