A ‘blended’ sunspot just triggered a massive solar flare

Scientists are keeping an eye on a sunspot that fired an X-class rocket while “having an identity crisis”, according to SpaceWeather.com.

Auroras are possible if a coronal mass ejection of charged particles emerges from the “mixed” sunspot AR3006, which aimed its burst toward Earth on Tuesday (May 10) at 9:55 am EDT (1355 GMT).
