X-Class Solar Eruption 8 Nov. 2013

From video description by SolarWatcher:

A Major X1.1 Solar Flare was reported at 4:29UT this morning around active region 11890. The energetic eruption occurred close to an earth-facing position on the solar disk which would imply the resulting coronal mass ejection should have components heading Earths way. A very bright Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) has been observed at the time of making this video, and possible impact on earths magnetic field is forecasted to occur on November 10th which should provide strong geomagnetic storm activity late November 10 into the 11th, the bulk mass seems to be heading well south of the ecliptic and a glancing blow would be the likely result. Associated with this eruption was a 10cm Radio Burst (TenFlare) reaching 1000 Solar Flux Units lasting 5 minutes and a Type II/IV Sweep Frequency Event.
