Eruptive M-CLASS SOLAR FLARE !
A strong M3.5 Solar Flare was reported at 23:19 UTC yesterday around active region 11931. The impulsive eruption occurred while the active region was rotating onto the earth-facing side of the disk.

M-CLASS SOLAR FLARE:

 

For more than two weeks, solar activity has been low. Hours ago, a new sunspot broke the quiet with an M3.5-class solar flare. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the extreme ultraviolet flash at 23:16 UT on Dec. 19th:

Radiation from the flare produced a brief wave of ionization in the upper atmosphere over the Pacific side of Earth. Otherwise, the blast was not particularly geoeffective. It did not produce an Earth-directed CME.

The instigating sunspot is still emerging over the sun’s southeastern limb. Without a top-down view of the sunspot’s magnetic field, it is difficult to assess the region’s flare-producing potential. NOAA forecasters are estimating a 30% chance of more M-class flares on Dec. 20th
