Sun flares again

The Sun just blasted out a M1.1 and C9.8 flare today. It's probably not from Sunspot group 958, the prominent group on the left hand side, but something sneaking up over the horizon (image courtesy of Space Weather).

If the spot keeps up its activity, we might get some geomagnetic action, perhaps even an aurora.

UPDATE: The Sun just let off two more M-class flares. Last time this happend though, the spot went quite soon as it moved into a position where it could produce aurora.
