NASA announces that the Sun emitted a fairly large solar flare on April 16, 2022, reaching a peak at 1:34 p.m. EST.

Being such an important event, NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory tracked the Sun's activity from that time and took a photo showing some of the solar flare.

NASA and ESA are working on missions to research and observe the Sun's activity, as these fairly frequent solar flares may partially or completely affect radio communications, NASA-ISS communications, electrical networks, GPS systems, and satellites, if any of them is in the direction in which the solar flare hits our planet, Earth.

This time, however, the eruption was a serious one, being classified by researchers as a class X eruption.

This class denotes the most intense eruptions, so NASA may have caught one of the most intense eruptions.
