Another CME from AR1504: O-type CME
## NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Space Weather Center ( SWC )
## Message Type: Space Weather Alert
## Message Issue Date: 2012-06-14T17:30:00Z
## Message ID: 20120614-AL-001
## Alert Summary:
Type O CME detected by STEREO-A COR2 / STEREO-B COR2
Start time of the event: 2012-06-14T14:09Z.
Estimated speed: ~ 1364 km/s.
Estimated opening half-angle: 50 deg.
Direction (lon./lat.): -9/-20 in Heliocentric Earth Ecliptic coordinates.
This CME is associated with M1.5 flare peaked at around 2012-06-14T14:08Z that was produced by AR1504.
Based on preliminary heliospheric modeling carried out at NASA GSFC Space Weather Center, it is estimated that the CME may impact spacecrafts near the Earth orbit , Spitzer, MSL, and Mars. The roughly estimated expected range of the Kp index is 5-7.
Simulations indicate that the leading edge of the CME will reach (plus minus 7 hours):
at Earth : 2012-06-16T10:19Z
at Spitzer : 2012-06-17T04:08Z
at MSL : 2012-06-18T11:33Z
at Mars : 2012-06-18T18:46Z
PLEASE NOTE: the estimated speed and the propagation direction are ROUGH estimates (but to the best of our knowledge). Updates on this event will be provided when available.
Activity ID: 2012-06-14T14:09:00-CME-001.
