Major X1.1 solar flare erupts from Active Region 2994

Major X1.1 solar flare erupts from Active Region 2994

A major solar flare measuring X1.1 at its peak erupted from newly numbered Active Region 2994 at 03:34 UTC on April 17, 2022. The event started at 03:17 UTC and ended at 03:51. A coronal mass ejection (CME) was produced during the event but the location of the source region does not favor Earth-directed CMEs. This will change in the days ahead as the region turns into geoeffective position.
