DOUBLE X-FLARE: Breaking a weeks-long spell of quiet, the sun erupted on June 10th, producing not one but two X-class solar flares. The source is a new sunspot just emerging over the sun’s southeastern limb. This active region is not squarely facing our planet. However, it will become increasingly geoeffective as it turns toward Earth in the days ahead. Check http://spaceweather.com for details and updates.
