02:30 UT S West Very fast bright front fills quadrant and disrupts streamers to N and S. N East streamer also disrupted. By 03:30 very faint extensions visible around entire C2 occultor. 1388 km/s, proton event. Major flare from AR 9415? Large loops in S West vanish at 02:36, followed by EIT wave/dimming. Cavity and loop core follow in S West, gusty outflow along N West streamer. C2 Running Difference movie. C3 Running Difference movie. 13:54 UT S West Wide faint spray 20:30 UT N West Narrow bright front along streamer 23:06 UT S West Narrow bright front along streamer
