Sun Blasts Out a Solar Flare & Coronal Mass Ejection - A New Active Region is Turning Into View

An active region approaching the northeast limb just produced a solar flare that may be associated with a coronal mass ejection (CME). The event registered as a long duration B-Flare, but may have been somewhat stronger due to the fact it is not yet in direct satellite view.

Images from SOHO/LASCO C2 reveal a wave spreading across the farside of the sun, which is sometimes indicative of a CME. Because the region is on the farside of the sun, it should be directed completely away from our planet. The sunspot belonging to Cycle 25 will begin to turn into view this weekend.

Stay Tuned!
