Flares and Flowers

Don't be fooled by the image on the left. While it may appear to be one of Alice's pansies from Wonderland, it is actually active region 12033 on the Sun. While it had an interesting shape, this quiet active region never produced a significant flare during its passage across the sun from April 8 - April 21.
