http://spaceweather.com/ALMOST-X FLARE AND CME (UPDATED): This morning, Jan. 23rd around 0359 UT, big sunspot 1402 erupted, producing a long-duration M9-class solar flare. The explosion's M9-ranking puts it on the threshold of being an X-flare, the most powerful kind.

I was kind of shocked to not see anything on Elli about this when I logged in, as I was sure this would have caught the attention of at least a few Elliquiyans.
Aside being nerded out (excited, in a scientific kind of manner), I'm also wondering how this will effect Earth. Especially our more sensitive technology.
I did read around, yes, but mostly on non-English sites and, I admit, I am too lazy to translate all I have found.
I thought I'd point to this bit of information for those who are into this type of thing and hadn't seen it as of yet.
