An eruption on 23rd of July, originating behind West limb - UPDATE: Might have generated one of the fastest CME's ever recorded


UPDATE!!!! 25/07/2012

This eruption may have generated the fastest CME ever recorded... To be followed up!



This morning, on 23rd of July, at 02:15, a solar eruption could be witnessed, expanding from the West limb. This eruption likely originated from AR11520 which disappeared around the west limb a few days ago.


A combined movie of the eruption (SWAP 174 (yellow) and AIA 304 (orange)) can be found on the site below:

Note how the SWAP images allow to follow the eruption further away than the SDO FOV.
