solar flareThis image of the October 29th solar flare was taken by the Extreme ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (EIT) on board NASA's Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) spacecraft. It shows a tremendous burst of x-ray light at a wavelength of 195 Angstroms associated with the flare. The flare was so bright that it overloaded the instrument's detector, causing the horizontal artifacts in the image. Courtesy: NASA.
