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.

X1.6 Solar Flare

Excerpt from the article. ……..Earth-effects could increase in the days ahead. AR2192 has an unstable ‘beta-gamma-delta’ magnetic field that harbors energy for powerful explosions, and the active region is turning toward Earth. NOAA forecasters estimate at 65% chance of M-class flares and a 20% chance of X-flares during the next 24 hours.……..  To read the full article go to
