SolarHam is routinely updated with breaking news, sometimes hours before other Space News websites.
At 0805 UTC, on 9 August 2011, a strong magnitude X6.9 X-ray flare -- the strongest yet in this current solar cycle (Cycle 24) -- erupted on the northwestern solar limb. Overall, the monthly average background 'hard' X-ray level is rising (as seen by the following plot), showing a change from deep solar cycle minimum. Solar activity is expected to be low with a chance for M-class flares on days one, two, and three (08 Dec, 09 Dec, 10 Dec).

Solar activity is expected to be low with a chance for M-class (R1-R2, Minor-Moderate) flares from 23-25 November due to flare potential from Region 2454. The purpose of the website is to provide real time solar news, as well as data from various sources, all located in one spot for easy navigation. Regions 2454 and 2457 gradually decayed during the past day and are now both a much smaller threat for moderate solar flares. Cugnon) combining a regression technique applied to the sunspot number series with the aa geomagnetic index used as a precursor (improved predictions during the minimum phase between solar cycles).

Attached video below by the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) using the 304 angstroms channel captures the eruption on Sunday morning. Region 2458 did expand somewhat, but is not yet considered a major threat for noteworthy solar flares.
