Earth-Directed X-flare

Source - Space Weather News for Sept. 10, 2014:

X-FLARE:  Active sunspot AR2158 erupted on Sept. 10th, producing a strong X1.6-class solar flare.  Because the sunspot is directly facing Earth, this is a geoeffective event.  HF radio blackouts and other communications disturbances have already been observed on the day-lit side of Earth. 

Stay tuned to for more information and updates about the possibility of an Earth-directed CME and geomagnetic storms in the days ahead.
