Photo 22 Aug 12 notes Rapid Fire Flaring by NASA Goddard Photo and Video on Flickr.One rather small active region popped off no fewer than 15 minor flares over 18 hours (July 30-31, 2102). The activity of diminutive sunspot AR1538 is a sign of tension in the region’s magnetic field. The active region show to the right also contributed another three flares during the same time period. The images were taken in a wavelength of extreme ultraviolet light.
