Major fareside flare
We’ve been watching for flares lately, cheers to Neo for catching this one! (Click images to animate)
Also big ups to Mountain man for running the numbers on this:
We have had 6 earthquakes 7.0 or higher in the past 30 days. The past 12 years we have averaged 15 per year.
That’s around %40 of the annual average of magnitude 7+ quakes in a single month.
