Impulsive class M1.0 flare Earthbound HD
Best viewed with screen expanded.
A moderate solar flare reaching M1.0 was observed around Sunspot 1726 at 10:29 UTC this morning. The blast itself was impulsive in nature and a large Coronal Mass Ejection is not expected. This region maintains a fairly impressive magnetic structure, especially within the trailing spot cluster and has the potential for an even stronger event.
