After some quiet time Region 1618 erupted with another M-class solar flare. This latest event started at 15:52, peaked at 15:57 UTC at M1.6 and ended at 16:03 UTC on November 27, 2012. Region 1618 still has Beta-Gamma-Delta magnetic configuration capable of producing strong solar flares but it is not in Earth view so even if CME was produced it would not be Earth directed.
