Sources on Solar Storms and Space Weather

"Solar Flare directed at Earth: On February 13, 2011, at 1738UT, sunspot 1158 unleashed the strongest solar flare of the year so far, an M6.6 category blast. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded an intense flash of extreme ultraviolet radiation, circled in the picture above. The eruption produced a load blast of radio waves heard in shortwave receivers around the dayside of our planet."
