A new sunspot region that received sunspot number 2736 earlier today erupted with a long duration C-class solar flare. The solar flare peaked at 11:18 UTC and reached a maximum X-ray flux of C4.8. The eruption was associated with a Type II radio sweep which indicated straight away that this event was likely to be eruptive and thus launched a coronal mass ejection into space.
