Sunspot region 2665 erupted this night with an M2.4 (R1-Minor) solar flare that peaked at 02:09 UTC. It was a long duration and highly eruptive event. More information about the solar flare can be found in the article that we wrote this morning.
Decaying sunspot region 2665 (Beta, S07W31) produced a very long duration M2.44 solar flare that is still in progress at the time of writing. Indeed a big surprise as its magnetic layout remains rather simple and that means such a solar flare was very unlikely to happen.
