It looks very strong and fast, very spectacular eruption ..

Is from back side of Sun not Earth direction ..

CME is from this big sunspot, you can see how It quickly grew in 12 hours ..





Movie here ..

It seems to be a very active region. It produced large CMEs on the 29th and 30th. The one on the 2nd. And again today. It will be getting to our side of the sun in 10 or 12 days.

WOW!!!!!
Very impressive. Maybe the comet has affected it to a point of another explosion. Did I read correctly Phage is saying this sunspot will be facing Earth in 10-12 days??

Oh Man Phage, I was hoping you would debunk this...

So should we worry?

Yup.
Two weeks maybe.
Things could get interesting if it keeps up.

When you say very large CME's, about what size? I really only understand X and M flares and their numbers...could you please enlighten me??

Also, in 10 to 12 days would this really be of any consequence to us regarding said flares/CME's?

We have about 10 days that sunspot come in our direction ..

She can be very peaceful when come, we see then ..

You cant do anything or be concerned for now, no need for it ..

We have time for prepare if be some monstrous eruption two days earlier in future, time when solar wind come to Earth ..
So no need for any-kind of worry ..

Enjoy in life and pictures man ..

The thread title had me questioning my dates. Saying "eruption on Sun, Oct 04" looks like you are saying Sunday, Oct. 4th.

Was expecting to see a report on a volcanic eruption on a date that couldn't be right...

WOW... That looks like it would be downright painful to be on the receiving end of.

Open question for anyone who would know. (Phage?) I know we have limited records and information to go by for understanding the Sun, but active regions like this one......do they run down and calm over time or can they actually maintain this level of strength and activity for the length of time it takes to fully turn in our direction?

10+ days seems like a long time. On the other hand, it's a really short time if a monster CME like that is what may get thrown our direction.

Wow, that is one huge eruption.
I hope the activity comes to
a slow down before it is earth
directed, as Phage said in 10-
12 days.

Wonder what kind of storm this
would have produced if it was
earth directed. Any one have an
idea as to how large the flares
seem to be?

I wait pictures from STEREO A, we see better ..

Is most important thing for me what is the direction and speed of CME, what form and concentration of solar wind in Earth direction ..

So when you know that you know how strong hit us ..

X class solar flare can be very high but don't effect us very mach ..

Is not big percentage that full concentration of wind hit us, in the case sunspot facing Earth ..

You must think 3D to understood that % ..

Is very strong eruption I 'm positive is X class solar flare but what class of X class we can only speculate ..

Guess some medium-lower level of X class ..

For you and Dalke both to say the same thing is something to take note of.

There is no classification system for CMEs, just "Yep, that's a bigun!"

The EUVI image from STEREO B does show a bright area appearing in the region which may be associated with the CME but with no means of measuring the x-ray flux there is no way of knowing the intensity of the flare. At the 9:30/10:00 position.


It would be a bit unusual for activity to persist for a long period of time but it does happen. We won't know for a while what the region has in store.

Holy crap that sucker was a powerful one !

Nice catch Dalke


From what I understand, the lifespan of a sunspot averages a couple of weeks, but they've also been known to last as short as "hours" and as long as "months". So they can be very unpredictable.

Let's hope that sunspot isn't still in its growing/active stage when it comes around this direction. No doubt heliophysicists will be keeping their eye on this one after that display of activity today.

I wait all time for pictures from STEREO A and no upload last 7 hours, 11:50 - 19:24 ..

First picture is from 19:24 so nothing from this eruption from STEREO A, lo0l ..

That black stream right up is position of today eruption ..


Most interesting in this picture is we have creating CME Earth direction but no any-kind of solar flare

No upload from STEREO B so I can say how close is directed to Earth ..

stereo.gsfc.nasa.gov... STEREO Ahead, 512, COR2, 20111004 to 20111004












This is position of STEREO A and STEREO B, forget Elenin on pic ..
