At 1825 UT on August 7th, magnetic fields around sunspot 1093 erupted, producing a strong M1-class solar flare. Several amateur astronomers caught the active region in mid-eruption. The blast hurled a CME into space. The cloud is not heading directly toward Earth, but it might deliver a glancing blow to our planet's magnetic field two or three days hence. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras.

Since there is no information provided about what is seen in the simulation and there is a lot of misunderstanding, I tried to help with these two threads about it.
