Solar activity is at high levels. We already saw an X2 solar flare today from sunspot region 2192 but this sunspot region continues to be active and is now firing M-class solar flares on a regular basis. The X2 solar flare from today unfortunately did not release a coronal mass ejection. In this article we take a look how sunspot region 2192 is developing. Our header image was taken by Sajad Sayadi on October 23, 2014 at Fasa/Fars/Iran. He captured this picture of our nearest star at sunset with a great view of sunspot region 2192. He captured this shot from the Observatory & Scietific Center of Fasa (OSCF) in south Iran with a 14 inch telescope. Stunning work!
...and that is number five! Sunspot region 2192 again produced a major solar flare: X2.01 (R3-strong radio blackout) at 10:56 UTC. This was already it's fifth X-class solar flare and the 13th strongest solar flare of this solar cycle... however... just like all the other X-class solar flares that we have previously seen from this sunspot region... it again looks like it did not launch a coronal mass ejection.
