A new and active Sunspot is now rotating into view on the northeast limb. It produced a moderate M3.3 solar flare at 17:45 UTC on Friday afternoon. All of the other current regions have been stable since the C3.3 flare around 1423 on Thursday. The new and active Sunspot now rotating into view on the northeast limb, appears to be a very large region. This sunspot group should be numbered 1428 on Saturday.
