На Солнце 13 января 2015 произошло две последовательные вспышки класса М5.6 и М4.9.
Region 2257, now about to turn onto the west limb, produced a moderately strong M5.6 solar flare peaking at 04:24 UTC. Because the active region is no longer directly facing Earth, any associated coronal mass ejection (CME) would likely be directed mostly away from our planet. More details to follow once additional imagery becomes available.
UPDATE: A secondary solar flare peaking at M4.9 was also observed around region 2257 at 04:58 UTC (Jan 13).
UPDATE # 2: Updated coronagraph imagery shows that a noteworthy coronal mass ejection is not associated with the events listed above.
