Planner: K. Schenk

Event times are first frame seen in C2 camera unless otherwise noted.

Point of Interest

Planet Jupiter in C3 field from East side, as of 4/27 08:00 UT.
Planet Saturn in C3 field of view from East side as of 5/1 12:00 UT.

Soho-111 C2 MPG Ratio
Soho-111 C2 MPG Running Difference


03:06 UT  NN West	Rising loop cluster in NNWest slowly breaks free.
			Considered probable backsided filament eruption.

12:54 UT  S East	Wide jet-like CME event.

15:00 - 21:30 UT	Temporary Data Gap


05:30 UT  S East	Very large event. Wide loop front.
			At 06:30 UT a second event occurs with bright
			helmet shaped front.  Continued outflow.


00:06 UT  S West	Small roughed LE with looping structure.

02:30 UT  S Pole	Rough LE event.  CME seen after SOHO-111
			dissappears behind C2 occulting disk (???)
			A very faint partial HALO event is seen
