Sunspot region 1157 has released a moderate M6-class flare which sits in the Sun's northern hemisphere heading toward the eastern limb. There is a more than likely chance Earth will experience a moderate geomagnetic storm within the next 48 to 72 hours.
BEHEMOTH SUNSPOT 1158: Sunspot 1158 is growing rapidly and crackling with C-class solar flares. The active region is now more than 100,000 km wide with at least a dozen Earth-sized dark cores scattered beneath its unstable magnetic canopy. Earth-directed eruptions are likely in the hours ahead.
