Powerful farside eruption captured by Solar Orbiter in unique image

Powerful farside eruption captured by Solar Orbiter in unique image

The ESA/NASA Solar Orbiter spacecraft has captured the largest solar prominence eruption ever observed in a single image together with the full solar disc. This latest event took place on February 15, 20221 on the far side of the Sun and extended millions of…

Large farside eruption creates impressive coronal mass ejection (CME)

Large farside eruption creates impressive coronal mass ejection (CME)

A powerful eruption took place on the farside of the Sun at around 22:23 UTC on February 15, 2022, creating an impressive coronal mass ejection (CME). This is one of the largest CMEs of Solar Cycle 25. The source region for this event is beyond the east limb and…

Plasma filament eruptions detected on the Sun, Earth-directed CME possible

Plasma filament eruptions detected on the Sun, Earth-directed CME possible

Two plasma filament eruptions were detected on the Sun on July 5, 2018, and it seems at least one weak Earth-directed Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) was produced; ETA July 9 or 10. In addition, a relatively strong farside eruption took place on July 5 and its CME (not…

Major solar flare erupts near the eastern limb, no Earth-directed CMEs

Major solar flare erupts near the eastern limb, no Earth-directed CMEs

A pair of solar flares erupted near the eastern limb of the Sun at about 00:55 and 03:25 UTC on July 23, 2017, and were observed in STEREO-A EUVI 195 imagery. The source is Active Region 2665 which produced a long-duration M2.4 solar flare and Earth-directed CME on…

Major solar flares erupting behind the northeast limb

Major solar flares erupting behind the northeast limb

A major solar flare was detected behind Sun's northeast limb on September 1, 2014. STEREO Behind spacecraft, watching farside of the Sun, captured what is most likely an X-class solar flare starting at 11:05 UTC.This major solar flare was associa

Farside CME hurled toward Mercury and Venus

Farside CME hurled toward Mercury and Venus

An active region on the far side of the sun erupted on October 14 and hurled a significant coronal mass ejection toward Mercury and Venus. Analysts at the Goddard Space Flight Center expect the cloud to hit the innermost planet on October 15 around 08:30 UTC….
