Sun busts out trio of moderate solar flares that might herald more activity

A trio of moderate flares blasted off from the sun on Thursday (May 19), and there might be more in store.

The solar flares come amid a noticeable uptick in solar activity in recent months. SpaceWeather.com says a storm is swirling around sunspot AR3014, to the extent that the region is “literally seeingthing.” As the magnetic lines twist and tangle, they may snap and send a coronal mass ejection towards our planet.
