The duration of the flare wasn't real long. It might add to the northern lights but that's about all. If it was earth directed and a long duration
flare, it could cause more problems even though it is only an M flare. Two or three flares in a row causes problems also if they are in the M's.
Wait, we have some good size sunspots on the sun.
