STEREO (Behind) spacecraft observed a substantial coronal mass ejection (CME) that was ejected into space (May 5, 2009). The force of the CME also generated a large Type II radio burst, the first one observed in over a year. The COR-2 coronagraph video clip captured the action in frames taken about every 30 minutes over about one day. The source of the CME is an active region (seen as a bright area in the green EUV 195 still) just rotating into view from STEREO Behind, and it is being followed by another.
