Seen at the 304-Angstrom Wavelength, this magnitude M3 X-ray flare released a huge plasma cloud into space just after 0700 UTC on 24 February 2011. This is from an active region that will be rotating into view by the weekend.
This is the view as seen by SDO AIA... and reveals an energetic solar region where sunspots are likely formed and hopefully growing in size. We'll see, soon.
