Major X4.9 Solar Flare

A major solar flare measuring X4.9 was just observed around returning sunspot 1967 (newly numbered 1990) at 00:49 UTC. Despite appearing to be in an advanced state of decay, the active region remains magnetically potent. This just proves that you cannot judge a book by its cover. A 10cm radio bust measuring 3700 sfu and lasting 85 minutes was associated with the event. The sunspot is not yet in a good geoeffective position for Earth directed eruptions. The flare is the 3rd largest X-Ray event of the current solar cycle. More updates to follow regarding a possible CME...

...the CME is directed far away from Earth on the eastern limb. This is the 3rd revolution we've seen from 1967, and it will be Earth facing again in a week if it doesn't decay first. If you'll recall, I posted about AR 1967 last time it was Earth facing in a thread called "Solar Flare Doom!"

I doubt an X4.9 would do any damage, even if it was Earth facing.

Maybe we'll get a chance to find out this week if this region keeps poppin'!
