Sunspot 1476

Imaged this afternoon, sunspot 1476 has a 'beta-gamma' magnetic field, giving it a high potential for flares.  It has already produced M-Class flares and is one of the largest groups seen in years.  The forecast is 75% for M-Class flares in the next 24 hours, and 10% for powerful X-Class flares.  The sport is not pointing directly at earth currently, but it could get very interesting when it does!
