Big Sunspot Produces X-Flare

Space Weather News for Oct. 19, 2014

X-FLARE: Solar activity increased sharply on Oct. 19th when huge
sunspot AR2192 unleashed an X1-class solar flare. The blast produced
an HF radio blackout on the dayside of Earth and it likely hurled a
CME into space. Check for pictures of the
flare and more information about possible Earth-effects.

DID YOU MISS THE FLARE? Next time get a phone call. Realtime solar
activity alerts are available from (text)
