Space Weather News for July 2, 2012
STRONG SOLAR FLARE: A big, active sunspot (AR1515) is growing on the
Earthside of the sun. This morning it erupted, producing an M5.6-class solar
flare that ionized Earth's upper atmosphere with a brief but intense pulse
of X-rays and extreme ultraviolet radiation. More eruptions are in the
offing as the sunspot turns to face Earth. Check http://spaceweather.com
