4 M-Class Eruptions on Feb 2, 2014 AR1967 Will Remain a Threat for a Strong X-Class Event Solar activity is once again at moderate levels with M-Class solar flares detected around both sunspots 1967 and 1968. Sunspot 1968 produced an event at 06:34 UTC this morning. This was followed up by an flare around 1967 at 08:20 UTC. The largest event so far this morning was just observed around 1967 and measured at 09:31 UTC. It should be noted that the X-Ray background levels are now holding in the upper C-Class range. Further flaring is likely during the next 24 hour Solar activity is currently moderate with M-Class flares detected around both sunspots 1967 and 1968. The largest event, an impulsive flare, was detected around 1967 at 09:31 UTC. The active region continues to maintain a complex Beta-Gamma-Delta magnetic structure and will remain a threat for a strong X-Class flare event. Elsewhere, new sunspot 1970 located in the southeast quadrant was numbered, but is not considered a threat for strong solar flares. A coronal mass ejection (CME) became visible in the latest LASCO C2 imagery on Sunday morning and was the result of a filament eruption beyond the southwest limb. This will have no impact on our geomagnetic fieldM-CLASS CREDITS: SCOPECE "SPACE DANCE"These pictures are from NASA, and Were taken from the AIA instrument of the satellite SDO (Solar Dynamics Observatory), with a wavelength of 304 Angstroms.
