Filament Eruption Near 1608
A filament eruption was just observed over the last several hours around sunspot 1608. This region is in a good Earth facing position and a Coronal
Mass Ejection (CME) is now visible. A portion of the cloud looks to be Earth directed. More updates to follow.
E UPDATE: The brand new CME Prediction Model released by the Goddard Space Flight Center shows a potential for an Earth impact by late on November 12.
A majority of the slow moving plasma cloud appears to be headed south, however a glancing blow impact will be possible. This could lead to an increase
in geomagnetic activity and aurora at high latitudes. Click on the image below to watch the latest animation. www.solarham.net...
