M-class solar flares on northwestern limb of the sun

m-class-solar-flares-on-northwestern-limb-of-the-sun

The northwestern limb of the sun is crackling with M-class solar flares. The source appears to be departing sunspot complex 1280-1286. Coronal mass ejections (CMEs) emerging from the blast site are not Earth-directed. Nevertheless, these flares are having a minor effect on Earth as their radiation ionizes our planet’s upper atmosphere. (SpaceWeather)
