A solar flare explodes on May 9 in an image captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory.

The phenomenon was short-lived and didn’t spark any coronal mass ejections, huge clouds of charged solar particles that erupt from the sun’s upper atmosphere.

The flare is shown in the 131 Angstrom wavelength of light—typically colored teal—which gave scientists the most detailed picture of the flare.
