AR11532 - C8 Flare Animation 30th July

I was really pleased to see a small near M class flare erupt in now decaying AR11532. This took place over a time frame of about 20 minutes. Seeing conditions weren't great but it's always good to catch a flare happening in real time. This was easily the largest explosion to be happening in over a 4 light year radius, this active region has been putting out these flares on a near daily basis since last friday. Taken with the 127mm @ 1900mm fl DMK31.
