Wondrous images from Nasa’s Solar Dynamics Observatory of the spectacular eruption that accompanied an M-2 (medium-sized) solar flare on June 7.  [Image/video credit: NASA SDO]And, via the Professor, Geeked on Goddard provides further video courtesy Helioviewer.org and a narration by The Sun Today.As LittleSDOHMI notes

This Earth-directed CME [Coronal Mass Ejection] is moving at 1400 km/s according to NASA models. Due to its angle, however, effects on Earth should be fairly small. Nevertheless, it may generate space weather effects here on Earth in a few days.
