Spectacular Explosion Solar Flare Alerts - Space Weather News for April 16, 2012

Spectacular Explosion: On April 16th around 17:45 UT, magnetic fields curling over the sun's northeastern limb rose up and erupted, producing one of the most visually-spectacular explosions in years. 
The event, which also produced an M1.7-class solar flare and a coronal mass ejection, was not Earth-directed. Nevertheless, it confirms suspicions that a significant active region is rotating onto the  Earth-side of the sun.
