Looks like the X class flare was from region 2239, near the eastern
limb, so a CME might be a miss.

The filament event has thrown off a CME which is sheduled to impact the
magnetosphere around 1800z on the 6th. The NOAA animation is quite
dramatic and it looks like we will get it dead centre. the radio effect
of this is somewhat dependent on the direction of the field when it
arrives, but expect aurora and reduced LF signal levels from 6/7th for
some following nights.
The region numbered 2335 I think which is fairly central has thrown off
an X2.7 flare just after 2300z. Expect another possible CME arriving any
time after 2400z on the 7/8th. If both of these reconnect we could
experience long period of poor LF propagation.
