Whip it

NASA has just released photos and video of the sun and the giant solar flare that happened on August, 31. The “solar whip” was 500,000 miles long and travelled at over 900 miles per second. Also worth a peek is the resulting aurora that was seen from the Yukon. Just a little reminder of how tiny we really are. For more check it out here.

And be sure to check out the video with different filters for all sorts of pretty.
