This is the biggest CME I have seen yet. It very well could be some sort of defect / malfunction, but doesn't look that way. Will try to post updates tomorrow.

Don't forget your sunscreen

Sunscreen is carcinogenic.

But thanks anyway. Criminy! Was that earth facing?

If the sun keeps pushing out coronal mass at this rate, you'd think it'd run out of material.

Huge one this morning but it is not the same one right?

I have no idea if it was earth facing. I was browsing the Stereo latest pic and noticed that unusual pic... I'm really not a specialist.

These are also crazy:

Earth facing Sun is quiet only small sunspots unless it picked up a eruption on the far side of the sun from sunspot AR2192???

It very well could be. I don't think any other sunspot are good candidate for such a huge flare. Not a specialist

It's a CME, not a flare.

The image is from STEREO A which is currently on the far side of the Sun. There was no flare associated with the CME so it seems that it occurred on the far side and thus, is not Earth directed.

Here's the view from our side. Even if it did originate on our side, it is directed well below the ecliptic. My guess is that region 2192 finally let loose with a CME.

BTW, sunscreen is sort of pointless when it comes to CMEs.

I found this on YouTube skip at 2:11 it's really huge but not earth facing it seems.

Thanks for clarification Phage, that was quick! Like I said, I'm not a specialist, just a scaremonger.

sunspot AR2192 is the largest in 25 years and if its still growing larger things could get sporty when it comes to face us again in 8 or 9 days.

The way I read it, was that is was a Hyder Flare.
It's a solar flare that's not associated with a sunspot.
It did also form a CME according to Spaceweather.com

The C3-category flare was caused by a filament of magnetism, which rose up and erupted between 0400 and 0600 UT. Some of the material in the filament fell back to the sun, causing a flash of X-rays where it hit the stellar surface. That was the flare. The rest of the filament flew out into space, forming the core of a massive CME. A movie from the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory shows the CME billowing away from the sun. NOAA analysts say it will not hit Earth. Flares like this, which happen without sunspots, are called Hyder Flares. They help keep solar activity high even when sunspot counts are low

A Hyder flare (not related to a sunspot) and should not hit us (according to NOAA).

What was the point of mentioning the two rocket explosions? Don't see how they're related but I am keeping my eye on the Major Ed Dames prediction.

Guess you would have to ask S.O. that not me, but I like watching his sun activity updates every morning.

Yea i found that funny as well. Phage I messaged you a while back about how with all your knowledge about the Sun you have. Why don't you make a post all about the Sun and explain the different classes of flares, cme's and everything. maybe clear up some myths about the sun and maybe some secrets about the sun some don't know about? I think it would be a great thread.

Ok back on topic, yes that is a huge CME. Don't believe I seen one that big before either.

I'll second that suggestion, or if Phage doesn't feel like it, another member.

It would be a good resource thread to have on here.

Looks Huge to me too, I think Phage was able to locate it.
I'll check my browser history list for clues.
