A strong, level X1.7, sunspot x-ray flare

ALERT: A strong, level X1.7, sunspot x-ray flare was produced by active sunspot region, NOAA AR #2192, peaking at 14:28 UTC. This caused an R3-level radio blackout on the sunlit side of the Earth, during the flare event. If a CME was released, it is likely heading toward Earth and will arrive anywhere between two and four days. That, if it occurs, will result in Aurora and degradation of shortwave radio propagation. Stay tuned! Don’t forget to share!
