Is there any data showing what side of the sun solar flares and cme occur? As in relation to the position of earth or other planets? Something similar to this photo. Even just written description would be great.

Thanks

Solar flares and CME’s can come from any sunspot on the solar disk, so from Earths viewpoint there can be solar flares at the backside of the sun. That’s why NASA launched the two stereo satellites to monitor what’s happening on the other side. You can check stereo imagery on our website.

be aware that not every solar flare has an accompanied CME.
