NASA-SDO Detects another X6.9 Class Flare

Another solar flare with an intensity of X6.9 in a scale of 1to 9 was detected by SOHO last August 9, 2011. Although the Flare is Earth directed, the Corona Mass Ejection  (CME) was not, thus there is no expected earth bound effect.  However the X6.9 Flare still has the possibility to affect satellite communications and humans in outer space.
