On Nov. 22nd, a dark filament of magnetism erupted away from the sun's southeastern quadrant. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the blast:
SOHO has observed a faint coronal mass ejection (CME) emerging from the blast site: movie. NOAA forecasters are still computing a storm track for the CME. At first glance, however, it appears to be moving well off of the sun-Earth line. This eruption will probably miss our planet.
