Thanks for your response.
Just a question, would you possibly know of a source that explains how to read the graphs and diagrams on the sun? Like the one I posted?

WOW! A X2.8, that's a big one!
I'm assuming this is also NOT earth directed? Hopefully it calms down before it turns that far.

Got this in my travels though it was interesting.
Haarp Status shared The Weather Space.com's photo.
ALERT! Haarp Status Network is down. An X-Class Solar Flare has disrupted the systems and we were just knocked offline~!
The Sun, the light at the centre of our solar system is fast approaching the end of its 11 year solar cycle. With the height of solar activity reached, the solar maximum, is it now time for our Sun to slumber? NASA, not short of an opinion on all things scientific expect the current solar cycle to end mid-2013, while Japanese researchers armed with their own observations dispute NASA’s predictions.
Suggesting instead that May this year will see the Sun’s pole shift, temporarily creating a quad pole magnetic field until the pole reversal completes and the next solar cycle begins.
