CME predictions

Whenever a CME goes off, it is possible from some of the data received from different solar observatories (especially the space-based ones) to predict the path of the ejected material. As part of our update on this particular event (which is of particular interest to us as we will be observing it!), we have included some simulation results from


The following is from the Naval Research Laboratory Solar Physics Branch

H3DMHD predict CME (March 15, 2013, 06:54: COR2A/B) driven shock will arrive at Earth at 00UT on March 17, 2013.

Estimated speed of CME from COR2 of STEREO-A/B is ~1000 km/s.

Source region of this CME located at N09W02.



Here are some links to the animations from the simulation results.

Thanks to RAL Space for bring these to our attention!
