Long Duration Flare and CME

At the time of this post we are currently seeing a LDE (long duration event) flare from a new sunspot region located off of the NE limb. New Region 1402 is a large DHO class Sunspot Region with a spot count of 7. This ongoing flare is currently at C 6.4, and the latest Stereo images are showing that a CME is accompanying this event. Pictured below are images from SDO EVE, SOHO, SDO AIA 171 telescope, and Stereo Behind, of this ongoing flare and CME. Images Courtesy of NASA SDO, Stereo, SOHO, and GOES.
