Sunspot 1166 Launches a Massive Flare
We will have to wait a little while to see if this flare will have the potential for aurora.
UPDATE via Spaceweather:
Newly-arriving coronagraph data from the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory show no bright CME emerging from this eruption. Some material was surely hurled in our direction, but probably not enough for significant Earth-effects.
