// isn’t she a ball of purely beautiful terrifying energy //

captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Obsevatory, this solar flare on 19th Dec 2014, rated as a X1.8-class flare; where the solar radiation cannot penetrate our atmosphere enough to effect humans, but does disturb the atmospheric layer where GPS and communication signals travel.

it was just too beautiful & interesting an image not to share!

“i will wade out
till my thighs are steeped in burning flowers
I will take the sun in my mouth
and leap into the ripe air
Alive
with closed eyes
to dash against darkness
in the sleeping curves of my body
Shall enter fingers of smooth mastery
with chasteness of sea-girls
Will i complete the mystery
of my flesh
I will rise
After a thousand years
lipping
flowers
And set my teeth in the silver of the moon”
-ee cummings
