Astronomie - Erde gerichtete CME


EARTH-DIRECTED CME: A filament of magnetism straddling the sun's southern hemisphere erupted on May 2nd (not May 3rd as was previous reported) and hurled a CME into space. Modeling by NOAA analysts suggests that the CME will reach Earth on May 6th. For storm probabilities, scroll past this movie of the expanding cloud:
Forecasters estimate a 45% chance of geomagnetic storms when the CME arrives. Bright moonlight and summer twilight will probably overwhelm any auroras around the Arctic Circle. The Antarctic Circle is much darker. Stay tuned for Southern Lights
