Massive X6.9 Class Solar Flare / Solar Watch Aug 9, 2011

Massive X6.9 Solar Flare:
The largest solar flare of Cycle 24 just took place at 08:05 UTC and it registered X6.9. The source was Sunspot 1263 which is nearing the Western Limb. Because of its location, any large explosions may not be fully earth directed. When watching new video images from the STEREO website, it appears the CME is less intense than the one caused by the M9.3 flare from last week. A minor S1 Radiation Storm is in progress. More information to come.
