Sunspot AR2740
« on: May 06, 2019, 0939 UTC »
Sunspot AR2740 has produced three flares so far today (6 May 2019), including two C class and one M1 flare. Might give us a little bump in propagation the next week or two.

Some more flares this morning, including a C7 which produced a radio burst I heard on 43m as well as around 20 MHz. And now another sunspot on the way: With one big sunspot (AR2740) already turning toward Earth, another big sunspot (AR2741) is now emerging over the sun's eastern limb.
