The solar fireworks resumed this morning, with a near X-class flare! And one of the biggest sunspots in years is emerging over the sun's northeastern limb, with more than a dozen dark cores spread over a large area. Magnetograms of the sunspot group reveal a magnetic field that could produce X-class solar flares. Stay tuned!

The solar flux began the week holding at 135 for four straight days, then rose slightly to end the week at 148. The sunspot count ranged from 56 to 128. Geomagnetic conditions have been up and down all week, with a slightly disturbed K-index reading of 5 on the 27th and ranging from 1 to 4 the rest of the week. Predicted solar flux values are 146 on October 2nd-4th, 140 on October 5th-7th, then 135 on October 8th.
