Looking over some of the timeline of some of the bigger flares, it seems apparent something massive could well occur over the next strong solar maximum. Just a question of whether it will be pointed toward Earth But yes - interesting - and I think it's one of the only X class flares this year isn't it?
Based on currently available LASCO imagery the CME developed into a full halo. The CME could impact Earth on August 11 and cause unsettled to active conditions with a chance of minor storm intervals.
