At 0707 UTC this morning solar cycle 24 sunspot group #11024 released a small C 2.7 class solar flare. This the first C class flare of solar cycle 24 and the first C class solar flare since December 11, 2008.
Sunspot group #11024 is currently located at S26W01, which is geoeffective (Earth facing). If the C2.7 class solar flare released a coronal mass ejection (CME) it could create a minor geomagnetic storm on Earth a few days from now.
Sunspot group #11024 continues to grow in size and complexity and could release more small C class solar flares in future days. There is also a small chance that a medium size M class solar flare could also occur.
