Space Weather Update: X1.9 solar flare

A lot of sunspots on our Sun today which is a promising start for what should be an exciting 2023 when it comes to solar activity. Sunspot region 3181 and 3182 both have complex magnetic layouts with magnetic delta sunspots and both regions have the potential to produce M-class events. It is however sunspot region 3184 near the limb that steals the show today with the second strongest solar flare of Solar Cycle 25 thus far.
