Double-Blast of M-Class Solar Flares (M3 and M1) & A CME Might Be Heading For Earth - INCOMING CME: A CME might be heading for Earth. It was propelled into space by a double-blast of M-class solar flares (M3 and M1) on August 17th around 18:30 UT. SOHO (the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory) caught the CME emerging from the blast site, sunspot AR1818:The expanding cloud is not squarely Earth-directed. If it hits our planet's magnetic field, the blow will probably be a glancing one.
