A large filament erupted on the southeast quadrant of the Sun during the early morning UTC hours of November 22, 2015. The eruption began at approximately 07:30 UTC and launched a coronal mass ejection (CME) into space.
Although LASCO coronagraph imagery is still not available, it seems this CME will miss our planet or have a weak glancing blow at best.
