SOHO/LASCO C2 observed a partial asymmetric HALO CME already in progress
on February 12, 2010. First frame observed of the event was 13:31 UT. Material
spanned 299 degrees wide. The majority of the event was in the NE at approximately
41 degrees. The LE had already left the C2 field of view. No velocity measurements
could be properly taken in C2.
C3 showed the event already in progress in its first frame at 13:42. The LE at 47 degrees
was already at 10.9 Rsun. We measured at 4 points out to 17.8 Rsun for a very rough
calculation of 552.2 Km/sec at PA 41 degrees on the last image before going into
a DSN gap period.
EIT and LASCO data was not recorded during a loss of DSN coverage from
Feb 12 2010 01:35 - 13:00 UT. We have no EIT data for this event.
GOES shows a M8.3 xray flare at 11:19-11:28 UT claiming AR 11046.
STEREO B EUVI shows a flare of AR 11046 at 11:25 UT.
This flare is most probably associated with the CME observed in the LASCO fields.
