The slow CME produced by the giant filament eruption from June 4 could give Earth a glancing blow. The impact should be very weak but there could be a minor geomagnetic enhancement on June 7. High latitude aurora watchers may get to see some enhanced auroral activity. Let’s hope for some pretty light shows.

Here is a look at the CME in the lower left of the video created using the SOHO/LASCO C2/C3 coronagraphs.
