At around 3:45AM AEST on the 17th of April a large Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) was observed around the eastern limb of the Sun. While spectacular, the ejected material is not directed Earthward, but the sunspot region responsible is about to rotate on the visible Sun and may produce geo-effective CMEs in the coming days.
