Sunspot 1515 is now partially rotated onto the western limb. Sunspot 1520 in the southeast quadrant remains a large sunspot cluster, but is currently only producing C-Class flares. Another sunspot forming just to the southwest of 1520 appears to be magnetically independent and may be assigned its own sunspot number later today. There will remain the chance for M-Class solar flares. NOAA estimates 80% chances for M-class flares and 25% for X-class flares.
