FILAMENT ERUPTION, POSSIBLE EARTH-DIRECTED CME: A magnetic filament snaking across the sun's southern hemisphere erupted during the late hours of Sept. 4th, and it may have hurled a CME toward Earth. Note a clump of dark plasma moving away from the blast site (circled) in this movie recorded by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO):
The plasma in the SDO movie formed the core of a CME, which SOHO saw racing away from the sun on Sept. 5th. The CME is not heading directly for Earth, but it could deliver a glancing blow to our planet's magnetosphere on Sept. ~7th. NOAA forecasters are still modeling the event to refine their forecast. Stay tuned for updates.
