VIDEO of that recent Solar Flare captured by NASA/SDO
"When a rather large-sized (M 3.6 class) flare occurred near the edge of the Sun, it blew out a gorgeous, waving mass of erupting plasma that swirled and twisted over a 90-minute period (Feb. 24, 2011)"

AGAIN, from a different perspective and different filtering:
TWINKLE from Science News on Vimeo.
The most powerful solar flare to erupt from the sun in more than four years can be seen in this video taken by the Solar Dynamics Observatory. The flare appears as a brief flash just below and to the right of center, about two seconds into the video.
BBC has a great video on perspective, explaining just how small a nanometer is. It's REALLY cool, but they won't allow me to embed it here. Just go the their article, it's near the bottom: "Microscope with 50-nanometre resolution demonstrated"
