Region 2205 continues to produce M-class flares (R-1, Minor radio blackouts)

Region 2205 continues to produce M-class flares (R-1, Minor radio blackouts)
published: Friday, November 07, 2014 18:02 UTC

Region 2205 continues to produce M-class flares (R-1, Minor radio blackouts) as it migrates towards the center of the solar disk. It has produced three M2-flares (R1-Minor) recently, (06/1716 EST, 06/2149 EST, 06/2325 EST). Based on its location, Region 2205 still has approximately 10 more days on the visible disk, with chances increasing each day that any coronal mass ejection (CME) produced could connect with the Sun/Earth magnetic field lines. Forecasters are awaiting SOHO LASCO coronagraph imagery to filter in so they can analyse the CMEs associated with these last few flares. Stay tuned here for updates!
