A strong solar flare has erupted on the Sun in early January and it has been captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics observatory. Informing about the same NASA Sun and Space tweeted, "#ICYMI: In early January of 2023, a strong solar flare erupted on the Sun.

NASA's Solar in Dynamics Observatory captured the event." It can be known that eruptions on the Sun differ in various ways."Eruptions on the Sun differ in how they look, how they travel, and even in the way they impact us here on Earth.

Solar flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs) both involve enormous explosions of energy – and at times may even occur simultaneously," another tweet by NASA Sun and Space read.The research organisation further explained the difference between solar flare and coronal mass ejections (CME).

A solar flare is a powerful burst of energy that can be spotted as a sudden flash of light. Fun fact: Traveling at the speed of light, the energy from flares can take 8 minutes to reach Earth!, NASA said.While coronal mass ejections – or CMEs – are large clouds of solar plasma and embedded magnetic fields released into space after a solar eruption.
