NASA SDO – Flare Galore, July 5-6, 2012

July 7, 2012

Over the last 8 days the active region AR1515 has almost traveled across the Earth facing side of the Sun. The last 5 days this region has been strobing with C- and M-class solar flares and in this video from July 5, 07:00 UT through July 6, 13:30 UT we follow this region as it continues its journey across the solar disk.

How many flares can you count? There are at least 14 right there… it’s certainly a flare galore.
