A low-level M-Class flare reaching M1.4 just took place around Sunspot 1476 at 13:23 UTC. Solar winds flowing from coronal holes should reach Earth on May 9-10.
A new and fairly large Sunspot continues to rotate into view off the northeast limb. This region has produced numerous C-Class flares thus far, the largest of which being a C6.8 flare at 09:34 UTC Saturday morning. The emergence of this apparently significant active region could herald an increase in solar activity.
