Q: How much matter is contained in a typical CME ?
A: Typical values are 1 to 10 billion tons of material (1016 to 1017 grams), in the form of a large cloud of charged particles.

Q: How fast do the CMEs travel ?
A: A coronal mass ejection can make the 93-million-mile journey to Earth in just three to four days. This implies an average speed of about one million miles per hour.

Q: Do all CMEs affect the Earth ?
A: No. Because the Sun can eject matter in any direction, only some of the CMEs will actually be directed towards Earth. (See the next question regarding "CMEs" versus "halo CMEs".) But even among those CMEs which are Earth-directed, some will affect Earth more than others. The different qualities of a CME which can determine its "geo-effectiveness" include the amount of material ejected, the speed at which it travels, and the strength and direction of the magnetic field carried by the cloud of charged particles.

Q: What's the difference between a "CME" and a "Halo CME" ?
A: The difference is primarily a matter of perspective. Coronal mass ejection (CME) is the name given to an ejection of a large amount of matter from the Sun's outer atmosphere. These ejections typically comprise millions of tons of material in the form of charged particles, and can be seen because the material reflects sunlight. When one of these ejections is directed towards the Earth (or conversely, directly away from the Earth), it looks like a roughly circular "halo" surrounding the Sun. The "halo CMEs" then are those CMEs which are more likely to impact the Earth than those which are shot out at right angles to the Earth-Sun line.

“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.” – Carl Sagan

The other half of NASA's Living with a Star program, the Radiation Belt Storm Probes are scheduled to go up in roughly a month. Wonder how long it will take for public data...

Whilst I was reading about the RBSPs above, I stumbled across this:

~ To distinguish between a host of theories developed over the years on plasma movement in those near-Earth environs, RBSP scientists have designed a suite of instruments to answer three broad questions. Where do the extra energy and particles come from? Where do they disappear to, and what sends them on their way? How do these changes affect the rest of Earth's magnetic environment, the magnetosphere? In addition to its broad range of instruments, the RBSP mission will make use of two spacecraft in order to better map out the full spatial dimensions of a particular event and how it changes over time. ~

Very interesting to me as info gained will kind of 'bring it home' to earth...a more 'tangible' connection as it were.

Be sure to watch the vid showing the effects of a large storm in 2003 on the radiation belts.

EDIT: I meant to say another part...not the other part. The LWS program has a lot of stuff going on.

but i am throwing it out for a good read.

it really gets into CMEs and goes way....way back in time.
the writer gets into cycles of CME's and flares and solar storm strengths that do not following the typical solar cycles.

after reading this i think the 7.6mph CME that just happened just might be one of the fastest ever recorded! and that may include the super storm from 1859.

loved this bit:

"This CME had everything going for it. It was fast: In just 17 hours, the
cloud swept across the entire inner solar system at a speed of 5 million
mph (8 million km/h). The dense wall of plasma also possessed a
southward-pointing magnetic field, which enhanced its potential impact.
At 4h40m UT September 2, part of this monster plasma cloud brushed past
Earth.

Our planet resides in a protective bubble created by its magnetic field
and ions trapped inside it. Within minutes of the clouds impact, the
entire Sun-facing hemisphere of Earth's magnetic bubble was compressed
until it reached the outer atmosphere's fringes. The blow instantly
affected the ozone layer, reducing this ultraviolet-absorbing gas so
much -- by about 5 percent -- that it took years to recover to pre-storm
levels."

Lockheed Martin 22-Apr-2010 9:06 AM
PALO ALTO, Calif., April 22, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --Spectacular "first light" images and data from the three state-of-the art instruments on NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) were unveiled yesterday morning by NASA. The SDO spacecraft was launched aboard a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on February 11, 2010.
Two of the SDO instruments were built at the Solar and Astrophysics Laboratory of the Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) Advanced Technology Center (ATC) in Palo Alto. The Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA), a suite of four telescopes, provides an unprecedented view of the solar corona, taking images that span at least 1.3 solar diameters in multiple wavelengths nearly simultaneously, at a resolution of 0.6 arc-seconds and at a cadence of 10 seconds or better. The Helioseismic and Magnetic Imager (HMI), designed in collaboration with Professor Philip Scherrer, HMI Principal Investigator, and other scientists at Stanford University, studies the origin of solar variability and attempts to characterize and understand the Sun's interior and magnetic activity. The third SDO instrument, the Extreme Ultraviolet Variability Experiment (EVE), measures fluctuations in the Sun's ultraviolet output. EVE was built by the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) at the University of Colorado.
"We could not be more pleased with what we're seeing from AIA. The 4096 by 4096 pixel Charge-Coupled Device (CCD) on this instrument gives us images that would require 12 high definition televisions to display them at their native resolution," said physicist - and Principal Investigator of AIA - Dr. Alan Title of the ATC. "AIA is now providing the kind of data we need to unravel mysteries of the Sun that have been just beyond our grasp. Looking at a razor sharp full Sun in a broad range of temperature bands every 10 seconds will give us unprecedented insight into the processes that determine the evolution of the corona."

the Sun during a flare can strike neutral atoms (usually carbon dioxide) in the atmosphere so hard that they knock loose an electron, creating a free electron and a positive ion. If enough of these electrons and ions build up in the atmosphere, they can interfere with radio waves. That is what was happening to the Mars Express.

Plasma Waves Move Faster Than Shockwaves
July 20, 2012

................More than 99 percent of the matter found in the universe resembles nothing like what we have here on Earth, according to scientists from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.

Instead of materials that we, as humans, can touch and see, and motions that we expect to exist like that of gravity, most of the universe is actually governed by rules that react to such things as magnetic force or electrical charge. For example, a cup that we would see sitting on a table on Earth adhering to the force of gravity, elsewhere in the universe this cup might be magnetized and attracted to a metal ceiling above, floating upward, yet resting in the space between the ceiling and the table, balanced by the forces of gravity and magnetism....................

.................Wilson and colleagues studied coronal mass ejections (CMEs) — solar material that explodes off the Sun traveling through space at excessive speed. They found that these CMEs move so much faster than the background solar wind that they create shock waves which are similar to those produced by a supersonic jet when it breaks the sound barrier in our atmosphere................

look at this
VERY FAST FARSIDE CME (UPDATED): On July 23rd, a coronal mass ejection (CME) blasted away from the sun with rare speed: 3400 km/s or 7.6 million mph. CMEs moving this fast occur only once every ~5 to 10 years. The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory recorded the cloud's rapid departure from the sun:

now they are classifying this as a Rare or R
well there very own video would clearly put this as an ER or extremely rare.
they even state it only happens once every 5 to 10 year....that and the speed would clearly put it in the classification of ER
Quoting: psyoptics

Let's calculate:

Speed of light=186,000 km/s. 10% of that speed=18, 600 km/s. 5% of that speed=9,300 km/s. 2.5% of that speed=4,650 km/s. The speed of that CME is around 2% the speed of light!!!!

Re: SOLAR WATCH * 312 M & 25 X FLARES starting 3-7-2011 (Updated Daily)
look at this
VERY FAST FARSIDE CME (UPDATED): On July 23rd, a coronal mass ejection (CME) blasted away from the sun with rare speed: 3400 km/s or 7.6 million mph. CMEs moving this fast occur only once every ~5 to 10 years. The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory recorded the cloud's rapid departure from the sun:

now they are classifying this as a Rare or R
well there very own video would clearly put this as an ER or extremely rare.
they even state it only happens once every 5 to 10 year....that and the speed would clearly put it in the classification of ER

Let's calculate:

Speed of light=186,000 km/s. 10% of that speed=18, 600 km/s. 5% of that speed=9,300 km/s. 2.5% of that speed=4,650 km/s. The speed of that CME is around 2% the speed of light!!!!

186,000 miles per second.. 700 million miles per hour.
