A coronal mass ejection (CME) that hit Earth on March 3, 2024, sparked G2 – Moderate geomagnetic storming with widespread Stable Auroral Red (SAR) arcs over the Baltics and Russia.

Filament eruption produces large CME, slight graze possible

Filament eruption produces large CME, slight graze possible

A solar filament eruption centered near S35E50 took place around 20:00 UTC on March 5, 2024, producing a large coronal mass ejection (CME) which is expected to slightly graze Earth late March 8. G1 – Minor geomagnetic storms are possible on March 9 due to the combined effects of a negative polarity CH HSS and this CME.
