Major X1.2 Solar Flare – May 15, 2013
Another X-Class Solar Flare !
The X-Flare party continues as Active Region 11748 unleashed its 4th X-flare inside of 48 hours. At 01:47 UTC this morning peaking to X1.2 was reported from this active region which continues to grow in size. Associated with this blast was a Type II, Type IV Sweep Frequency Events and a 10cm Radio Burst (Ten Flare) measuring 490 Solar Flux Units. We will now need to wait to see if the resulting Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) has an earth bound component in the coming hours.
