Impulsive M1.4 solar flare erupted from Region 2080

Impulsive solar flare measuring M1.4 at its peak time erupted on June 6, 2014 from Active Region 2080. The event started at 19:26, peaked at 19:31 and ended at 19:33 UTC.Active regions 2080 and 2082 both exhibited rapid growth in last 36 hours and are now rotating into the geoeffective position.NOAA SWPC forecasters estimate 25% chance of M-class, and 5% chance of X-class solar flare in next two days. This will probably increase in the coming days. There are currently 7 numbered sunspot regions on the Earth side of the Sun.All regions except 2082 and 2080 are either stable or decaying.Sunspots on June 6, 2014.
