Kreutz comet SOHO-344 (disc. S. Hoenig) observed 2001/8/15, so far only in C3 data. Last observed 2001/8/15 at 11:42 UT, at 9.6 Rs, PA 243 Proton fluxes still high in both coronagraphs following the halo CME and proton storm late on 2001/8/15.
01:54 UT N West Narrow bright front from same/nearby region as previous event. Further loops/fronts follow at 05:30, 10:30 02:30 UT N East Bright loop front with cavity and core, arcades follow, fairly prolonged 06:30 UT S Pole Faint spray followed by narrow bright front 23:30 UT HALO Faint front first discernible in S West, is a thick wide fast bright front filling SW quadrant by 23:54 and a FULL HALO CME by 00:06, although initially fairly faint onver N Pole. First protons detected 00:31 reaching 'storm levels' by 01:31. Data still degraded in both coronagraphs at time of writing. No EIT or GOES X-ray signature. ~1050 km/s at PA 210 (SW), with rapid deceleration, though data spare since most C3 images presently unavailable. Prolonged gusty outflow in W and SW. AR 9557b would presently be almost at central meridian on the far side C2 Running Difference movie C3 Running Difference movie
02:06 - 04:32 UT Temporary data gap 10:32 UT W Limb Fairly fast ragged asymmetric front with cavity, possibly residual to earlier halo event
