Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) On The Way
Looks to be a CME on its way. I don't know enough about its class system (M Class) as I should. Does this warrant special precautions for commercial/civilians?

C stands for common M stands for moderate and X stands for extreme, why not E? Got me. The flash of X ray wasn't big, but it was a long lived event with a pretty good mass ejection, like sun spew that will most likely hit us and cause some nice auroras in a few days depending on how fast it was.

This is nothing. It needs to be up in the high X ranges...like a X-9 or more.

I read somewhere that "The Carrington Event" of the middle 1800's (1859 I think) was estimated to be something like an X-45 and caused the telegraph wires to catch on fire...now if that happened today....say bye-bye to the power grid and all communications...

BUT!....I don't think we will be seeing one of those again anytime soon.

From spaceweather.com

As predicted, the sunspot has flared. Magnetic fields above AR1504 erupted on June 13th at 1319 UT, producing a long-duration M1-class solar flare. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the extreme UV glow of the blast:

The ongoing explosion is taking hours to unfold, which means it is very powerful despite its middling M1-peak. Long duration flares often hurl coronal mass ejections (CMEs) into space, and this one is probably no exception. Stay tuned for updates about a possible Earth-directed CME.
