Over a five day period, between 1800 UT October 23, 2013 and 1500 UT October 28, 2013, 26 M- and X-class flares were detected on the sun. This video, made by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) shows 23 of the 26 events.
Also shown are the associated coronal mass ejections (CME), large clouds of solar material ejected off the sun into space. Images of these CME's were captured by the ESA/NASA Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) spacecraft.
