More Flares Incoming! Aurora Possibilities Ahead.

Image Credit NASA/SOHO  Sunspot region 1467 near the centre of this field, is firing off powerful  M class flares and should be easily observable with safe solar projection.

In addition to the flares I reported earlier, there was a M5.8 event around 2:30 pm. Looks like we could be in for some aurora one way of the other. Spaceweather gives a 50% chance of geomagnetic storms in high latitudes  in the next 24-48 hours.

In regard to the May 7 flares, solar storm watch says the May 7 CME's will miss us http://www.solarstormwatch.com/storms/287 this is borne out by there not being even a flicker of a storm being reported by the IPS.
