It does NOT look like its heading directly towards Earth — may graze nearby — but its hard to tell at this point….
For sure it is not directly Earth facing…which is good news — not that a medium sized CME would damage earth.
That being said — watch for earthquakes over the next few days after the CME arrives.
Normal CME arrival time is 4-7 days. Some faster, some slower.
We are NOT talking anything that could physically harm you on earth.. just to quell any 2012 rumors 🙂
Just a weekly occurrence from the Sun (actually it has ramped up to almost daily lately).
