There looks to have been a pretty impressive CME very recently which has thrown lots of stuff outwards (or someone has used a bit of glasspaper to clean the lenses
).

This should been a pretty good aurora too...

The Lasco images are here - the CME is about halfway down the page, the pictures at the top of the page are the subsequent results.

It looks like a sunspot known as 720 is responsible, an bit more info on this is here:

www.sec.noaa.gov...



Edit: Argh - this should have been in space exploration of course (which is where I thought I had posted it, strange, but obviously not - grr).
Note to self - must pay attention to things / get more sleep) - can it be moved ?
