Possible white light flare?

Posted by Andrea Tasselli at 21:59 on 2011 Apr 25

Hi,Wondering whether what I imaged friday morning is a white light flare, see the bright spot at the bottom of the sunspot group (it is ~ 30% brighter than the average surface of the sun in the pic). Any insight would be appreciated.Reg'sAndrea T.
