A long duration C1 solar flare erupted on October 6, 2013 at 14:24 UTC. Coronal Mass Ejection associated with this event is Earth directed. Plasma cloud is forecast to sweep past our planet sometime on October 9 resulting in minor increase in geomagnetic activity.

There are currently 5 numbered sunspot regions on the disk. All of them have Alpha or Beta magnetic configuration.

Beta classified AR 1856 is crackling with C-class solar flares for a second day in a row. It is located at the center of the disk today. If any CME erupts from that region today, or in the coming days, it will most likely have an Earth directed component. 

NOAA SWPC forecasters estimated 10% chance for an M-class solar flare, and 1% chance for an X-class solar flare today.
