At 18:10 UTC Monday, a short duration M3.5 Solar Flare took place around Sunspot 1263. Because of its location, any explosions at this point may not be earth directed.

Just when solar activity was slowing down, an M3.5 Solar Flare took place around Sunspot 1263 Monday afternoon. It was short in duration and should have little impact on earth. Sunspot 1266 which is also located in the norhtern hemisphere, is beginning to expand somewhat. There will continue to be a chance for C-Class flares and perhaps another M-Class event.

Sunspot 1261 which was the cause of atleast 6 M-Class flares and multiple incoming CME shocks, has rotated onto the western limb and is now out of direct earth view. (SolarHam)
