X1.2 Solar flare from huge spot 1943/1944: Appears Earth geoeffective via Solarham.net

Note: so many NOAA spaceweather alerts today I can't list them all here. Here's the link: http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/alerts/archive/current_month.html

Major Solar Flare Detected
A major solar flare measuring X1.2 was detected on Tuesday afternoon peaking at 18:30 UTC. The source of the eruption was region 1943, with interaction between sunspot 1944. Because the flare appears to be long in duration, a coronal mass ejection is possible. The blast site is in a great geoeffective position for Earth directed eruptions. Attached image by the Solar Dyanamics Observatory (SDO) below, captures a "wave" of plasma racing away from the blast site. Stay tuned for the latest updates.
