This recent image from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) shows areas of intense solar activity that can be the source of flares and Coronal Mass Ejections. The EVE instrument on SDO has provided scientists with new information that energy from some solar flares is stronger and lasts longer than previously thought. (Courtesy NASA/SDO/AIA)
