NASA’s orbiting Solar Dynamics Observatory captured yet another solar flare blasting from the overactive sunspot that triggered the same radio blackouts and stunning aurora displays on Earth earlier this week.

The spacecraft, which watches earth‘s parent star from 22,000 miles (36,000 kilometers) above the planet’s surface, captured the flare, classified as a medium-strength type M, on Thursday (March 31) at 2:35 pm EDT (1835 GMT).
