Active sunspot releases biggest flare in July

A multitude of C-class and M-class flares erupted from Active Region 1515 on the Sun from July 5th to July 6th, 2012.
So far unleashing the largest solar flares for the month of July.  The monster sunspot AR1515 is crackling with M-class solar flares (mid range flare) and appears to be on the verge of producing an X-class explosion (these are considered the most powerful). On July 4th the active region hurled at least four minor CMEs into space, including one toward Earth.

Buckle up
