  1. Just back in after viewing a moderate (somewhat unexpected) auroral display, the missus said it was the best valentines shes ever had!!! Big news folks, around an hour ago we had an X2 flare erupt from earth facing sunspot 1158. It will be a couple more hours before we know if there is a CME associated with this event. This is by far the biggest solar flare of cycle 24 and the biggest recorded solar flare in over 4 years. edit: The X2 flare appears to have ejected a full halo CME. Strong mid-lat auroras are likely from an event of this magnitude.
