Don't get to excited over it, Pawn. Geomagnetic-wise, it was a
non-event. It looks like it did launch a CME, but it wasn't
earth-directed. It sure makes for a darned impressive picture,
It looks like it erupted pretty close to sunspot region 19. This
could be a sign of interesting things to come as that sunspot group
rotates into an earth-pointing position. There wasn't a significant
flare associated with the event, however.
