Sunspots AR1817 and AR1818 are continuing to grow rapidly. AR1817 is now directly facing the Earth and would score a direct hit should it throw off a flare. AR1818 is the larger of the two and has at least another 24 hours growing time left before it has rotated far enough across the Sun to be fully geo-effective here on Earth.
NOAA estimates the chances of an M-Class flare at 30% over the next 24 hours and says there’s a 5% chance of an X class during the same period.
Todays sunspot number is 98.
