M1.7 Flare / Major CME April 16, 2012

M1.7 Solar Flare / Major Coronal Mass Ejection
A major eruption on the solar corona that peaked to M1.7 intensity at 17:45UTC on April 16th also produced a major coronal mass ejection (CME) into space. As this active region is not fully rotated onto the earth facing side of the disk it is unlikely that this CME is directed to the earth therefore should not be geoeffective.
