Very large sunspot group #11476 located near N10E33 now has a 
beta-gamma-delta twisted magnetic signature capable of producing extremely 
large and powerful X class solar flares. So far it's responsible for six M 
class solar flares, two of which sent partially geo-effective (earth facing) 
coronal mass ejections towards earth. Between the two incoming CME's and 
coronal hole #515, minor Kp-5  geomagnetic storming is possible, with 
isolated moderate Kp-6 geomagnetic storming periods, during the next two
