Not a doom! thread, just mightily impressive. The sunspot in question is the largest of the cycle and currently facing Earth head-on:





"A major solar measuring X1.2 was detected on Tuesday afternoon peaking at 18:30 UTC and remains in progress. The source of the eruption was region 1943, with interaction between sunspot 1944. Because the flare appears to be long in duration, a coronal mass ejection is possible. The blast site is in a great geoeffective position for Earth directed eruptions. Attached image by the Solar Dyanamics Observatory (SDO) below, captures a "wave" of plasma racing away from the blast site. Stay tuned for the latest updates."

This is in addition to another recent large burst (M7.2) from the same geoeffective vicinity.

X1.2 is not all that big as far as solar flares go. They do look cool though.

Thats a decent size. If it hits us right, plus put it together with the M 7.7 thats suppose to hit tomorrow may cause some caca to hit the fan. Also whats up with Artis SolarIMG? Its not showing the flare at all. I find they dont always show the flares coming but they post it.

With the grid being so strained from the blizzards on the east coast, I wonder if this small X flare will be the last straw

LIGHTS OUT....
