Moderate M1.1 solar flare erupted from Region 2157

Active Region 2157 unleashed M1.1 solar flare on September 6, 2014. The event started at 16:50, peaked at 17:09 and ended at 17:22 UTC.This region is located in the southeast quadrant and has ‘beta-gamma-delta’ magnetic configuration (capable of producing strong to major eruptions on the Sun). Although its location is still not favorable for Earth directed Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) this will change in the coming days as the region rotates into more geoeffective position.NOAA SWPC forecasters estimate 55% chance for M-class and 15% chance for X-class solar flares in the next two days. The most likely sources for significant flare production are Regions 2157 and 2158.Incoming CMECME unleashed by plasma filament eruption on September 2 reached our planet around… »
