R1 (Minor) Event on 4 Nov and subsequent Coronal Mass Ejection **UPDATE**

R1 (Minor) Event on 4 Nov and subsequent Coronal Mass Ejection **UPDATE**
published: Saturday, November 07, 2015 04:43 UTC

An R1 (Minor Radio Blackout) event occurred due to an M3 X-ray flare on 04 Nov at 1352 UTC (04 Nov at 0852 EDT) as seen in this image from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory. The flare had associated radio sweep signatures often associated with a coronal mass ejection (CME). SWPC forecaster analysis of SOHO/LASCO coronagraph imagery concluded a partial halo CME did, in fact, occur with this event and is likely to have an Earth-directed component. ****UPDATE - A G1-Minor geomagnetic storm WATCH has been issued for 7 Nov.  The expected arrival of the CME is late on the 7th/early on the 8th of Nov (UTC).**** Please continue to check our website for any updated information regarding this event.
