Double Solar Flare of June 10, 2014 as Seen by SDO

Multiple flares erupted from the same active region just a few hours apart on June 10, 2014. The first flare, an M-class, erupted near the limb of the sun. Within a couple of hours, two more X-class flares erupted (see Classifying Solar Eruptions) peaked at 12:52UT. A number of smaller flares erupted from the same region before and after the largest events.
