STRONG M6.7 Solar Flare - April 18, 2016
Active Region 12529 just unleashed an impulsive M6.7 Solar Flare at 00:29 UTC this morning. Associated with this blast was a Type II radio emission with a velocity of 1869 km/s. A large Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) is now visible on the STEREO Ahead Satellite and does look to have an earth-directed component which should provide geomagnetic storming sometime April 21st where Aurora should be visible at mid to high latitudes.
