Sunspot region 2205, active aurora

Solar activity during the past 24 hours was high. Newly numbered sunspot region 2205 is now rotating into view and it already produced four M-class solar flares during the past 48 hours. Two M-class solar flares yesterday (M2.2, M6.5) and two M-class solar flares (M2.6 and M2.3) today. A majority of these solar flares were eruptive and launched coronal mass ejections. They were however directed away from Earth as sunspot region 2205 is still close to the east limb. Aurora conditions are also elevated right now possibly due to glancing blow effects of the 1 November filament coronal mass ejection. In this article we will take a closer look at these events.
