Enormous Solar Filament Erupts – Tropical Storm Forms

The filament is the long strip on the right that looks like something from a Dulux paint advert. A small ‘pizza slice’ coronal hole is just passing center disc, with a much larger but weak one in coming (top right).

This is the last 48 hours in 193 Angstroms.

As the filament was lifting off a Tropical storm formed in the Indian Ocean.

After a quiet day yesterday with just one M5 earthquake, today there were three and an M6.2 in the Fiji Region, thankfully very deep and away from populous areas of human habitation.
