M-Class Solar Flare and S1-Class Radiation Storm

An amazing M2 class solar flare and a massive coronal mass mass ejection fired off from the Sun at about 1641 UT along with a S1-class radiation storm. Even though it is not predicted to directly hit Earth, it should brush the Earth's magnetic shield around the 8th or 9th of June. Watch this beautiful video of the cloud expanding.
