As Seen by STEREO-B: The Carrington-Class CME of 2012

  • Released Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Like SDO, STEREO-B did not have a direct view of the coronal mass ejection (CME) launched by the sun on July 23, 2012. However, the active region involved was very close to the limb of the sun (lower left quadrant) and STEREO-B provided an excellent view of plasma launched in both ultraviolet light and the white-light coronagraph.
