Washington: The sun emitted its solar flare on October 25, 2013, which peaked at 11:03 a.m. EDT, and was it`s third in the past two days.
This flare has been classified as an X2.1 class while "X-class" denotes the most intense flares, while the number provides more information about its strength.
About two weeks back it had released its most powerful solar flare in nearly two months, which resulted in a small geomagnetic storm, as charged particles from the sun passed by Earth.
