Sun  ID: 4099

Multiple CMEs of October 2013

In this research model run, the Sun has launched three coronal mass ejections (CMEs) which may merge into a single front as it expands into the solar system. These events are sometimes called 'cannibal' CMEs.

This model run is based on estimated parameters from solar events of October 23-24, 2013
