CME Impact Possible
May 10, 2021 @ 19:25 UTC
A faint, partial halo CME was observed on May 10th following an Earth facing filament eruption. A weak CME passage may be possible by May 13th. Only a minor geomagnetic enhancement is currently expected.

Filament Eruption / 2822 Minor Eruption (UPDATED)
May 9, 2021 @ 15:20 UTC
A filament located near center disk erupted beginning at 10:00 UTC today (May 9). Here is a look at the event using the SDO/AIA 304a channel. Imagery courtesy of STEREO Ahead shows a coronal mass ejection (CME) leaving the Sun and could possibly have an Earth directed component. This will only be confirmed once updated Earth facing coronagraph imagery is available.

It should also be noted that a long duration C-Class eruption was observed around AR 2822 and may also be associated with a CME. More to follow on this if necessary.

UPDATE #2: Earth facing coronagraph imagery is now updated. The first CME resulting from the filament eruption appears to be a faint, partial halo eruption. It is possible that there could be an Earth directed component, but a noteworthy impact is unlikely. The second CME resulting from the long duration C-Flare appears to be headed mostly the east and away from Earth. A final update will be provided once a CME tracking model by NOAA/SWPC is available.
