    M2.9 flare and another geomagnetic storm.

    Electrons have had a rough time lately.
    We also just got M2.2 flare, I guess I felt it coming.

    Today as sunspot 2403 approaches its curtaincall at the eastern edge of the earth-facing sun, it produced 2 M flares: an M2.2 peaking at 13:16UTC
    and an M2.1 peaking at 19:03 UC.

    Here's spaceweather.com's update explaining what Wind has posted above (kinda):

    Quote PROTON PERIL INCREASES AS SUNSPOT DEPARTS: Behemoth sunspot AR2403 is approaching the sun's western limb where, soon, it will disappear from view. Maximilian Teodorescu sends this parting shot from Magurele, Romania:



    "This photogenic sunspot is rapidly closing on the solar limb," says Teodorescu. "I hope we see another one like it soon."

    As AR2403 turns away from Earth, the odds of a geoeffective explosion ironically increase. Magnetic fields near the sun's western limb sweep back toward Earth, connecting our planet to the star: diagram. As the sunspot passes through this well-connected region, flares become extra-perilous. Protons and other subatomic particles accelerated by flares are guided by these sweeping magnetic fields right back toward Earth. NOAA forecasters estimate the odds of an X-flare to be 10% during the next 24 hours.

    Geomagnetic storm still continues.
