SDO, American National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) satellite pictured on early Tuesday the greatest explosion in solar in 5 years.
The largest explosion of the solar cycle occurred at 08:05am. Scientists say the eruption took place on the side of the sun that was not facing Earth. Therefore, the impact on satellites and communication systems will be little.
The radiation unleashed in the extreme amount will not affect humans despite it passes through atmosphere noted scientists. "There were reports of brief short-wave radio disruptions in Asia, but little else," said Space scientist Joe Kunches at the government's Space Weather Prediction Center in Colorado.
The sun is transitioning into a busier cycle. Scientists estimate a spike in the number of solar eruptions over the next three years.
The last strong flare was in December 2006.
