Earth-Facing M8.7 Solar Flare - December 17, 2014

Active Region 12242 unleashed a strong M8.7 solar flare at 04:50 UTC this morong while in an Earth-Facing position. Associated with this blast was a TenFlare/Radio Burst measuring 320 solar flux units (SFU) and a Type II radio emission. A Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) is expected to be earth directed and should become geoeffective sometime on December 20 where geomagnetic storming will be possible at high latitudes.
