http://www.thesuntoday.org - November 9th's M1 flare (~13:30UT) was associated with a filament eruption on the Northeast (upper left) solar disk. This is not the big filament making its way onto the disk. This eruption sent the filament flying away from the Sun, at least 750 km/s (~2 million mph). This created a CME (coronal mass ejection) that appears to be somewhat Earth directed and it is possible that it will cause a geomagnetic storm (if it does we call the CME a geoeffective event). Impact with the magnetosphere is expected on Nov. 12. Here is the CME as observed by the SOHO LASCO coronagraphs.

details: LASCO C2/C3 (2011-11-09 13:25:32 - 2011-11-10 00:48:05 UTC)
