A large solar filament, which was stretching more than 857 780 km (533 000 miles) last week, finally erupted at approximately 09:25 UTC on February 21, 2015. 

A partial halo CME (or sequence of CMEs) was later observed in SOHO LASCO coronagraph imagery emerging from the southwest. The filament erupted on the farside of the Sun, in the south central portion of the disk.

  1. I have a little table fountain here, an orange couloured cup of the shape of a hat with a disk under which is water, and on the disk there are bigger and less bigger orange stones, and there is a little pump on the ground which has to be linked through a little hole with a little orange volcano of stone with a lamp inside by a little plastic part, sitting directly in the middle, surrounded by the stones, and on the top of this little orange lightened volcano of stone is a little orange ball turning round by the force of the water pumped up.

    On friday, february 20th, everything was okay. The ball was turning around.

    But on saturday, february 21, the ball didn’t want to turn around. It striked.

    I tried in the late evening hours, but it striked. No chance, I relinked everything, I cleaned the little ball, the water swapped over, the plastic part fell through the little hole, everything broke down, a work of much pacience, and finally without result. So I left it in the best state as possible.

    I came to late to the Supermarket against 22 hours and was shelted for coming too late. Because of the little ball striking.

    But, oh WUNDER: when I came back, after 22 hours, this february 21, the little ball was rotating like a fool, and has not finished since then, it is rotating like a fool, around and around.

    I personally feel all CMEs, every wind blow, because of an extreme sensibility, especially of a super sensible brain, and I guess a lot that this event is due to this CME of this day.
