The Sun produces yet another Earth-directed event

The Sun produces yet another Earth-directed event
published: Monday, June 29, 2015 14:01 UTC

Yet another Earth directed coronal mass ejection erupted from the Sun this morning.  Modeling of the event predicts arrival June 27 at 1700 UT (13:00 EDT).  This event is expected to be weaker than the severe geomagnetic storm from earlier in the week.  SWPC forecasters are calling for Moderate (G2) geomagnetic storm conditions beginning June 27 and continuing into June 28.  The attached image, courtesy of NASA/ESA SOHO/LASCO shows the coronal mass ejection erupting from the Sun in two images taken about 45 minutes apart.  In that time, the ejection traveled about 2.5 million miles.
