X FLARE UNLEASHED; EARTH DIRECTED

FROM SPACE WEATHER:

Earth-orbiting satellites have just detected a powerful X1.6-class solar flare (Sept. 10 @ 17:46 UT). The source was active sunspot AR2158, which is directly facing Earth. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the extreme ultraviolet flash



From SOLAR HAM:
Geoeffective Sunspot 2158 produced a strong solar flare this afternoon measuring X1.6 at 17:45 UTC. The event event was associated with a Type II Radio emission with an estimated velocity of 3750 km/s. This is indicative of a strong coronal mass ejection. Updated imagery by SDO shows plasma racing away from the blast site and possibly towards Earth

This is earth facing.. and it’s a powerful X flare..
