Farside Blast - 23rd March

The nearside of the sun is virtually blank at the moment all bar a few small sunspots, but the train of spots that was with us a couple of weeks ago now is on the farside, and judging by this coronal mass ejection that happened at 13.00ut on the 23rd March they are still quite active.  NASAs SOHO observatory orbiting above Earth recorded the expanding cloud which poses no threat to our planet.
