Watch the sun guys from solar flares in this fascinating NASA video

A new NASA video from a spacecraft that sees the sun has captured a spectacular view of solar flares erupting from the star this week just before Halloween.

The video, taken by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Orbiter, shows fascinating close-ups of solar flares blowing from the sun between Monday and Thursday (October 25-28), ending with a large X1 class solar storm that could amplify Earth’s Northern Lights exhibits on Halloween weekend.

Brighter than a glittering ghost, faster than a flick of a black cat’s tail, the sun threw a spell in our direction, just in time for Halloween, “NASA officials wrote in a video description.
