Two Flares Give Warning

January 8, 2014
A large active region that just rotated into view is giving off warning signs that this could be the source of powerful solar storms. It has already shot off two smaller flares (Jan. 2, 2014) as shown here in a wavelength of extreme ultraviolet light. We will be keeping our eye on this one! Credit: Solar Dynamics Observatory.
