Strong M6.5 Solar Flare & Earth Directed CME - June 22, 2015
Active Region 12371 unleashed a strong M6.5 Solar Flare at 17:40 UTC. A full Halo Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) has followed this eruption and based on latest imagery another significant impact on Earth's magnetic field is expected sometime on June 26 where auroras should be visible mid-to high latitudes. Earlier today a powerful direct hit and a G4-Class Geomagnetic storm resulted from a flurry of low end M-Class solar flares two days ago. High solar activity is expected to continue until AR 12371 rotates off the solar disk July 2nd.
