Solar Flare 13 February 2011


On February 13th at 17:38 UT, an M6.6-category X-ray irradiance magnitude blast was unleashed from our sun. It errupted from sunspot 1158, and produced the largest Solar Flare of cycle 24 with an associated full halo Coronal Mass Ejection (CME). NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded an intense flash of extreme ultraviolet radiation. The solar flux is  at  the highest it has been since September of 2005.
