In case you weren't looking at the sun yesterday....

... I thought you might like to know and "see" what happened. It's called an X-class sun flare.

Yesterday, an active region on the sun – basically, a collection of magnetically
active sunspots – popped off a series of flares that were actually fairly energetic.

There's a video available from NASA that I watched more than once. The thing was gi-normous! Mother Nature is so cool.
