Major X 3.1 Solar Flare and Strong R3 Radio blackout

There’s not much info about it yet but I think it’s earth facing. Don’t know yet if there was a CME. Also “Giant sunspot AR2192 has a ‘beta-gamma-delta’ magnetic field that harbors energy for strong explosions. NOAA forecasters estimate an 85% chance of M-class flares and a 45% chance of X-flares on Oct. 24th. If an explosion does occur, it will be geoeffective because the sunspot is directly facing Earth.” …. Three links below.

Left of the moon is Saturn, while to its right reside Spica and Mars. Can you see the color differences among the three starlike objects? The entire lineup will be visible most of the night, until they set before 3 a.m., local time.”
