POSSIBLE GRAZING CME IMPACT: A coronal mass ejection (CME) might have hit Earth’s magnetic field on April 2nd @ 0100 UT. Discontinuities in solar wind data suggest a grazing impact. This could be the CME launched by an X1.3-class solar flare on March 30th (sunspot AR2975). Minor G1-class geomagnetic storms are possible as Earth passes through the CME’s magnetized wake.
