Have seen proton storms before on SOHO, but not often like this. Large Coronal Mass Ejection Update / Proton Storm 632647

Coronagraph imagery is now complete following the X8.2 solar flare on Sunday. The full halo coronal mass ejection (CME) was so powerful and widespread, there actually appears to be an Earth directed component, most evident when viewing the LASCO C3 (blue color) video. If so, an impact to our geomagnetic field may be possible by September 12th. More updates once an updated CME tracking model becomes available. Video below.

Proton Bombardment
The video above released by LASCO shows a "snowstorm" of speckles in the aftermath of the large eruption off the west limb on Sunday. This happens when sensors on board the SOHO spacecraft become saturated with energetic protons blasted away from the flare site at millions of miles per hour. Pretty awesome! Unless of course you happen to be a satellite operator.
