SnF for OP- really cool stuff.Been reading this of and on all day andI'm really impressed with a lot of the information you folks put out. Being a reasonably intelligent, sci-fi loving and always willing to learn I really love this stuff along with te other forums that I read into. My thanks to all of you ATSers who have provided intelligent and informative information- kudos on your excellent work!!
If I"m reading and analyzing the megaload of info correct I believe a CME would be a three dimensional flowering-type bloom from the sun. If that's true and it is expanding in all directions of the cartesian coordinates system (XYZ) then my impression is that any CME originating from ± 45° from straght line to the sun would affect earth: ist that correct?
On other question: can anyone tell what protion of the earth will be facing the sun at the time of the CME arrival?
Thanks again to all for your input!!

How do the astronauts on the ISS handle such things? They have protection but only so much.
I did feel a disturbance in the Force today, I guess it was about this.
The blast peaked on March 7th at 00:28 UT. Radiation storms and radio blackouts are possible.
It's not a "kill shot" that so many apparently are hoping for in here.

If a bigger one came by, X6.9 on August 9, 2011, and nothing happened, why so much hype about this one?
and a X6.5 on December 6, 2006 and an X9.0 on December 5, 2006, and were still here.edit on 7-3-2012 by PageAlaCearl because: (no reason given)
