Nasa's Solar Dynamics Observatory captured this fantastic filament eruption today. The blast, which is linked to the active region AR2339, which produced an X2-flare a couple of days ago, was not earth-directed, so there's no danger to our planet. Nasa is currently forecasting the risk of further M-class flares at 55% over the next 24 and 48 hours, and 10% for X-flares over the same periods. The earth is currently being buffeted by a disturbed solar wind stream which has been causing problems for communications around the globe.
