 (KMOV) -- NASA has released video of a solar flare erupting on the surface of the sun on Wednesday, April 2.

Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation and, according to NASA, the one in this video is classified as only a "Mid-Level" solar flare.

Scientists say radiation from solar flares cannot pass through Earth's atmosphere, but can affect GPS and satellite communications.
