May 11 2012 Sunspot 1476 is on Fire w/ CME's & Solar Flares Bound for Ea...

Region AR1476 is now right in the middle of the solar disk meaning it is pointed right at us and continues to dissipate its energy in various sized bursts of modest to strong flares and CME's. That output belies its appearance of large sunspots still getting larger and entangled magnetic fields. Forecasters at NOAA are keeping vigil should things break loose.

Solar wind speed: 559.0 km/sec

X-ray Solar Flares
6-hr max: C6 1738 UT May11
