Analysis of the Solar Activity March 17th, 2013


Yesterday, there was a filament eruption near a new area that has yet to recieve a numer (see magnetogram). It was a weak B8 eruption that blasted an Earth directed CME into space. LASCO images show a beautiful halo CME.


The speed of the CME was around 300km/sec which is slow. There will not be any noticeable effects on Earth when the CME arrives.

Here is a movie of the eruption:
