This morning, Feb. 14th, one and possibly two coronal mass ejections (CMEs) billowed over the sun's western limb.
The source of the blasts appears to be a complex of sunspots (1045 and 1048) just now disappearing over the western limb. If so, NASA's STEREO Ahead spacecraft would have had a direct view of the double eruption. STEREO images are temporarily unavailable, however; we'll bring them to you as soon as possible. The CMEs were not directed at Earth, so our planet should feel no effects from the expanding clouds.
