A ‘mixed up’ sunspot just fired off a huge solar flare

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

Amplified aurora displays are possible if a coronal mass ejection of charged particles emerges from the “mixed-up” sunspot AR3006, which pointed its flaring blast toward Earth Tuesday (May 10) at 9:55 a.m. EDT (1355 GMT).
