At 1324 UTC an M2.3 solar flare was detected. The source region is unknown 
at this time but it is likely that it was released by a sunspot group around 
the east limb of the Sun. This is the first M class solar flare for solar 
cycle 24.

The solar flux index values are 82.2 81.5 81.3 and the sunspot number 14.

On January 12th thanks to recurrent sunspot group #11040, the solar flux 
index (SFI) peaked at 95.4 and the sunspot number (SSN) 41, both record 
highs for solar cycle 24.
