On Wednesday, Nov. 1st, at 1630 GMT SOHO coronagraphs spotted a full-halo coronal mass ejection billowing away from the vicinity of sunspot group 9214 at 558 km/s (or faster). The CME, which first appeared as a large bubble over the Sun's southeast quadrant, could strike Earth's magnetosphere on Friday or Saturday and trigger geomagnetic activity.
