According to Space.com, the explosion occurred Tuesday June 7 and had its peak at about 2:41 am. The coronal mass ejection’s type M flare that accompanied the eruption extended itself outwards for a period of three hours to then get back to the sun’s surface.

The explosion ejected solar plasma and particles at temperatures estimated around 143,540 degrees Fahrenheit or 79,727 degrees Celsius. “It’s nothing we really have to worry about,” said C. Alex Young, a solar astrophysicist at NASA.

Our sun is experiencing activity related to its eleven year cycle identified as solar cycle 24. Although scientists estimate that this eruption should not have major consequences on Earth, history shows that the only thing we know about the sun, is that we still have a lot to learn.
