Solar Eruption on New Year's Eve

Now this how you ring in a New Year! A solar eruption occurred on the sun December 31, 2012. To put the sun and this solar eruption into perspective, according to NASA, "the length of the eruption extends about 160,000 miles out from the Sun. With Earth about 7,900 miles in diameter, this relatively minor eruption is about 20 times the diameter of our planet." Wow!
