A moderate solar flare reaching M6.0 took place around Sunspot 1261

A Moderate Solar Flare reaching M6.0 took place around Sunspot 1261 at 13:47 UTC Wednesday and appears to be long in duration. A brief R2 Radio Blackout resulted. A bright Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) is associated and can be seen in the image below. It is most likely earth directed. Increased energetic proton fluxes are possible in the vicinity of Earth.
