Comment Section

  • A slow ICME with extremely long duration as seen at 1 AU
  • Seems an excellent example of the so-called "global" CME, or longitudinal extended CME (Jie)
    • COR2 A: symmetric above both east and west limbs along the equator, indicating a global feature
    • COR2 B: same as COR2, symmetric above both limbs
    • Combining COR2 A and B, it seems a global CME, surrounding the entire solar equator
    • Also a "stealth" CME: Need to check AIA and EUVI data to confirm the source
    • There is no apparent halo-like feature as seen from LASCO

  • Is the CME over-expanding (Gosling et al. )? pressure profile needed
