Spectacular CME, active region approaching Earth

A sunspot located just behind the sun's eastern limb erupted during the waning hours of May 9th, hurling a spectacular coronal mass ejection into space: movie. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory photographed hot magnetic loops towering over the edge of the sun in the aftermath of the explosion: must-see. Earth was not in the line of fire this time, but the active region is approaching the Earthside of the sun, so future blasts could be geoeffective. Stay tuned. (SpaceWeather)

Since this flair has happened we are getting unual radio signals in the Oberon area with FM radio signal fron Sydney overriding the stations from the central west & some of the lower band V digital tv signals being affected.
