    MOSCOW, July 15 (RIA Novosti) - According to the Heliogeophysical Center of the Applied Geophysics Institute under Rosgidromet (Russia's State Committee for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Control), a powerful solar flare was registered at 5.30 a.m., Moscow time, on Thursday.

    "The flare appeared in a rapidly expanding active solar region. It is expected very soon to become a source of large flares," Rosgidromet said.

    The radiation situation will remain unperturbed.

    The magnetic storm triggered by the solar flare is to be expected on July 18, scientists forecast.
