Added 04/18/2014 @ 13:20 UTCM7.3 Solar Flare Observed A moderately strong solar flare measuring M7.3 was observed around region 2036 on Friday morning peaking at 13:03 UTC. A 10cm Radio Burst (TenFlare) measuring 1000 sfu and lasting 24 minutes was associated with the event. The flare itself was long in duration and a halo coronal mass ejection (CME) is now visible in the latest STEREO Ahead COR2 imagery. Additional imagery courtesy of LASCO C2 shows that a majority of the plasma was directed to the south, but a weaker Earth directed component is visible. An impact to our geomagnetic field will be possible within 48-72 hours.
