X3.3 Solar Flare

A very radid solar flare measuring X3.3 was detected around sunspot 1890 at 22:12 UTC. Because the event was very impulsive, a large scale CME is sometimes not likely, however I will provide updates should any such plasma cloud be associated. The event was accompanied by a 10cm Radio Burst (TenFlare) measuring 400 sfu and a Type II Sweep Frequncy Event with a velocity of 1380 km/s
