A monster solar flare erupted early on Oct. 19 from a huge sunspot that may just be getting warmed up. The sun fired off an X-class solar flare, the most powerful type, that peaked at 1:01 a.m. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory spacecraft captured photos and video of the intense sun storm, which researchers classified as an X1.1 flare. According to Spaceweather.com, the flare erupted from a sunspot called Active Region 2192, which has since grown to become 78,000 miles wide, which is almost as big as the planet Jupiter.
