Huge Sunspot Cometh, M-Class Flares - May 6, 2012

A New active Active Region (11476) has rotated the north-eastern limb of the solar corona and is crackling with C-Class and M-Class flares. So far three M-Class flares have been recorded in the last 12 hours. M1.4 at 13:29, M1.3 at 24:04 and an M1.2 at 01:30 this morning.

Three Coronal Mass Ejections (CME's) have been observed May 5th heading towards the earth from the southwest limb, the first CME has a slight Earth-directed component, and is expected to brush the earths magnetic field late May 7th,
