A CME [coronal mass ejection] might be heading for Earth. It was hurled into space on Jan 14th (1333 UT) by a C4-class explosion in the magnetic canopy of southern sunspot AR2925: movie.
Given the CME’s southern trajectory, much of it will miss Earth. Nevertheless, say NOAA forecasters, a glancing blow is possible late on Jan 16th to midday on Jan. 17th.
