http://www.thesuntoday.org – I woke up to this event, aptly described in an email from a colleague – “Never seen anything like this before – spectacular”. It really is just amazing! Here are videos of a prominence eruption from 304, 171 and 211 Angstrom channel cameras on SDO. Also included is a video from the LASCO C2 coronagraph aboard the SOHO spacecraft. This event produced M2.5 x-ray solar flare and a moderate proton storm. There are no major concerns for space weather.
