SOLAR FLARE RISK: 75% M class 30% X class

Sunspot 1944 Watch
Below is an updated image of massive sunspot 1944 on Friday. The active region continues to rotate into a more geoeffective position, has a complex Beta-Gamma magnetic configuration, and spans the size of over 1000 millionths. A number of low to mid level C-Class flares are being observed around the cluster on Friday morning. There will remain a chance for stronger M-Class solar flares during the next 24 hours, along with a lower threat for a major X-Class event.
