Solar Flare And Eclipse Of Sun By Earth Captured In Stunning Nasa SDO Video

It was a busy day for Nasa's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) on Wednesday.

Not only did it capture a pretty impressive solar flare but it was also rudely interrupted by the Earth itself.

The SDO is actually a number of different satellites fixed on the Sun.

The images they capture individually are stunning but when combined give an incredible overview of the power at the centre of our solar system.
