Report for 1/20/12

Sunspot 1401 put on a show for us this week, causing several space weather events. According to the NASA Goddard Space Weather Lab, strong geomagnetic storms are possible this weekend due to a full-halo coronal mass ejection (CME) that occurred yesterday. The CME occurred when sunspot 1401 erupted around 16:30 UTC. It produced not only the CME, but an M3-class solar flare.
