Space Weather Update: Two strong M-class solar flares

We are not seeing much yet of the anticipated geomagnetic storming conditions but our Sun is really doing its best to distract us from that fact. Solar activity is elevated with two sunspot regions stepping into the spotlight. Sunspot region 3110 and 3112 are producing multiple M-class solar flares every day. Two of these solar flares which took place during the past 24 hours peaked above the M5 (R2-moderate) threshold.
