SOHO/LASCO observed a HALO CME on September 28, 2012. Event is first seen
in C2 at 00:00 UT on the Northwest. A full asymmetric HALO develops with cavity
and core by 00:36 UT. The event continues into the C3 field beginning
00:18 to 06:30 UT leaving the C3 field at 30 Rsun in the West.
Increased proton flux is seen in the white light images.
Time/height measurements were marked to 4 points in C2 with speeds
of 1176.2 Km/sec at position angle 300 degrees. The event is marked to 9 points
in C3. Speeds average through both fields to 1034.8 Km/sec at PA 300 degrees.
Acceleration -44.42 m/sec^2.
SDO/AIA : 193A and 304A show activation along a filament beginning 9/27 21:24 UT
The filament is located on disk in the Northwest at [N09, W31] west of and
adjacent to AR11577. The filament erupts and a dual ribbon flare is produced
22:42-00:24 UT with a dimming and a wave across the west hemisphere.
The event finishes with bright post arcade.
STEREO: Beacon Data
COR2 A, 17:40-02:25 UT data gap. partial halo over the East. CME out of the FOV
at first frame.
EUVI A, 15:35-02:55 UT data gap. n/a.
COR2 B, 15:39-03:24 UT data gap. Partial halo over the West out to edge of FOV.
EUVI B, No EUVI data after 14:46 UT. n/a.
NOAA reports a C3.7 Xray flare 23:36/23:57/00:34 UT associated to the ribbon event.
GOES13 shows a rise in proton flux. Particles >10MeV peaked above storm levels.
The observation of this event is considered 'FAIR'. This CME is determined a FRONTSIDED event.
