1476 continues to flare

Huge sunspot 1476 continues to release many flares including 2 M class today. Unfortunately they came outside of the window of my solar flare monitor. However it did capture a volley of smaller C class flares during the day.

On the magnetic side there is an event happening as I speak but a north polarity solar wind means little chance of activity. We have been expecting 2 CMEs but as yet there is no confirmed data. Take a look at my magnetogram below, there are 2 small "nicks" in the curve, one after 13:00bst and one just after 20:00bst. These could be CME impact signatures called sudden impacts, but this is not verified.
