A spectacular and unique solar flare was captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO).

The coronal blast also called Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) reportedly looked like it covered half of the sun’s surface. This was revealed by NASA’s official website, June 7, 2011.

Further  reports stated  that  the  solar  flare  was unique  because it was observed   that  there  were    cooler material  in  many  places  of  the  solar  flare.

On June   8 and  9,  the radiation effect  of  this  spectacular solar  flare  will  reach  the  earth’s  atmosphere.

NASA scientists however,   said there is  no  imminent danger to  earth, but  stated that  it  was  beautiful and  that sky watchers  should be  able  to  view  spectacular auroras , especially  in  the  Northern latitudes.
