Watch today's solar flare erupt from the sun

Mar 8, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Grist Magazine

NASA notes : "One of the most dramatic features is the way the entire surface of the sun seems to ripple with the force of the eruption." Badass! The first flare was the second largest of this solar cycle , and it's traveling at 1,300 miles per second, which means it could sweep the continental United States in less than three seconds.
