M5.6 Solar Flare - August 24, 2015, 2015
Active Region 12403 at 7:33 this morning unleashed the strongest solar flare since June 25 (M7.9). Todays event peaked to M5.6 while this large active region was in a direct earth-facing position, this implies any Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) resulting from this eruption will be sent directly towards the earth. Possible strong impact on Earths magnetic field is possible sometime on August 27 where geomagnetic storms should result. Strong auroras should be seen to mid to high latitudes late August 27th. This event was accurately forecasted in the August Newsletter.
