M1.7 flare and eruption! The new region starting to rotate into view is at it again! It produced an M1.7 flare that peaked in GOES X-ray at 17:45 UT (1:45 EDT). Here is a glimpse of the associated eruption. The image contains snapshots with 4 SDO/AIA cameras. They show us solar plasma (starting from the image on top) at around 2 million Kelvin (193 Angstrom), 600,000 Kelvin (171 Angstrom), 60,000 Kelvin (304 Angstrom) and 10 million Kelvin (131 Angstrom). It looks like there will be a CME though probably not Earth directed.
