Three New M-Class Flares Within 10 Hours

Enhanced geomagnetic conditions are ongoing since late yesterday. Since then, Three M-class flares have fired off from sunspot region 1476; all occurring within a ten hour period. These enhanced geomagnetic conditions are expected to prevail for another 24 hours.

A CME (coronal mass ejection) was propagated from at least one of the M-flares. In addition to the flare and cme activity, the large coronal hole which passed the Sun's central meridian, has produced high-speed solar winds (charged particles) which were Earth's directed. As a result, a moderate geo-magnetic storm was generated registering K=4 on the Kp Index.



At this time solar flaring activity is down to C-class flaring. However, active region NOAA 1476 has a beta-gamma-delta configuration and has the potential for additional M-class flares, and a smaller chance for an X-class flare eruption.
