Second X-class flare erupts from turbulent sunspot 1302

September 24, 2011CHANCE OF FLARES: New sunspot 1302 has already produced one X-flare (X1.4 on Sept. 22nd), now it has produced another. NOAA forecasters had put the 24-hour probability at 20%. The sheer size of the active region suggests the odds might be even higher than that. Each of the dark cores in this snapshot from the Solar Dynamics Observatory is larger than Earth, and the entire active region stretches more than 100,000 km from end to end. The sunspot’s magnetic field is crackling with sub-X-class flares that could grow into a larger eruption as the sunspot continues to turn toward Earth. Space Weather
     
Sunspot 1302 is back at it again, this time producing an X1.9 Solar Flare at 09:40 UTC. This major event resulted in an R3 level radio blackout as well as producing a 10.7cm Radio Burst (TenFlare). A fast moving type II sweep frequency event is reported also. As this massive Sunspot continues to rotate into better position, the chances for an earth directed Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) will improve. This explosion did produce a CME; however it does not look to be very significant at this time.Solar Ham

    Does anyone know what was the last time when when had 21 M or X flares over a period of 5 days?
