SWAP & LYRA observe an M6.5 flare

On Thursday 11th of April, an energetic M6.5 flare erupted from the Sun.

It occurred slightly north east of the center of the solar disk, and therefore a strong candidate for being directed to Earth.

Below are provided a SWAP difference image and video, as well as the LYRA curves, for this occurrence.
