Strong M7.9 Solar Flare & G2 Class Geomagnetic Storm - June 25, 2015
Active Region 12371 unleashed another strong solar flare, the latest registering a M7.9 at 08:16 UTC this morning. Associated with this event was a Type II radio emission with an estimated velocity of 2056 km/s. A coronal mass ejection (CME) is now visible in the latest imagery and there maybe an Earth directed component that should deliver a glancing blow on earths magnetic field sometime June 28 and spark geomagnetic storms. So more auroras should be visible at high latitudes late June 28 into June 29.
