Right After I Posted The July 12/13 Post About Sunspot 1520...

A HUGE X1.4 Solar Flare Erupted.  Aurorae were visible last night and tonight from several northern states...

The X1.4-class solar flare released a Type O Coronal Mass Ejection, traveling at approx. 1,400 km/s.  Earth bound, its impact created some geomagnetic storms between G2 and G4 levels. This produced aurorae as far South as Northern California, as well as most northern and central states and central UK/ Europe.


As seen from Iowa...
