The folks at NASA are prolific in releasing mind blowing photographs of the solar system on a regular basis and should be a regular stop on your web travels for a bit of inspiration. But this week was something pretty special when our sun decided to release a few solar flares which NASA managed to capture on film. We could look at this stuff all day!
Don't forget to check out the full size originals over at NASA's site.
And just for good measure, here is a video of the event. Jeesh, I love NASA.
