X1.9 solar flare from region 11302
Region 11302 is magnetically very complex, particularly in the central part, and has multiple magnetic delta structures.

This explosion did produce a CME, however it does not look to be very significant at this time.

Possibility this region will produce more X-flares in the coming days(4-7days) when it's turning into earth's view(position).

Update: this region also just produced a M9 flare
Waiting on more info on the CME when soho data is available

Soho Lasco C3 movie on the two events from 11302

Long Duration M-Class Flare + Bright CME: Another strong Solar Flare reaching M7.1 has taken place after the initial X-Class flare earlier today and was very long in duration. A bright Full-Halo CME is included with this event and a portion of this cloud may be earth directed. You can view a presentation I created below.

CME from the M7 event.

CME evolution model


Latest update from

Flare activity has been at an extreme level for the past 3 hours as both regions 11295 and 11302 have produced several M flares.
First region 11295 was the origin of an M1.7 flare at 16:58, then region 11302 produced an M3.1 flare at 17:24 and an M2.8 flare at 18:05.
Region 11295 was the source of another eruption at 18:19 UTC, this time an M2.7 flare.
Finally region 11302 managed an M3.0 flare at 19:21 UTC.
Region 11302 continues to be very complex in the central part with opposite polarity umbrae hard to separate in SDO 4K images.
Region 11295 has developed a strong magnetic delta in the the trailing penumbra and could soon produce a major flare. New region S1231 is rotating into view at the northeast limb as an HSX group while new region S1232 has emerged between regions 11302 and 11301.

Thanks for posting. Last I read one was expected, I guess this is it.

On a less serious note, hope a big CME is not why Obama is going to bunker down.

Omg, that makes sense.
Time to start digging my own bunker, hope its not too late!

No need for a bunker.
Just buy a lot of alu-paper and wrap yourself in that.

For those intersted.
It's a link to the GOES 15 satellite
That's the satellite who gets the data you see on the X-ray flux monitor.

What do you mean sunscreen?
When i go out and play in the sun, i always wear my mask. No sunburns for me

Flares from 11302 so far.

More M and X flares are likely due to its magnetic config βγδ ( Beta-Gamma-Delta)

Region 11302 has a small magnetic delta structure in the northeastern part of the leading penumbra.

A much more significant delta exists in the central penumbra where a realtively large positive polarity umbra is sandwiched between two fairly large negative polarity umbrae.

As long as this delta exists the region will continue to produce M and X flares.
