Nasa detects longest and highest-energy light from a solar flare giving out 1,000 times the sun's normal radiation
During the March 7 eruption, the sun briefly became the brightest object in the gamma-ray sky

The flux of gamma rays was 1,000 times greater than the sun's steady output

The eruption lasted 20 hours - 2.5 times longer than any event on record



The longest and highest-energy light ever emitted from a solar blast was detected earlier this year, it has emerged.

Nasa's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope recorded the powerful eruption on the surface of the sun on March 7.

The flare produced such an outpouring of gamma rays - a form of light with even greater energy than X-rays - that the sun briefly became the brightest object in the gamma-ray sky.
