NASA claims a huge spot has appeared on the sun that could send dangerous solar flares towards Earth.

The sunspot, named AR2665, is 74,560 miles (120,000 kilometres) wide and big enough to be seen from Earth.

Experts have warned that the spot is large enough to produce 'M-class' solar flares, which can cause major radio blackouts on Earth, which would knock out communications satellites and create radiation storms.
