CME Scoreboard: Prediction Detail

Prediction for CME (2023-03-13T10:53:00-CME-001)

CME Observed Time: 2023-03-13T10:53Z
CME Note: CME seen to the NW in STEREO Ahead COR2 coronagraph associated with a filament eruption seen near N30E02 which erupts with significant deflection to the north and west as seen in SDO/GOES 304 imagery around 2023-03-13T09:54Z. Arrival signature notes: this arrival could alternatively be attributed to a predicted glancing blow from 2023-03-12T19:24Z CME, although this is less likely due to the earlier arrival at STEREO A. LASSOS discussion summary about this signature: this is likely a strong glancing blow from a CME, with a sheath and a shock-like structure.
CME Shock Arrival Time: 2023-03-15T03:48Z

Notes: The associated CME is surprisingly mostly NW, with not that much expansion, but modelling shows that edge of this CME may arrive mid UT day 15-Mar. Considering the location the expectation was for more a semi-halo shaped CME. Due to modelled speed and the chance of a glancing blow, and that apparently filaments can have more stable Bz orientations which could be southward or northward I suppose went with a brief peak Kp of 6. Probably an over forecast.
Lead Time: 26.72 hour(s)
