Flares, CME, whether earth directed - How to know?


Recommended Posts

Hello, I have been passively following the forum for almost a year. Want to dirty my hands and learn a few things. The dashboard is fantastic to see the past flares and the latest CMEs (cactus). What I have been trying to figure out is
(a) how to link which flares listed under Solar flares correspond to the CMEs under Latest CMEs. If I would like to see which of the M flares yday produced CMEs, how to do that? 
(b) what should I be looking at/ be looking for to know if the CME is earth directed in the CACTUS images? 

If there are resources that shed details on this, pls do point me in that direction. Thanks for the help!

Welcome. Thanks for your kind words.

A. Correspond the times of the CMEs with the time that a flare occurred: https://www.spaceweatherlive.com/en/solar-activity/solar-flares.html
