New active region 2778 formed rapidly on Sunday and continued to evolve into Monday. The region is currently a threat for minor B-Flares or perhaps an isolated C-Flare. Some separation between the cluster of spots was observed, but will continue to be watched closely during the next day or so.

Elsewhere, a few other magnetic regions are trying to form sunspots as well and will also be monitored.

Stay tuned to for the most up to date information.

UPDATE: Below is an updated look at AR 2778 on Tuesday. The region continues to evolve and produced a minor C4.3 flare at 06:16 UTC (Oct 27). Additional C-Flares appear to be possible. Now a chance for an isolated moderate M-Class flare.
